Next Corvette To Offer Small Displacement Turbo V8?

Next Chevy Corvette to offer small-displacement turbo V8 — Autoblog

Quote:
Just how small, exactly? TDB reports that the next Corvette's European-style V8 could measure in at just over 3.0 liters, using an overhead-cam setup and dry sump oil system. With the aid of turbocharging, unnamed GM sources expect that this engine will deliver "in excess of 400 horsepower," or about 125 hp per liter. What's more, the smaller V8 could be of the extremely high-revving nature, with TDB citing that engine revs could handle up to 10,000 RPM.

I sure hope not. It's supposed to be overhead valve, pushrod, V8.

Would be an interesting change for chevy with the corvette. All we can really do is sit, wait, and find out.

I'm still hoping this doesn't come to pass.

How does one actually have hatred for a car?

I don't like, say, Mitsubishi's. Theyre garbage. But i dont HATE them.

I love my Mustang (even more if it wasnt so slow), but I'd take a Corvette any day.

I love ford and love mustangs more than any other car in the world. But gimmie a vette any day of the week and i will be one very happy man. Looks like they're trying to build one to compete with the stang from my stand point.
