Soooo.....does this open the opportunity for a 500+ naturally aspirated new Grand Sport with an almost believable buy in price? Just wondering.....seems a big gap between the Z06 now and the base LT4 engine.......both in horsepower and price ranges......

A pulley change may be all that is needed to swamp the few cars ahead of it in horsepower. And yes, the car is begging for all wheel drive.

That power graph looks jacked up though, with the 2 different scales for torque and horsepower. Confusing at first.

Glad to see the absence of the horizontal chrome bar in the grill. :thumb I thought that might last just one year. Now if they can just minimize the black panel on the tail . . .:BDH

Having a 2013 ZL1 Camaro and a 2014 Z51 Premier edition Stingray, I am wondering when is enough? If I keep buying these cars I am NEVER going to be able to retire. OH well. I wouldn't know what to do with a day off anyway, let alone a whole bunch of them, one after the other.

Foolish Child! There is no such thing as enough! My yellow 2008 Z51 coupe gets replaced with a yellow Z06 but I need MORE toys. Ever ridden in a 3300 pound truck that runs in the 10's? It sure will give the ricer racers a heart attack.

It's Here!

My 2015 Z06 is here! What a kick in the backside this thing is. Power to waste, 7 speed manual with the Z07 handling package. I just died and went to gearhead heaven.:happyanim:

For all of you planning museum delivery while there is still snow, take a close look at these tires. I am not sure I would try driving any further than across the street in snow!
