Here we have the final Motor Trend long-term update for the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, the LS7-powered track car with turn signals. Sure, it’s chewed through 4 sets of very expensive ($2,200) Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires, but aside from that it’s needed very little upkeep (not that it was driven very much).
In its final stint with the Camaro Z/28, MotorTrend put it head to head with a nemesis – the Ford Mustang GT350R. During the comparison test, editor Scott Evans claims that he pushed the Camaro to its limits, and that it pushed back even harder.
One issue arose following the two days of aggressive driving; an intermittent power steering problem. Warning lights and ‘Service Power Steering, Drive With Care’ messages popped up, the steering felt heavier, and the problem would come back after it seemingly fixed itself. The culprit turned out to be a loose connection for the left, front wheel-speed sensor. It’s suspected that the tire replacement could have knocked it lose, but no one really knows for sure.
It goes without saying, being the steward of a long-term Z/28 Camaro would be an amazing experience, and we’ll miss reading about it.
