I wasn't even talking about income ratio...more so roundy roundy fans probably are kinda clueless to a track car like that. Sebring would make much more sense.

I mean at this point I don't think anyone can deny it's actually happening now.

I figured it would happen, just wondering if you've come across any buzz about when GM is expected to confirm it's in process.

Nothing concrete. I'd guess we'll see it at Detroit next year.

The pictures show a C7 cabin with C7 taillights. There really is no reason to make it anything but a Corvette, at least in my opinion. Corvette has the brand recognition to support a super car.

Not really no. It's all speculation and Cadillac is just a good of a guess as any. I believe it to be a Corvette partly based on GMs trademarking the Zora name. They could pull the switcheroo on us and make it a Cadillac Zora. But it just makes more sense for that name to go to a Vette.

Good point about the tail lights...as the renders are nothing but speculation.

Zora could also be that track prepped C7 with the big wing seen testing too, who knows.

I kinda hope it's a Caddy. Still having trouble dealing with a mid-engine Vette.

That is possible as he was a racing enthusiast, but his passion was a mid engine Corvette.
