Tell me why a z28 has to have a supercharger and cost 45-50k? Seriously if they see the z as being very profitable a different way they'll make it.

Some people read too much into the news. And some people don't pay close enough attention to the back stories.

Many people knew the camaro was being killed off and why. And once the contract agreement was up we saw the concept. Guess we don't pay attention to what's important. Camaro is being built. If demand dictates and the general can afford it a Z28 will be produced.

You might have missed the article in this thread... It's whats caused the LSA/Z28 talk to flare back up.

Oh I saw it but I had faith in the ss production to begin with and believe the people still being neg about it's production and development are either reading too much into everything or not paying attention enough.

This closing sounds so stupid to me. HiPo are flagships. What do you want to build now? Prius?

Lingenfelter is my only hope right now ..

The Z doesnt have to cost 50k. It depends on the approach. Twin turbo the V6 DI, use it in other platforms to get economies of scale....then you would have a hi performing 450+ racer similar to the original Z's. It could be done for under 40k and I would buy one tomorrow. The SS remains the higher displacement, more luxurious model. Just as they were in the 1st gen cars.

Actually I think the last SS will be the:

SS Cruze next year, GM better drop that DI 4 cylinder in it

I know they are not dropping out the Rice rocket wars

They might just stick with the Cobalt SS for awhile since they are talking about building both for an extended overlap and the Cobalt is probably lighter.

ok so corvette and camaro aren't affected. What does GM classify as a high performance vehicle? IF anything those cars are focused on performance.
