My money is on intentionally leaving headroom for future power increases. A little like stud poker if you will - you wouldn't play the whole hand out with your hole cards face up for all to see.

I am really leaning toward the Z as I like the size of the car-not sure I will like a "downsized" gen 6 camaro....

What's everyone think? I know, I have hard choices...
I think that snipping four or five inches out of the wheelbase would make it easier to shed a few lbs and make the car inherently just a bit more nimble in the process.
