You know, these guys deserved to get fired. Freakin idiots....what did they gain from giving out this information? Such clowns... I hate people who have to open their big mouth regarding a new product!:mad If your lucky enough to know about it, then you should keep your mouth shut, and keep the info to yourself. Realize that your privliged to know this, and go on with your life. I'm sure those guys are now looking for a job....Good luck getting hired, when trying to explain why you were fired from your last job. "Yes, ummm, I gave out secret company info...." yeah, someone wants to hire an untrusting person...... :rolleyes: :nono:

A Camless engine also weighs less because it doesn't need a starter motor. It is self starting!

The computer sees what cylinder is ready to fire, sqirts in a little gas and fires the plug. SOOO cool.

Wow if it is really electronicly controlled it would mean you could radically change the intake and exaust timeing with the touch of a button. You could optimize for the track then on the way home optimize for normal use...

All of this sounds good but it is still rumor so dont go getting your panties up in a bunch like we all did for the 50th annv model :mad This does look more promissing thought :D I just hope that the price remains in the 50K range and doesnt jump in the 70K range trying to compete with the Viper :yesnod:

I hope that variable valve timing works better than the C5 steering column lock.

Sounds like a nice car, I'll probably find it ugly, and it will be WAY out of my price range.

I made the right choice in a C5

What's nice about infinitely variable valve timing is that touching a button is not necessary. The engine will already be optimized for track and street at the same time - it would simply be based on the throttle position and RPM's - the engine could react instantaneously to driver demands.

I'm taking this info with a grain of salt. If people want to be convincing in my eyes, they need to be able to run a spell check and have someone who knows English proof their work before publishing it. Interesting speculation, though.

This sounds like the best news yet...especially the part about the car looking like a C5 on steroids. Lighter and more powerful sure is great too. Hope its not BS.

Thanks! All I can say is that I hope there's some truth to the new engine. (without a huge price increase!)
