Like the tail lights better now that I've seen the whole rear but still not for me. Like my creature comforts too much.

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Introduced (in Refreshed Style)!

They will keep the ZL-1 as king. In the 60s is was king and today it will be considered the king of camaros.
The LSA is a maybe $10,000 engine if even that now. They've gone down in cost drastically and I wouldn't be surprised if the LS7 is more expensive. Even GT500 5.8 and ZR1 LS9 territory...

Also if this car destroys the ZL1 on a track (which apparently it does) the ZL1 will no longer be top dog....

Correction the LS7 Crate engine retails at around $17,000 the LSA retails at around $14,000. The LS9 retails at around $26,000 and the GT500 5.8 is around $31,000.

$#!% I hope not. The Z/28 has given me a feeling I haven't had since I had my GTO. I know the Z/28 will cost more, but hopefully not ZL1 money.

The stripped Z/28 will flat destroy a stock ZL1 if those numbers are anywhere close.
it is a track car not a street car the ZL1 will be heavy and clumsy in comparison horsepower isn't always everything.

500hp rwhp aftermarket cars spank stock ZL1s easily.

Probably not... The Z28 doesn't really have a competitor as its a stripped (use that term really loosely) track beast. Also this is the lady year of the 5th gen Mustang, we don't even know what ford has planned... The next few years are going to be crazy!! :beer:

I'm not sure if this has been posted yet, but Car and Driver says they spoke to GM who said the Z/28 will be the most expensive Camaro -

"The Z/28 will go on sale later this year, and Chevy plans to take it on a tour of track events starting this spring. Pricing has yet to be announced, but GM told us at the New York show that it will be the most expensive Camaro. "

Since the rear glass is thinner, I imagine that the top is also redesigned and perhaps made with lighter materials.

If you are wondering about price, go check the Z28 forum that you have never visited. This has been discussed extensively for a couple of years.

exactly what I was thinking.
The Cobra R was the same way.. stripped and still more expensive than anything else.

True. But, Ford does offer actual race cars in the Boss 302S and Boss 302R. Neither are street legal though. So this Z28 would be the equivalent of a street legal 302S I suppose.

I am confused about this car and where it is in the hierarchy of Camaros. My question is, if GM were to somehow put back in all the creature comforts, how would it compare to the ZL1?
