The Mako Shark – along with the Sting Ray racing car designed by Mitchell and Shinoda two years earlier – influenced the sleek styling of the 1963 Corvette, including the production car’s signature blistered fenders.

As a concept, however, the Mako Shark’s design was more dramatic and differed from the production Corvette with six taillights instead of four, a longer and more pointed nose that more closely emulated the look of a shark and the addition of a clear glass roof with a periscope-like rearview mirror.
