Re: Will There Be A C7 Z06? Do We KNOW?
There will be no Z06 for 1st couple of years of C7 or C7 dies in 2016
There is never a Z model in first years of new gen Corvettes
Those saying no V6 turbo need to wake up as GM has released the new 3.6 L V6 duel turbo for the 2014 CTS which then will be used as a option to the base LS5 for C7.
You cannot have Corvette, Camaro, Caddie, etc that have high performance lower MPG and expect Corp fuel mileage have a bubble for them as they no longer have 3 other nameplates like Olds, Pontiac or Saturn to help gas the averages up
As long as the feds own about 30% or GM you will see GM going "greener" and there is no love for the Corvette nameplate in GM Corp at this time
2016 = 36 MPG BUT every year beyond that has to get to 2025 54 MPG and that is not with the weight and engine size of existing C6 or even 5.5L direct injection LS5
