ZL1 is the name, Z28 is a story for a different day
 
Was the exact words of the GM rep from our dealer training

Of course they are going to build one.... They haven't even finished the ZL1

It's coming... I bet within a 2-3 years or so we start hearing rumblings and start seeing strange camoed up Camaro's with Michigan manufacturer plates testing in Arizona and at the Nurburgring

Keep the faith!

Team Camaro has much more to give us

I don't think it will even be that long. :thumbsup:

i think you will see the Z28 announced before 2012.for now just enjoy the ZL1.GM doesn't want to put too much on the plate too soon.

radz28 02-14-2011 10:46 AM

I think we'll see something Z28-related about 12-months from now. I know I want it back though!

Question for those of you with more knowledge of what GM could/would do:

So.. I am thinking I can't afford the ZL1 when it comes out or probably for a few years after, and I kinda want something a little better then an SS. If they do the Z28 do you guys think it'll be the middle ground between the two?

If they do a Z28...I've got money on it being a direct competitor to the Boss Mustang...a stripped, track/handling car with marginal power increases. An unbelievable racer...with compromises to get there...like the original Z28.

For those of you that chose not to buy a ZL1 (1 year away) and wait for a Z28 (2 years away) what happens if it is a lighter car but has a less horsepower engine (example: 510 HP DI engine vs the 556HP LSA engine)?

Well my guess is you'll have a great car that MIGHT be as fast as a ZL1, but not better, but you will sacrifice day to day comforts and ride pleasure. If it's on the new Alpha platform there could be some increased elbow and headroom issues. You can't lose either way unless you wait and the grim reaper ges you first. :thumbup:

nards444 02-15-2011 02:27 PM

instead of building all these differnt camaros, i would like to see GM bring back chevelle etc. Think it would be a be big hit

GM4lyfe 02-15-2011 07:49 PM

I agree that we should hear something by the end of the year or early next year about a Z/28. IF GM plans to use allready developed parts for the ZL1 R&D does not take that long. We see this with the Grand Sport Corvette that uses Z06 goodies. Expecially if they want to steal some of that BOSS spot light they shouldn't sit on their hands too long.

Hello everyone. It's good to see all the spirited discussions about our newest offering for the Camaro. Unfortunately there I do not have a lot of information on the vehicle or even the possibility of new products (the Z28). When I do get some more information (pricing, options and finalized specs) I will make sure to let all of you know. I hope that all of you are as impressed with the vehicle as I am. Thank you for your time.

car and driver states an april 2012 model currently dubed "track pack" could be named z/28 and possibly get the 7.0 liter. That would keep it with the classic style since z/28 was more handling than straight line balls out power like the zl1 is. This info was in the latest edition of Car and Driver

if a Z28 with an LS7 comes out next year (I'll buy one) there's gonna be a lot of crying! (by most SS buyers, but probably not the ZL1 crowd)

if that does happen i might be inclined to buy that instead of a SS or maybe talk to a dealership to see if they're goin to do anything with the Z28

A track car is not just about HP it's about finesse. 1/4 mile guys are all about HP, not us canyon/hill carvers. It's the whole package!

LOCKENESS-MONSTA 03-12-2011 05:55 PM

when my dad was at the dealer putting a down payment on the 2011 indy pace car camaro convertable he asked about the zl1 and the guy said they already have around 8 people are already lined up for a zl1 if they even get that many but they are smoking i would love to get my hands on one. plus in about 10 and so years that car will already be worth more then they bought it for.

2010SLVRBULIT 03-12-2011 07:52 PM

yeah, too much speculation on a 'z28', that GM doesn't want to dilute the release of the ZL1. I'd say 6 months post ZL1 release(per their 'plan')...

O44DOG 03-13-2011 11:57 PM

Man just let the Z28 fantasy go. It's not worth it. It does not matter what they call it: ZL1, SS, Z28, IROC, etc. someone is going to complain.

DZ28 03-14-2011 08:22 AM

I think the 7.0L is a real possibility; might as well build cars like this until you can't after 2015 CAFE requirements kill most of the fun cars with V8's...
