A couple months ago, we predicted that after seeing GM trademark the name “Zora”, [ Could a mid-engine Corvette called the “Zora” be in the works? ] we predicted that a high performance ZR1 was unlikely for the C7 generation, but that:
The C8 platform will be able to accommodate a mid-engine design and an ultra high-performance, mid-engined Corvette called the “Zora” will be offered.
This mid-engined Corvette could be powered in a similar fashion to Porsche’s 918 Spyder supercar, or the new hyper exotic Ferrari LaFerrari ; both of which use a hybrid-based powertrain.
If there’s any validity to Motor Trend’s “scoop”, our prediction might not be too far off base!!
