Then Vs. Now: 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 vs. 1967 Camaro Z/28

The original faces off against the modern Z/28 -- on paper, at least.

By now, you’ve read that the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 packs 505 hp, laps a rain-soaked Nurburgring in under 8 minutes, and is a brutal track-tuned machine. You’ve also likely read that GM execs view this as a “true” successor to the original Z/28, which was developed to give Chevy a fighting chance in the Trans-Am racing series. And you probably also saw we recently got our first crack behind the wheel, putting the 2014 Camaro Z/28 through its paces at Barber Motorsports Park.
But how do the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28’s numbers stack up against the original 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28? We crunched some figures to find out.
