so I'm wondering what will the difference be between the Z and the Z51 (other than the obvious more bhp), I'm sure it will be lighter but will there be other suspension and diff goodies?

Can't wait to see this thing in its entirety, I wonder if they will do the same type of vids they did with the C7 introduction, little teaser videos.

what do you think the width difference will be between this and the Stingray? The same as the difference between the C6 wide and regular bodies? More, less?

I know I'm going to want one, but I'm glad I pulled the trigger on my Z51. Z06 production is scheduled to start late next year? Could be a while before they're available without dealer markups. I'll fully enjoy my Z51 I'm ready to move up.

Looks like cup wheels, running boards, flared fenders for wider rubber and carbon ceramic brakes.

I'm pumped, but hope they don't price it out of my range.

Just realized, this looks like a back wheel. We now know what the brake vents will look like.

No, that's definitely the front. 90 degree angle at the bottom of door edge, and vertical seam running down to side splitter.

I like! Hopefully silver painted wheels will be standard and those black wheels an option.

It's a the front wheel. The front lower corner for the door is a right angle. The rear lower edge of the door is a curve.
