Unsubstantiated rumors (the kind that are the most fun) have it that GM will introduce two new engines for the Corvette in 2008. Both will have a displacement of 6.2L, with a naturally-aspirated version producing 450 HP and a supercharged version making a robust 600 HP. Does this mean that the Blue Devil won't get a supercharged 7.0L LS7? The use of less displacement for more strength would follow the trend established by GM with the forced-induction versions of the Ecotec and Northstar. Now, what about the Vette in the spy pics? Some have claimed it's a targa-roof version of the Z06, but it lacks some of that model's scoops and extractors. More likely, it's a new mid-level variant that would sit between the base Vette and the Z06, or it could be a mid-cycle revision. [Hat tip: Digital Corvettes]
