09 ZO6 or 2012 Z28

I am wondering what most people would chose between.I have the chance to buy a loaded 09 Zo6 with 2,000 miles on it for $53K.I figure the new Z28 when it comes out will be around that number.I am really considering this beautiful cyber grey ZO6.

I Love my Camaro but a C6 Z06 would be my choice over a Z28.

Well, until the Z28 starts production (or at least gets closer to production) no one is really sure what the Z28 will be. With the Z06, you know what you're getting.

The Z06 sounds like a good deal to me and who knows what the Z-28 will be. Jump on the Vette and if you decide you really don't like it when the Z-28 comes out, trade it in on the Z.

It is a very good deal on the Zo6 and I'm leaning that way.The car is a loaded 3LZ with navigation and chrome spider wheels.I just really am curious about the upcoming Z28.The exclusive nature and probably rarity of the car is whats making me have second thoughts.

Agree with you on that one. Z06 is awsome and would very likely be the better performer, but the Camaro Z28 is going to be a pretty distinct car itself. Its too bad we don't at least have some good photos of it. Bad thing about the Z06 is that through all of its awsomeness, 90% of people would just see it as another corvette on the road and wouldn't have a clue. But then again, could probably say the same about the Z28 (cept thinking it will have a more aggressive front end making it stand out a little more)

If I get Z28 my way (even if I don't), I'd still roll it over Z06.

I still have a soft spot for Corvettes, as a past owner, and any ZO6 is a powerful machine. However, I would have to say, wait for the Z28 you won't be disappointed; that's all I can say

They really are 2 very different classes of car. To me the Vette is more of a luxury sports car whereas the Z28, fast as it may be, will still be a standard muscle car.

Well I think I'm getting the ZO6.In a year if the Z28 blows my mind I may trade, but I'm very doubtful.

ZO6 hands down, who cares if everyone else thinks its a regular vette. I dont buy cars for them, i buy them to make me happy. And as far as the comment on the "rarity", Check out the numbers on the 09 and 10 Z06, not a lot running around. Probably going to be plenty of z28s.

Thats a good deal on an 09, there are plenty of 06 and 07s going for that around here with more miles.

zo6 hands down. and cyber grey is one of the hottest colors.
no matter what engine they put in the z28, the zo6 will always be faster.
hell they will not make the camaro faster then the cts-v or even an ls3 corvette, but who knows. so much speculation going around.
