If you can't wait for the next-generation Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, Hennessey says they will have you covered. The Texas-based company has announced it will offer a spate of upgrades for the 2014 Corvette ranging from a range of bolt-on options all the way up to a 1,000-horsepower, twin-turbo system. Buyers can start with a cold air intake, cat-back exhaust or stainless steel long-tube headers, but Hennessey says it will also offer up three stages of forced induction mayhem should those bits and baubles not provide enough thrust.

Those choices start with a supercharger system good for up to 700 hp, though Hennessey will gladly ditch the blower in favor of two turbos. Doing so will spin the crank to the tune of 800 horsepower all the way up to a certifiably ludicrous 1,000 ponies. There's no word on how much these tricks will cost you – or when they will be available, as we're guessing they haven't gotten their hands on the car yet – but you can head over to the Hennessey site to drop them a line if you're curious.

      Hmmm... Lingenfelter tried the same thing a few years back and it was a disaster. Sounds good on paper, but the Lingenfelter was almost undriveable per Motor Trend and Car & Driver. The backend was too light for that much power and it was pretty much just an expensive burnout machine...

      Having seen first hand the vehicles that come out of that shop I have no doubt the stingray will be Amazing! I'm just holding out for the 2000 hp package, it shall be called the suicide package, or the Steve Irwin special. (you see what I did there?)

        Several Guinness World Records, and over 10,000 happy customers is a bad rep? Hmm. Any business owner in America is going to have disgruntled customers, please be realistic. Hennessey currently builds 60-80 cars a month, and any of you are more than welcome to stop by and we will be proud to show you exactly what Hennessey does. The HQ Is located directly off I10, and car guy to car guy, we all know good and well we like to road trip, stop by, and get a free hat.

      So they've promised a C7 with 1000hp... I can see that happening... they always make nice show vehicles. Actual vehicles for paying customers, however...

        If you Google Michael Peters or Mikespeed it is very obvious you don't actually Google, or chose to do any research to yield merit in your statements like you claim you do. Quite disappointing that people chose to have such a strong opinion about a false matter.

      Plain and simple, Hennessey is the biggest con man of the aftermarket auto industry. His shop will feed you any lie they can and take your money at will. Just look at how many law suits have been filed against him and his shop from actual customers. How many cars have been ruined or had parts stolen off of them for another build. The only thing I don't get is how he is able to keep this con alive.

        Could you show me proof of one single lawsuit since 2007 when my boss, Don Goldman bought, restructured, and sorted out the company? Nope, you can't. I gotta be honest, when you say 'their shop will lie' you've just called me a liar. Our shop takes the time to do things right, and for that reason we offer some pretty big warranties on our packages, but do take longer than most shops that will knock out some rush job in a day, we take a week and do it right. I'm kinda past arguing with you people who don't have anything more than heresay, and are choosing not to use basic critical thinking skills, but I won't just have you guys try to insult a company just because there were less than 10 lawsuits over a decade ago. It's really disappointing reading posts like yours. We don't steal parts, or anything like that, that is absolutely absurd, and it baffles me how I'm even having to type this reply right now, in such a tech savvy, educated society. The company I work for, and the team of over 40 that works here stays in business by building over 300 cars a year, and doing things like building twin-turbo Stingrays, since you asked. You can stop by and see exactly why we stay open any day, Monday through Friday, at exit 713 on I-10 near Houston.

          I don't get tired of the fellow intelligent people chiming in, about a company with over 10,000 happy customers, domestic and international, if that is what you're asking. :) Everyone has some bad story about them. We're humans. I love being a part of the Team over there, and they're really hammering out some incredible accomplishments, as shown here and with what was formerly the Venom GT Project, that is now just known as the World Record holding production Venom GT, with models on all hemispheres of the globe in customers hands being enjoyed. We also do a lot of rad Camaro/Vette/Viper/Raptor/CTS-V stuff, which all the intelligent people who aren't feeding off of a handful of stories that were straightened out over a decade ago, are fully aware of, and allow me to really enjoy my job.

          You know "hemisphere" just means half a sphere. All you need to do to have cars in all hemispheres is leave one here and ship one to Australia.

        @car guy 1701 according to wiki; "Anna Silk (born January 31, 1974) is a Canadian actress. Initially known for her work on the Nicoderm Canadian commercial as Deb, a flight attendant trying to quit smoking, she has since guest-starred in Being Erica and is currently starring in Lost Girl." Being such an odd comment, I had to look it up

      Where can we nominate posts to the HoF? This is a great one as it drug a Hennessey shill out into the open and has made for some great reading.
