If GM had released the Z28 first everyone would automatically compare it to the GT500 as Chevy’s ‘best Camaro effort’ and GM loses. Release the ZL1 first and quiet the critics. Now release the Z28 which you’ve been developing all along alongside ZL1 to compete with the Boss 302. Not saying they will release a 5th gen Z28, but if they do I can see why it wasn’t released before the ZL1.
