This is the first of two GM-Trucks.com 2020 C8 Corvette exclusives.
CLICK HERE TO READ PART TWO

 

Images of the C8 mid-engine Corvette logo have been out in the open since late November. They showed up on a leaked key fob undergoing certification last fall with the FCC. The internet has run wild with speculation since but no-one has gotten their hands on a real digital version of the 2020 Corvette's logo. Only enthusiast renders based on the leaked fob.... Until now. 

 

GM-Trucks.com has the first exclusive look at the official logo in digital format. We won't comment specifically on how we obtained it. We can say it was obtained from publicly available files by a third party and passed along to us. 

 

Enjoy!

Hey guys. Longtime lurker here. I just noticed that if you go to that GM truck website, the poster of the photos and head honcho of that website is named Zane Merva. I'm guessing that this is Zerv. 

 

Not sure how many peeps from this forum go there, but the ZERV saga is quite entertaining.  And now they think Zane is Zerv.  LOL.

Of all that a Corvette is supposed to be, is this logo supposed engage some secret suspension setting, or maybe make the invisible to radar, while still allowing shiney paint?  Can't wait to see what the new onstar/satellite looks like, can't be a shark fin on a stingray can it?

Been on Corvette Forum it says since Feb. 99. Not quite as often as I used to be, but still enjoy my corvettes over the years. Same user name over there and here. 

This mid-engine corvette debate has been going on for a long time. Finally, it seems to be happening.

      General Motors expects its next-generation Corvette to boost sales significantly, and GM is staffing up to build the car. The current generation Corvette was introduced in January 2013. With the new Corvette set for an official launch this July, that means the Corvette design we all know and love is now six and a half years old. The last of the outgoing generation Corvettes - a black 2019 Z06 model -  has been donated to charity by GM. The final seventh-gen Corvette will be auctioned at the Barrett-Jackson Northeast sale in Connecticut June 28.
       

       
      GM will be adding a second shift to its Bowling Green, KY factory. That will boost jobs at the plant by 400. “The Corvette’s iconic status owes so much to the men and women of Bowling Green, where it has been built exclusively for almost 40 years,” said GM Chairman and CEO Mary Barra. “This is the workforce that can deliver a next-generation Corvette worthy of both its historic past and an equally exciting future, and today’s announcement gets us one step closer to its reveal on July 18.” GM has built more than 1 million Corvettes at the Bowling Green factory since it opened in 1981. The plant currently generates more than $76 million in state wages and $15 million in income tax. 
       

       
      GM-Trucks.com will bring you more information on the new Corvette once Chevrolet releases details.

      Yesterday we brought you an exclusive look at the new logo for the 2020 C8 Corvette in a digital high-resolution format. Although the logo had been previously rendered through a leaked key fob passing through FCC certification, GM-Trucks.com gave you the very first official version of the emblem in digital format. 
       
      Today, we've got part two and it's even better: 
      A brand new, never before seen, blacked out version of the 2020 Corvette's iconic emblem The corresponding gauge cluster startup animation Your first look at the brand new Corvette script  
      First things first, what's a startup animation? Well, these days a lot of new GM products use an LCD display in the gauge cluster, or even use a display as the entire gauge cluster. The C7 Corvette (and now C8) uses a large 8-ish inch screen for most of the gauge cluster.  When you open the door, the gauge cluster "starts up" showing an animation, usually with the Chevrolet logo or in this case the Corvette's logo and script. Our 2019 Silverado LTZ has a Chevy Logo animate on it's 4 inch gauge cluster display. 
       
      This is a C7's Gauge Cluster. See that huge screen? The C8 is going to have a variation of that. Maybe the same, maybe larger. 

       
      Interesting to note, this crossed flags emblem is not the same as the logo we leaked yesterday. Instead of a chrome surround it sports a blacked out trim. It looks mean, nasty, and one may presume it just may be destined for a performance variant of the Corvette. Is this the emblem for the rumored Zora model?
       
      We won't comment specifically on how we obtained this animation. We can say it was collected from publicly available file by a third party and passed along to us. 
       
      This is the gauge cluster start up animation for the up-level (Zora?) 2020 C8 Corvette
       
      Here's a closer look at that blacked out emblem variation

       
      And here's a closer look at the 2020 Corvette Logo Script- which has evolved from it's C7 form

       
      Here's the C7 logo and script for comparison

       
      What do you think? Are you excited for the Corvette to go mid-engine? Do you think Chevy's graphical updates to the logo and script are living up to the hype of the 2020 Corvette?
