Choppin' Competition #43 - Chevy Volt

16 posts in this topic

Welcome to Choppin' Competition #43!


Posted Image


Recently unveiled to great fanfare - and some doubt - Chevrolet's Volt is not merely another concept car. Its been made abundantly clear by everyone at General Motors that the most fanciful aspect of the automobile we saw at Detroit was the exterior sheetmetal. The guts of the Volt - its advanced E-Flex propulsion system - will be as real as can be. As opposed to coming-soon plug-in hybrids, GM considers the Volt a full electric car with range assist via a small gasoline engine. Already, GM has introduced fuel cell-powered versions around the world and has been making steps to bring a Volt to the public within a few short years.

Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to modify the Volt in any way you see fit. Whether you want to productionize the Volt concept or use the basic design for a future Chevrolet car, the choice is yours. Remember, please only use the Chevy Volt for your base image! Anything else you do is up to you. Let the creativity fly!

Some Picture Sources...
-Chevy Volt @Autodeadline*
-Chevy Volt @ GM Media


Size guidelines remain at 800x600, so please size your entry accordingly. Please do not submit your images as Bitmap (.bmp) files.

The winner will recieve a GM-related prize from C&G!

Deadline is Tuesday, July 31st @ 11:59PM your local time.

Good luck and have fun! :CG_all:

The changes are subtle and you might have to look for them but they are there.

What did you do besides change the wheels? You should post the original so we can more easily pick out the other changes.

Ask and you shall receive :P I was going for more of a production look while maintaining the edgy look of the vehicle so I didn't do much. I was actually going to put some toned down wheels on the vehicle but I don't even think GM could afford to do that without taking away some of the look...some of the guys on my Regal board are dreaming of a performance version so that was in my mind too. I don't see those windows going into production but they are one of the best parts of the concept. I may try a wagon because I love wagons. Here is a list of the changes

Added: Wheels, Door handles

Modified: Body color, Headlight color, Extended grill, Extended skirts, Extended front fascia, Gave rear more of a hatch look (I hated the short rear deck)

Deleted: Mirror turn signal, Small door handles, Vents/light on front fascia,

Great idea for the Chop contest!

Can't wait to see the designs!

:scratchchin: Hmm, maybe a two-door wagon a la the Kappa Nomad?

Pontiac GXP 7...;

( I can change it to a Chevy IF you really want me to ! )...but it is a Volt anyway, I figure it is a realistic possibility.

I DO! I forgot the deadline was the 31st! Could I just have today or tomorrow to enter it? It's finished but needs posted, that's all.

Deadline extended until Sunday, August 19th

No one has any more ideas? Convertible? Sports coupe? Wagon?

I like the look of the Volt, which is impressive considering it was designed to showcase technology, not styling. It's just far from inspiring any chops on my part.

My seond entry, the 2012 Chevrolet Volt SS concfept (sine the HHR was introducted so late, 2012 is probably a good guess.)
