Amazing how composed the cars are. Rock solid. These things are going to be a joy to drive.

Automobile Magazine posted their digital edition last night, with a rave review of the Z/28 from Ezra Dyer. The only drive he got was during the test at Barber, so I wouldn't call it an in-depth review given the temps that day. Is anyone able to capture that review and post it here?

Ford HAS crapped. In an apples to apples comparison, they lost. That's just fact. Of course any manufacturer can say, "Wait 'till the next generation, wait for the new . . . ." and all players leapfrog each other until the end of time. But their best same-same, street/track car offering, lost to this Z/28.

Next generation may be different, but this one is in the books.

I found this interesting comment:
"You will find soon the story in Motor Trend where the pit the Z?28 against a AWD Porsche Turbo 911S and the AWD Nissan GTR Track Edition.
They first asked Al Oppenheiser what the 0-60 was and the quarter mile. He told them I don’t know. He said that the car was not a drag car and was made for lap times. Car and Driver did the test and found the car to be lacking to the others in the 0-60 and quarter mile.
But then they went to the track and the Porsche laid down a good time as did the GTR. Then the Camaro came out and put down a time just a little slower. Well they checked the tires and found they had too much air. So they reset the pressures and went out and beat both convincingly. Note too this was on a cold day where it was hard to get heat into the tires that the Z has that thrive on heat.
Now they stated in the story that many scoffers will say this was not a GT3 or the latest Nismo but you can counter that this was in the cold with a Z/28 that also included the air Conditioning and Stereo system that can be deleted for 50+ pounds more weight loss. And keep in mind the Camaro did it with an aging suspension and only RWD for less money.
Nice that this car is able to handle cars the Z06 is to be hunting and it makes one ponder just what the Z06 will do with the suspension it has under the car. I think we all will be in for some big surprises.
Just wait till they get the new Camaro with less weight and a newer platform under it. It may have the makings of a economy supercar of its own."
