Nice find... finally something new!

Hey skank... why would they call the ME "Stingray" if there's a new FE C8 coming?

Default Zora

Zora will likely be top of the line supercar version 1000 hp all wheel drive, electric at all four wheels and super charged . Will not use that name on the others

They won't abandon "ZR1"

I highly doubt Zora is not going to be an official nameplate. It would be a nice tribute to the man, but Zora in and of itself is a stupid sounding model name for a car and very few people will even know who that is. His name does not carry the same prominence as a Carrol Shelby type.

Hmmmmm...... Probably not going to be a Cadillac "Stingray" then huh? Guess that's gonna be knife in the back of the holdout hopefuls that this mid engine car is a Cadillac.

Touchť! Another nail in the coffin of the holdouts that seem to think Chevrolet is developing some top secret front engine C8 evolution that is even more secret than the drastic shift to Mid-Engine. As that makes since to keep that even more secret.

Thatís one heck of an interior for a base model. I assume that itís a 3LT and that this isnít an actual interior color scheme that theyíd have on the production model.

The vert model. Note the rear window.

Not or a lot of room behind the seats. But as long as ther “slightly recline. Hate to sit straight up.

It's another picture from the first set of interior leaks. Either they got more later or held onto this one for more traffic. The car is a development mule which is why it has light tan in some places and black with red stitch in others.

Intersting how the seats have a large harness opening. Wonder if the rear bulkhead will have some kind of harness attachment provisions. No room for a harness bar in a ME car in the traditional sense.

I know the ring test cars have aftermarket Sparco seats, but I can't recall if they use harnesses or not.

The Stingray name was there to see much earlier for those who were sure that the C7 is over with the end of the 2019 model, i.e., GM will not have both a 2020 FE Stingray and a 2020 ME Stingray.

Was ready to say, another controlled leak after Andy Pilgrim's a ~week ago (Andy is an insider- these folks aren't!)

However see it's dated January 2019! Too late for a scoop! (I see now it was the Interior pic that were from January 11, 2019)

You can forget the words as they admit they are repeating rumors BUT the pics look real!

We'll see!

PS: Funny I saw January 2019 BUT clicked again and it shows March 8, 2019!
Perhaps it is a controlled leak like the Government uses Marine Engineering Log and Aviation Week!

Folks with top secret clearance are told to look in those pubs to know what was leaked. BUT they are not to admit or deny the accuracy of the leak! How else can you let the enemy know you have something that will annihilate them if they do xyz!

If you saw "Romanoff and Juliet" with Peter Ustinov, his dialog on visits to both the US and Russian embassies fits: “Did you know the Russians know that you know etc." The reply is: "Of course we know the Russians know that we know, they know etc!"

All my newer M cars have had an M button. My M3 button allows me to set all the performance parameters no different than having memory seats. When I push the button mine moves everything into the most aggressive settings. Changes throttle mapping, stiffens the suspension, traction control steering tightness, and some other stuff.
