Me personally I wished GM made the Z/28 available with more options, leave it up to the consumer/dealership to order there Z/28 the way they want meaning (A/C, Premium Speakers, Mylink, etc). To just not offer it period is a bit drastic, but kudos to them bringing the hallowed name back. Just depends now if people want the "refreshed" model or the all new model coming on a different platform MY16. I don't think I'll be getting the MY14 Z/28 as its not practical, because I'll end up adding Speakers and whatever else I wish it came with, so i'll settle to keep what I have and enjoy it and wait until the 6th Gen.

I was hoping for GM to announce some sort of Safety tech package like blind-spot mirror sensors and or front-end collision sensor. I'm guessing that will have to wait for the 6th Gen.

It appears the ZL1 was ahead of its time as to why the MY14 will include the same front fascia. Now all models have a very distinctive look which I like.

Uh yes. We've had an ex GM engineer helping us design the Z28 for years and he's brought those very things up in our discussions. I mentioned nothing about the console.

Its 2013 not 1969!! No radio really? I think its just plain stupid they stripped down the car to save what a 100lbs? They should of started with a loaded SS platform and added the Z28 goodies to that.

Like I said if you want the badge buy one. The Z/28 is supposed to be a strip down track car you either get it or you don't..

You have the option of a SS, ZL1, 1LE..


It's a Race/Track Car!! I don't understand how some of you don't understand that..

It isn't track only, it is just track oriented. That is what a Z/28 is. It isn't meant for everyone and, ironically, that makes more people want it.

What else could a new model have been? The only other model they could have come out with would have been some kind of V6 performance package but the market for that is too small.

And what are the Z/28 goodies?

The car is what it's supposed to be. All the goodies are in it..

Worded better. That's what I was shooting for.. I'm sure you knew where I was going with it..

You have the ZL1 if you want the comfort and performance..

If you want the badge buy it and slap it on your car, it will be cheaper in the long run and just as fake if GM put in all the luxury crap..
This!

People need to understand the history of the Z/28. This nameplate lost it's essence 40 years ago and this Camaro Team has put the brand back where it belongs. This car could come with bare floors and they'd sell every one of them.

There are no speakers or wiring, except for one speaker required by law for the chimes. Plus they took out all the sound insulation. There's not even a trunk mat or tire inflator.

It's definitely a track car. I do wish they would come out with a version that is a street car that can be taken to the track as is, something more along the lines of my '73 Z/28.

The Z28 is exactly what many interested in perfromance wanted. And exactly like the Boss 302 was.

The LS7 is not to be a mass produced motor like the LS3 is and the LSA could be. it will always be the most exotic LS motor and limited in volume. The Z28 is for the few who know what it is and can afford it.

There are plenty of other Camaros for the rest of us.

They have that already. It's called a 1LE.

That's the 1LE. A 1SS 1LE for $37K (still an expensive car, I know) is a track ready car that can give you track thrills for cheap. The Z28 is for the serious.

Edit: Oops, Im too slow.

perhaps i'm the most ignorant Chevrolet member here, but I don't think GM purposely limited the production of 60s z28s like they are going to do now..
