Love this Corvette

Spied: 2009 Corvette Stingray - Car News
650-hp boosted super-Vette is getting closer to reality.
BY JON YANCA, PHOTOGRAPHY BY CHRIS DOANE FOR BRENDA PRIDDY & COMPANY
October 2006




From afar this Vette would appear to be just another Z06. Now rub your eyes and take a closer look, because these are the first spy shots of the highly anticipated, but yet unnamed super Corvette. The large hood bulge you see is rumored to be concealing a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8, and packing upwards of 650 horsepower. This engine will likely use an integrated intake-manifold intercooler and should sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3.4 seconds. And, with the addition of more carbon fiber in the body and expanded use of polycarbonates, this super Vette could weigh less than the current Z06.

GMs Performance Center in Wixom, Michigan will likely produce the powerplant, but expect only about 15002000 copies annually. Initially called the Blue Devil, there has been much speculation in the past several months about the name for this super Z06. Recently we hear that GM has scrapped the Blue Devil name in favor of Corvette SS (we hope not), Z07, or even reviving the Stingray nameplate. Whatever the name may be, expect this beast to carry a sticker around the $100,000 mark, which is by far the cheapest way to get 650 hp in a production car.

ive been hearing about this car for a few years now. it was originally called 'blue devil' as the article stated, butalot of what i have read says its more than likely going to be the corvette SS. for awhile there was a debate about what the current 06-07 z06 was going to be called because they were thinking of calling it the z07, but then decided just to stick with the z06 name.

Yeah, blue devil was its code name and that name came from GM CEO's alma mater -- Duke. I've heard Z07 and SS, but I've also heard Stingray. I think this is the name that GM will be going with since they have been using that name on a few concepts for the last few years.
