It seems to be more than a rumor at the Sema Show...
In any case, the parts which would be proposed (so, able to be fitted) are those ones:

- Z06 stabilizer bars, control arms and the Z06’s unique composite transverse leaf spring
- Z06 front and rear brakes (steel rotors) – featuring Brembo aluminum six-piston front calipers and four-piston rear calipers; and 14.6-inch-diameter front rotors and 14.4-inch rear rotors
- Z06 front and rear brakes (carbon ceramic rotors) – the brakes from the Z06’s available Z07 package include 15.5-inch carbon ceramic matrix front rotors and 15.3-inch carbon rear rotors
- Z06 front brake ducts
- Z06 600-watt electric radiator fan for superior cooling capability
- Z06 front grille, which offers 17-percent greater airflow than the grille on the Stingray with the Z51 package – and it includes inlets that match the Z06 front brake ducts
- Z06 rear transmission oil cooler – a larger cooler assembly that replaces the one used on the Stingray’s Z51 package for about 15-percent more cooling capacity
- Z06 front auxiliary transmission cooler that essentially doubles the overall cooling capacity
- Z06 rear quarter-panel vents that provide approximately 25-percent greater airflow than the Z51 vents at track speed
- Z06 carbon fiber torque tube that is about 13.2 pounds lighter than the Stingray’s torque tube
- Z06 drive shaft couplers that are designed to stand up to higher exhaust heat than the Stingray and Z51 couplers
- Z06 carbon fiber underbody braces which are 17-percent lighter than the Stingray’s aluminum braces, while offering comparable stiffness
- Z06 high-wing rear spoiler with wicker, based on the available carbon fiber aero package.

Well, we will not have the necessity to wait for a GM proposal to purchase those parts...The main problem will be their availability !!! :p
If they officially propose them to fit under the OEM warranty, that would be an excellent option.
