Looks amazing. Chevy has really stepped it up a notch. But since I have recently purchased my SS looks like I will be hanging on to my SS till I see what they do with the 50th anniversary models

Think 911 Turbo vs GT3

Don't care for the front or rear changes, so much for the retro '69 look. Looks more like a Chally. 427 & bigger brakes = GOOD!

We'll see.

Incredible. When Chevy builds a car as hardcore as "I" am, thats nuts. I ordered my 95 Z28 with HAND CRANK WINDOWS. It does not even have the rear window defogger. It says a LOT about GM and the Camaro group that this car was green lighted. Wow.

Now....The ZL1 has the magnetic shocks, but the Z28 has the ceramic brake rotors $$$. The LS7 is more expensive than the LSA. Damn.....I was REALLY hoping this car would come in at $47,000. That would give us the same price structure as the Mustang with the Boss and 1LE priced close to each other, Boss Laguna Seca and Z28 close to each other, and GT500 and ZL1 close to each other. If you are looking at $63,000 for the Z28, that gets pretty tough to do. It certainly makes the 1LE a hell of a bargain.

BTW, the poster above has hit the nail on the head. 911 Turbo vs GT3.

What???
Sounds like sour grapes man.

But thinking about it the Z/28 wouldn't be practical for me(atleast not yet, lol). It's a car that goes to the track and straight into a garage. Of course you can change out tires/wheels buts personally I want A/C, I want the Speakers and the few other things we so called creatures feel comfortable.

I'll say this, there is a reason why GM hasn't debuted the 2014 ZL1, will be made into production. Imagine a Carbon Edition ZL1. Light weight spoiler, rockers, etc and an increase in HP? The LS7 comes with an intake, so the ZL1 may. GM has suprised me yet again. I'm looking forward to see the debuted of the ZL1.
I imagine the Recaros are not 6 or 8 way power seats? Anyone? The only real problem I see with this at this point is the rear lights wrapping around onto the side of the rear quarters. Totally unnecessary overkill...Those quarter panels aren't to hold tail lights... they are to fit big tires! My .02 (as I said in another thread, the taillight wrap is like a woman wearing too much makeup. (And Steve, they are awful big on that Boss too).... even though they don't wrap. They BOOM out.

Just when I had decided on a C7 Corvette, they go and unveil the Z/28 and now I don't know what to do!!

Got to admit, even the new TT v6 CTS is looking amazing! GM is really hitting on all 8 cylinders right now! Hopefully they can keep it up...
As much as I am reluctant to admit having soured in GM at one point, I have to agree. Good for GM. And good for the domestic auto industry I hope. Kudos!
