Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Confirmed
By Nadeem Muaddi

Posted: Jun 02, 2010 10:10 a.m.

Not to be outdone by Ford’s highly-anticipated reintroduction of the Mustang 5.0, Chevrolet is planning to bring back the coveted Camaro Z28.

Karl Stracke, GM’s Vice President of Global Vehicle Engineering, recently confirmed to Motor Trend that the rumored plans are true. MT writes, “Five minutes into the nickel tour of our facilities and out of earshot of his PR handler, Stracke casually served up unprompted confirmation of the return of the Camaro Z/28.”

Top Speed elaborates: “According to him things are going to change for the next Camaro Z28; it will be built on a new Alpha platform (and not the Zeta like the current car). He also said that he doesn’t like the steering wheel controls on the Camaro because they are placed too far and the driver needs to remove his hands from the wheel when trying to reach them. A couple of other tweaks will be made to ensure the new Camaro will be exactly what he wants it to be.”

Not surprisingly, Stracke’s bomb dropping has set off a wave of speculation.

“Stracke didn’t get into much detail about the Z28, but it’s expected to borrow the Caddie CTS-V engine: a venerable 556 horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter LSA V8 that fires the V Coupe to 60 in 3.9 seconds,” writes Motor Crave.

Motor Authority adds, “Beyond the upgraded performance, the Z-28 is also expected to get a more aggressive exterior appearance than the current SS, including larger air intakes, front splitter, rear spoiler, and unique interior treatments, with Z-28 badges inside and out.”

All that’s left now is to wait and see. According to Autoblog, “Chevrolet officials have declined to comment on the matter, but we're guessing that it might appear sometime next year as a 2012 model.”
that's news of news. . .and old news all in one.

we've had the MT article for a while now. . .

Correct
