GM has always said there is no rule in place that the corvette has to have more HP than everything else. Like the LSA in the current ZL1 and the LS7 in the Z28 both have more power in them then the cars that had those engines first. So there's no reason that won't happen again.
Not so sure I agree. Chevy has always made sure the Corvette was top of the heap and had a faster version. Yes the ZL1 has more punch than the Z06 of the same year but the ZR1 was bigger still. Will we see a hopped up version of the ZL, I certainly hope so but not before they make sure there is a faster Corvette.

Other manufacturers have learned about cannibalizing sales with different products.

My guess is look at the Caddies to see what will happen. The current engines are closer to the CTS engines then the Corvette engines. I imagine thats probably going to be the same. They might pop up in the new Caddy line and follow in the Camaros a year or two later. But thats just my guess.

Ben Franklin said, believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear. The Vette will always be over top of the Camaro...as long as they both exist.

GM will do to the Camaro what Ford has done to the 2015 Mustang it'll be BUTT ugly and most likely lose sales to the point they cancel the car AGAIN IMHO.
Listening is an amazing skill. The Alpha platform was DESIGNED to fit a small block V8. The exterior dimensions of a car have nothing to do with what engine will fit in it. Any LS or LT engine will fit in the Alpha platform.

Well, the LSA is not the LS9, so your theory ends there.

As for the LS7 in the Z/28, they literally had no other option.

Until I see the LT4 sitting in a next gen ZL1 at the same power level as the Z06, I will continue to believe that Chevy will put upper tier Corvette engines in the Camaro unless no other realistic option exists.

Yeah that was my disappointment with the Z/28. Yeah it is an AMAZING car and it'll beat any mustang on a track, but stock vs stock, the GT500 will beat it in a straight line. Even the ZL1 will win.
I know its a track car but I watched an interview when the Z/28 was first announced and they said they wanted to build a car that will beat any car that ford can put on the street. With that said I was assuming it would be better in all categories. They need to keep the ZL1 and upgrade and make it a faster 1/4 mile. If ford can do it Chevy can.

Chevy did not have a powerplant that they could use to out run the GT500. Even the LS9 is 24 HP down on the Trinity 5.8.
