Payback is a mofo huh. Expect to hear the ITOLDYOUSOs from our resident Chevy people.

They did kinda tell us though.

It would be fine with me if the Z28 replaces the ZL1. That sure wouldnt hurt the value of my baby.
The Z28 looks good and I am sure it performs well.
But no way I would trade what I have for one.

Yep, you nailed it, if a Z/28 similar to this had come out in the first couple of years, I'd have one parked in my garage now.

GM media has already announced the line-up for 2014, and the ZL1 is still included. It wouldn't make sense to take it away, since it features all the creature comforts and mag-ride control, as opposed to the stripped-down track animal the Z/28 is.

might be a good time to trade up to a used SS or ZL1 with all the people jumping ship to the Z/28.....

The LS7 and better handling stats sound great... but I hate the new body styling.

I think it was Boss 302 vs. 1LE.

If the Z/28 is that much faster than the ZL1 is it, wait for it:

Z/28 vs. GTR?

Now THAT'S much better. Now we are talking. The spoiler and headlights are no good. The rest of the car I could easily live with, as the new wheels are flat out badass, the engine is a saucy meatball, the new suspension, weight reduction, and braking are all fantastic. GM......we are now rolling in the right direction. Excellent job on the Z28. It kills the SS in every way shape and form that was shown yesterday.

Z-28 vs Whatever Ford brings in 2014.5....Won't be a Boss or Shelby..could be a Mach-1 or something.

Pissed because I didn't hold out for a bare bones race car with an ugly ricer rear end? Not a bit.

Exactly. 10k more, minimum... Deal breaker for me.

No A/C (optional, will add ~80+lbs)
No sound deadening
No stereo
No fog lights
No HIDs
No carpet in trunk
Stiffer track oriented suspension


If I wanted something without modern creature comforts I would buy an old car and just upgrade the motor.
Yes yes yes! Its bad enough that I need to take my hand off my womans ***** to shift gears when she's all wound up and ready to go after a nice dinner, but take away my barry white pandora station, AC (IN FL or TX, no less), and it's noisy also? No thanks.

Another great point. Going from 24 to 19mpg would have really soured this car for me. Mine is a DD and I need all the mileage I can get, especially in town where the 3.91 rear and close ratio M6 helps tremendously.

have fun re-mortgageing some of your homes, even though it should be in the 45k slot, I have no idea on earth how it could be. GM isn't interested in selling 50,000 of these cars, as it does not appeal to the masses they were shooting for credibility.
