  • ME Zora to use advanced mixed-material approach to lighten car

    The new mid engined Zora will utilize GM's new advanced mixed-material approach to lighten up the chassis and reduce the overall weight of the car yet make it stronger and quieter internally. Here are a few great articles on this new technical approach. The Zerv thread leaked CAD shots showed numerous high pressure and high strength precision die-castings throughout the chassis. No doubt, this tech will also be used to enhance future Corvette models. The Autoblog article is exceptional with the official GM Press Release Statement.
