It would be nice but way too soon. Most likely the New York Show at the end of April.

I think from now until whenever it's actually revealed, there will be a rumor that it will be unveiled at the next auto show. Even if the rumor is true, it will still have been started out of thin air.

Unless Fbodfather or another insider at GM tells me that it is going to be there...forget it...internet rumor # 1,000,001 about the 'Z28' that we have been told time and time again is not going to be called the Z28.

I will wait for Scott to spill the beans.

It may be a Camaro, but a Z28 it won't be. I'll believe the vibe that Fbodfather says before I'd believe anyone else outside of GM.

Whoever said that?

All I've ever heard was that nobody's confirmed the "Z28" to be in production...or that nobody's ever called it a "Z28"....

But nothing about it NOT being called that....

It sounds a little early to me, but that's just a big 'ole guess.

I just can't put much faith in an online blog or news article. I'll just wait until it happens. Then I'll be excited about it.

Angry Headline: 'Customers line up and camp out around Chevy Dealers all over the country"

Thats right.... you get in line, camp out, get your fold out chairs ready, wait, wait... wait... and then you enter the door and find out when the salesman tells you....

"Sorry Sir, our allocation has been all sold out"..........

No one has NOT confirmed it wouldn't be called Z28. All we have is an internal codename of "HP". I guess to the non-engineering world that sounds important, but it isn't. When's the last time you fired up your install of Windows Chicago or Windows Longhorn?

Internal codenames mean nothing. The only people that seem to be excited by internal codenames are people who don't understand how little they mean to a final product.

OldJedi: Way too soon? It's been in development for 2 years, who says it isn't ready?

toesuf94: we have not been told time and time again it won't be called a Z28, where did you get that from?

I have little faith in rumors, but I certainly have even less faith that an internal project codename will be the final-to-market name. That's just really, really silly.

I prefer Z/28 like most of the forums here have stated. However...

just like the Corvette changes over time with new meaning to each new name... I would really easily assimilate if if they would name the new HP Camaro (with the tandem drive train as the Corvette ZR1)

the All New, All Powerful, CAMARO ZR1. Wow!

Oh, and my Z Dog who rides "shotgun" would truly fill the role with a smile!

I gotta disagree with you again lol, in the spy shots we have of the "Z28" isnt there one that peeks inside and shows a piece of paper taped to the dash calling it Z28? Plus all the billboard and clay modeling stuff we saw from GM way back when said Z28 on it. I still think GM just jumped the gun and called the car Z28 before they knew how the whole muscle car scene would play out down the road, and now they're skewing the name to try to get it right.
At any rate, I dont think it will show up at this auto show, i agree with everyone who said a rumor will surface before every upcoming auto show that the "Z" will make an appearance until finally it comes true. But i wouldnt hold my breath until you actually hear one way or another from someone who actually knows...same as the name
