RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

The Germans, as usual regarding American cars, are just re-reporting the C&D story (I already posted here) about the eRay which would start with the [ZR1?] 800 HP TT DOHC V8 + ~200HP front electric motor for on demand pull. The algorithm controlling the front electric motor will be a doosey.

My SWAG at naming models:
Base Performance = 500 HP OHV V8 LT-derived = Zora
Performance level 2 = 600+ HP DOHC V8 = [Zora] Z06
Performance level 3 = 800 HP DOHC TT V8 = [Zora] ZR1
Performance level 4 = 1,000 HP DOHC TT V8 + ~200 HP elecric motor driving front wheels = eRay

Because the C7 and the C8 will be sold side by side for at least a year, there must be some unique naming which is why I don't think the "Sting Ray" name will be used on the C8 - at least initially and why I think that initially we might see the name 'Zora Z06' be used.

BTW, none of those renderings is correct - at least not in the front or the rear. We've already seen the fascias and the CAD drawings have given us enough peeks to know these renderings just are not close.

Corvette ownership is like owning your own fountain of youth ... and we get a sip from it each time the signal turns green.

LT, God I love your name nomenclature. At it makes a lot of sense, too. I sincerely hope that Chevy reads these lines also. You should/could be the strategic developer for Corvette. This makes more sense than anything I have ever read about this anywhere. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Of course they are not correct, they just ease the pain of waiting for the real deal. Which will be stunning. On the spypics (vids) I can (already) see beautiful lines, better than what the CAD drawings let me think.

In my view the recent accident with the ZR-1 was just (may have been) the beginning of the teasers that would eventually lead to the unveiling of the C8 as the mark of the new era. I am not saying I am right about this, just had this weird idea, that it may not be a coincidence that on the same place they are also showing some ME concepts - which may be considered - as a glorious path looking from the C8 "ME family tree"

The Aerovette, the Reynolds, the Indy and the CERV III are the true predecessors of the next-gen Corvette. (even the Cien for some extent)

The Cien design inspired more of the lines on the C7 than it will on the C8.
