When Motor Trend published spy photographs of a test mule that looks to be a mid-engine Corvette, it opened the latest chapter in a saga that has been in the making for decades—literally.

2019 Corvette Z06 New Interior

Industry rumors of a mid-engine Corvette have swirled since the ’60s, fueled, at least originally, by the Vette’s godfather himself, Zora Arkus-Duntov. For as long as he was involved with the 2019 Corvette program, Duntov strove to make the Corvette worthy of competing with the best sports cars in the world. That’s why he pushed to get a V-8 engine in the car for 1955, why he so often butted heads with design chief Bill Mitchell over styling features that he felt were unnecessary—notably the 1963 split rear window—and why he wanted to improve the Vette’s handling by locating the engine’s mass behind the driver.

Duntov was a gifted engineer, but he was also a shrewd marketer. Unlike so many future automotive products that are developed in total secrecy, prototype and concept mid-motor Vettes popped up regularly, especially during the 1970s, keeping the topic top-of-mind with the public. Car magazine editors fed the rumor mill by frequently putting those cars, or drawings of imagined prototypes, on their covers. We’ve rounded up some of the highlight mid-engine Vette models here for a historical perspective on the current mule’s roots.

GM recently trademarked the name “Zora” for use on a future automobile. If the mid-engine Vette did finally see production, naming it for the engineer who so badly wanted this drivetrain layout for his sports car would be the perfect homage.
