Adding to the anticipated success of the upcoming 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, SS Sedan, and Corvette Stingray Convertible will now be the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z06. Though we don’t have information currently, what we can tell you is GM plans to reveal the high performance Corvette during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, next month. Though no one is quite sure what the car will be packing under the hood, what we do know is it’s the most track-capable Corvette ever, possibly making more power than the current ZR1 powered Corvette. Of course, we’ll have to wait to find out.
Released earlier this year, the Corvette Stingray coupe and convertible pack an LT1 6.2L small-block churning out an estimated 460 horsepower /465 lb-ft. The Corvette coupe is 99lbs lighter than the previous C6 generation model and features a stiffer suspension with Active Fuel Management, continuously variable valve timing and an advanced combustion system. The Corvette rockets from 0 to 60mph in under 4 seconds.
The Corvette has been selling like hotcakes across the nation in 2013, accounting for about 25 percent of all performance car sales in the U.S. Year-to-date it has outsold the closest competitor, the Porsche 911, for the first 11 months of 2013. With the addition of the 415hp, 4-door 2014 Chevrolet SS Sedan, and 505 hp, 5th generation 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, the Chevrolet Performance line-up is expected to dominate the field in 2014.
