That isn't happening, plain and simple. Especially if you want a V6 like whats in the GTR. Giving a base LSCamaro an engine like Fords Ecoboost might get you into that price point. But the added weight of everything involved now makes it weigh as much (or more) than an SS. On top of that, now you don't have the improved suspension (or grippy tires) from the SS so it would handle worse than the V8 car. Its throttle responce wouldn't be as good either. It wouldn't be as powerful as the V8 car, though torque could be comparable.

All in all, you'd have a car that is all around worse than an SS (except perhaps in fuel economy) for no obvious benefit. More importantly, it wouldn't have the handling that enthusiasts expect from a Z28.
Note, if I've gotten any facts wrong in the above, just ignore any points I made with them
