Some of you are confusing all the special edition cars with the Shelby GT500...and understandibly so.

However the Shelby GT500 is a complete factory built car. It is truly a FORD SVT design with Shelby's name plastered on it. Ligenfelter and the like are more comparable with Roush, Saleen, Steeda, etc.

The true Shelby in the "tuner" sense is the Shelby GT and Shelby GT-H which are actually built by Shelby's company at Shelby facilities.

Either way I don't think it will be necessary if there is a Camaro that becomes a GT500 killer or not. The Camaro SS is taking up a nice middle ground between the Mustang GT and the GT500 in terms of horsepower and maybe price. I personally think that is a prudent place to be.

If there is a super LSA or super Z28 model, then I imagine it will come out as a 2011 or 2012 as other indicated.

If then, I'll go get a used GT500 rather than waiting so long

THE Z28 PROGRAM IS DEAD!!! PLEASE READ!!!

Everyone who is opening this tread is saying this guy dosn't know what he is talking about. "Wrong!" I have a very good friend of mine who was involved with the new Camaro project espically the Z28 program. He or she was taken off the project due to the cost of the vehicle would not come in where Chevrolet needed it to. Chevrolet brass found the car out of the price range of the Camaro buyer. The Z28 program is cancled! I am going to buy a SS now, which sucks! This would be a good question for the F Body Father.

I wasn't saying that, I'm not a big fan of the GT500 myself. Too many Mustang GTs can be custom built better for cheaper IMHO.

I don't think we should sweat what the base horsepower figure is anyway. Camaro SS has 422 hp and the GT500 has 500 bhp. So what? It is too easy to put either car well past the 500 rwhp mark. Simple as that.

Z28 DEAD!

I wish I was wrong! I will donate every one of my Camaro's to charity if I am not telling the truth!!! I know everyone wants proof, but proof gets people fired at GM! I want a 550 HP super charged car more tahan anyone on this forum but the 100% truth is it is dead!!!

honestly, there are twin turbo C6 LS3 cars out there doing 600+rwhp, so for about 10k installed, you can get a supercharger or turbo system that will take the car to well past what GM could ever hope to market... and make the car fast enough that you'd have a GT500 killer and a good corner carver.

Merged...We'll not have another one of these threads cause panic over nothing.
This is too sensitive a subject.

I'm sorry, IROCZJEFF...without proof (yeah, I read what you said)..........
The Z28 is NOT dead.

It may not be called a Z28 but I honestly believe there will be a 550 HP blown camaro in the pretty near future. Theres just too much information floating around that supports a blown camaro to say for a fact that one person (your firnd is correct at this time. Oh yeah, about your post and giving away your camaros to charity. when the new "TOP DOG" Z28 GT 500 KILLER or what ever they call it comes out, can charity start in my garage?
