All 500 2014 Z/28 Sold; GM to Quintuple Production for 2015
Each and every example of the 2014 Camaro Z/28 has been spoken for according to Camaro chief engineer Al Oppenheiser. While certain people were too busy whining about the $75,000 price tag, Chevrolet decided it will build 2,500 units of the 2015 model year Z/28 according to an AutoGuide report.
It's easy to understand why a high-priced stripped-out race car for the road sold out on such a short nice. A certain automotive publication tested the 2014 Camaro Z/28 and 2014 Nissan GT-R in Track Edition flavor head-to-head on a closed circuit.
While the rear-wheel drive American muscle car features a 7-liter naturally aspirated V8 that churns out "only" 505 horsepower and 481 lb-ft (652 Nm) of torque, the Z/28 managed to set a faster lap than the all-wheel drive Nissan GT-R Track Edition, which has a twin-turbo V6 under its bonnet with 545 horsepower and 463 lb-ft (627 Nm) of torque on tap.
Of course, the Nissan GT-R is the better daily driver between the two, but the track-focused Z/28 is just what the doctored ordered on those sunny Sundays when some people fancy a full-on pedal-to-the-metal B-road experience more than a drag race off the lights.
If you missed out on the '14MY, you'd better get your chequebook ready cause General Motors announced that the 2015 Camaro Z/28 will be available for order in the next four to six weeks.
