I think Orion is going to get some company in the garage... not necessarily a fan of the styling, but everything else is SPOT ON.

I think I need more than 1 speaker. Even if I did use the car for "Track days", I would drive it there. An upgraded sound system would be a must. I don't want to have to add one. I like factory options!!

The Z28 returns to it's rightful place!

The leaked SS pictures were very misleading! I'm not one for the SS grill and spoiler really and you couldn't see the full taillights yesterday. After seeing the Z28 I feel like they did a great job, besides the lack of radio and fog lights. (make those optional GM, especially the radio) I'm even for the new bumper and taillights. I see a slight Third Gen looking headlight recess in that front bumper and some 69, 2nd, and 3rd Gen in the taillights, especially with the cut into the quarters. They are more "Camaro" than the last ones because all 4 Gens before had a similar design at some point. The louvers look like IROC-Z louvers almost exactly, just with a border and a more plain design. The front splitter and rear diffuser are a little big and it's a little weird that the 28 isn't in the middle of the Z on the emblem though. Overall, this is a fantastic job and a long awaited win for us all! Thank you GM!

Depending on the price, of course, I think Chevy is taking a gamble, or calling our bluff, or both with this Z/28 to see if "bare-bones/performance only" will be a success in a street legal car...If it's affordable, I hope it will be a success...

It's already been said the 2014 ZL1 will also have Recaro, but they may be optional, but it will be possible.

I might have to steal those wheels and put 'em on a ZL1.

Edit: Tires too.

Sorry if anyone's mentioned it so far, but am I wrong in seeing that the Z/28 does NOT have the fugly chrome strip above the grille!? Nice move on that one.

The chrome strip is probably part of the RS package along with Halo HID headlights and LED tail lights.

Correct, no magnetic ride, but there is a new 4 way valving within the newly designed dampers for the Z/28. Not manually adjustable.

Chevy is not calling any bluffs, and is laying down it's hand to take the pot. Hopefully it's not too expensive, but, as the Z/28 board has speculated for along time now it might come in just shy of 50 large, before any options.

What OldScool said. 50ish before options. Final answer.

I'm with you on that my friend! And if it has any of the sound of the Lingenfelter L28 Camaro (doubt it will sound quite that good), it will sound awesome while running awesome.

[QUOTE=OldScoolCamaro;6345562]Correct, no magnetic ride, but there is a new 4 way valving within the newly designed dampers for the Z/28. Not manually adjustable.

Based on this statement - Compared to a conventional damper that offers only two-way tuning for bump and rebound, a spool-valve damper allows four-way adjustment to precisely tune both bump and rebound settings for high-speed and low-speed wheel motions.

I assumed that you could tune to the track conditions or are they saying they tuned it? Typically, one may tune the suspension to a particular track.

Will it carry the same "on track" warranty coverage as the Z-L1? Anyone know?

I have to come here for support... My whole family thinks I'm nuts.

I've been jumping up and down with excitement about the Z28!!! I've been hoping (dreaming really) that Chevy would make a Camaro with the LS7 in it, and now it's here and I can barely contain my excitement!

Can I afford it? At $60k, probably not, but the fact that they built it is AWESOME! It means I may find one used some day, and that's gonna be awesome!

Who else is crazy excited?!?

It's great to see, but then we will come down to reality soon enough...They always tout the latest and greatest thing...but guess what, not that many of us can actually afford it...lol...

I'm glad to see the Z/28 return, and can't wait to see Ford and Chrysler's response to this. I do have to say though that the back end reminds me of a 67 Impala, and not in a good way...

Look at the readout, it shows a channel on it.
If they were going old school maybe it should have been an AM with no CD player LOL...

I'm not diggin' those stick on fender wheel well flares. Hopefully they will stamp them into the fenders and quarter panels.
Other than that looks pretty good.
