Is General Motors considering going retro-style for its next Corvette? Well probably not, but retro styling has worked wonders for the current crop of remade pony cars, with Chevy’s own Camaro being a prime example. Some might argue, though, that the modern ‘Vette has never really strayed from its core ethos of offering big performance for a relatively low price, so perhaps it’s not in real need of visiting the past for inspiration.

One Corvette enthusiast by the name of Christian Cyrulewski has taken matters into his own hands by using the third-generation Corvette as inspiration for a rebodied C6, the current version of the American sports car. This is the second version of the C3R, and it is a work in progress. Design elements like the Shark-inspired front fender peaks and steeply flowing rear-end from the early C3 series are present, as are hideaway head lights, which were a Corvette trademark until the latest C6.

While there are no firm plans to produce a car based on these renderings, Cyrulewski would love to see his C3R being created for real. It may not be the right moment for General Motors to make it happen, but retro styling isn’t going to change anytime soon.
