I particularly liked the part where Al is talking about the Z/28 in racing and says "My hope is that we'll get a series created where this car can compete..."

I had a feeling there was something in the works with the big 3; they aren't spending all this development money creating these kinds of cars just for HPDE weekend events.

If this is not what your stating then move along as there's nothing to see here.

That is the old corvette engine. The new corvette engine is the LT1 I believe. Referencing one of the best small block chevy engines ever made in the early 70's. I could be wrong but that is my understanding of the new power plant options for the corvette's.

The LS7 is still a Corvette engine.

Not arguing but... http://www.topspeed.com/cars/car-new...-ar136830.html and http://www.autoblog.com/2012/10/24/m...mall-block-v8/

I believe this is the Corvette engine of the future the woman in the video was referencing.

You can best believe the questions were planned out before the interview started.

I know about the LT1 but it doesn't make sense they would put it in the 5th gen Camaro.

Who knows?? I would have never thought we would be seeing what we are seeing in the Z/28.

I'm actually curious if we will see it in the '15 model year?

You realize that the odds of winning are the same as being mauled by a polar bear and a regular bear in the same day.






But I've got a ticket too.

Loved it except this part
"The 3rd and 4th generations strayed away from road racing"
Pretty sure the 1LE started in the 3rd gen and who remember's IROC???? International Race Of Champions. Yeah that was the racing event that used Camaro's from 75-90 and from 85-90 Camaro's were licensed to be sold with the IROC name Winners included 1989 Terry Labonte, 1988 Al Unser, Jr., 1987 Geoffrey Bodine, 1986 Al Unser, Jr. and in 1985 Harry Gant. If you were the best of the best you were invited to this. There were IROC Camaro's on the streets from 1985-1990. Maybe she needs to do some actual research on the history of a car

The raced IROC was nothing like the street car.

You are correct. And it is. Not by price, but by it's multi role, multi function, multi faceted capability. It crosses all boundaries of performance and comfort. The pinacle of Chevy engineering to be able to do everything, and the emphasis is on everything, so well. The Z/28 will be a one dimentional road course brawler. And it will fill that role exceedingly well, and it's price will reflect that.

Awesome interview. I don't know about you guys, but this made me very excited. I'm having second thoughts about my '14 1LE now and kind of want a Z28 instead! Man that thing is bad ass!!!
