You need to "fact check" your friend. The new Z28 will have a 505hp engine similar to the C6 Z06. Also, comparing the Z28 to the Mustang GT is not a comparison. The z28 will probably cost $60K. The Z28 is a track beast, think Boss 302 with 500hp. The next gen mustang won't have a Z28 equivalent for a year or so after it's introduced.
So, your friend is comparing cars that aren't even available to the public, final specs aren't available and the cars aren't even comparable. Your friend needs to be educated, to put it kindly.
