Not so long ago, the US Patent Office received an application for registration of a new product name. The guys from the concern General Motors decided to patent the name Zora. Perhaps just such a name and get a new version of the American sports coupe.

Only the lazy does not know that at the moment, Chevrolet engineers are busy putting the final touches on a completely new generation of the Corvette sports coupe. The novelty will receive the internal factory index C8. Unfortunately, the specialists of the brand had some difficulties in the process of developing some components and components of the car, so the presentation of the latter is briefly delayed.

So far, there is no accurate data on the new version of the Corvette C8 coupe, which, among other things, will receive a mid-engine layout.

It is not even clear what name this novelty will receive. Our insider friends say that the word Zora can be used as a name. It is noteworthy that it was this product name that was recently registered by representatives of the American concern General Motors. It is noteworthy that in this application it does not say anything about the belonging of the name Zora to the updated Corvette model. I note that in the rest of the patent applications from the concern there is also not a single word about the sports coupe, although the model of this compartment is used in the patent images.

There is such a person, Zora Arkus-Duntov, he is also known as the one who first had the idea of ​​creating a Corvette sports coupe. As an engineer at General Motors, as well as a car racing enthusiast, he simply dreamed of ideas about such a car. So the imminent appearance of the Chevrolet Corvette C8 with the name Zora is most likely.
