Will the 5th gen be drive by wire?

Will the 5th gen throttle bodies be a drive by wire, similar to that of the Vette? Anyone know? I havent seen any mention of it.

I know I'll be wired when I drive it.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

What do mean when you talk about drive-by-wire?
If you mean steering, I don't know of any.
IF you mean throttle, sure, but I wouldn't call that drive-by-wire.

For clarification:

Drive By Wire = electronic throttle.
As opposed to the manual throttle, which is driven by a cable.
