How long has the LS7 been swapped into the new gen camaro.Suspension upgrades,exhaust,elctronics,wheels/tires nothing new
just now GM has decided to put a moniker on it and do it themselves and after 4-5 years call it a Z/28.We can argue semantics but my original beef is
4-5 years too late.Should have been offered from the get-go.

Once again you have not been paying attention to what they have put out. A example would be the Carbon Ceramic brakes. Show me one aftermarket tuner that installs them on new Camaro's with antilock brakes. Just one.

The Mustang will never be second to anything.

Interesting as I always thought they were 2nd to Shelby Mustangs! And by comparable product, the Camaro. Smiley

I agree the Camaro is a much better looking car when you compare them side to side. If the Challenger is so great why did they sell so few. Looks like chevy may have made the right choice with the 5th Gen design after all.

So I've read all the posts so far and am gonna throw my 2 cents in.  I have a 69 SS350 and ordered a 2010 SS when you couldn't hardly find them in a dealership.  Love to drive the 69, but was SHOCKED by the power and handling of the new one!  Still puts a grin on my face every day after 3 1/2 years of ownership.  That's with the LS3 and stock SS which now everyone seems to call a pig but is more car and performance than 99%
of drivers could handle full out.  (426 hp LS3 is more than most 427's put out back in the day, and it pulls from way down low) Now we have better handling, less weight, and LS7!  i'm sayin don't knock it till you've tried it...visibility is fine after 2 days...now I wonder why other cars have such tall side windows.  Is it perfect...no. But it IS one hell of a car at a reasonable price.  Can't wait to see Gen 6!

Are you saying that you got used to the 'sitting in a hole', and the poor visibility  from the drivers seat after driving it two days?

I love it, but I'm going to need more than one speaker! Maybe I'll pop in some Jensen Triaxials and an under dash Pioneer Supertuner! Really need a white ball Hurst shifter too. I hope it's around $40k.

If you want to put it that way, yeah pretty much.  As much as I love my '69, and I think that's one of the best body styles ever, it looks kinda old and drives kinda old next to the new one.  I get it, it is.  But that's the point I'm trying to make.  C5 is an awesome modern Camaro in any configuration and comes in enough choices to please a lot of people.  It's not perfect, nor would it be to everyone no matter what they made it like.  I'm happy we've got our nameplate back on a much better machine than we've had in at least 40 years.

The last generation Camaro was fine...when they "tweaked" this time, they forgot about the "first gen" Camaros. 
In my opinion, "old school" style and designs sell.  When its all said and done, they'll go back to square one. Stay tuned Camaro lovers!

I like everything about it except that I read somewhere, can't remember where though, that the new Z/28 was going to cost more than the ZL1.

Remembering that sales are the primary motive and Camaro leads in their market segment, why would Chevy change?

Two friends (married couple) who love cars and Corvettes were up to the New York Car Show and they were both extremely impressed with the new to come Z/28. She stated she liked it better than the new C7 Corvette and he said just looking at the car and those brakes its bad to the bone. They were also impressed with the engineering that went into the car that will assist it being a beast on the track like some some carbon fiber items.
