    If it gets a dual clutch transmission I'll be more interested.

    If it is only offered with a dual clutch transmission and no stick shift and clutch pedal, I will not be the least bit interested.

    What's not to like about DCT?
    The dct BMW I drove was spectactular with perfectly timed matching revs on down shift.
    DCT is just race car tech finally getting to production cars.
    I'm on my 2nd vette now with a stick, paddle shifting a big V8 with dct around town can't be too bad.

    The question is which one is better 2014 Z06 or Z/28?
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    Wierd. This application seems to be for a generalized centrifugal blower, something that has been around for quite a while.

    Damn! That looks serious. I hope it's lighter than the stingray but I'd doubt it will be.

    trans info, no dual clutch.

    Z06 press release.

    Eight speeds, no waiting
    The supercharged LT4 is offered with a standard seven-speed manual transmission with Active Rev Match, or an all-new 8L90 eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission designed to enhance both performance and efficiency.

    "Unlike most ultra-performance cars, the Corvette Z06 offers customers the choice between two transmissions to suit their driving styles," said Juechter. "The seven-speed gives the driver the control of a true three-pedal manual transmission with perfect shifts enabled by Active Rev Matching. The new eight-speed automatic offers drivers the comfort and drivability of a true automatic transmission, as well as lightning-fast shifts and manual control for track driving."

    The seven-speed manual incorporates rev-matching technology for upshifts and downshifts. This driver-selectable feature can be easily engaged or disengaged via paddles on the steering wheel. The seven-speed is used with a new dual-mass flywheel and dual-disc clutch, which deliver greater shift quality and feel through lower inertia.

    The eight-speed automatic is tuned for world-class shift-response times, and smaller steps between gears keep the LT4 within the sweet spot of the rpm band, optimizing the output of the supercharged engine for exhilarating performance and greater efficiency.

    For performance driving, the transmission offers full manual control via steering wheel paddles, and unique algorithms to deliver shift performance that rivals the dual-clutch/semi-automatic transmissions found in many supercars – but with the smoothness and refinement that comes with a conventional automatic fitted with a torque converter.

    In fact, the 8L90's controller analyzes and executes commands 160 times per second, and wide-open-throttle upshifts are executed up to eight-hundredths of a second quicker than those of the dual-clutch transmission offered in the Porsche 911.

    "There's no trade-off in drivability with the new 8L90 eight-speed automatic transmission – it was designed to deliver performance on par with dual-clutch designs, but without sacrificing refinement," said Bill Goodrich, assistant chief engineer for eight-speed automatic transmissions. "It is also the highest-capacity automatic transmission ever offered in a Chevrolet car."

    Featuring four gearsets and five clutches, creative packaging enables the GM-developed eight speed automatic to fit the same space as the six-speed automatic used in the Corvette Stingray. Extensive use of aluminum and even magnesium make it more than eight pounds (4 kg) lighter than the six-speed, as well. Along with design features that reduce friction, the 8L90 is expected to contribute up to five-percent greater efficiency, when compared with a six-speed automatic.

    The eight-speed automatic will be built at GM's Toledo, Ohio, transmission facility.

    Having a traditional automatic seems like a bizarre move for this car. I'm sure they know what they are doing though and that it drives magnificently (?).

    It's a shame GM doesn't sell a "Stingray Cup" version of the non-Z06 car that comes race ready with FIA cage, fire system, safety gear, etc like Porsche does. Given the base price differences between a Stingray and a street-going GT3 I am sure they could offer it for a reasonable price and many race teams and people (including me) would be interested.
