Carl Renner

Carl Renner had worked as an animator for Walt Disney studio’s during the mid 1940s but preferred being a car designer. At GM, in the early 1950s, Carl Renner was given his own studio that only he and Harley Earl, GM’s V.P. and head of Design had access to. In this studio many of GM’s Motorama 1950s show-cars were developed.
