It’s something even the Corvette team has flirted with for so many years: a mid-engined Corvette. Dreaming aside, it seems more plausible than ever we will be graced with a true, world-beating supercar in the form of a mid-engined Corvette Zora. Or maybe even Corvette Manta Ray, as patent filing show.
Today, we have another look at what a mid-engined Corvette Zora could look like, courtesy of Corvette Blogger. The artist responsible has penned what the transformation from C7 Corvette, to mid-engined Corvette, could look like should the design take a truly evolutionary step in design.
It’s not our favorite design we’ve seen of a possible mid-engined Corvette, as we’d like to see a design that incorporates classic Corvette cues, but with a new approach. After all, if General Motors signs off on a program for a mid-engined Corvette, you’d better believe the team should be itching to crawl outside of the rear-wheel drive, front-engined box. Especially with those guys in Dearborn debuting their latest mid-engined machine.
Something like the sketch we spied in an interview with Ed Welburn, GM Vice President of Global design, seems more fitting.
What do you think? Should the design be something as evolutionary as this? Or, should it take a more radical turn? Talk to us down below.
