I would be willing to bet that GM makes an automatic version of the Z/28 just like they did the SS, and I doubt anyone will be taking the badges off it
His comment has nothing to do with automatics good or bad at the drags.
The Z/28 is going to be a raw drivers car...as it was from the start. It was born with only a manual and this new Z/28 is already said to be manual only. Most anyone buying a new Z/28 is looking for a track ready car. Yes some will 1/4 mile it, but that is not its purpose.
