Hmmm… Is this our infamous mid engined Corvette? I sure hope so.
I thought the ‘Manta Ray ‘ name is linked to a lower priced V6 or base version of the Stingray ‘Vette.
Could be but isn’t a manta ray twice or triple the size of a stingray? From a discovery channel point of view it doesn’t add up
Same here, the estimated 2017 date is fast approaching. I would like the manta ray name over the Zora.
I think that Zora should be the name of the platform the mid-engined Corvette rides on with Manta Ray being the base model.
Hoffa! You’re back! Awesome! 😉
It’s good to be back! Thanks for the welcome.
Yes, gone before it’s built. AWD mid engine off road garbage. America does not have to compete in this kind of foreign car. We already have the best sports car in the world. It will only give the foreign car manufacturers more to cry about when we continue to beat the tires right off of what they have now.
Which one is the best sports car in the world? The Viper?
Surely you didn’t mean the Corvette. C&D’s 2014 long termer, AFTER it blew its engine at 6000 miles, needed a new starter, new rear axle seals, new side airbags, and a new climate control module, all before 30k miles!!
It’s just a Chevy, I know, but it is also GM’s Halo car, engineered and built after the monster bailout. What will it take for these fools to take quality seriously?
Using the name Zora is being respectful to a top automotive engineer that created many technical advances for GM…
