Technically, if it's street legal, it's not missing anything...lol...

For what it is DESIGNED for it is missing nothing. If somebody want's more bells and whistles the ZL1 seems to be the way to go. JMO

The Z/28 isn't missing a thing! It's just what GM needed to calm the LS7 desires....and more. We know its a track car so the 1/4 crowd may find issue. Time will tell on that.

I agree with other who say that for what it designed for...it is not missing anything. If anything, it could stand to miss more things...like #'s.

I am warming up to the idea of getting one. I would never get rid of my ZL1 as I believe it to be the best Camaro ever made, even over the forthcoming Z/28. However, I want the Z/28 because I have a strong feeling that this will be the last true Z/28 ever made. I am less and less confident that the 6th Gen Camaro will embrace the Camaro lineage that the current models do. I hope I am wrong but I don't want to pass on the Z/28 and end up being right. So, with that in mind, the Z/28 for me is exactly what it is supposed to be.

It's missing the Ring time that it did recently, Why was that spectacular performance, that should cause the public to supposedly salivate, not good enough to brag about?!

It's getting old. Maybe you should just stay in the ZL1 section where you can be happy.

The times will get released when they get released.

Well that depends on how you judge "affordable". I for one have no problem paying for performance.
