Besides, it would be stupid to do otherwise.

They already have the brand. Don't need to reinvent it.

How about an option for "No, I wouldn't buy it because it's not called a Z/28 and I don't want something called a Z/28."

Or something like that who would be enticed to buy it if it was called a Z/28 but just being an SS with more power isn't enticing. However, I also think the SS should be top of the line, not the Z/28 as the SS was supposed to be back in the day.

I will love it just the same!

I think that the branding is already done for Z/28 so it is a natural fit. But if it is any sweetier than my 2SS I will still be a fan no matter the name.

I was waiting for this suggestion. I can't imagine it'll be anything other than "Z/28" or something with a "V" in it.

I've been stuck on the idea that it'll take the V badge along with all those other CTS-V parts...

The V series is a Cadillac only branding, it's not going to be shared with Chevy.

Chevy is about the "Z" and "SS". ZR1, Z06, ZL1, Z28, Z66, and Z71 RPOs all appear on their respective models ('Vettes, CAMAROs, Silverados, for example).

Sooooo the announcer's on Barrett-Jackson were talking about the Hendrick Motorsports Camaro they just auctioned off and when they were talking about the supercharger that was in it they said that the upcoming "Camaro Z28" would be just like that car basically. To quote them

" What you are looking at here folks is part and parcel the upcoming Camaro Z28 is going to be right there including the supercharger. When it's factory produced thats what the Z28 will be right there" What say you GM? You holding out on us

I'm not sure how GM decides what to name each RPO code, but since the Z28 was an option for the Camaro back in the 60s, I think whatever RPO GM decides to name the option for 2012 should be the name of the car. I don't know, but I think ZR1 is the RPO code for our fastest Vette. When they mention LS1, LS2, etc, we all know what that means. I say call it whatever the RPO code is for the option.

Yup. Like I said, 1) we've been asking for a Z28, 2) they already have the brand, and 3) internal codenames have no external implications.

It's gonna be a Z28. I'd bet on it.

Zs were made for handling and performance It only seems right to bring back the Z now it will be the mightiest Z ever made if you would like something else you could always get a Yenko or COPO for straight line racing besides if ford can bring back the BOSS GM should give us back our Z we deserve it after all driving the new Z would be the most fun you could have with your clothes on bring back the legend bring back the Z THE SUPER Z
