Camaro Z28 / "HP Edition" name choice poll

Given the rumor flying around lately that the 'Z28' moniker is not guaranteed for this archangel of Camaros (especially because there was no mention of the actual "Z28" name at the national Chevy dealer meeting)...I'm kind of curious....

Suppose the rumors were gone and it was definitely named Z28...would you buy it?

All are welcome to answer, even if you're not planning on purchasing this model anyways. Also feel free to discuss why a name would effect your decision, or not (I'm especially interested in hearing from the folks who think it shouldn't be named 'Z28'). But please refrain from arguing over your reasons. THANKS!

I think it shouldn't be called Z/28, because 1st gens Z/28 were made affordable to most, and I think the HPE more like the ZL1, and maybe the Z/28 with 450-80 hp, and suspension upgrades.

This is the 5th generation Camaro that I have waited patiently to buy. Power, handling, styling, the best of what GM has to offer to us today. The Z/28 was originally developed to be an absolute screamer on the race track by putting the best parts available into a package for a special Camaro and by 1968, only its second year of production, it was dominating SCCA Trans Am events, and continued to do so throughout the 1969 year. The heritage associated with this nameplate is second to none. If this car is going to be the pinnacle of Camaro performance in the 5th generation platform, then it deserves a name none other than Z/28.

It may be time to come up with a brand new name for the Gen 5 Hi Performance edition.
SS, Z28, ZL1 all have histories in Camaro and there are people who argue that "their" moniker is better than "yours".
To start a new chapter in Camaro history with the most powerful one ever, a completely new name is appropriate, IMO

I'm still buying it no matter what they call it!!

I voted wrong first but I changed it back.

I would buy it no matter what, but I think any other name other than Z28 is a shame.

Unless they name it the Panther Performance Camaro as previously suggested in the big thread, I'm in!

If its meant to be the king of road courses, Z28
If its meant to be the king of the drag strip, ZL1

I think it deserves the Z28 name. It will be the best performing Camaro ever (save for maybe the 4th gen ZL1's at the drag strip), so why would any true Z28 fan not want it? Besides, with the Z06 and ZR1 being the top levels of the Corvette, it just makes sense.

Save the Z/28 moniker for the Boss 302 killer...like I said in the other post I could care less is they just change the fender emblems to supercharged and its just known as "supercharged edition" ZL1 would make the most sense for this monster but looks like SLP has that covered already

What if they pull what they did with the Monte Carlo in 2004 and just call it "Supercharged SS?"

I think it deserves to be Z/28

The original Z/28 only had a 302 due to Trans Am racing regulations limiting cubic inches to 5 litre v8 or 305 c.i.. The Corvette GT2 factory car in ALMS last year had similar regulations limiting engine sizes even though it was based off the ZR1 Corvette and in GT1 it was allowed to run the 427 c.i. 7.2 litre v8.

The 2nd gen Z/28 starting in 1970 was offered with the 350 LT1 and not the 302 like the 1st gen , the 4th gen Z/28 was offered with the 346 LS1, so it's not like the Z/28 has always had the 302 engine. The Z/28 can be any size but it must live up to the all track conquering car that history calls for. I will still buy it regardless of what it's called.

Why not wait and see what actually happens. They may still pull the rug out from under this supposed unicorn (mythical creature). Wouldn't be the first time.

I would like to see the Z/28 be the competitor of the Boss.
I leave it to GM to name the beast that competes with the GT500.

I heard they are going to call it the z/28
-
They were only calling it the Hp Edition around GM to 'try' and advert suspicion of bringing back the z/28. which tho we all knew would happen. They try to keep secrets but do it poorly no?

misunderstood the poll... should have read closer... I meant to say that I would only buy this car if it was called the Z28... any model can be a HP edition or SS, but only a Camaro can be a Z28.

SS-HP

High Performance Edition will just be a option on the SS
about $20,000-$25,000
with all the goodies you put on aftermarket now.

Z-28 down the road a couple of years.

I still don't get it. The Z28 was confirmed already. It's on our homepage for crying out loud. There is no mention that it would not be called the Z28. Who starts these stupid rumors. :bangdesk:

You may be right, but all it takes is a little reading between the lines to see that there's a very real possibility that this vehicle may have a new nameplate and not be called a Z/28.

Ok, well then the MODS should take "Z28 Confirmed" off of the home page as this is not the case at all. Just sayin.
