Blue Devil Equals Sting Ray: New Corvette to Get Good Old Name

We've been stalking the "Blue Devil" Corvette since the prospective 200-mph 'Vette was first spotted last year tearing up the N burgring with LeMans champ Jan Magnussen at the wheel. Word followed that it was powered by a supercharged version of the Z06's LS7 V8 pushing 600hp and used carbon fiber panels to reduce weight. Now, lots of months and heaps of speculation later AutoWeek says the super 'Vette, which could arrive as early as 2007, has been internally designated "Sting Ray" to jog the memories of white-haired, budget-approving executives — an attempt to keep the halo product from being shelved amid cost cutting. Pretty sneaky, sis.
