Z/28

Anyone see the 2013 427 convertible Corvette @ chevy.com? Are we looking at cues for a Z/28? 427 and carbon fiber ? hmmm...

This is really a send off to the C6 (or call it a very good marketing piece). That being said I dig it!

I think it gives hope to the idea of a fifth gen Z28. To me it means it's possible, if only for one model year. I'm sure it took a lot of work to get that drivetrain to perform well in a convertible with the same refinement of the coupe.

The key to an LS7 ZEE lies with the future of the Wixom Performance Build Center...

Post-C6 Vette, and its dry-sumped LS3/LS7/LS9 engines, what's in store for Wixom? Can enough volume be generated by continuing to build LS7s for a super-hot 3-pedal Gen-5 ZEE? It would take 5000/year to make a somewhat sensible Business Case...@ $48K a pop.

Who'd like one?
