I can't believe it. A definite sale for me. I just got off the phone with my buddy at the dealership to order one as soon as humanly possible. I certainly hope it comes in Rally Yellow. This car is a dream car.

So the 2015 SS gets the LT1? Looks probable as a swan song edition.

Ya.........

The weight difference between a camaro and mustang was 200 lbs. The z/28 just made it 100 lbs and now shoved in a 500 hp LS7 in there with dry sump oiling system. The makes the boss 444 hp lag far behind not to mention the GT 5.0. Mustang owners should be worried.

I think the one thing that people seem to overlook is how much they will miss a decent sounding radio. With only one speaker in the entire car people that think they will enjoy driving this on the street just for bragging rights are going to quickly get tired of not having any good tunes to listen to. Then they will start trying to add their own stereo. Then the weight starts being piled back on. Then you may as well have gotten a ZL1 because that is the performance car for those that have to have comfort and performance.

Can someone say "Camaro SSX" for the street, and just enough comfort to live with listening to that 427 soundtrack singing through the factory performance exhaust.

Considering the ZL1 was already better than any mustang, this just blew them completely out of the water.

Not to mention, it doesn't look all feminine like the Mustangs do.

Toss a Z/28 badge on it and suddenly everyone loves it.

I'll say what I said before - I'm not a fan of the hood vent. I know why it's there now - but I still wish they executed it better. I've liked the front fascia treatment all along, the taillights look better with a professional pic and not what we saw on a SD broadcast (proper lighting and all that).

Throwback to 1969 - that's what they are aiming for and I will agree, they hit that mark. The car is honestly a race car you can drive on the street. Buy on saturday, race on sunday.

They've done good in the mechanics department. The car just needs a different hood and it would be perfect. I'm glad they brought back the Z/28 - I'm on the fence about the fact that the car still weighs in @ 3900lbs (the ZL1 is 4100 - 300 = 3900lbs).

Still a pig - but the LS7 will help with that a bit. Still. If GM plans to keep the Camaro Z/28 moniker alive through to the alpha platform, I think that I will be choosing that route. We'll have to see...

This is fact.

Would have been nice if they had at least left the stereo intact (two speakers + radio).

The original Z/28 (1969) had only two speakers and a radio.
