The AC is a option ! But the car don't have a radio for music just for chimes, not like you would need it because you can listen to the beautiful sound of the engine. But I do think ppl will find a easy way to make it a less harsher ride. Like putting the SS wheels on.

I would drive it everyday. My commute is 6.1 miles and I rarely if ever use the AC, or even listen to the radio. If I had a long stop and go commute, I might opt for something a little more liveable. I had a Miata track beast that I drove on long daily commutes and I eventually tired of it, but a short commute would be no issue with the Z/28 as equipped.

I've read in one of the reviews that the A/C option is match with the Full radio/speakers option. They come together.

It's possible. The rear glass does have the AM/FM radio receiver built into it....

Cabin noise and NVH are the primary DD issues for the average person- higher durometer bushings and removal of sound insulating materials. No reason for the ride to be "punishing", just very firm. Broken pavement will not be pleasurable.

The carbon ceramic brakes will last "forever" in a street only driven car, so that is of no concern.

Tires are only suitable for +40f use. And you already know they cost $550'ish each. With no burnouts or super aggressive street driving, the Trofeo's will last 5000-8000 street miles. Or approx 4-5 track days depending upon driver's driving style.

No need for a radio nowadays but They should leave the 1/8in jack in the center console and connect it straight to the 1speaker so we can use our portable phone or music player... no?

I don't think your phone has enough power to drive a 6 inch speaker let alone 6 speakers. Still need an amplifier I think.

Right, the smallest one will be fine! I'm ready to take an extra pound.
