I've driven a 2007 Corvette Z06 with the LS7 (427 ci engine). That engine is amazing.. not only in the power level, but also how quickly it revs for a big cube engine (not at all similar to the 'old school' 427 engine! My main issue with the 'new camaro' is the body .. size, weight and visibility from the driver seat. I think they tried to do too much in that desgin, and tried to capture not only the 1st design shape, but also the 'cartoon CARS' or whatever.. brutish look, and in doing that it loses a lot of the 'retro appeal' (at least for me).
That said, I like a lot about what GM has seemingly done for the Z28 model, and the PM's enthusiasm for the car, but I'm very curious what the price point is gonna be..
. In the past, when proposing that the Corvette offer a 'stripped down' model (wtih options), we were told that it was more expensive to offer the options (which complicate the assembly process), than to just put all the options on all the cars (ie. AC, PW, PS, etc)..
