the GT-R is really more of a Z06 and ZR1 competitor, but it is interesting to see how the ZL1 compares to an established supercar. It looks pretty racy (and way more fun).

Interesting I just tried to build one on the Chevy website. The polished rims are only like 500 extra dollars. I assume that means you get those rims instead of the SSX rims instead of both like on...

It seems to me that mid-season 2013 MY is the time frame that makes sense. 2013 ZL1 Convertible will come out in Augustish, it appears, so Feb 2013 Z/28...stay tuned and hope...LS7...? Perhaps!

If it were available from the factory, I think it would draw some orders, as long as the price for the package would not threaten that of the SS. Maybe $2500 or less and I think it would have a good...

One of the major trim differences is the leather seats anyhow, and those would likely be replaced with something racier.

It is certainly possible. I think we've seen a new V8 in mid-generation on the Camaros in the past. The thing is there is no engine that clearly fits the Z/28 mold at this moment, so all we can do...

I'm with you there. I'm pretty sure its not a ZL1, but it still might not be a Z28. But, to be fair nothing conclusive about anything can be drawn from the car in the picture.

Cafe MPG is not equal to EPA MPG. 37.5 CAFE MPG i believe comes out to about 28 EPA MPG, which I think is well within reach for the V6, and not outlandish for a v8.
