I imagine you'll end up right on that guess. It's too bad though, because I think a 6th gen ZL1 will need about 630 hp to effectively match the Hellcat's power-to-weight ratio.

If, if, GM grows the nuts to build this, I'd like to see three things happen; a) drop the Corvette name - a car like this would be a halo several steps above the C7 Z06...

That's a really good question. I would love to see Chevy hire some of the HSV folks once local manufacturing ends in Australia, and put them in charge of a CSV-type performance division.

For now at least. I'm confident that Chevy will answer the Hellcat Challenger with an LT4-powered ZL1, but who knows about a four-door? I'd love it if GM surprised us and put the LS9 in the SS sedan...

I don't hate the 2014 refresh, my only beef with it is the way they executed the RS package. The non-RS cars look good. If I hadn't bought mine in 2012, I'd have bought a 2014 SS sedan (though if I...

Camaro Ignition recall - optional upgrade

With 33+ pages so far regarding the recent Camaro recall, how many would, if given the option, pay for a GM push start upgrade (similar to what's found in the Corvette Stingray)?
