I would suspect that a Z/28 would have a version of the NA Motor.
fingers crossed that it does

Its no longer a special car. Its just another SS with some stickers and wheels. GM probably would sell more of them, but who cares. They would be the same people who would have bought the 2SS.

It needs to be better, faster and more expensive then the ZL1 1LE or its not the king of the hill.
The Z28 should stay top dog or forget it.

I want a 625 hp naturally aspirated, manual transmission, carbon ceramic brakes, track car. They really can take out all the computers, all the leather, the fancy heavy seats, the cameras and anything that ads weight. They can even have the power windows. The Z28 should be a striped down car with the biggest engine possible. If its anything else I will not buy it. I will just buy the Corvette.

If GM knows all that... why make the car?

You will buy the 2SS or the 4 banger and I will buy the GrandSport and GM sells the same amount of new cars. GM has to find a spot that wont take the sales from the 2SS or the Corvette. If they cannot get the Ford and Dodge buyers why bother. They tried and failed. Sure I bought a new Z28 but as I said I did it instead of a new Corvette.

I hate the new 4 banger. But it was a great move by GM. They are going to get the Honda buyers with that car. It will actually increase sales of GM products and not just move the GM buyer to a different car.

The Z28 just happened by chance and timing. Same as the 1996 LT4 Z51 (My other track car).
When better parts are left over so the cost is way down GM makes amazing stuff.

I don't know why so many people keep talking about the next Z28. Where were all these people in 2014 when they were for sale?
Like your thinking but need more power, and they can do it, look for more power hope to see 750 HP and the new TR-9007 DCT for the trans that will bring the cost up some, but what a car, a true track car.

Maybe its about time to go day 2 and add a 383 I have and headers/exhaust that should add to the fun factor?

That'd be worse than selling it IMO. Gotta keep it original (if it is).

Maybe it isn't time...I've had mine since March 1973. But I too have been toying with the idea of selling. The '15 is just so much fun to drive that I don't really drive the '69 much anymore. Thinking maybe it is time for some one else to enjoy her. Heck, for what I'd get for the '69 I could just about buy another '14/15 and use it solely as a track car. Boy the mind works in mysterious ways

Those are the top three user friendly areas on my list (for the 5th gen z28).

At 45K, 2014-2015 Z/28 is the best overall sports/track/daily driver/fun/menacing/low cost car on the market, period.

Unfortunately its a 75k car with a used car value 45k or less and without a radio,A/C and the DSSV does nothing for its daily driving routine, for most people anyway. It is a great track car for sure but its performance is close to a 2018 SS 1le which you can buy for under 45K . The Z28 is no way the best all around 45k camaro right now .

It's a 75K car with A/C and radio lol. Also unless you have DD a Z/28 you have no idea how comfortable it is to drive everyday with different tires and I'm talking from personal experience. For 45K I'll take a Z/28 over a 2017-18 1LE any day. Without what they learned from the 5th gen Camaro you don't have the 6th gen. Respect your elders cause they paved the way for you in all aspects.

The Z28 is a great choice at 45k i will give you that. At one point a few months back i had my mind made up i was getting a 15/Z28 or a 15/Z51 after driving both i walked away realizing i am not a corvette person and i didn't want to spend 8 hours over a weekend in a Z28 .A week later i decided to test drive a 18/ss 1le and bought it that day, it felt the way i wanted the corvette to feel .
