Corvette Designers Inspired by Bedside Posters

Corvette Designers Inspired by Bedside Posters

Tom Peters, chief designer of the eighth generation of Corvette, said that his team tried to make a car, a photograph of which you would like to hang over the bed.

According to Tom Peters in an interview with Muscle Cars and Trucks, when developing the eighth-generation design of the Chevrolet Corvette, the task was not only to please the current buyers of the legendary supercar, but also to attract a new audience, and much younger one.

Based on this, the appearance of the car should have turned out to be truly spectacular – so much so that everyone would like to hang a photograph in their bedroom. Peters explained that 10-year-old boys, who decorate their rooms with car posters, are as good at design as adults and are able to appreciate the beauty of a supercar.

The designer said that before starting work on the new Corvette, he recalled how once, as a child, for the first time in his life, he saw a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray passing on the street. The car made such a lasting impression on the boy that since then he has dreamed more than anything about a poster with a photo of the Corvette. This is the feeling that should be evoked in children and the “eighth” Corvette. And in adults – an irresistible desire to acquire it, of course.

The new Chevrolet Corvette was presented in the United States on July 18 this year: for the first time in the 66-year history of the model, the supercar became a mid-engined one.
