I can't wait to own this new beast. How likely is this car able to break CTS-V's time on the ring? It looks like a much better handling car when attacking the corners than the 2009 CTS-V video. I am sure the straight line acceleration is a bit faster since it is supposed to be lighter than the CTS-V.

.....just counting down the days on the Z28.....I hope they make it a regular RPO and not a limited production run. I am glad I held off on purchasing because that model is the be all to end all. I gotta have one.

I agree...the Mustangs always have had a superior exhaust note....I still mopped 'em up with the stock LS1...but they had a sweeter factory sound.....

Plus much better at putting it to the ground than the competition (yes I am talking about you GT500 guys...no disrespect but it's no secret they are hard to get planted).
The ZR1 weighs 125 lbs more than a base coupe. That is with an aluminum frame (vs steel), gobs of carbon fibre (vs fibre glass), and balsa wood in the floor (vs ???). The chances that they could shave 50 lbs off the Camaro while supercharging it is slim to nil. The problem is that when you add a supercharger and intercooler, and beef up the suspension and brakes and whatever else they did, you add weight. More weight than you can hope to save unless you go with a gutted, stripped down street-legal race car.

I know that, except for the sunroof, I'd like a pretty well loaded one, but we're going to have to wait to see what happens. I'm sure, with a Track Pack and trim level upgrade, it'll easily get into the neighborhood you're thinking, but I'd be pretty happy with a RS2SS-type base level. I don't really think I'd be too interested in something like drilled rotors, Recaro seats, or some of those other add-ons we see in other cars.

I'm still struck by how loud the blower is when it takes off for another run down the track. I'm sure the wall amplified it, but I'm thinking we'll see a bump in boost, maybe to 10 or 11 psi. That'd probably be good for almost 600 HP if they can use a lower restriction dual mode exhaust - they're good for something like 6 HP on the earlier LS3 'Vettes, no?

It's a very exciting time for a Zed fan
Yar I would agree and can only hope the base has awesome suspension. Recaro ect I really dont want or need but I would want full drivetrain and suspension performance options, I can hope and pray however I know the 500GT with track package, SVT I think? puts that price at 58K+ before taxes over 60K out the door >.< ouch! Yar man the blower does sound sweet!

I believe GM will do the right thing...Carbon fiber drive shaft, carbon fiber hood, lighter weight mags and wheels, racing seats (hopefully) and how knows what other goodies are in stored. I am remaining very positive and praying for no electric windows-mirrors..etc etc. The bare essentials....

i dont want to come off rude or anything but all this talk of no power windows, no radio, no airbags, racing sparco seats, just "bare essentials" or "stripped" car from a production line is not going to happen. the gt500 has all luxury items plus more with nav. the z-28 needs to sell, it needs to be all the ss has plus more. its probably going to be the same or more than the gt500 as far as price (my opinion), its just being realistic thats all but i am excited for the z-28 to come out, i'll probably be trading the ss for it when it does.

I was writing precisely the same thing. Then I said why? The people who believe that they will get a crank window engine in a box will either buy what comes out or move on, either way it affects me not one damn bit.

For anyone from GM who is watching, I will take mine loaded thank you.
