It looks like a Lamborghini and a McLaren had a baby, and it looks sweet. I cant wait to see the real thing.

I'm pretty sure they are going to call it a Corvette. The only other possibility, this becomes a Cadillac.

Some are saying they'll make Corvette a Brand with the current one called Stingray and the new one called something else (I forgot but it's in the comments in the article).

As bad ass as this rear engine vette is, plus the low cost vs what other makes it competes with, I wonder if they will be finally be able to get away from the redneck holy grail reputation.

I'd call the mid engine "Zora" after the man who championed a mid engine Corvette.

That’s the name I heard. No idea if it’s accurate.

Unless it comes with the race legal 5.5L NA V8 I don’t want to hear any track comparisons to the GT.

Zora is the name after the original Vette engineer wanted a ME Vette as early as 1970.

A Vette sub-brand IMO can work if they can add a Vette based CUV and sedan with the ME and Stingray, works for Porsche...

My source said that they will be producing the the FE Vette at the same time as the ME Vette. I have no idea on pricing though. I would have to imagine that if the ME Vette wants to take on the big boys, it will at least cost 150. Carbon fiber isn't cheap. Unless they go GM and give you a base ME Vette for 90k with standard pushrod V8.

I'm surprised that GM hasn't yet expanded the Corvette into a sub-brand. 

 

The Corvette SUV will be next. And before anyone cries "No way!," who would have thought that we would ever see a Porsche SUV?

CUV models (luxury and sporty) would work so much better for Cadillac. We already know that potential Cadillac will buy them. And I believe Buick will probably become a CUV only brand at least in the USA, so that would be covered. Corvette will always be sold in Chevy dealerships which are also full of CUVs, so there really is no need to have a Corvette branded CUV.

No. A Ferrari intender won't give this a sniff.
