Disappointed it leans so much on the track side....too harsh and too expensive for even a weekend car. These are going to be garage queens. That was not the case in Gen 1 of ZEDS.

And those brakes are going to be very expensive to get fixed/repaired when the time comes.
My thoughts exactly.

I think availability, up here GTA/Canada, is going to be near to impossible to get one.
I guess that's expected with, what will probably be, a very limited production car.
I think production is going to be more limited than the ZL1.

Good Luck to all you who want one.

Only GM has the last say with that.

Most likely it will be like the ZL1's, only a handful stay here in Canada. Of course if your not opposed to buying a used ZL1, the dealers have a number of "US Cars" available here in the GTA....selling for their original sticker price WTFE!

Apparently there is talk of special RPO (CUSTRAPEKT) on the Z/28. Anyone thinking of purchasing a Z/28 would be well advised to consider adding this to their order.
Isn't that sickening Matt? I've heard about the used ZL1's in the GTA and can't believe the price they're asking!

Davenport in Calgary has one on order, but...they had a ZL1 on order as well and never ended up getting the one they ordered. One came into a dealer that the deal fell through on and they managed to snag it.

GM BULLETIN:

2014 Camaro Z/28 the Most Track-capable Camaro Ever
Chevrolet last week, introduced the restyled 2014 Camaro line at the New York Auto Show, including the
return of the Z/28, the most iconic model in Camaro history.
The 2014 Camaro models feature a revised exterior design that integrates high-performance
aerodynamics for more efficient cooling and stability at high speeds. The new Camaro Z/28 also features a
full aerodynamics package that creates downforce at speed, which helps make it most track-capable
offering in Camaro’s history.
The first Camaro Z/28 was introduced in 1967, created to
compete in the Sports Car Club of America’s Trans-Am 2 class.
It featured a smaller, lighter, 302-cubic-inch V-8 for improved
weight balance, as well as quick-ratio steering and a heavyduty
suspension for track use. In keeping with its road-racing
focus, the 1967 Camaro Z/28 was not available with an
automatic transmission or air conditioning.
While the new Camaro Z/28 is not intended to compete in
a specific race series, it is solely focused on track capability. In initial testing, the Camaro Z/28 is three
seconds faster per lap than the Camaro ZL1. That extra speed comes from three areas:
�� Increased grip: The Z/28 is capable of 1.05 g in cornering acceleration, due to comprehensive chassis revisions
�� Increased stopping power: the Z/28 features Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes capable of 1.5 g in
deceleration, and consistent brake feel, lap after lap
�� Reduced curb weight: The naturally aspirated Z/28 weighs 300 pounds less than the supercharged
Camaro ZL1, with changes ranging from lightweight wheels to thinner rear-window glass.
The new 2014 Camaro line will arrive at Chevrolet dealers later in 2013. The Camaro Z/28 is expected to
be appearing at track events across the United States in spring 2014.


Hmmmm....do they come in two tone 77 Rally sport......green and black!

I really want one, but I don't see how it will be possible for me to justify buying one. Its not suitable as a daily driver, and I'm not going to spend 70k+ (I'm guessing) on a car I can only take out a few times a year. But I like everything about the car, and I applaud GM for growing a pair & deciding to build a car that is simply 110% badass, designed to do one thing & do it awesomely; rather than watering it down, slapping a badge on it, and calling it a day.

Absolutely spot on .

I'm in no position to afford one, but I'd LOVE to have one. I would want/make the "sacrifice" for A/C and I'd probably add a couple extra speakers to the radio so it has a stereo, but otherwise? It's a Z06 in Camaro skin, and can bring my wife and kid along for the ride .

I'm in love with it. I don't have the radio on when I drive very often . The Voices in my head are usually singing to me. I don't drive my SS everyday either so that's not a real issue.
