2012 Z28 to be faster on track than Corvette Grandsport and Z06 says GM Marketing VP?

"The Camaro Z28 is going to be faster on a track then both the Corvette Grandsport, and the Corvette Z06. Normally we would be afraid of stepping on our own (Chevrolet) toes, but we at General Motors really don't care at the moment about what cars in our lineup are faster or slower. We just want the Z28 to be the fastest car possible for under 45 grand, and if that means building a faster car then our own Corvette brethren, so be it." - Chris Perry (VP of Chevrolet Marketing)

I found this posted not sure if its true or not.
But theres some pretty big claims there.

Here is the article and the quote is found in the comments section

Me too. Faster on the track than a Z06 for 45k is way too good to be true.

A 4000+ pound Camaro faster around a track than a much lighter car that produces 505 HP?

I severely doubt it..but would be awesome if true.

As long as it wasn't a Carbon Edition with the PS2s, and so long as Z28 was runnning great tires, I think it could happen. Coming from a marketing person, though, has me a little skeptical.

Looks like the corvette boys, as well as the GT500 crowd are getting some competition!! If they could bring it out at a 45K base that would be awesome!!!
