Default Z51 Package - How Many will get it?

The Z51 Package returns with C7 and promises to make the standard Vette into a track ready performer. The question is how many will actually get the package?

Here's what it includes:

Track-capable Z51 Performance Package including: an electronic limited-slip differential, dry-sump oiling system, integral brake, differential and transmission cooling, as well as a unique aero package that further improves high-speed stability. Larger brakes and wheels.

You can also get it with the Magnetic Ride suspension and PTM.

I had an 08 Coupe with the Z51 Package and loved it so I know I'll be getting it when I purchase my car.

The price of the package hasn't been announced yet but I'm guessing it won't be cheap with all the upgrades you get.

So if your thinking about purchasing a new C7 will you be getting the Z51 package?

Default Only if it comes with it's own badge!

OK, it is finally being done correctly by team Corvette by offering the MR and other Z51 components TOGETHER! Yes, I know that the GS basically did this but they didn't call it Z51 then...now we can buy those hideous Z51 badges!!

That may be a popular mod, replace the Stingray with a Z51 badge.

I'll be getting Z51 and MR. Perfect of my application of a daily and weekend warrior (sometimes).

I'm more into strait line performance, and the Z51 option is going to cause the car to be much heavier. I will be opting out of this package.

1lt, Nav, Upgraded exhaust = lightest corvette

I'm not a "tracker", so this would be my exact list also.

I ordered my last two Corvettes with RPO Z-51, so expect I'll do the same when I purchase a C7. YMMV.

good move, and we will be able to afford tires when they need replaced... the Z51 wont have much in regards to tire options with the new 19, 20" wheel combo.

Base will have 18" in the front, and 19" in the rears, and will offer a ALL SEASON TIRE! this is huge because I live in Indianapolis, IN and we get all types of weather. I'm hoping the base corvette is <3200lb's however, we will have to wait and see.

Will absolutely have Z51 but without the magnetic ride.

I plan to track this car regularly and will make use of it's imrovements.

M7, 1LT, Z51 with sport seats (IF they are actually a big improvement over the GT seats)

From what I understand, you have to have 2lt to get Z51

I am still trying to decipher thru all of the Corvette options so as to be able to order what suits me best.

Never mind.. I was incorrect. 1LT allows you to get Z51

No one knows what the package price will be. I'm guessing $3500 and that's a very rough guess.

Almost forgot, you get shorter gearing with the Z51 package too.
