It's a great time to be a car guy
Isn't that car the roadcourse king? and for a good number of years. Just reading up on the stats of that car and a 0-60 in 3.3 sec?! Holy shnikees Batman, That's fast!! Top speed of 196 mpg and 9000 rpm redline. I sure hope the Z can equate similar #'s. It would be impressive if it could keep up with the RS. Oh and I read that 85% of the buyers of that car track theirs, some pretty avid/diehard racers there.

Wow, I don't know if the Z/28 could best that full list. Those cars are purpose built. It will be interesting to see the numbers.

Z06 vette will be quicker and faster. don't lie to yourself. Do the math. look at horsepower per pound and gear ratios.

I think it'll be close... we'll see in due time. The promising factor in the new Z/28 is its entire suspension & braking components are made & engineered strictly for the track, add the Trofeos as a huge plus... therefore it'll turn some outrageous times in the hands of a well-qualified & experienced (read as professional) driver.

My opinion to the following cars compared to the Z/28, obviously we don't know what track it is "3 seconds faster" than the ZL1 at BUT. This is what I think.

ZL1 - Z/28 should be easily faster, if its slower than this anywhere it fails ( in my opinion ), other than a drag race maybe

GT-R - actually a faster car than it is given credit for, BUT being a track based car the Z/28 should be fairly faster

911 GT3 RS - hard to say, based on the times I know of and find on this car its actually not as fast as many think. I don't live on the track so I don't see daily runs of this car BUT to my own knowledge I'd say the Z/28 will actually be faster

458 - Similar to the GT3 RS, I don't think the 458 is as fast as it should be, on most tracks the Aventador is several seconds faster and the Aventador is a Lamborghini... Generally Lamborghini's like speed not corners. (Aventador is an exception I think). That is another discussion I think though, so I'd say the Z/28 should have that in the bag as well, especially being so track oriented. However Ferrari owners don't really track their cars daily.... they prefer to let it garage sit... sadly...

Z06/Z07 - This actually I think will be the hardest competition I'd say it'd be VERY hard for the Z/28 to out do the Z06/Z07 on a track. The Z06/Z06 and even ZR1 are not given a proper amount of credit for their track capabilities. The Z06 out of these cars weighs the least, has the best torque figures, Best weight distribution the GT3RS and 458 are back heavy and the GT-R and ZL1 are front heavy, I'd say out of the 5 this would be the hardest for the Z/28 to beat.
Just my opinion

I recently purchased new ZL-1 fenderliners to go with my ZL-1 front bumper conversion. The ZL-1 fenderliners are clearly marked Z/28 molded in with the part number and such

Just like I stated earlier in post #9... the ZL1 was supposed to be the Z/28 and if that was such then this upcoming Z/28 would likely be a ZL1. Nomenclature & semantics re-written by Chevy...

One thing I don't understand is how or why GM purists could call the ZL1 a ZL1? If they wanted to stay pure with the Z28, why take the purity away from the ZL1?

Idk I think they did an awesome job, but it's kind of head scratching...
