Speculation of an Electric Corvette Grows After GM Trademarks Corvette E-Ray


With all the speculation about a possible mid-engine Corvette finally becoming a reality, General Motors has thrown a curve at the rumor mill.

According to Chris Doan Automotive, GM recently filed two trademarks (numbers 86850510 and 86850500) that have fueled speculation the company is considering some type of an electrified version of the Corvette.

One of those trademarks is for “Corvette E-Ray,” which most people assume would be used as the name of an electric Corvette.

Today in Corvette History: GM Receives Registered Trademark for the Corvette


Did you know that the federal government’s patent and trademark office had an official twitter feed? Of course they do. But I just found out this afternoon thanks to a tweet from the USPTO which enlightened us on a little bit of Corvette history that occurred on this day in Year 1.

Last week, the Australian car magazine Wheels broke an exclusive report about the trouble that General Motors is having in securing a trademark in the land of Oz for its crossed-flags Corvette logo. Specifically, the Corvette logo trademark has been denied multiple times due to protections that Australian intellectual property laws grants to the Red Cross.

However, after reading the article and reaching out to the author who wrote the story, we believe the bigger news is that General Motors, in securing a trademark for its Corvette logo in Australia, is laying the foundation for the future importation of the rumored Mid-Engine Corvette codenamed Zora or ZoraZR1.

GM Files Patent for 7 Speed, Dual Clutch Transmission

We knew the C7 Corvette’s A6 automatic transmission was going to be phased out at some point and speculation has been rampant that a new, 8 speed transmission would replace it. After all, GM has been talking about the upcoming 8-speed for a while now. However, it now seems that the Vette’s next automatic might just be a clutch-less manual.

GM Granted Trademark Aprroval for the Legendary Corvette Engine RPO Code L88

After trademarking Turbo-Jet last fall, it appears that GM has dusted off another legendary term. GM Authority reported late last week that General Motors has recently been given approval to use a pair of different L88 trademarks. The two requests were filed in August and September 2012 respectively and final approval was given on January 15th of this year.

Corvette Logo

In 2008, Jim M. Sweeney sought to register the trademark CORVOLTTE for “electric vehicles, namely, automobiles”. General Motors opposed the registration saying that it would cause confusion with its mark CORVETTE. The three-judge board ruled on December 10, 2010 in favor of GM, but in its decision the court rebuked the automaker saying they failed to provide proof of fame of its mark and also failed to submit properly into evidence its registration for the CORVETTE mark for “automobiles”.
