Increase in hp for 2015 ZL1?

With the highly rumored 600+ hp dodge Challenger hellcat coming in a 2015 model, will Chevrolet respond by increasing the hp on the 2015 ZL1?

I think after the stingray is launched and they offer a z06 or zr1 they will tweak the zl1 well over 600 hp

I've pretty much given up hope of a power increase for this generation. Chevy has signaled that they are going away from the hp war with the camaro, with more of a focus on handling. I am waiting to either do a late '14 order or any info on a '15. I don't want to miss the zl1 because I have a feeling that the 6th generation will not be quite as powerful as this current camaro.

Edit: Keep an eye on the next cts-v. That could be a clue to what happens for the next zl1.

the 1.9 in the ZL1 is almost equivalent to the 2.3 on the ZR1's believe it or not, I had a ZR1 and now a ZL1 so this is as unbiased as it gets.

ZR1 guys were having trouble hitting 750rwhp, YES THERE ARE exceptions, but thats the norm.

I see alot of 730rwhp ZL1s on pump gas no meth.

Just like the damn Rustang gt500, the dodge won't perform in the twisties. It probably won't lay down a good quarter either. So I don't care, I love my car. I'm some headers (in my den ready for install) some pullies, accessories, and a tune away from it being a moot point anyway.

Plus Fbodfather signed my car yesterday. So I'm happy.

Oh yes there will be another cts-v; Don't quote me of course, but IMO it is almost a certainty. I don't know whether it will get here in time to make a difference for the 5th gen, and even with the cts-v I am doubting whether it will go much more than 600 hp. The funniest thing with the lsa is that the caddy can dominate its competitors with its current power rating, so more power for it isn't really a priority. With the camaro and the corvette, its different because their rivals (although pricier) are showing up with more hp and/or quicker times.

I'm not sure how chevy is going to address this, but from what I've seen so far it looks like they will go the route towards handling and track prowess (somewhat similar to the late '70's vette and camaro....but not quite as anemic with the hp).
