Do you want the Z28?
 
Straight from the horses mouth

Will there be a Z28 model?

CP: "There will be no Z28 model. Through the four generations of Camaro, there have been cases where Chevrolet chose to make the Z28 the top dog or the SS the top dog. As you're aware, Chevrolet is encouraging the SS strategy with cars such as the HHR SS and Cobalt SS. Consistent with this strategy, we have a Camaro SS."

heres the link to the full interview

Crud.

pinkcamaro10 07-21-2008 04:31 PM

until Scott types it, i wont believe it.

Chemical 07-21-2008 04:31 PM

Wow, I don't even know what to think anymore...

So the NAME Z28 is out the window according to the interview, but that doesn't mean a monster Camaro is coming out later.

So maybe a supercharged Camaro? 550hp?

I don't care about the name just give me ultimate Camaro.

Wow...I wasted a lot of time

Isn't she higher than Scott in the food chain?

TAG UR IT 07-21-2008 04:36 PM

But we were told it was just being put off for now. What gives???

rlshky 07-21-2008 04:36 PM

also based on that interview (which I'm not sure I believe) the 4 gauges next to the shifter are for the "loaded" versions of each model only and not standard.

Muscle Master 07-21-2008 04:38 PM

I Don't know about the GT500, but the 6.4 liter Hemi is most likey dead for the Chally and Charger, but its been talks about upgrading the 6.1 like they did with the 5.7

Variable Cam Timing, or VCT for short, ...............doubt it

Mindz 07-21-2008 04:38 PM

They have been explained as a cubby if you don't get the model with them. It's official.

Crowkillers 07-21-2008 04:40 PM

Isn't the Z28 coming out the same year as the convertible?

The Z28 is supposed to cost alot more than the SS too.

At least that is what I was told.

My buddy works at the Chevy dealership here in my town and he told me a loaded SS is probably going to cost the same as a fully loaded Challenger R/T

Around 37,500

warbird81 07-21-2008 04:41 PM

MY HEART JUST BROKE WTF WTF :suicide: WHAT ABOUT THE SUPERCHARGER WHEN IS THAT COMMING. I NEED 500 + ALTHOUGH 400+ IS NOT BAD. MAYBE THEY WILL CALL IT THE ZL1. **** IM MAD NOW:hitcomputer:. I JUST HOPE THAT THEY WILL GIVE ME THE OPTION TO CHANGE THE FRONT END ON THE SS. :threadjacked: NOT FEELIN THE BIGGER BOTTOM GRILL.:mad0259: :paddle: :bonk:

deimis 07-21-2008 04:41 PM

while I understand their "theory" with this whole SS thing, to not take advantage of the Z/28 moniker seems like poor marketing strategy. Even if you didn't want to make it the "top dog".

Camaro just lost a bit of its soul to me with this news. :-(

Don't give me excuses about gas guzzler taxes, CAFE regulations and the like. They can make a world-beating ZR1 but not a Z/28??? I'm not smart enough to understand I guess.

Still a great car and I'm happy its back. Just had my hopes on seeing the Z...

camaro5 07-21-2008 04:41 PM

We were told the LS3 would not be used too...I bet the Z28 or whatever they call the LSA model will show up later. They don't want you to wait to buy. But, there is a possibility they will decide to cancel it do to fuel costs.

Agree. Cause the SS won't satisfy me at all

:bonk: Wow I can not believe they did not use the Z28 Badge!!:bonk:

4thGen 07-21-2008 04:48 PM

Doesn't mean it won't come later.

futureZ 07-21-2008 04:49 PM

Sorry but Z/28 is to Camaro what Enzo is to Ferrari. Personally I think Chevrolet is making a mistake. When someone says Z/28, there is no question what one is talking about.

With that being said, I'm still planning on an SS

joes3rdcamaro82/91/2010 07-21-2008 04:49 PM

Hey dude I have an SS, come check it out. SS What?

Hey dude I have a Z28, come check it out. Bad ass let me see it!

boxmonkeyracing 07-21-2008 04:50 PM

well hmmm with that being said why did scott state it was further down the road? interesting. . .

Chemical 07-21-2008 04:51 PM

I have a feeling it will be a long time before we hear any good news or any news at all as to whether they'll even do a monster Camaro.

...at the very least offer it as an "order only" option.

+1 I DONT UNDERSTAND THIS BULLSHIT:bs: WHY WOULD THEY HAVE THE TEST DRIVERS DRIVE A SUPERCHARGED VERSION AND THEN NOT MAKE IT. WHO IS GOING TO BUY THE ZR1 ON THIS FORUM. NOT MANY BUT IM SURE MOST OF US CAN AFFORD A TOP DOG 550+ MONSTER OF A CAMARO. THIS WAS A WAIST OF A DAY:cry: . IM DONE:barf:

Yup ... but the difference between "later" and "too late" is quite thin ... and the GT500 looks good ...

BAD ASS, I'd race you in my GT but you'll smoke it no matter what badge it has...


No one refers to a Camaro as an Ss or Z28. If you go up and talk to a random person, try telling them you drive a Z71, Z24. you'll get the deer in headlights look. People refer to a camaro as a camaro ss or camaro z28. I've NEVER heard of anyone just say I have a z28...
