An Interesting Take On What The Next-Generation C9 Chevrolet Corvette Would Look Like

Someone used a Ferrari F50 and a Chinese EV to predict how the C9 Corvette would look. The results are interesting

The Chevrolet Corvette C8 finally fulfilled the vision of a mid-engine Corvette. With the C8 Z06 on the way, it’s only natural to wonder what a C9 Corvette would look like. The C8 is often compared to a Ferrari 458 because of its mid-engine layout and overall aesthetics, but a digital artist that goes by the Instagram alias, ugur_sahin_design has taken that to another level. His design has been featured in a YouTube video by REC Anything and reveals an interesting, yet not very American take on a C9 Corvette.

It doesn’t take you long to realize, what you are looking at is actually a remodeled Ferrari F50. The design of the 1990s mid-engine Italian supercar has been mixed with various design elements, some of which Corvette-inspired. Those, however, a limited to the thin taillights, which sort of look like squinting Corvette taillights.

The side windows seem to be taken from the LaFerrari. The front, however, has nothing to do with Ferrari or with Corvette, as it resembles that of the Nezha S – a Chinese competitor to the Tesla Model S, scheduled for debut later in 2022. Apart from that, the F50 traits are quite obvious, especially at the back when we have the big rear wing, integrated into the rear clamshell.

On its own, the hypothetical C9 Corvette design is a successful mix of different designs. However, it has little to do with reality, as the design is very distinctively 1990s and very Italian (with a bit of Chinese at the front). An interesting exercise, nonetheless, just not one that would make sense in the real world.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
