Everything people have supposedly heard about a new Corvette is pure rumor-mill.

Yep. It's actually going to be a hybrid with a 22hp V twin Predator engine from Harbor Freight and electric motors off of Daytona shop fans.

Not rear, but mid engine.
Maybe 2019.

How are you going to stuff all your rocket stuff into that "rocket" car?

I'm thinking OHC, 4-valve, direct injection. If they're putting that in ordinary Impalas, albeit 3.6L V6's, why not put the same setups on V8's, right? So a 5.7L V8 ought to be able to provide a durable 500+ horsepower, without forced induction. Tuners could probably coax over 600HP, at the expense of longevity.

Given we've seen some blown stock motors in recent years, adding a supercharger to such a 4-V, direct injected motor will probably offer some obscene horsepower

Yeah, if I'd'a thought for a moment, I mighta said 6.2

That said, I don't know much about the recent Corvettes. So I took a wiki timeout to read about the LS9 and LSA. I'd love to know how those product definition decisions get made - how the process works. For example, why the smaller supercharger? Is that to maintain differentiation of the Corvette from the CTS-V? Or is there some other, more mundane reason such as cost?

Anyway, just wondering out loud how y'all make some of the product decisions up there in Michigan.
