Lengthy (14 minutes) interview with Tadge Juechter, Corvette Executive Chief Engineer, but perhaps answers the very questions you have.


As this is mainly information, posted here in this section.

Great interview by Tadge as usual- such a nice personality and so knowledgeable. Always a pleasure to hear him discuss our cars. Thanks for posting.:cool:

We previously learned that all Z-51 components (upgraded to handle the HP/TQ), and MSRC are standard, and now know that NPP is also standard on the Z06.

I may have missed it on the earlier posts re the new 8 speed, but in this interview Tadge states it both lighter than the 6 speed and more efficient. Quite a feat!

Best line, "It's not crude, it's not a Viper"........ He knew he was in trouble when he said it but he couldn't help himself ;)

That's good news, also I heard him say the black out tail lights are correct. I assumed they had to be red in color but he said, of course, they light up in red.

GM has put up a lot of information about the Z06 here:

2015 Corvette Stingray Z06 Supercar | Chevrolet

I read the vast majority the posts on this forum, yet some of the information about the Z06 at the official link above was still news to me. Check it out!

That's great. Then I can wait till they come out and legally buy and install blacked out lights for my '14 CG Stingray :-D

Wow! With 6 lbs. saving and more efficient this is going to be a fanatic transmission. I really liked when he said "wait to you drive it"! Oh the wait is going to kill me!!! LOL

Thanks for posting rdslon01. Interesting that officially GM does not call the Z06/07 a Stingray, nor is there any Stingray on the body. In the press release they reference the 'base 2014 Stingray' and components from the 2014 Stingray.
