The new C8 Corvette - although likely slowly creeping out of the factory right now - is the hottest car of 2020. All those early buyers will likely miss out on special models, trims, and maybe body styles to come. We're going to see a convertible but, could we see a roadster? Factory widebody?! Jet powered with wings - don't hold your breath.
As a track day weapon, this would be a hoot! Image: Car MStyle Design
These renders come from Car MStyle Design on Facebook. The first delicious design I've chosen to show you is the roadster. By roadster this car is true to form. The term is thrown around far too liberally as not many cars come without a roof and, that is exactly what a roadster is defined as: a car with no roof at all. No hard or soft top. Completely roofless!
They could keep the blue stripe on the chin spoiler just like the silly yellow protectors Dodge provides. Image: Car MStyle Design
Certainly, anyone with a roadster should be careful where they park or who they upset. The lack of any roof makes it quite easy for any cynics to fill the interior with sputum and garbage. Thus is the roadster lifestyle - be careful who you upset and where you park. But none of that should matter because people absolutely love the C8 Corvette.
It looks a tad wider no? Image: Car MStyle Design
The roadster pictured even lacks a windshield. How cool would you be driving your new Corvette roadster with a full face helmet?! Or maybe go full 1930s racerboy and wear just goggles?! Either way, driving gloves are a must. Who am I kidding, this sounds fun once per year. As cool as this roadster looks, it is completely impractical for anything other than track use.
Not a fan of the wheels. Not at all. They look like a hard corner might break the spokes. Image: Car MStyle Design
The widebody is what you want. Look at those blistered hips! It looks like its just been stung by those 'murder hornets' we're all waiting around to kill us. I frankly think renders such as these inspire those builders who can actually bring concepts like this to life (kinda like the Magnum Hellcat?). Hopefully, someone decides to take their new C8 and start chopping it up like Doctor Frankenstein.
