    Will there be other Vs besides these three? I don't see an LT4.

    The CT4-V Blackwing, yeah. It probably still has the LF4 in the ATS-V. I think the CT5-V Blackwing sounded good enough.

    LF4 is a great engine. Sounds reasonably good with just down pipes through a factory exhaust. And for a couple grand youíre at 600whp.

    I just wish they kept the rear lines of the CT4 on the CT5. It is hard for me to stomach but hoping the overall look and rear end ends up surprising me. My V is almost paid off so might be keeping this one a while.

    Well wrap your head around they are forecasting that there will be no more gasoline powered new engines developed or released by any major OE automaker beyond 2022

    i dont know about that, there will always be a need for gas and diesel powered vehicles
    I dont think in our lifetime will you not be able to buy a brand new one

    Not saying new "variants" of existing platforms won't be available or released but after the next couple of years 100% it will be a "use what you got" investment strategy on combustion engines and the likes of developing any new platforms like the 4.2 TT or 5.5. Flat Plane Crank will not happen again. As much as I didn't like the thought of this, there will be some badass hybrid and full electric options in the not so distant future. Soon enough us and our combustion engines will be looked at like how many of us looked at 80's and 90's vehicles that were still using carbuerators

    Thereís a reason generators exist, to pick up the slack when electricity is not available. There are alternatives but certainly room for combustion given its maturity, also with electric we depend on a hardwired grid that isnít going too far. For vehicles with manuals those are really only readily available on combustion vehicles and not so much for electric and hybrid I guess too so Iím curious if that breed is part of your sad saga about the V8 cash for clunkers youre explaining here.

    Manuals...ha! Those are about as common as carburetor’s already. It’s not a sad saga, it’s actually fairly exciting. Take a look at where the development dollars are....virtually zero is being spent on combustion powertrain development moving forward. Even professional racing sanctions are going to be moving this way before you know it.

    Looking forward to hybrid performance power trains.

    Best of both worlds.

    The 131hp per liter on the black wing is impressive, that power density on a 6.2L would be 812hp.

    Yeah, but I you see a lot of hybrid powertrains that use the combustion engine to charge the batteries such as in the elr. I guess thatís a little different from a conventional hybrid where they drive on gasoline. Electrification makes a lot of sense but if the concern is still around infrastructure and charging then that wonít take fast. Heck in the northeast we have few and far between e85, yet everywhere else seems to be standard practice. For evís there are certain deployments where they make sense, and others that donít.

    The next variant of the C8 will have electric motors (yes motors, as in 2) driving the front wheels adding to the internal combustion soul. There is a lot to look forward to.
    As far as electric motor vehicles becoming the "new normal", we are many years away from that. Infrastructure costs, utility companies, Federal government, public utility commission regulations of rates, etc... If you think cost per gallon increase of gasoline during the 70's 7 80's was aggressive (OPEC, false narratives of supply issues, etc...) just wait. The utility increases and the regulation agencies will have the right to steal. Putting it lightly...

    Ford is installing a charging network 3x larger than the current Tesla network.

    The bonus with the Ford network is they will accept non Ford vehicles.

    Sounds like more of a co-branding / marketing opportunity.
    "That will include Electrify America's fast-growing network, which will give customers access to DC Fast chargers. Ford said that a 150-kilowatt DC Fast charger will be able to add about 47 miles of range to its BEVs in 10 minutes, and to recharge from 10 percent to 80 percent in 45 minutes.

    The automaker said it has also teamed up with Greenlots to find and bring other charging providers into its new network over time. Greenlots, a Royal Dutch Shell company, works to develop and map electric-vehicle charging stations."

    More chargers are a good thing.

    Yeah probably not a bad idea to cobrand a charger network.

    Sounds like Fordís plan is like the ďAndroidĒ and Teslaís plan is like ďIPhoneĒ

    For charging, the OEMís might be best served by the android plan.

    Yes electric vehicles are coming and technology is changing fast however it is not there yet and it will take some time. Combustion engine is not going anywhere in the next 50yrs or so. Fossil fuels thermal efficiency is 1000 times higher than that of a battery. On top of that the infrastructure is not even close to being there yet. Driving a tesla cross country would give me anxiety having to worry about being able to charge it. Shit in Metro Detroit area there is power outages during summer when everyone runs their ACs at home full blast, can you imagine thousands of cars being plugged in at once?
    As far as hybrids OEMs will slowly move away from them and as a matter of fact GM doesnt even do hybrids anymore. Development cost on hybrids is twice the cost because you have to certify the combustion engine and electrification part of it. Its very expensive and thats why hybrids cost a lot and are not money makers unless you are toyota and been selling it for for over 20yrs.

    not sure how true this is but a local gm dealer is dealing with a shit show . the uaw strike has put a hold on many crucial items and dealership said if it doesent end soon they will be lucky to be able to change oil in a week or two. let alone getting parts , left that place real quickly.

    i do like the look of this new ct6 but not sure how this new platform engine will be , going to let the test mules run their ground .

    feeling old , i used to welcome new tech to the auto industry . the LSX is what made my passion for hp. simple design , easy to work on and abundantly used . Same as the SBC days before me but not as excited to see an LT engine in resto mod cars . kind of like seeing an old TBI SBC swap thats 20 years dated .

    i wonder where the lsx platform will be in 10 years , 20 years.

    I ordered some supercharger sensors 6 weeks ago and still waiting. I believe the dealer is struggling to get warranty repairs and GM- Sourced products.

    20 years from now the LSx platform will still be here - but government regulations will determine to what extent IMHO

    what sensors do you need ? if they are stopping your work , let me know i have a bunch of lsa parts in my shop even though my V is gone.

    have a couple blowers, lids, even a long block with all the goodies.

    ive been depressed ever since watching my V leave and want/need another car i can jump in anytime that can make a bad day not so bad. So my 55 will be the one getting the swap , just hate seeing dated builds in classic cars.

    keep thinking a BB would be a decent idea , just not as bulletproof for a daily 1200+hp setup in my opinion.
