Love to know what your blood pressure looks like at times Larry! Now where is that Ronald Earp fella that reckoned it will never happen...:thumbsup:"Apparently, Chevrolet has decided that America is finally ready."
Oh, puhleeeeeeeeeze...America has been "ready" for a mid-engine 'Vette - and has been expecting one - SINCE AT LEAST 1970. The reason I bought my Ford GT was because IT was the car the Corvette should have been a long time ago. I got tired of waiting...
...now, let's just hope G.M. doesn't screw the whole thing up by choosing to power it with some sort of N/A, T.T., or S/C 'two cubic inch' V6... o: 'Vettes are V8 cars. Period.
...and the folks at GM learned their lesson on that muy pronto, no? Or at least I'd hoped they did.First Vette was a six cylinder, or is that out of period!
Ya, that's what I've heard too. I don't recall if I've mentioned this, but, I'm #2 in line for a mid-engine 'Vette at a very high volume 'Vette dealer back East. Regardless, if the car turns out to be V6 powered...........???btw Larry TT too :lipsrsealed:
Those who fear the demise of GM’s immortal small-block can relax because V-8s will surely propel the eighth-gen car. Using a single cam in the block plus pushrods offers weight, bulk, and cost incentives too valuable to squander. And the direct-injection, modular-displacement (cylinder shutdown), and variable-cam-timing technologies implemented for the C7 give this engine another lease on life. While it’s premature to quote displacement, power, and aspiration details, we expect the C8 to soundly beat today’s Stingray Z51’s acceleration (zero to 60 in 3.9 seconds), its 181-mph top speed, and its fuel-economy bogies.
