    DETROIT — Corvette rumors are as rampant these days as tabloid stories about Nick and Jessica. But aficionados' antennae are picking up emanations from deep inside General Motors that Chevrolet is readying an ultra Vette for 2008 that should outgun the new Z06.

    According to the Web site, DigitalCorvettes.com, the so-called Corvette SS will be the ultimate Vette, although details at this stage are pretty slim. The rumor mill has a "charged" LS9 engine under the hood as a Corvette exclusive, not to be shared with Cadillac, Pontiac or any other GM brand. Although smaller in displacement than the massive 7.0-liter LS7, the blown LS9 allegedly will churn out more than 600 horsepower — considerably more muscle than the 500-hp Z06.

    One insider claims the new Super Vette is not the long-rumored "Blue Devil" car and, in fact, insists that no running prototypes exist yet.

    Stay tuned…

    What this means to you: Just like Pizza Hut's quest to find new places for cheese, GM has been striving to tack some more horsepower onto the Vette. Is 1,000 horsepower on the horizon? It's not quite as laughable as it used to be.

    LOL.

    It used to be that GM as of late decided that only the Vette would get the most powerful engines. Well this became a problem when competitors in other segments started upping to hp to Vette-like levels. GM's solution...give the Vette more power. :bowdown:
