After all, the XLR was Corvette-based so could that formula work again? Possibly, but there would be one very large hurdle to overcome: while the XLR-V based at over $100,000, a cheaper Corvette Z06 was faster. Some may remember reports of those at Bowling Green and Chevrolet not being happy with the idea of the XLR being faster than the Corvette and in the end, the XLR wasn’t. The Allanté and XLR were also only produced for one generation each before being dropped so a successful track record with two-seat Cadillacs has not been demonstrated.
Pros for the ZL1 Camaro
Markus Bailey Sr. - I have the convertible ZL1 and it's fast enough for me. Good power, fantastic brakes and fun to drive. When comparing it to my other two cars I wish it were a little lighter.
Dewey Stump - I love mine. It has all the creature comforts and is a true muscle car. I also own a 2015 Z28. The ZL1 is a better all around car for daily driving. I'd go for it if it fits your budget.
