I would have loved seeing a fifth gen. Z/28 with the track oriented content at a price point closer to the SS as it was in the first gen. Based on the rumours and speculation thus far it appears that if we get a Z/28 it will be priced considerably higher than the SS. Clyde
yea, that seems to be the (unconfirmed?) consensus.
I would just hope the base V8 would come with the 'handling suspension'
and have the Z be affordable, put the SUPER charger in the SUPER sport...
either way as some have said, they can call it a Z/28, RS, SS, ZS, S28, LT or 1LE I think we will still love it, or one of them...
