Within the same Corvette Forum thread that posted leaked CAD engine bay renderings of the Corvette C7 and other images, there was a blurb from the same user that uploaded the renderings regarding the Chevrolet Camaro. If it is to be believed, the Camaro will be receiving a supercharged version of the fifth-generation small-block V8 engine — rumored to be called “LT4”. As a bonus, the engine will also be shared with a high(er) performance version of the upcoming C7 Corvette.
According the the user, who is highly reputable within the forum’s community, the engine will be an “upgrade of Camaro ZL1 with more hp.” Sounds pretty mighty, considering the ZL1 currently punches out 580 horsepower via a 6.2L supercharged LSA engine. But will the ZL1 name stick? Or is this paving the way for the likes of a Z28? As we like to say here on GMA, only time will tell.
