Lyle over at GM-Volt.com has just posted an updated hi resolution version of the Chevy Volt wind tunnel video that came out of last week's tour of the GM tech center. He's also listed some comments from Volt team's lead designer, Bob Boniface on what has changed and what stays the same from the striking design of the concept vehicle.
We here at PetroZero love to pull out our photoshop tools and set them to work on uncovering the mystery that is Chevy Volt. In that spirit, we present our rendition of the final design profile...
The top image is an unretouched shot of the concept vehicle. The middle image is our artist rendering of what we believe is to be the final production vehicle. The lower image shows the rendered shape with an overlay outline of the original volt concept shape (in red outline) layered over the top for comparison.
