At ZL1 pricing I don't think there are enough LS7 motors to meet demand.

The twist is those are special just like the ZL1 and 1LE GYs. The 'same' tire not made to Chevy Camaro or Porsche specs won't be the same. When we pick tires for project cars, we always look at what tires are available for special cars.

The 11.5s would be perfect IMO

A little stretching by a good body knocker can fix that.

Yes, what's really interesting is the Porsche guys in the Z/28 threads jumping on the Z/28 bandwagon!!!

^...oh,...you know it! And,..., since you have become a literary ball of fire in da house waitin on the Z-28 with baited breath in much apparent anticipation,<based on your prolific post count..., albeit entertaining>...you should get the Zdiscount,...or at least be the first one at any rate...
And now about that C7 confusion that's interfering with your love for the Z-28,
....go for the Z, forget the Stingray....your eyes are getting heavy...you are feeling very sleepy....now repeat after me...I must get the Z, I must get the Z,..

Danny Popp, Bruce Raymond and Todd Rumpke have been testing our OPTIMA Camaros at Putnam during 10/10ths events. The performance of these cars and drivers has left an impression. Combine that with many more 5th Gens shocking people on road courses and you have the attention of the Porsche GT crowd.

That's good to hear. The good old (performance) days for GM are here again!

Oh, and Pete any updates (gossip) regarding the Z/28 you may have heard?

An amazing engineering accomplishment -- they have put everything back in Pandora's box.

Maybe the timeline will be similar or the same as the ZL1. The debut of the models and the build start are the same, I can't remember when they announced pricing for the ZL1. I believe the workbench opened for orders in October for a Spring release. Shouldn't be too hard to find from past posts. Maybe that's where our answer can be found...I don't think it's within two weeks like another member just posted today.
