To me it's looking really nice. Better than the renderings in any magazine. A mid-engine super car pretty much has one basic shape so differentiating it is hard. This looks like it has a lot of potential. Of course the available Powertrain combinations will have a lot to do with the success.

Looking forward to a reveal.

I do admit I fear they will put a "nice for a $50,000 car" interior in it and then charge $125,000 for the upper end.

Mr W and I got to tour the plant last month and when I asked about Zora it was complete crickets.
The road outside the plant is even named Zora drive but no one was going to confirm or deny. It was pretty funny.

Did see a whole bunch of ZR1's though.

It's one of those "if I had a nickel for every time someone asked me..." type questions

Yup, except we were inside the factory looking for it.

Just plan on going to Camaro Fest next time. I'm sure factory tours will be opened back up by then too.

See, you should have asked about the ginormous 'paint shop' they've added. Once you get them talking about that, slip in 'Zora' with some follow-up question.

My feelings as well. I really like the aggressively shaped side inlets.

Funny but that's exactly how it went down. They showed us the paint shop and we went into a room for final questions LOL. They just looked at each other and shrugged their shoulders.

Thanks, I've been screaming for Hugger Orange for years now. Finally have it in the name of Crush. Will be delivered to Becky's dealership tomorrow sometime so stay tuned for pics.

I still can't figure out why they don't capitalize on the Hugger name like Dodge has with Plum Crazy. Sebring Orange on the Vette is super nice too but it's metallic and Crush is not.
