With the Generals financial situation, IMO the chances are slim to none. :cheers:

I'd give it about a 10% chance.
However,

the 2006 C6 Z06 comes out later this year...

Voted 0-19%, tried to put a deposit down with Rick about 9 months ago. Things started out promising and went down hill fast from there. From that, got the feeling it was going to be scrapped. my .02

Stevep - it's a rumored very high end Vette, probably costing $90 to $100K, and having 600-650 HP. Typically rumors have it using forced induction, usually a twin turbo.

Maybe that's the ticket. In principle, they ought to be able to do it cheaper, because they don't have to replace parts; they can just put the right parts in there to begin with.

I gotta figure it's more total expense to take a normal Z, replace the cluch, rip out old pistons and replace them with forged ones, in the process just throwing out parts you've aleady payed for, than it is just go build the dang thing that way to begin with.

GM doing it, probably not too likely. But I suppose it's possible for GM to team up with Lingenfelter, and have them build-up the engine. Just in case the Viper and Ford GT still have a slight edge...

I don't think GM will do it because it will drive up thier average mpg for the product line.

GM has much more on its plate to worry about currently than whether to build a super vette in very small numbers by the way. I don't think it will produce it any time soon but if it does I am sure it would serve up a serious can of whoop A$$.

I don't think they will, but I think they ought to do it. The extra it would cost for them to do it at the factory would be the (SUPPLIER) cost of: a supercharger, ceramic brakes, magnesium wheels, and some extra carbon fiber parts (like the hood). They could make a lot more $$$ on these, and only build them to order--no extra capital investment (as if the few parts would cost that much to tool up anyway). AND, it would cost less than sending a normal Z06 to Reeves or John. Plus, GM gets to see that extra cash, instead of the tuners. I think it makes sense from a business POV, besides from an enthusiast's wet dream. But that's just my view.

It's gonna happen.....prestige in the Horsepower Wars. This project would be a very small ant on an elephant's backside.

What better way to sell more regular C6's and the profit potential on this car will be high and the costs will be low.

You guys are a bunch of pessimists :lol:
