Yes, It seems to still have a radio and CD player, just only one speaker. Would have been way cooler with a radio delete panel in the center of the dash.

I still wanna know the story on the color... Looks like pearl white but that color isn't listed in the 2014 changes/additions. That's definitely not Summit White... will they be adding this color, or is it just a flashy one-off white to look good under the lights for the unveiling?

The alarms and chimes work through the radio, that is why it was retained.

Yeah I understand that, it just doesn't make it as cool. The AC delete option is awesome, i wish you could do that with every model.

First, Glad to see the Z28 back.

I just wish it came back in a better looking style.

Front: Looks a little better with Z28 headlights. They just took all the Meanness out of it.

The ReadEnd: I still hate it. Its TooBland, too flat.

Well I guess those that said the current version was TOO Flashly will like it. The Z28 return may be enough to hold the Sale lead. Maybe, just Maybe.

NOTE to SELF: DON'T WRECK YOUR 2011 CAMARO RS/SS

I like AC sitting on the grid.....sweating my brains out inside the helmet.
Those seats are just awesome......GM finally did it right! They will sell alot of those seats if they bolt right in to other camaros.

Geez......who wants a ZL1 now?

The 1LE will remain the 'affordable' track-day option for those that want to drive their car everyday. I'm most likely going to get one since I doubt I'll be able to afford a Z28. At ~$40k its relatively achievable, and I like the fact that it has a stereo. 😄

I rather the z/28 . Not really big on the magnetic ride , I rather coil overs and the ls7 . That's my opinion

Incredible! This thing is awesome but it's probably going to be a bear to use as a daily driver. As atrack car absolutely incredible! It's like a 1LE + 11.

I still don't regret getting my 1LE this past Tuesday. This thing is going to have to be out of "MY" price range. You take what amounts to a $45K car and add Ceramic Brembos and an LS7. It's gonna rightfully be exspensive. IIRC the Brembos on a ZR1 Corvette were stated to be like $15K and we know how much an LS7 cost. Then they added carbon fiber. I can't afford it. I wouldn't mind owning it though.

All in all (with the exception of the hood and tail end) I think it's an INCREDIBLE car.

I was actually clapping watching the NY autoshow video. Glad I was alone!

The car is pretty much what many of the regulars in the Z/28 threads were wishing on. Good for them! And Chevy!

When people were guessing about what the "styling and performance" upgrads for the 2014 were going to be, I thought about ceramic brakes and a increase in hp for the ZL1. Hmmmmm, I wonder... Though, that would probably put the ZL1 back on top of the cost list (if the "most expensive Camaros" magazine quote is true). I guess we'll know soon...

GREAT car! It will definitely fill the void for those that wanted a true track ready Z/28.

Oh, and I was wondering how much the C7 seats were and if they would fit in the Camaros (airbags, heating = Camaro like). Now, they have these Recaros!!!

AGain, So so glad I pulled the trigger on my '13 AGM ZL1 !!!!!

This is my opinion only.... please don't criticize as this represents my likes and dislikes. Everyone thinks differently...

Z/28
PROS:
I like the wheels, but they are 1" smaller than ZL1

CONS:
1. You have to pay extra for A/C, Wtf, okay.... how much more?
2. Only 1 Speaker, wtf?
3. Manual adjusted front seats, again wtf
4. No HID or FOG lamps
5. Yes, tail lights do suck
6. Yes, hood has a dryer vent installed -it also sucks
7. No seat back pass through, this is actually a very nice feature
8. Interior sound damping mtl removed; so now you also hear the highway

I seriously doubt the sunroof and Nav will be an option

I seriously doubt it too, and hope they aren't... defeats the whole purpose of the Z/28. You don't seem to get the whole concept of this car... it's not about loading it up with creature comfort options...its about building it as a hard-core racer that is still legal for the street.

PROS:

1. You have to pay extra for A/C, Wtf would someone want A/C in a Z/28 for?, okay.... how much more? Who cares?
2. Only 1 Speaker, wtf would someone want to play music in a Z/28 for??
3. Manual adjusted front seats, again wtf would someone want to add 10 pounds per seat in a Z/28 for?
4. No HID or FOG lamps
5. Yes, tail lights do suck. You should compare them to '69 std tail lights and then comment.
6. Yes, hood has a dryer vent installed -it also sucks. It would be nice if it looked different from the other models.
7. No seat back pass through, this is actually a very nice feature

I said no criticisizms.

I'm an Engineer, I do understand the point here. Race track car bla bla bla bla... Lighter weight = better performance. However most people will buy them and use them for street use only. Just like SUVs that have never gone off-road.

I don't think people should pay a premium for less.

If you want to gut out your car to make it faster, then by all means be my guest. Go ahead and gut out your 2010 Aqua Blue 2SS, you would of definately paid much much less and will be much faster, but I bet the radio and speakers is the LAST thing you'll get rid of.


To each his own though, we're all still part of the Chevy fam. Proud GM has put out another great product! Sales will definately be strong and Stock will rise.
