How will the GS, Z06 & ZR1 look different?

We know the C6's have differences for the exterior based on package, ZR1, Z06, GS & Base. How will the C7's differentiate themselves? I will say the fenders already looked very stretched...

More aggressive front fascia, more pronounced hood, lower stance, model specific spoiler ect....just my guess.

Sounds good. More wheel, tire and brakes too I'm sure.

Side vent changes? Scoops added to other vents?

It will definitely be a challenge with everything already going on visually on the base stingray.

That's my thought as well.

That's why I say hood front fascia ect. for noticeable change. The hood alone could change the look of the car...well I guess I could say that about the fascia too. Those 2 together will REALLY set it apart amongst the ranks.

Probably won't be a Grand Sport for a while.

Different fender cove vents, more aggressive/aerodynamic front fascias, wheel/brake caliper differences, spoilers, various aero treatments.

That was my point, can a wide-body be done without changing most of the body panels? It's quite wide already and look at the curves of the doors.

I don't see a wide-body kit. Especially if these Michelin's at 285 width are as good as they say they are.

I see adding ram air to the intake on the hood, bigger brakes, Carbon Ceramic maybe from the ZR1, or adding 6-piston brakes up front. More power with the LT4, I don't see forced induction happening, and hopefully a track-ready model gutted out, more carbon fiber body parts.

reading somewhere previously, the base model IS the wide body setup from what GM is saying. I'd expect some much wider rubber on the road (although the Michelin PSS base tires are supposed to be fantastic). More carbon fiber, perhaps a more aggressive spoiler/front splitter setup? The full on Z51 package with gen 3 MRC/full width spoiler/20" wheels is pretty balls to the wall right now, any further and you'd be a pure track car scenarios I'd think. Of course, they could lighten it up some more and throw another 200 bhp or so into the mix just to make it totally nuts......
