Stingray! Motor Trend on the "Blue Devil" Corvette

Motor Trend's the latest buff book to chime in on Chevrolet's upcoming Viper-beater Corvette. (You'll recall that car was dubbed "Blue Devil" for an early prototype spied on the N rburgring, which happened to be blue.) According to the magazine, the new super 'Vette will indeed have a supercharged version of the 7.0-liter LS7 V8, but will be dubbed Stingray (one word), and according to their illustration, will get Super Sport badging. A liberal use of carbon fiber will reportedly bring weight down to 2900 lbs — 232 lbs less than the Z06. MT says we'll see the launch in mid-2007.
