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?

Do you want a real Z28 or a blown 550hp car? You do realize that the Z's were more track cars with smaller engines, and better suspensions while the SS's had the bigger engine, right?

I think you just want the power, and could care less about the moniker.

I'm one who wants the power, and doesn't care too much about the name. I seriously don't think it's possible to trim enough weight to make it a good tribute to the original, so I think it's going to be easier to add power. I'd like to keep many of the aminities that look like comes on the SS, and I just don't think the market will support a limited production, limited content car. I don't see how GM would make money on a car that comes with less...

Supercharge it, add bigger brakes, beefier powertrain and chassis, and call it good. That's my 0.02.

they could trim weight with carbon fiber, add maybe 30 more hp and a race prepped suspension. unlike the ss which has a sport tuned suspension. either way that would make for one stout z28.

I can totally understand where you're coming from, but who's going to pay for all that carbon fiber? Have you read the clearcoat for the exposed carbon fiber on the ZR1 costs like $60K a gallon and there's another additive that's like $2K a quart or something so the carbon fiber doesn't break down from UV light? I don't want to pay $50K+ for a Super Camaro and I think adding power will just be easier.

Like you said, either way will work

the only reason it costs that much for painting it is because they are leaving it exposed. I don't want my carbon fiber exposed I want it painted. lol.

but I do believe that a lot of people will be disappointed if the z28 doesn't have 500+ hp. and honestly i would be slightly but would be completely happy with a race tuned suspension and 50 more hp.

Ed-zackery, I'll put some retro Z/28 badges on it. Badges? did someone say badges? A more contemporary badge would be fitting but this will do.

Merged? I haven't looked through this to see. Maybe the evil shunt captors deleted it as part of a conspiracy to hide the truth of the 5th Gen Z28.

Yeah, I know mine was merged with yours, but I don't know if yours ended up getting merged into this one (I think it has because of how high the post count is.)

Maybe we could persuade a Mod' to start another thread strickly dedicated to our ideas of demonstrating our support and humble suggestions of what we think a Z28 (or other moniker) should be.
