16 month wait for the Z06? Some folks will need Zanax.

I think you missed the part where EVERYONE has agreed that this is an engine for a Z-model C8, not the base model. Listen to the C8 sound clips; it’s a 6.2L.

I think you got one thing right...it's NOT going to have the C7 engine. So, you've got that going for you, which is nice...

Agreed.

C6 years 1 2 3 LS2... then LS3 night and day across the power band. Had them both.

Year 1 2 of the C8 will be plane Jane LT2 then the fun begins.

I think the smaller LT2 replacement engine will debut in 2022 with the Z06 getting the bug boy. All vettes will be turbocharged at that point like.... mclaren Porsche ferrari bmw Benz etc.

Just took delivery of a 3k miles Z 3LZ vert...at this stage in my life I absolutely love the Z vert but I definitely miss the 997 TT turbo pop at 3K (given, mine had a 700WHP Turbo build). If the new car has a twin turbo I will at least take a look.
