The C8 Corvette Z06 - Naturally Aspirated V8 (9K RPM)

Recommended Posts

It will be a real contender but I am still surprised that Chevy would have developed different drivetrains that are so much different given development costs. Are they counting on selling more Z06s than the base C8.  

That said, would you consider the C8 a supercar? How about this proposed Z06?

With GM's goal of going full electric, I'm not surprised. It may be a way to defray some of the development problems by limited release and development on the chassis. That being said, I'd speculate the C8 Z06 will be considered a performance car, much like the Porsche GT3RS, no one calls it a supercar, but it's a scalpel on track and a real drivers car. The ZR1 and ZORA will end up being the contenders to be considered supercars with that amount of horsepower (800+ and 1000hp respectively) and technology. Time will tell, but it'll be interesting to see how the Corvette grows.
