All C8s are “dry-sumped”. For the mid-engine car, the system was completely redesigned.

Almost eighteen months after Chevrolet pulled the cover off of the first “electrified” hybrid member of its 70-year-old sports/halo car family, Porsche has followed suit with the new 992.2 911 Carrera GTS. The GTS becomes the first member of the facelifted seventh-generation (992) 911. It kicks off the second half of 992 production with an all-new 3.6L single-turbo flat-6. For the first time in the 911’s history, dating back to 1964, that gas-burner has been supplemented by a secondary electric motor.

The rumormill has long held that the ZR1 will get the first turbocharged engine in Corvette history, and this seems to be the best proof yet. In the Z06, the naturally aspirated LT6 displaces 5.5 liters and makes a heady 670 horsepower. With two blowers attached—and we're assuming it's two since a single-turbo doesn't make all that much sense in a high-performance V-8—this thing could make serious numbers.

We'll know for certain soon. The new ZR1 is set to make its debut some time this summer.

A twin turbocharged V8 Corvette seems wildly irresponsible.

And a lot of fun.

The 1966 Mustang Mustero. Only 50 were produced. Making it one of the most elusive Mustangs around.

Ooof.  As much as I love Mustangs and Rancheros, the combination of the two, does not work IMO.
