What will GMs third engine be for their Z28 and ZR1?

1) DOHC V8 based in current 6.2L OHV
2) 7.0L direct injected "LT7"
3) Tuned up "LT2" like pic related
4) Some hybrid/turbo faggotry
5) Something totally new

If the pattern holds with the 00's, they're already due an LS1>LS2/3 (350>400-420HP) type of refresh with the LT1 in addition to a third engine option like the LS7.

Black roof on Z28 and SS models reinforced performance and enhanced the sleek body lines.

GM WILL NEVER RECOVER BTFO

Adding DOHC wouldn't make the engine fit in a Corvette, so no way they're doing that. They're eventually gonna have a hybrid system for their Zora halo car, so I'm guessing this won't have it. My guess is it'll be a tuned/higher displacement LT4.

whatever it is, it will get BTFO by the 800+hp Shelby GT500 with its EcoBoosted Voodoo engine and the Ford GT's 700+hp 3.5l EcoBoost V6

A roof adds significant rigidity to a car. Ever wonder why convertibles are heavier and slower than their hardtop equivalents? It's all the bracing that weighs a shit ton and still can't make up for the loss.

Explain the LT5 C4 ZR1 then.

C7 Zr1 is going to be a direct injected, 5th gen LT-based, 6.2L DOHC V8.

GT500
Designed to compete with the Camaro ZL1, which the GT500 will handily beat if it has anywhere over 700hp. Z/28 Camaro will be a GT350 competitor. Corvette is in a different segment.

Ford GT
700hp
More like 630.

Ford actually quotes the GT to have 600+.

@PackManBrainlure
exactly. 700 hp is over 600.

@Firespawn
Why would Ford market it as 600+ then? Why not post 700+ then?

I know that, chassis rigidity, etc., but my point is that they word it like making it black is what enhances performance, like @BinaryMan
understood.
