No News may be Good News on a Z06 Variant of the Corvette Stingray
So, we have seen the 2014 Corvette Stingray in all of its glory and learned all about how freaking awesome it’s going to be. One thing that Chevy is still keeping under wraps is a higher-performance variant of the `Vette Stingray, sans the Z51 Performance Package. What we’re talking about is the Z06 variant.
We all know that GM isn’t going to roll out the most powerful standard Corvette ever without rolling out a Z06 model. The silence, however, is rather eerie. GM made not even a mention of this model in any of its press releases or at the official debut. We are optimistic that this silence means that big things are in store for the Z06 package.
There is still one previously rumored engine that was that was originally pegged as the new Corvette engine, and that is the 5.5-liter V-8 engine. Chances are that this, plus a supercharger, could be the eventual engine to grace the engine compartment of the Corvette Stingray Z06. This is, of course, just us thinking and hoping out loud.
We’ll keep a close eye on everything Corvette related to see if any new leaks come out regarding a potential Z06 model. For now we can only speculate…
