Default TCG - If GM named the mid engine vette Zora, would that be lame or great?

Spawned from this thread (Mid engine Corvette - looks like its a go) where for some reason, a few think Zora would actually be a good PRODUCTION name for the mid engine Chevy Corvette (or Cadillac whatever).

What say you?

That would be awful. Why not stay with the same engine naming convention they've used forever?

The CERVIII and Corvette Indy prototypes were badass cars of the day.

Personally, I don't mind Zora because the product will make or break the name. If they name it after ZAD then it better live up to his racing aspirations.

@98GrandPrixIraqVet solidifies his ineptitude by wanting the new GM super car to be named a fucking corvair over being branded as a cadillac

What does it matter if it's branded a Cadillac or a Chevy? It's the same car regardless.

I just don't get why. Like why is there even an opinion to have here. There is literally no benefit one way vs the other.

I'd be cool with it being a GM Zora. Not Chevy not Cadillac not Saturn, GM. Company flagship, not brand flagship. Otherwise I don't care as long as it kicks ass in looks and performance.

You're entitled to have an opinion. But you make it sound like it would be the worst thing in the world if it said Cadillac on it. You wont be able to afford it no matter what its called, and no on really gives a fuck what you think, OR what its called. People that are going to want it, are going to buy it no matter what.
