It is supposed to go on the Alpha platform right?
Next years Z/28 will be built on the the current Zeta platform with a modified version of the LSA engine. Either 2014 or 2015, Chevy will release the Alpha chassis Camaro with most likely a derivative of the smaller sized direct injection engine. Ford might force Chevy to bring the Alpha chassis sooner if sales start to slip away from the Camaro.
