We love rumors. Especially when they are about something that we wish would be true. In the case, the rumor is about the horsepower of the Blue Devil Corvette – itself just a rumor until a month or so ago when GM said it was gonna happen. Now the rumors are about details and this one comes from a tipster over at Jalopnik.com so we are just doing our civic duty to report it (and then drool over the prospects of what might be). The rumor comes from a guy that knows a guy who is a Master Mechanic for Chevrolet and recently visited a seminar for servicing the supercharged LS9 that will power the Blue Devil Corvette. According to him, the new engine will output 700+ horsepower.
My VERY RELIABLE source tells me the new Corvette is going to come with 700+ N/A HP!!!! I didnâ€™t believe him until he said he went to the class that shows them how to repair the engine. My source has been a Master Chevy mechanic his entire career. He also mentioned there will be 2 new supercharged CTS-V and the convertible (forget the name) Caddyâ€™s. The design of the supercharger actually puts the intercooler inside the intake manifold, cooled by a front end radiator.With recent news that the new Viper will come in around 600-650 hp, this is good news indeed. Er, I mean, we can only hope that this rumor will stick! Source: Jalopnik.com
