2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28Chevrolet today announced the 2014 Camaro Z/28 will go on sale this spring with a suggested retail price of $75,000.

It does have the 7.0L LS7 engine with 505 bhp and 481 lb-ft of torque though, so it won’t be slow, and Chevy are claiming faster lap times around the ‘Ring than a 911 Carrera S (bloody hope so given it’s running with 100 bhp more than the Porsche).

2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z28Personally, I’m sure this is a fun car to drive, but if I’m shelling out $75k on a Chevy, there’s nothing in this car that would persuade me away from the Corvette (and that’s the fully optioned L3 trim with Z51 track pack for this price).
