Default Would you be mad if the next z06 was supercharged?

If the z06 doesn't come naturally aspirated, would it effect your buying decision? Same motor, just blown vs a new big motor.

I like your actual question much better than the thread title. Not buying it should NOT equate with getting "mad" at GM, although that seems to be the unfortunate situation with several who post in CF.

I have a C6 Z06 and I also have a supercharged Mercedes as a DD. While I love the LS7(but not it's valves), I would have absolutely no problem with the next Z06(or ever it's called) being a LT1 with a blower on top. Actually, that's what I believe the next hi-po version of the C7 will be; a stock LT1 with a blower on top at around 580-600 HP.

There are people on here who'll be mad if the windshield is made of glass.

It's pretty well known that while 2014's hot Corvette is the Z51, next years top model will have the supercharged LT4 version of the LT1. The only real mystery is what will it be called? It will fill the Z06's spot in the lineup but traditionally a Z06 has been a light and efficient track focused model. The LT4 car will be a fantastic car -but- with all the good stuff of the Z51 plus supercharger, intercooler, big wheels, tires, and brakes it will be heavier than a base Stingray. Even all CF body panels won't get it down to the weight of a base car. So the name Z06 would not be appropriate. And ZR1 should be reserved for the rumored big buck supercar model being considered in a few years. So here's hoping that they can come up with a great new name for this fantastic but not light 2015 model...maybe L88? Maybe in a few years when sales get slow they could do a NA CF body low-content model like the new Camaro Z/28. THAT would be the one to call Z06.

My understanding from the Z06 section is that all Z06 motors will eventually blow.

yes. I think ZR1 should be a turbo for better power and efficiency.

I have always had NA rides. I bought a 2012 CTS V Supercharged and love it. Very easy to mod the first 100hp. I will buy the next Hi Po Stingray no matter what it is powered with.

Mad no, but it should be NA if possible. Some people seem to expect the Z06 to get only a modest increase in power to around 550, but there no way it's going to be that low. All of the Z's competitors are around 570 - 600 +. I'll bet my last dollar it's at least 600. Will GM do a NA motor with that much power? It should be relatively easy considering the displacement. There needs to be some differentiation between the Z06 and ZR1. Supercharging both will be too much of the same.

How can I be mad seeing those 750+whp bolt-on ZR1s? Imagine the potential of a supercharged LT4 LT5 LT9 or whatever?!
