"But it's stripped down!"
Just how stripped down is the 2014 Z/28? Let's break it down.
It has (or most likely will- if not confirmed), in no particular order...
-power steering (variable assist electric)
-power windows (express up/down)
-keyless entry w/panic alarm
-12V power outlet
-stability/traction control (if you're silly enough to keep them on in this car)
-radio with CD/MP3 player, AM/FM, XM, auto-volume, 6-page preset menu, 3-band EQ, 10-minute on-after-key-off feature, anti-theft, and one decent speaker
-steering wheel mounted controls
-configurable lock/unlock and horn/light settings
-2 trip odometers
-exterior temp gauge
-average mileage/speed displays
-delayed courtesy light
-air conditioning (if you want it)
-cabin air filter
-huge trunk (albeit with a comically small opening)
-glove box (lockable)
-door panel storage
-center arm rest/storage
-console front storage tray
-auto-dimming rear view mirror
-variable intermittent wipers
-OnStar with lock-out protection, turn-by-turn, theft tracking, and emergency response
-a full GM warranty
-and a partridge in a pear tree
There may or may not be a couple things I forgot.
Some of you sissies need to quit whining, this thing does everything but wash the dishes for you. ;)
Just my not-quite-humble opinion.
I think we all assumed that as fact.
I think the issue is this,
its a $60,000 super base camaro.. :/
I wish they would just releas the price all ready
The past week has made me realize how society has ruined the automobile. Few consider the parts that actually make the car perform as features. Fully loaded means navigation, heated and cooled seats, quadruple climate control, 24 way power memory seats, and now a vacuumÖ. basically bloated mobile homes on wheels. Every year the manufacturers must come out with more options to make people feel like they are getting a good perceived value and one step ahead of the Joneses.
Understandably people have a hard time hearing ďthe most expensive Camaro has no A/C no speakers no carpetĒ. These arenít the things people have been lead to believe are important. Just like the most expensive Camaro isnít the one with the most horsepower or the one that is fastest in the quarter mile. So nobody understands why it is so expensive because if it isnít horsepower or a seat massager what is it?
Maybe the Z/28 and other cars like it will start shifting the expectations and open up a new world for those willing to listen. This is a purpose built car. It is not meant for the masses. I am in a way shocked GM is building it but also very impressed at the same time.
For those crying for these creature comfort options, put the shoe on the other foot for a minute and realize why some donít want to lug those around the track lap after lap. Now maybe you will understand? Weight kills performance. Some people donít care about a radio when they are driving a car like this, they are purists in that regard.
Last I checked the super base camaro's didn't have a 7L v8 with dry sump, tri y headers, carbon ceramic brakes, recaro seats, 19" forged wheels wrapped in 60TW 305's, etc..
I dont think it will be 60k due to it being a bse model. Id bet this will compete with the Boss 302 market
In order to sell as many cars as possible, manufacturers avoid purpose built auto's. They serve the needs of a few, not many. Ala carte cars dissapeared decades ago. Accessories and packages are now bundled together into only a few choices/trim levels. Chevy has broke new ground, actually that's a misnomer. They are revisiting history, and bringing a stripper back. Purpose built, like the true COPO car, or factory racers.. as in the glory days. It's kind of cool to think about. It's a modern one off in my mind...like the ZL1,....oh yes you did!!! Chevy did it again...awesome Chevy!
Name a base car that comes with a hand-built, dry sump, 7.0 liter V8 with race engine components, factory CAI, tri y headers, Recaro seats standard, carbon ceramic brakes standard, dual mode exhaust standard, unique forged aluminum alloy wheels standard, street legal race slicks standard, DSSV dampers standard and the list goes on.
You can't see the forest through the trees. You complain a track monster won't warm your butt and tell you where you're going. You must complain that the Vette only has two seats. Why should such an expensive car only have two seats when a Honda Civic has 4 and costs way less.
This car is obviously not for you.
Yeah I'm bored....
HAHAHAHAHAHA ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Awesome!! :thumbsup::clap:
super base as in,
bare essentials.. no heated seats.. radio.. 1 speaker.. stripped amenities
