New Corvette will use cylinder deactivation. Will go from 6.2 V8 to 3.1 V4 for better fuel economy. No, no, no. I still remember the troubled with V8-6-4 concept in the '80s. Porsche has even a worst idea, shutting down the engine while coasting or at a stop (I think you can override this). I don't want this nonsense idea in my sports car.
It's still a pushrod engine. My 3.6 liter twin turbo engine produces 480 hp, 502 lb-ft at 1950 rpm
