That Z28 is the one, and the only, GEN5/2014 refresh model that I have seen to date, that I really liked .

This thing is just incredible in person. However, I think white looks a lot better

I went last Monday, and have to say I don't care for this car in black. Maybe if the splitter, rockers and some of the trim was more of a matte black I'd like it. Just seemed too body kit looking to me. The silver looks far better IMO. Awesome car nonetheless.

The Z06 (why are people still calling it the Z07?) was absolutely gorgeous. Cannot wait to see that thing in action.

I think it looks stunning in lighter colors like white, silver and red... due to the contrasts. And it's much more subdued (more sinister) in darker shades like black, blue ray, and ashen gray. But of course hands down, an awesome car indeed.

Because the C7 Z06's at NAIAS had the Z07 performance package upgrade... so they are technically correct.

Just amazing! I truly enjoy these cars... I find the fact that Chevy, Ford and Dodge have pushed these iconic rides to new heights in a time where we have become so conscience of our energy consumptions... that we can still find true American performance and power... true, there are many cars with greater potential and style... but only in American raw, brute and a touch of elegance do we find the true essence of our dream. I need nothing of your pretty thousand dollar emanations of our future... only can the American Muscle be envisioned again and again with such finale detail and remembrance of our heritage. If I had a dollar I could seed in the earth of our land, would It bear the fruit of American speed!

...the catch is....why does GM produce a pre-production ride in a color you can't get? What's the point beyond marketing and attraction to gain attention, and then not deliver on the final product. That's a bummer. I understand it's a custom paint job and all...but why bait and switch <on the gorgeous white color>.

Dude, you are literally on the same wavelength as me, I was about to type that...

That pre-production white was the tops!

It's so they don't accidentally sell the pre-production units.

I loved it too. Sad to see it not offered.

WELL as fine as a ride it is the fact that there is no auto stick sucks....we all know the auto is much better and faster at the track...and those of us that have a ZL1 that get all the B.S. of how is not a big deal or over priced or not a rare low production car from all the guys that drive a ss /v-6/LE based gen5's just watch my words those same people will be saying the same thing about the Z28 just because they dont have or have never driven one or ridden in one ,never mind wide open around a track it in,give it 6months or a yr...
If and when i do sell my ZL1 I will have one of the Z28 swapped for the auto just because i can do it....plus being in a wheelchair now i have no choice...I wonder if they will make a vert Z28 ?

I have a feeling those that buy it as a their only daily driver may regret the ride but The other thing i do not like it the bolt on rear spoiler looks too home made..I know that GM could of done a better job by making it one piece. I wonder how many of them will sell without a/c ? up north overseas or track only cars sure, so i dont think there will be a lot of us want to pony up 70k plus what the dealers will add..another 5 to 20k for the first 20 or so that have not been ordered...

I doubt anyone buys the Z/28 as their only daily driver.

I must say I'm really not a fan of the front end snow plow. Car with a rounded front bumper, but a squared off splitter.

It's all for downforce. Function over form.

FYI - I found this pic of the Z/28 taken at the show before it was open to the public. You can see the gold bowtie insert is intact.
