= ~1:36.7 Z/28 time.

I don't disagree with you regarding the Z06 Z07 Corvette, specifically...But it's certainly faster than a standard Z06. Plus, there's a lot we still don't know about the car. That "three seconds faster" estimate was an initial number. It could be two...it could be four!

I remember having similar conversations when they first released the ZL1's Nurburgring time...nobody thought the "fat" car with a supercharger would be any good around a track.....surprise!!!

And here were are doing the same thing all over again. My point is not that it WILL beat a Z06 Z07...in fact, I never mentioned the Z07 package, as the Z06 is 70-some thousand dollars by itself. My purpose was strictly to open some people's minds to realize that, yes, this car can and will perform like they say it will.
