Instead of stripping down to reduce weight a 5th Gen they should have waited for the Z/28 to be on a platform that will already be engineered for less weight(6th Gen) while maintaining some of the comforts people are used to. By putting a LS7 engine in GM is trying to sway some people to jump. I'm staying put. Kudos for GM bringing the hallowed name back but it was forced with a sub-par refresh. For those making it a DD good luck with that, I'm laughing at the first member who tears up his front lip on the highway.
I can afford. I think GM did exactly what they should have done with introducing this car at the tail end of the 5th gen platform production cycle. I love the car. I would never DD it. I don't DD my ZL1. These cars are toys for me. They come out when I have time and the weather is right. I could use the Z/28 the same exact way I use my ZL1 without any issues. I may just do that. There was a time when I had to DD my performance cars but that time has passed. I for one love this new Z/28.
