It appears the hood is the same. I'm still convinced what you see is NOT what you'll get. At least not everything. This is a test mule, probably only for testing drivetrain. Hood louvres could only be for increased cooling and design look-sees.

I could be wrong, but I'm not getting sucked into believing the car is pretty much as you see it. I believe something different this way comes.

I don't believe that's "it", either. Not for a second!
I agree and think it's just an mule with Z28 guts.

I'm no longer thinking the Z28 will be at the Detroit Show... It's Dec 20th and no news, no 'whoops' spy shots, nothing but this pic of the thing out winter testing.

Im wondering if the Indy logo on the door is a hint to when and where we'll finally see this beast.

Hope I'm wrong.

The only thing that makes me curious about "THESE IMAGES" same PHOTAG seems to be sole source on the Z28 images being posted of "RED & BLUE Z28's" and obviously the PHOTAG is within arms reach of them, and built some type of rapport with the "drivers" , why not snatch the black tarp off and take the photos we all want to see

Does anyone really care what this car can do in the winter? I think a very small percentage of owners will actually be driving this car in the Winter.

If GM produces a vehicle, it has to pass all the standard internal tests and requirements...doesn't matter if it's an Aveo (err...Sonic) or a ZR1.




...And I care a LOT how it'll do in the snow.

Atlas t-case?... Not that mine would ever see the snow, let alone the rain, but it certainly gives me confidence all the systems get this sort of testing. I just have to figure some SRA and SFA swaps

Who says they are not driving around up in the mountains where snow is blowing therefore it sticks to the car then they come down towards the ground and you get this picture.

It wouldn't make sense to spend millions to advertise a car that nobody could buy for another 6-9 months after the ad appears

Then do it with the Corvette. Same message, same effect, but people could actually go out and buy one.

Not the same, the Camaro has a much meaner look(actually a re-design) and will appeal to a larger crowd. The Corvette with the same body for the last .... years, that would be a waste of air time.

No doubt, to get Chevy in people's head... The Z28 should conquer Super Bowl Sunday.
