Corvette Forum C7 vs Z28 Thread
 
I happened on this thread in the Corvette Forum. Lot's of Z28 supporters and plenty others who are more than a little afraid the Z28 will be faster than the new C7. So, what do you all think? Here's the thread:

Depends solely on a z51 package imo.

An honestly, I still hope the c7 loses.

Edit: does anybody know where they found this only 500 z/28's will be made thing. never saw that anywhere. Maybe I'm just blind. I've asked them twice in two different threads, and I received no response...:bs:

My prediction is that the Z/28 will log a slightly faster lap time than the C7 Z51. However, I think it will be because the Z/28 has stickier R comp tires, whereas the C7 Z51 will have MPSS tires. If you put R comps on the C7, it would probably be faster.

Unfortunately, because the 2 cars come from the factory with different class tires, magazine comparison will not really be apples to apples.

I was pretty sure I read where GM said they would make as many as they could sell. I certainly hope that's the case, or there will be something like an auction for only 500 of them.

It's just gossip. Nothing like that has been officially stated.

That what I think. I'm trying to find out where this bs began. :laugh: they don't like me very much. :yikes:

It's not an apples to apples comparison since the Z/28 is intended for the track whereas the Stingray is a street car. A true comparison would be the performance edition "Vette Z06-07 whatever they call it, if they make it. The base Stingray could cost less than the Z/28 too, which takes away some of the sting if it is indeed marginally faster.

the Z/28 will be faster. If the predictions are correct that this is the most expensive Camaro (outside the COPO) then it will cost more than a C7 with the Z51.

At that point it better be faster. This is the GM hotrod for MY 2014 and probably 2015. Gotta sell those highly profitable cars.

Not sure where the 500 came from, but as I understand, the LS7 engines are already made and the Wixom operation is now shut down, so the potential # of Z28's (2014 + 2015(?)) should be known.

Are they not still selling the LS7 crate engine?
