Has anyone seen the newest artist renderings for the C6??? They look to much like a viper, and they are to edgy for me. Oh, by the way, I'm talking about the drawings in May 2001 Road and Track. They should let me design it :D :D (j/k), but I'd like to see a return to a body style similar to the Sharks.

ps...I'm not a professional car designer, but I drew a C6, and I'd like to drive it more than any concepts I've seen. :J

In the market
I've see the pics that where in MotorTrend's September 2000 issue. The car looks pretty interesting. Somewhat simmilar to a Ferrari 550 I think. IMO the Corvette should have a distinctive look all it's own. At a distance I have trouble telling a C5 from a 4th gen Camaro or Firebird. I dont have that difficutie with any other generation of Corvette.

Weather or not the designers should return to the Shark body style I dont know. What ever GM comes out with it should be distinctive and definatlly Corvette.

Max,
Scan your drawing and let's see it :cool: If you don't have a scanner get a digital picture of it or send me a copy and I'll scan it for ya.

You diffenently have SHARKS in your blood :D I have always liked the idea of the midengine, like the XP-882 or the XP-880 :j

working on it...

I'll definately scan a pic for everyone to see, but first I have to clean it up a bit and make it more presentable :D. When I do get it posted, you'll definately see the shark influence. :J

Hopefully a pic of my drawing...

My computer :r has been on the fritz lately, so I don't know if attaching my pic will work, but here goes anyways.

I like it - I think they should bring back more of the shark curves too! :beer

Thanks BBB454. Of course, I'm still working on it, and debating whether or not to add color. I might take it over to the college computer lab and make it nice and pretty in photoshop:D . But before I do that, I still have some pencil work to do.

For those of you who are curious, my C6 started as a simple outlining of a ZO6, then I just started adjusting lines here and there :cool . It ended up to be a modern Shark :D :D

Definitely a winner. Reminds me of the classic "Shark." GM factory Corvette with sidepipes, didn't they do that one year (option)?

Your drawing looks pretty good.. :cool: is this a Mid-Engine??? Yea color would be neat too ;)

By the way Max what is your major? Maybe you are a young Zora or a Dave M. and we are lucky to see the beginnings :D

As of current:D I'm an Art Major with my concentration being Graphic Design. I'm not sure where I'll go from there. Right now, I probably won't get into much car design, although, I admit, it would be awesome to do that for a living. I just don't think I have quite enough talent in drawing cars :D . I'd like to stay in Colorado after graduation, so I really won't be close enough to anything for doing major stuff like that. But I'll keep doing it for fun.

max:J

oh yeah, almost forgot, as of right now, it's not a mid-engine vette. I'm thinking it has a modified version of Gm's new 8.1L V8, maybe an aluminum one??? :J (496 ci. sounds better doesn't it:D ). The new C6 should have a package making it a factory viper eater. Wouldn't that be fun??? YES IT WOULD!!!

You constantly amaze me with the things you come up with! :L I haven't heard "TOUGH" used as a "BOSS" term to describe something in thirty years or so. :L

Keep it alive Jay! :upthumbs
