2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 aims at the Boss 302

Track day beast!

Although I've owned more Ford Mustangs any other vehicle in my life, I'm not really a Ford person. I like all kinds of vehicles, I just happen to like reasonably priced American muscle. There were some things about the new Camaro but I didn't like which left me purchasing a Ford. I am very interested in the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.

This isn't like the Z/28 of the late 80s and 90s, this new Z/28 is a naturally aspirated American muscle car designed specifically for track day enthusiasts. Chevrolet calls this the ultimate track-capable Camaro. The vehicle uses a high revving dry-sump LS7 with carbon-ceramic brakes and fluid coolers specifically made for track work.

The only potential downside to this car is that it has a stripped-down interior that may make it uncomfortable for some drivers. The car is also light with a curb weight by 300 pounds less than other Camaros in the line and has a special tracking suspension and aerodynamic treatments. The engine produces 500 hp and 470 pound-foot of torque. Pricing is unannounced, but if those carbon ceramic brakes are standard you can bet this will be the most expensive Camaro in the line.

Oct 30 2014 6:08pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Coupe, Mazda, Rumormill The predecessor to the Mazda6, the Mazda 626, was sold in a multitude of body styles across the globe. It could, of course, be had as a sedan, but a two-door coupe, known stateside as the MX-6, was also available on the same platform. Now, a new report from Motor Trend claims that a two-door version of the modern Mazda6 could be on the way. This would be remarkable for a number of reasons, as automaker ...

2015 Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE Tested: Transformed Track Star

Oct 30 2014 4:18pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

It’s not easy to see out of a Chevy Camaro. That’s just an inescapable consequence of forcing 1967 design cues onto modern, safety-compliant hardware shared with the Chevrolet SS and the late, lamented Pontiac G8. You’ll have to live with this poor visibility if you buy any Camaro. But opt for a Camaro SS equipped with the 1LE pac ...

Oct 30 2014 1:14pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: EV/Plug-in, Nissan Nissan has sold more pure EVs in the US this year than any other automaker, ever. And there are still two selling months left.

World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner Wins Chevy Colorado, but #ChevyGuy Wins the Internet

Oct 30 2014 12:48pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Not everyone is cut out for public speaking. People who are good at it make it look easy, but if you’re not a natural, the stress can be debilitating. Now put someone from the latter category on live national TV next to the World Series MVP. Things may not go as originally scripted. Such was the case for Chevy sales and marketing regional zone manager Rikk Wilde, who got the call to present San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumga ...
