General Motors (GM, Fortune 500) brought back the Stingray name on an all-new Corvette sports car the automaker unveiled Sunday night in Detroit. The Stingray name was introduced in 1963 and last used in 1976.

"Stingray is one of the hallowed names in automotive history," Ed Welburn, vice president of global design for GM said in a statement. "We knew we couldn't use the Stingray name unless the new car truly lived up to the legacy."
