Some new photos have just leaked, which many seem to think show the key fobs for the upcoming C8. There was also a leaked document which supports that the mid engine vet will indeed be a 2020MY. The fob also has what appears to be a button for a power retractable roof, which could mean either a powered targa or hardtop.
Lets hope that this is just a working prototype, because I agree that it doesn't live up to the pedigree of the C8. I suppose if you consider what the key fob was for the ZR1, this isn't all that surprising.
I have a good feeling that this is the exact fob that we are going to see, and I agree that its disappointing. Wasn't expecting them to deliver something like we see from McLaren or Tesla, but this just isn't all that prestigious.
I don't think a key fob will detract interest in the C8, so long as Chevy delivers the rumored power outputs we've seen and at a fair price point. You can also look at it from the point of view that a less expensive key fob will be cheaper to replace should it become damaged or lost.
Since this was the key fob that we got in the C6, there is a good chance that these leaked pics are accurate. At least we know that the C8 will have a powered top of some kind, rather than the manual targa that was first reported.
