A Manta Ray is a large and slow sea creature, why would you name a fast, nimble sports car after this?

Hummm, you mean that the Sting Ray and the Stingray of the 1960s and 1970s were not trademarked?

ZORA in large capital letters is what was trademarked. Take that to the bank! The same ZORA capital letters that were seen on the steering wheel center by Zerv02.

Some of the comments suggest that the name "Zora" won't be used because corporations don't like to use the names of people. I guess that would come as a bit of a surprise to the following families:
Chevrolet
Ford
Dodge,
Chrysler
