The corvette isn't SOOO much better than the camaro, even though on paper it may seems so..

1le even beat the grand sport around VIR iirc.

A lot of people seem to think this car was made just to somehow bring that badge back.

The z/28 REALLY is a car for people to track, even with the z06 available for similar price. GM is serious about this car, and it WILL perform. Just watch...
the Z07 package on a Z06 went 7.22 and the ZR1 went 7.19. I am thinking the Z/28 could be a low 7.30s car (very respectable) especially for a "muscle/pony" car.

I would like to see how close the C7 and Z/28 are to each other.

correct me if i am wrong but isnt the ls7 a hand built engine? also isnt it an engine they cant mass produce do to being hand built AND the government regs, cafe epa blah blah blah? so there can only be so many ls7 sold in this country without screwin up their averages.

also as a car enthusiast i am happy the z28 is being produced even if only for one year. i am happy it isnt like what they did to the z28 in the 4th gen.
i am unpleased but not unhappy about the price point. i was out as soon as it didnt have an auto option but the price made it to where i wouldnt buy it then throw 10 grand at a transmission so i could drive it. if it really is going to be more than a zl1 i would rather buy a awd car and dump half the price of a zl1 and be the baddest car on the track. shit imagine what you could do with an mr2 and 40 grand?

i hope people drive these cars but i fear and think it will end up in a lot of old guys garages with a bubble around it.

for all the guys comparing a camaro to a corvette its border line absurd.

if you price it like a corvette it will be compared with a corvette


As for hand built - there is a link in the gen 5 forum about the COPO - watch the first section of that (from horsepowertv) the machines used to help build them by hand speeds up the process quite a bit.

They sold 6000+ in year 1 alone of the LS7. I am not worried about the engine being in short supply
