What goes under the hood of the Vette generally finds its way to the
Camaro. So could a turbo motor find a home in the Mustang?
GM is setting its sights on European buyers with the next-generation
Chevy Corvette. GM's Mark Reuss has also already stated that the next
Corvette will be "completely different." We've heard so many rumors
about what could be in planned for the next Corvette, including a mid-
engined layout and a split rear window.
The Corvette has always been about large V8s, but according to The
Detroit Bureau, GM may also be working on a small turbocharged V8
engine that would appeal to European sports car buyers. If the reports
are true, GM has approved the use of a small V8 that is slightly
larger than 3 liters in displacement and will be of an overhead-cam
with a dry sump oil system. The small turbocharged V8 is expected to
put out over 400 horsepower and could have a red line near 10,000
