Chevrolet Corvette C4 parked and waiting for the showdown
Synthwave outrun car
Synthwave car culture artworks and videos are usually seen as modern interpretations of noir films. The C4 Corvette works well with synthwave music and dark themes, as in the days of the first episodes of Miami Vice, in which the Fake Ferrari Daytona Spyder worked well as a Corvette modified to look like a Daytona. But that's another story...
The C4 Corvette was appreciated for its clean and aerodynamic style - an almost "aerospace" design with its long clamshell hood and pop-up headlights. In the 80s it was advertised as being technologically advanced with a distinct futuristic streak. The part that made it more modern than any other component was the electronic dashboard with a digital liquid crystal display instrument cluster. The 1980’s was a decade of great technological changes. It is possible to grasp all of this by looking at a well-known (at least among lovers of the genre) spot commercial from 1984 - the year the car was released.
The synthwave outrun genre is often linked to action, and is generally not so subtle. Badass and masculine heroes, or lethal women armed with guns and Japanese blades, populate the scene. Dark atmospheres, neon and smoke coming from no one knows where, help create the atmosphere.
