    The 2020 Corvette C8 Will Retain Stingray Name

    BY MICHAEL GAUTHIER | POSTED ONMARCH 8, 2019

    There have been countless rumors about the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette, but one of the most persistent has been speculation that will be called the Zora.


    This is understandable as it would seem to be a fitting tribute to Zora Arkus-Duntov who is known as the “Father of the Corvette.” Zora is also credited with thinking about a mid-engine Corvette all the way back in 1957.

    Check Out: Exclusive images of the 2020 Corvette C8’s interior

    The C8 is the realization of Zora’s dream and the spiritual successor to previous mid-engine prototypes like the Chevrolet CERV II which sold for $1.1 million in 2013. While that model was a one-off, the C8 will represent a major step in the evolution of the Corvette.

    It’s a Stingray after all

    While Zora’s influence is undeniable, so is the fact that the 2020 Corvette will be known as the Stingray. As you can see in our exclusive shots, barring some huge last minute change, buyers can expect to see the familiar Stingray name featured on a column between the front seats.

    While the news might seem like a slight to Zora, fans should remember the engineer played in an important role in the development of the C2 Sting Ray and C3 Stingray. He was also responsible for transforming the original Corvette into a proper sports car by pushing for the installation of a V8 engine and a manual transmission.

    Some fans will probably be saddened by news the C8 won’t be called the Zora, but it’s possible the company could evoke his in other ways. One possibility is a so-called Zora button.

    That’s not official at this point, but our exclusive interior pictures of the C8 reveal a mysterious “Z” button on the left side of the steering wheel. It presumably operates in a similar fashion to BMW’s M button.

    However, there’s no word on what the Z is supposed to stand for. Zora is one possibility, but the Corvette lineup also has plenty of other Z’s including the Z06, ZR1 and Z51 performance package.

    We should learn more about the C8 in the coming months, but there’s no doubt the model is shaping up to be one of the most highly anticipated Corvettes in history.

      So what do you think of the 2020 ME Corvette being also known as a Stingray?

      Might the earlier leaked product codes have given us a clue?

          Looks to be the vert model based on the rear window.

          Not it a lot of room behind the seats for storage but hopefully they will recline a little for comfortable adjustment.

            I love how the picture is cut right at the bottom of where the rear window starts. Very interested in seeing the rear window!!!!

              Also look at the area behind the side window. No Q window or anything. Straight B pillar. Air intake?

                Quite the blind spot.

                First ever glimpse of the convertible rear window.

                Seats look nice.

                Really really hate 2-tone interiors. This is 3-tone.

                Door and centre colour different to area at back. So not the final thing.

                  Going to be a massive mental/visual shift sitting inside a ME (something I have never done).

                    It is interesting that we see a little of the rear window and the "waterfall" if that's what they call it. I "assume" all the C8s will have a fixed rear window as it separates the interior from the engine compartment. I wonder if the convertible and the targa version will have the same "fixed" window?? I'm guessing like FVS that this is the convertible since the B pillar has no window ... very much like the Ferrari 458.

                      This photo makes me even more excited about what's coming!

                      As I stated in January, the Stingray name will apparently live on beyond the C7.

                        DOH ... Sorry of course the conf window will retract. I was wondering if the coupe and conv window would be similar in design looking from the inside

                          The miniature side windows behind the B pillar, if indeed you can see out of them at all — that they are truly windows, are bigger on the coupe than the convertible as fvs pointed out months ago, about 2X the size.

                            Good point about there not being a quarter window due to it being a vert. I would imagine that the coupe interior will seem much more open.

                              OTOH it's probably no worse (the blind spot I mean), than my '71 TA 455 HO was. I don't remember it being a particular problem.
