GM Could Beat the Viper with a Slightly More Powerful 2016 Corvette Stingray

While the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will likely prove to be the performance leader in the American supercar segment, adding a bit more power to the Corvette Stingray in the near future could allow the far less expensive Chevy sports car to knock off the mighty Dodge Viper in almost any performance venue.

This story is reported by Patrick Rall for TorqueNews.com, titled GM Could Beat the Viper with a Slightly More Powerful 2016 Corvette Stingray.

When the C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was introduced for the 2014 model year, it was instantly compared to the 2013 SRT Viper. Even though the Stingray packs almost 200 less horsepower and costs about half as much as the Viper, the lack of real competition for either the Corvette or the Viper in the American market led to many publications pitting these two US sports cars head to head. Surprisingly, the C7 Stingray held its own, often beating the SRT Viper in the areas of skid pad handling, slalom handling and braking while losing in the races that focused the most on power, such as 0-60 and quarter mile times.

While it is all but certain that the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will beat the Dodge Viper in every way when it arrives with 650 horsepower and 650lb-ft of torque, there is a chance that adding a bit more power to the “normal” Corvette could allow Stingray owners to outrun Viper owners in every venue.

Why Would GM Pack More Power into the Corvette Stingray?
The 2014 and 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is powered by a new LT1 V8 that packs 455 or 460 horsepower depending on whether or not the high performance exhaust system is chosen. This puts it well below the 640hp Viper and that huge differential in power was why the Stingray failed to adequately challenge the mighty Viper in quarter mile races and 0-60 times. The Stingray beat the Viper in the slalom, the skid pad and in braking distances so while adding a bit more power wont allow the C7 “base”... [Read More]

Z06 Production Changes

Oct 14, 2014 - 11:10 AM - by elegant
For those of us who have been waiting, yes impatiently, for the new Z06 to arrive, wishing that GM hurries up the process and starts production right away, the following is a very vivid, and very visual example of why GM properly takes months and months and months to field test, refine, improve, and ultimately upgrade brand-new models, in this case the beloved Z06.

Here is a before picture of the Z06 is LT4 intake system. This system was shown at the January 13th Z06 reveal at NAIAS.


Note that the air comes in through an intake system above the right front wheel then curves around, approximately 135 degrees, to face obliquely into the front of the motor. In order to allow for the motor even some minor flexing in its motor mounts as a result of torque changes, flexing differentially from the fender structure, there are many corrugations in that intake tube. However, as we all know air intake corrugations interfere with smooth efficient air flow. We now have, thanks to Halltech, a picture of the revised, production intake system (below). Note, that it flows directly into the front of the motor, almost force feed due to its straight shot, i.e, the faster the car goes, the greater air-ram effect. No more corrugations, no curves, in short a more efficient system -- though we do have what appears to be a Helmholtz sound attenuation reservoir (thank you "MarkRx") off to one side of that intake to reduce unwanted intake sounds. 2015 production Z06's will have this new intake system.


We also know of one other significant area in which the preproduction, stage 1, Z06 has undergone a significant change, i.e., whereas the initial GM communications referred to the spoiler being the same as that on a Z-51 StingRay, told it even had the same part number, we learned in April at the NCM BASH that the Z-51 spoiler did not provide enough rear downforce on the car. Hence, the production stage 1 version now has a three piece spoiler that looks a fair amount like that on the other two... [Read More]
