Even though neither is on sale as of this writing, both the all-new 2014 Corvette C7 Stingray and 2014 Chevy Camaro Z/28 are considered to be fantastic examples of speed and road course proficiency. And despite the two sports cars being solutions to the same equation, both are visibly and mechanically quite different.
One has an estimated 450 horsepower, the other 500 horsepower. One has two seats, the other has four (but just barely). One has premium features throughout the cabin, the other is strictly business. One is loaded with cutting-edge technology to make it go faster, the other takes a minimalist approach to make it go faster. And one uses magnetic ride control dampers, while the other uses a unique DSSV setup.
Yet both the Stingray and the Z/28 feature/offer racing seats. Both carry Brembo brakes. And both cradle naturally aspirated GM Small Block V8 engines powering the rear wheels. But if you were in the market, which would you rather have? The cutting-edge 2014 Corvette Stingray? Or the gloves-off Camaro Z/28?
