I'm predicting the 6th gen Z/28 will end up with the same engine the C7Z06 ends up with or some variation of it. That's all my speculation of course and GM could end up building a less extreme Z28 to please more people instead of the Z/28 like they did for the 5th gen.
this! They're going to pump Z/28s out like they're giving them away since the 5th gen will do so well at the track. Unfortunately the 6th gen Z won't hold a candle to this one but it may be a pretty decent track car. Who knows?

That's right! No more LS7s in production. If the LT1 is going to be Chevys bread & butter? Forget all the engines that come in to play after it as I don't believe any will bring more than 450HP to the camaro. It's 2nd gen all over again! CAFE standards coming harder and muscle cars are dying.
Gen V performance V8's will likely have as many variants as the current Gen IV's lineup.
