Thumbs up Favorite reply I've seen so far is "EPIC"

EPIC says it all. You can tell that they are out to make a statement. Yes, I am afraid it would be a garage queen for me..... but it's a lot easier to walk out to the garage than drive to a dealer, crank it up, hear the supercharger whining asking for attention, being pulled to the rear to hear the exhaust backpopping, sit in the driver seat a bit, crank up the radio, turn off the radio, record the pipes for my stereo, wax it up, take it out for a mellow growly ride, listen to the cam loping as I creep through the crowd of lookers on Sat. nite, maybe even park it, sharing the marvel of what our designers and engineers have created because it will be rare; then as I go home ... rev it up, wind it out a few times listening to the backpressure pops as I let off the throttle, drive her home, remove the dust, etc, once again listen to the loping growl echoing in the garage, check out the side view mirrors, look at the guages monitoring the systems, make sure the radio is set to my favorite station, enjoy a toast at the end of the evening, gently roll up the windows, check it over, reshine any imperfections, and ever so softly put the car cover on, wish it a good nite, turn off the lite, and peek back to make sure she's ok.... then go to bed, knowing a legend is here providing both solitude and joy, excited that a new day begins at the crack of dawn and I can do it all again........... thanks GM. Thanks.

Flame suit on....

I didn't think it sounded all that different

I think it sound ok, but I would expect it to be louder on the track if it had the exhaust like the vette to open it up...

Just too many people around taking pictures....I am tempted to call

Don't ask dealers for information.
Generally they know less than we do.

The exhaust sounds like the 2010 SS should have from the factory. I say make the Z LOUD! Its not a car thats ment to be parked in the garage and taken out every once in a while. It is ment to be driven. And when I am out driving around, I want people to look, thats why I bought a good looking car in the first place, because I like it and I want people to see it, and hear it.

Yea I went to a dealership couple months back & he said they dropped the Z28 idea. I was like huh? I just saw pics of it on the internet testing. Hes like "really? You sure it wasn't 2012 SS?" I just laughed & walked away...

It's covered in camo. How do you know it doesn't look different than the SS?

It obviously has the same sheet metal as the LS, LT, and SS. Perhaps he was expecting something different.
