New Corvette

Chevrolet Corvette Z06 will be highly customizable

Chevy offers opens of options for the new Corvette Stingray and Z06.

After decades of speculation, Chevrolet finally got around to building a mid-engine Corvette. The eighth-generation car, commonly called C8, is brutally quick and paces many (much more expensive) supercars on track. As in years past, however, Chevy's not done with the Corvette after just one version. The automaker typically releases several variations on the car, and the next one we'll see is the Z06, a high-performance, race-bred Corvette. The 2023 Corvette Stingray and Z06 won't be out for a while, but an individual with access to the General Motors Work Bench System shared a dealer options list with the users of Corvette Action Center. The options are numerous, to say the least. Chevy offers more than 20 interior color and material choices, seven wheel options, badges, stripes, and a variety of performance and convenience options.

Now a couple years into its eighth generation, the Corvette Stingray is a known quantity. What we don't know is how the Z06 drives, but we do at least have GM-confirmed specs to hold us over until the time comes. The car will come with a 5.5-liter LT6 V8 making 670 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. It's paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. The engine is a flat-plane crank V8 that makes an incredible sound and runs to an 8,400 rpm redline.

According to the export, the 2023 Corvette enters production on May 9, but dealers can start entering orders on March 24. At this point, it's unclear how abundant either version of the Corvette will be when it finally hits the streets. Supply chain issues have crippled even the most capable automakers' production capabilities, so if you're hoping to get ahold of a Stingray or Z06, it's a good idea to place an order as early as you are able to.

That's the enthusiast's dream setup, and it's one of few cars available in the U.S. with a manual gearbox. The body is stiffer and features more reinforcements from prior cars, and the steering system now features electric assistance instead of hydraulics. 18-inch wheels are standard and 19-inchers are available.

When it announced the car, Nissan made a point to talk about its retro-inspired styling and classic proportions. The coupe features a sweeping roofline, a distinct front fascia, and is unmistakeably a Z car, through and through. Inside, the car features a three anlog gauges for a classic look, 12.3-inch configurable digital gauge cluster and a 9-inch touchscreen display. The cabin looks upscale and tech-forward, with deep bucket seats.
