Whatever price this sells for, it's a BENCHMARK...for the Gen-6 version. Built earlier in the lifecycle, the next one will be even more capable...at a more attractive price, potentially, because the development costs will be spread over more units and over a greater timespan...

So I'm stoked to see/hear/feel/drive/experience THIS one...the last of the BIG displacement muscle cars! Kudos to Chev!

Did you ever consider people might NOT want a vette? There are many of us. Every one of these will sell instantly.

When the ring time is released and your jaw hits the floor…REMEMBER the following unverified quote from a gm engineer at the first known ring test "This is the meanest thing we've ever built!"

…again it is not a vette!

I agree, they will sell all they build.

I bet its ring time will be impressive I still have hard time believing it will post better times than a Z07 or ZR1

That's not a Z/28. They've always been somewhat affordable. I'm a hardcore Camaro girl, but for that price-- I'll take a well-equipped new Stingray. And so will most other people. They won't sell hardly any of these cars... and I'm afraid this folly will kill the Z/28.

Oh, well. It's still a badass car.
When they build them.. they will be bought.

On a short track it already months ago beat the ZL1 by 3 seconds. Since then it's been constantly developed.

,,it was disclosed in the most recent interview of Al O where he said north of 56,5K...that does not equate 80K territory. Previous verbiage along the same lines brings the point down to a small sum beyond that.

I don't think it will be as high as some people think based on the prices for the ZL1 and 1LE. I'm thinking low $60s.

Wixom Performance Build Center to close in January/14. And all the Z/28 engines will be built by then...

http://www.autonews.com/article/2013...#axzz2f4y0qcki

The build rate is 3 per line per shift, on average. C6 Vette production in Bowling Green ended on March 1st, so LS7-only production will total approx. 10 months. The last tour I was a part of was 2 years ago. At that time, 6 lines plus the Customer Build line were active.



Has anyone been through Wixom, lately?

Or has Reuss tipped us to the fact that Wixom will continue beyond the "Corvette shift to Bowling Green"?
