2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z06 Order Guide Leaked (08/20 Updated with Official Specs)

Even though the pricing for the 2015 Corvette Z06 is not available at this moment, a lot of interested buyers have put their names on their local Chevy dealership’s waiting list. As far as I know in major metro areas, some dealership’s list has hundreds of people’s name on it. People just simply want to buy the 650-hp  Z06 regardless what will the MSRP be (with so many people on the waiting list, it is impossible to buy the Z06 under MSRP at this moment), or what options they can opt for.


Today comes news for the Z06 enthusiasts: the official 2015 model year Corvette order guide leaked out today, and it includes the Z06 models...

Will The C8 Chevrolet Corvette Be Mid-Engined?

Today there was a rumor that surfaced online that the next generation Corvette may have a mid-engine layout, or will have a mid-engined variant.

First let’s make it clear that Chevrolet does produce a mid-engined Corvette. However, here “a mid-engined Corvette” means Chevy actually only made one unit of such a Corvette, which is the Corvette Daytona Prototype, which Chevrolet created specifically for the 2012 Daytona race. Below are images of this Corvette.

Corvette Daytona Prototype is not a production car, and Chevrolet has no plan to make it a production car, plain and simple.

The fact is, beginning 3 generations earlier – starting from C4, before every new generat...

Redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Will Come with 4-Cylinder Turbo Engine

2015 will be the last model year for the current generation of Camaro. For the next generation, which starts at 2016, the Camaro will be build on the GM Alpha platform which the current Cadillac CTS is also using.

By using the new platform, it is expected that the 2016 Camaro will lose several hundred pounds of weight when compared to the current generation. For your reference, the 2015 Camaro with V6 engine has a curb weight of 3700lb+, which makes it almost as heavy as some mid-size RWD luxury sedans.

But the biggest news is that the 2016 Camaro will offer a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine...

A New Round of Horsepower Competition

Eight years earlier, cars sold under the $35k mark seldom get a 300hp+ engine (with exceptions like the 2005
Mustang GT), not to mention whether it was possible to get a 300hp+ luxury car at that time. Even though the
Mustang GT gets a 300hp V8 engine which is considered “high output” at that time, it sacrifices refinement
and interior material qualities and lots of other features.

But in the end of 2005, after Lexus released the 2GR-FSE engine, which was used in the 2006 IS350, the
situation is permanently changed. Equipped with the dual-injection-system 2GR-FSE engine, The IS350 has
306hp and carries a MSRP of $35,440 and its invoice price is $31,186 (for many peopl...
