[Comment From Ironhead Ironhead: ]
just logged on, am I reading this correctly? ZL1 is what all who have been waiting for the arrival of the Z28 is called ZL1? or will there be another model called Z28

John Fitz - Camaro Marketing Mgr:
Ironhead... We continue to work on evolving Camaro. Regarding Z28, all I can say is stay tuned...

macc24 07-27-2011 08:25 PM

Should see it one or two model years before the body/engine changes. (The opinion expressed here is in now way related to any insider information)

CamaroSpike23 07-27-2011 08:31 PM

moved to the Z28 section...

If GM does decide to do a Z28, about the earliest we'll hear about it is after the ZL1 gets launched.

I think there should be one, and there are a number of us on Camaro5 that feel the basics for a Z28 should be an LS7 Camaro with an upgraded suspension. Others have other views, but that seems to be the most popular, followed closely by a car with an upgraded LS3 of some sort (again, with an upgraded suspension)

It's been said before from the GM brass to expect something new every 6 months. Since the vert is out and the ZL1 is due 1st of the year, I would expect sometime in the 2013 model year. My guess they'll finalize the new Corvette and the 5.5L V8 before annoucing plans for the Z28.

The ZL1 is your Z28 for now, like it or not. How much different could a Z28 be from a ZL1? If there will be a Z28 you wont see it untill the 2nd or 3rd year of GEN6.

Yes.

:word: Welcome, to all!

One thought to keep in mind: Gen-5 Camaro is the ONLY generation NOT to have a "Z/28"...

So far... :D

truth411 07-28-2011 09:55 AM

Since it is expected for the 6 gen camaro to come out model year 2016, then heck yes there should be a Z28. Personally I am guessing that GM will make it for the 2014 model year.

Black5thgen 07-28-2011 01:19 PM

I would bet there will be a 5th gen Z28. It may be a limited car but there has been a Z28 produced in every generation. It is too important of a nameplate and judging by the fact that the S/C Camaro is named the ZL1 which has less name recognition would lead me to believe there will be another 5th gen trim called the Z28. IMO it will be like a Grand Sport. Borrow parts from the ZL1 such as wheels, brakes and maybe some suspension and come with a warmed over dry sump LS3 for road racing. Both Pfadt and Peddars are GM approved suppliers. Also there is a little car called the SSX that may be a preview.

People keep quoting "the 5.5L" when in all likelihood, there won't be a 5.5L in the lineup. The 5.5L is a race engine only and its displacement has absolutely nothing to do with the gen V small blocks. When AMLS first restricted the displacement, production corvettes didn't all of a sudden drop down to a 6.0L LS7 in the Z06.

The next gen engines will almost certainly range from under 5L to over 6L, depending on the application.

Oh yes there will be a 5Gen Z28. I know this for sure because... and you can't get closer to the truth than that!
