      I think at the time all of us started our list we didn't know what GM was going to call the car? Was it going to be ZR-1 or Zora? I guess now it looks like two different cars?

        Since the LT7 will require a new Tremec transaxle variant I wonder if it may be mated to Tremec’s rumored hybrid DCT transaxle?

        It seems like the perfect match: big, slow spooling turbos for massive high end power and an electric motor for low end torque infill and throttle response. It would be lighter than a front eBooster axle to better preserve the Z06’s scalpel steering and transient response while making for a flatter, more predictable torque curve.

        Tremec hybrid transaxle patent:

        Not destined for E-ray, but maybe the ZR1?

          Good question.

          However, it's not just rumored vaporware anymore. It's real and on their web site. Unfortunately, they do not show any product details or info yet.

            If the Corvette team really did lose 50% of its engineers to EV development, it is hard to believe that they could still roll out these models in such rapid succession.

              Once the concept of the electrified front-assist is positively and demonstratively proven in the E-Ray, would GM then jump directly into the Zora?

              And would the Zora with the LT7, not incur a gas-guzzler tax because of the hybridization? This would further forward GMs EV and "Green" aspirations.

              Sounds like a win/win to me.
              Actually I would take the Z06 and add the ERay electric motors to make the ZR1. Adding twin turbos to the Z06 to get an extra 200 hp is far more complicated then adding 250 electric hp up front. You do not have to worry about the extra stress on the engine and transmission from the extra hp. It solves the low rpm torques deficit of the FPC engine AND there would be no gas guzzler tax. Given the AWD and 100% torque at zero rpm it would probably also be quicker 0-60 and perhaps 1/4 mile.

                Will ZORA and ZR1 be one and the same, or will they be two different models, with ZORA being uniquely the +1,000 HP King?

                Or will GM stop at the 850 HP ZR1 and have ZORA become the C9 performance model — leaving the Z06 as a model name being only an internal combustion model from beginning to end?

                  So Msm859, you're saying you'd like to see 3 hybrids:

                  - E-Ray as we know it
                  - ZR1 with 250ph motors paired with the LT6
                  - Zora with 250hp motors paired with LT7 with TTs

                  I like it!!!

                    I'm liking this plan also...either on works for me...

                      Yes. But actually I would give the ZR1 2 electric motors up front at least 100 hp each with a 10 second "turbo" boost that increases to 125+ hp each. Then I would have my "twin turbo" ZR1. Only downside is if they actually did come out with that - and it was a PHEV - I would probably have to buy it.

                          My guess is that we will see the ZR1 and Zora as predicted for the past few years. Because the development of the Z06 engine took quite a bit of time, they are probably far along the path to add turbos. The Zora sounds like a perfect ending to ICE motoring for the Vette (1000-1100hp!!!). These will have such a low production volume compared to the rest of their manufacturing that it shouldn't have much impact their corporate fuel economy and their environmental reputation. I'm hoping the C9 design will be very exotic and have high-higher-highest horsepower (and costs) like the previous generations.

                            Your ideas are tantalizing.

                            In the C7s and earlier there was one motor and maybe superchargers. Except C4 ZR1 over head cams and the old big block - small block thing in the 60s.

                            Now there are 2 completely different ICEs, electric and TT. And the 3 revealed variants are all different and distinct personalities.

                            hope the models to come will be distinct.
