...loud and clear Pete! And I especially like hearing about the part of it hitting the streets . I talked to a source yesterday about my affinity and connection with the Z-28 and he replied why not then wait for the Z-28. Understanding it was an eventuallity gives no comfort to a performance enthusiast who can obtain something now for a predictable price rather than wait on uncertainty. I can't wait much longer. At my age grabbing a sure thing is better than waiting for something intangible that will or may happen in the near or distant future. My camp reside here, I am a Z-28 guy, and my spendible income for a Chevy Z-28 depends on if, when, and how much the Z-28 comes in at as a factory produced ride. So, in the end, the fact that I may be in on the ZL1 does not preclude me from jumping ship down the road when the time is right. I'm optomistic. You're commitment to this end will be doing the groundwork for such a future project.

No...

I suspect we'll see something "other-worldly" from a consortium of prominent players (not the least of whom will be PEDDERS)...built in limited numbers...with performance capabilities previously beyond expectations...for this segment...offered by ANYONE...

I wish I was going to SEMA...

How much HP is needed for the Z/XX to best the ZR1 stats?

To beat the ZR1? More than my bank account can support

*edit*
Same could probably be said if you want a Z28 to beat a ZL1 in a straight line

I believe that is what Pete was saying the Z/XX (not a factory Z28) was being built to do?

Pete, What is it going to take to make the Z/28 beat a 7:41 at the ring?

That's a pretty impressive time!

I'm thinking the power would have to be well above that to beat the Z06. Perhaps 600 hp and 3600 lbs?

The Corvette would still (probably) hold a handling advantage since its smaller & lighter so a Camaro would need to hold a decent advantage in power to weight to beat it around a track.
