It should probably count for something that we never see warp streaks from the window of a shuttle, due to this being too difficult to achieve by affordable VFX or SFX techniques, until VOY comes along.

In TOS, that might not tell us anything much. But in TNG, explicitly warp-capable shuttles might still be assumed to be in impulse transit when the view from their portholes or windshields shows them to be at what impulse normally looks like.
Well, most backstage sources suggest the Type-7 shuttlecraft is equipped with a warp core to power those nacelles, so if it isn't warp capable it must be pretty damn fast.
