The ZO6 fits the C5 perfect, it comes with an LS-6 and it goes together... now it has a LS-7, and its a new version, so dont u think it should evolve into a ZO7??? just my thoughts.... :huh:

:buhbye:

The "Stingray" name was carried for 2 generations.... so... you never know. But I do think Z07 would be the better name.

I think i came up with the same kind of theory. I think bkuper proved it wrong. I guess that Z06 is just a performance option just like the Z51 package. or something like that.

Technically the Z06 name was used for two generations already. C2 and C5.
And to add, I'd like them to leave the Z06 name with the C5,
Just as the ZR1, while beginning as an option package for the C3, remained with the C4.

Pat suggested in an early concept rendering resurrecting the ZL1 name. Which although originally an engine option, has a REALLY cool sound to it.

i think they need to do something competely new...don't bring back an old option/performance code.....don't reuse Z06...give the damn thing a name...

If you did that they would have to make Corvette a brand and give the base corvette a name too.

isnt Z07 a C4 handling package?
Yes, the Z07 replaced the Z51 as the top handling option in 91 and remained until 95.

I think the difference between Z07 and Z51 was that the electronic shocks were mandatory with the Z07, which meant softer springs. (In 89 and 90, the Z51 with electronic shocks got softer springs than the "real" Z51s without that gimmicky option).

The current Z06 naming is fine, but I do have to say that the Z07 designation is taken by one of the aftermarket tuner companies, I think it's MTI. They use the Z07 naming for their performance package on the C5 Z06. But if you ask me personally, I'd rather have GM come up with a new performance designation...something original.

What about using "X" instead of "Z" , just like the old rocket planes used. (X1 or X15)

HE BE RIGHT, and i have one of those MTI built, installed and tuned Z07 427 C5R 625HP/TQ (at the cran) engines in my 98 Vert Z07, which is for sale for a measley $37,500 (1/2 the anticipated price of tne new Z and the top comes off and it makes more than 100 HP/TQ than the new Z)! If you know of anyone interested give me a shout!!! OH yes, MTI actually puts on Z07 Badges on their cars they build with this engine! Mine looks pretty COOL!:D
