I'm pretty sure the "Maro" will run even better in warmer weather and Laguna Seca will be a great place to find out.
You are aware its already been noted that the Z/28 is faster on track than the new Stingray? I'll enjoy reading that Camaro Comparo as well, but the ultimate outcome is already known.

Can you point me to a test? I'm very curious and haven't run across a direct comparo between the C7 Z51 Vette and Z/28.

It was buried as a comment in one of the stories by a tester. I would think GM is not especially anxious to publicly pit the two against one another or give a lot of press to the outcome. The Z/28 guys would be fine with it, but the gold-chain geriatric crowd over at the Corvette Forum would lose what is left of their minds.



Hey, I'm almost there myself age-wise so I can jest freely!

I don't know if there is an actual comparison. But it was mentioned that the C7 was behind the Z/28 in performance.

^ just wait till the Z06 comes out, then it will tip back to the Corvette.

I can not wait to see what the Z/28 does on Laguna Seca. Maybe it bc I am more familiar with what is a fast lap there(or its my favorite track in forza lol)

All you need to know is right here. Look at the G numbers, then extrapolate from that how late the Z/28 brakes. It doesn't matter that the AWD cars spank the Z/28 in 0-100 numbers, not on the track. I can't emphasize enough how incredible this is. Team Z/28: we salute you for job WELL DONE!!!

I am not suprised by that at all. I just wish it could stay in the same zip code in a drag race.

camaro is now on the 911 marketing scheme so so quarter mile with good handling.

Ditto. I was glad to read that in the text and can't wait to read the results:

"The good news is that, this summer, the Z/28, the GT3, and the GT-R Nismo will all be at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for our 2014 Best Driver's Car competition."

Yeah, and that's where I stopped reading. I used to read Motor Trend all the time, but I just can't stand them these days.

Funny how you are a fan of a car that probably would get whipped by your current 1LE .

LOL @ those offended by his remarks of the SS. Now you know how it feels when someone says something about a V6, no matter how true it is. Just saying.

Great read, very shocked at how well it performed against those vehicles. Great job Camaro team!!

Compared to the Z/28, the SS does come up short. Saying that...it's better than anything in the same category!

I must admit that no way I would of ever predicted the Z/28 beating either of these, the 911 maybe, the GT-R no. ESPECIALLY on a damp/cold track. This sets the bar very high... I can't wait to see a dry Nurburgring time, I'm loving this car more and more

This...the Z06 will be the GM gold std track car(as it should be).
