The Stingray has all the structural integrity required to support extension models with additional power, speed, and prowess. To take advantage of the added impetus, Chevrolet will fit the Z07 with Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes and larger Michelin tires.

Powertrain

The GM small-block V-8 has demonstrated convincing signs of immortality. Even though pushrods still open just two valves per cylinder, the addition of direct injection, variable cam timing, and new combustion chambers gives this stalwart one more lease on life in the General’s fast lane. Expect this tenet of GM performance to continue as the basis for the Z07.

Cadillac’s enthusiastic shift from supercharging to single- or twin turbos for its performance cars convinces us that Chevrolet will follow the same course for the Corvette. In light of GM’s ever-more-stringent fuel-economy obligations, we’re expecting the Z07 to produce 600 horsepower from significantly less than 6.2 liters of displacement. It may be no coincidence that Cadillac touted a 500-hp, 4.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 in its recently unveiled Elmiraj concept coupe. Air-to-liquid heat exchangers will handle cooling duties for the compressed intake air.

While the new Hydra-Matic eight-speed automatic will be fitted in Corvettes by the time the Z07 arrives, we don’t imagine it to be available in this guise. Expect the Z07 to be offered exclusively with the Tremec TR-6070 seven-speed manual transmission.
