Prediction Game

So, I was thinking in order to help pass the days as we eagerly await for more news, specs, stats, and the eventual release of the ZL1, we could play a friendly guessing game. It consists of predicting one thing about the ZL1 that has not been officially rumored about or confirmed by GM at the time of the prediction.

So, just make up a prediction about the ZL1, no matter how conservative or wild. Let's see if anyone can nail it or get close to an unknown spec or feature that has yet to be revealed.

I'll go: The ZL1's powerplant will eventually be revealed as a hybrid LSA-LS9 engine. This hybrid will be named the LS8 and will output 600+ Hp.*


*just throwin this out there, I don't really believe it will happen.

Ok, go

THAT WOULD BE KILLER!!! Choke on that Ford!

How about it will come in at less than 3900 pounds?

Mustang-Seeking missiles, I'm assuming. Although they'd have to fire backwards.

Same, But I'm thinking more near the 605hp range 595tq. Yeah, I'm betting high

Of course, I would love to be still too low.

That would be awesome!

As nice as it would be, I have a hard time believing it'll be under 4000lbs. Realistically, anything under 4100lbs for the M6 is fine with me and about what I expect.

I predict $52K MSRP and crooked dealer mark-ups.
I predict 572 hp rating.
I predict they use the GM Heritage grille, or a new grille design.

You stole my deepest wish ( though one I don't expect to see ) so I will make a variant.

This LS8 you speak of will be an optional engine included only with the new V-Max Package, which includes several expensive upgrades such as the use of carbon fiber left out of ZL1 to keep the price competitive with the GT 500. Basically everything they wanted to put in but couldn't because of price.

They will call this option the ZL1 V.

It will be to Camaro as ZR1 is to Corvette. The ZL1 would correspond roughly to Z06.

...but it won't be announced officially until a week after the new version of the mustang is revealed. Ford stock will drop 12% on the news.

Hey, it's a guessing game right, might as well have fun with it.
