Why not just get a Z06?

I mean it has the LS7 in it plus a radio, lighter, and all the creature comforts...true it costs more but ...no intention to make an argument. Just saying.

some people like Camaro's better than Corvette's. As simple as that. Also, a Z06 starts at 76k MSRP. My guess on the Z/28 will be less than what the ZL1 costs because of the lack of all the creature comforts.

Yeah, I'm going to co-sign on that. From GM: "The Camaro Z/28 features the very best, race-proven technology on the market, including carbon brakes, spool-valve dampers, and the hand-built LS7 V8 engine. As such, the Z/28 will be positioned above the ZL1. Specific information on the Camaro Z/28 price and allocation process will be shared with you later this year."

We shall see, seems far fetched for the Z28 sticker to start higher then the ZL1 for me. But I could be wrong. The MSRP starts at $54,350 for the ZL1.

As awesome as the corvette is, Im a camaro guy. I like camaros more, therefore i would get the camaro, even if it is slower, heavier, and even if it was gonna cost more (although i reeeally doubt it.)

No back seats in the vette, not as family friendly. Vette Z06 is an all out super car also with tons of performance advantages.

The 2014 Z28 will start around way above 60k with all those special goodies. Mark my words...

The only part I don't like is they took the radio(or most if it) out. Why? How much could that make a difference in weight?
