Why? Honestly. Pretty potent from the factory you say. Yet, the rumor is a turbo'd V6 as standard and an optional V8. So obviously, the V6 will not have any more power than the V8.You guys are crazy if you think a turbocharged V6 is stupid. It may not be a Corvette trademark, but could be pretty potent if set up right from the factory. Even more so when the aftermarket gets ahold of it.
