I don't buy because weight hasn't really been announced for the C7, but estimates are around C6-levels or ~3300 lbs. They're not going to cut 350 lbs. out of the a Z07 and especially not 310 out of a ZR1 variant.
And unless GM has a card up their sleeve, I have no idea where they are going to get a motor to meet emissions and make 650 hp NA.
But even if they did a 600 hp, 3100-3200 lbs. Z07 and a 700 hp, 3200-3300 lb. ZR1...that would be very cool.
