Actually, I think once the other '14s are on the lots and on the roads publicity and interest in the Z/28 will rise and we'll hear more about it...everybody will be more anxious to see it and learn about it as part of that model year....

I asked for some different rear looks. Here's a tail light change.

Colors! I assume the 5 colors will be black, white, red, blue and yellow. I would LOVE to see it in the new Limerock green though!

If I remember correctly, the Z/28 will go into production during spring 2014. It's still about 8 months away. Don't worry, the excitement will pick up again in late 2013/early 2014. I'm really looking forward to how it performs on the track!! There will probably be very few cars in the world that will beat the Z/28 on a road course (with minimal straight lines).

I'm sure the best thing about the Z28 will be that if you own one you will never see another on the road. I don't see many ZL1s and as much as I love the performance I can't see that many folks giving up AC and the comforts for a Z28 track car.

Nope. Black, Summit White, Ashen Gray, Silver Ice Metallic and Red Hot will be the colors for the 2014 Z/28.

You can get it with AC. What comforts would one be giving up?

Look where it says Z/28 model. This is straight from GM and has been posted in other places too.

We have a good idea of how it will handle as we have been running a very similar setup since 2009. It will handle great.

You won't be able to do a bolt and go on the Z/28 brakes. They had to develop a brake calibration for that setup specific to the Z/28. That means none of the existing 5th Gen brake calibrations will match the Z/28 hardware.
