Next Corvette gets 7-speed manual

Corvette Stingray Concept (Transformers 2009)

Hot off the press rumors: The next-generation  Chevrolet Corvette gets access to a 7-speed gearbox. Porsche has the tone and will soon put any 7-speed manual transmission?

When we first heard that the gearbox of the new Porsche 911 (991) up to 7 (forward) speed would have provided the necessary furrowed eyebrows. Meanwhile, unveiled the new 911 and it all seems slightly more likely (but first has to drive). And now it seems that the seventh generation (fittingly) a seven-speed manual transmission will get.


Incidentally, it is still a year or two before we Chevrolet Corvette C7 will be revealed, because he is only planning for model year 2014 (and thus introduced in 2013). Besides a seven-speed manual transmission will most likely also a 7-speed dual clutch transmission will be available ( developed by Saab?).

Under the hood, we find a V8 ( with turbos?)  Which is an evolution of the current engine? For the V8 back in time to get it will have direct injection and variable valve lift system one.

The engine also comes to lie just in front and not back, and there seems to be thought of a V6.  (Via: insideline.com )
