That was my point to begin with. I love winning "debates" with facts, you like winning rants with "thoughts", and dillusional fairly tales of what might be in 2012.
Do your research, there are virtually thousands of announcements and reviews of the 2008 Camaro all over the internet with GM themselves "quoted" as to saying the 2008 Camaro will start to build in mid-to-late 2007 ready for the market in early 2008. Instead of looking up intelligent words in the dictionary to post in forums to add credibillity to your useless information spend a few moments doing research to backup your moronic blabbering.
This just further proves my point that if there is going to be a GM ZL1 product offering, we'll have to wait and see as there are numerous "hyped" up announcements of a 2008 Camaro that never came to fruition until 2010.
So are you quoting websites like this article at Top

"2008-2009 Chevrolet Camaro
Combining dramatic design and exciting performance, the Chevrolet Camaro Concept recaptures the spirit of one of the most popular sport coupes of all time and redefines the Camaro for new generations of fans.

The Camaro Concept embodies the performance and passion that have made first-generation Camaros some of the most sought-after collector cars, updating the formula with a fuel-efficient powertrain, sophisticated chassis and contemporary design execution. The goal is to make the sport coupe relevant to younger enthusiasts while retaining its appeal to its current fans.

"Millions of people of all ages fell in love with the Camaro for all of the right reasons," said Ed Welburn, General Motors vice president, global design. "Camaros were beautiful to look at and offered performance that could rival expensive European GTs. Yet they were practical enough to drive every day and priced within the reach of many new car buyers."

The long hood, short deck and wide stance of the Camaro Concept leave no doubt that it is a serious performance car. Those looks are backed up by a 400-horsepower aluminum small-bock V-8, a six-speed manual transmission, and a sophisticated chassis with four-wheel independent suspension.

Though only a show car at this point, the Camaro Concept is intended to explore customer reaction to design and engineering elements that might lead to an all-new version of the Camaro."

Please note that it says only a show car at this point to explore customer reaction....... that "might" lead to an all new version of the Camaro.

Or perhaps this one:

June 2006

Five months have passed since the Camaro concept made its debut. GM has paid attention to the industry's reaction and given the journalist community its first drive of this hot coupe. Have you been wondering what inspired the comeback, or when it might be put into production? If you have, then click on our video icon above to see that and more.

Some of the most important and captivating debuts of the Los Angeles and Detroit auto shows came from beleaguered automaker General Motors. Chevrolet's Camaro, GM's long-awaited response to the successful 2005 Ford Mustang, arrived at the Detroit show in concept form. Officially, the Camaro is only a design exercise to gauge public reaction, but we believe this pony car is on the fast track to production."

You'll note the date June 2006 and it is still listed as a show vehicle to gauge customer reaction, they "think" it is on the fast track to production. Now lets see......from show vehicle to production in under 18 months (2008).....I don't think so.

So perhaps your "reality" is a little skewed, not that it really matters to me. I know what I believe and that is all that is important to me.
