My snail mail copy of Corvette Fever just hit the in-box, and they have published a timetable on our highly anticipated Corvette SS. Claiming infallibility from a GM insider, the author of the article states that this vehicle program was officially initiated on June 20, 2005.
The Anticipated Validation Testing completion date is October 15, 2007. The Start of Production Date is March 8, 2008, less than a year away!
Body modifications of a grander sort than have been seen in any "spy shots" will be required to accommodate P335/25R20 tires. The inside word is that the supercharged 6.2L LS9 engine will produce 650 horses and 650 foot-pounds of torque! The transmission will be the six-speed MTX. Electronic limited-slip differential and a next generation brake and engine intervention traction control system round out the package.
That ought to put thoughts of Vipers out of the minds of the last hold-outs!
