From a GM employee on the CTS team:

"There will be two CTS-V series cars: the L1 and the L2. The L1 will be about 500 horsepower. The L2 will have between 550 and 600 horsepower. They will have the Z06 Corvette engine."

Look for them in calendar year 2009.

Okay, I just re-read the email I got and it didn't say "Z06," it said "Z08." I'm not sure what this means... But I guess if it's bullshit then it doesn't matter.

"There will be two CTS-V series cars: the L1 and the L2. The L1 will be about 500 horsepower. The L2 will have between 550 and 600 horsepower. They will have the Z08 Corvette engine."
