2012 content was announced already

I had gone to my local Chevy dealer the other weekend to check out the new convertibles. We got to talking about the ZL1 models, they told me the price will be right round that of the base model vette. Then they told me that GM is keeping it on the down-low, but there will be a Z28.

I sure hope so, I've read articles on the Boss 302, and it sure sounds pretty slick. With its owner adjustable suspension, that nifty "Track Key", performance build, and no frivolous extras, it sounds like my kind of car. What excites me more than that is the fact that GM always lets Ford run out the gate first, then one-ups them with their own model. The thought of a new Z28 Camaro that not only meets but exceeds the Boss by a bit makes me start thinking about trading up sooner than I'd originally planned.

why wait for a z28? the ZL-1 will be a better performer than the boss 302 and potential Z28 ... save yourself time lol

I stopped by dealership to order a 2012 2LT Camaro. I was first on the list for a ZL1 but bowed out after I heard that there would be a Z28. In fact my original deposit was for a z28, then they said no z28 just zl, finally i heard a z28 was coming.

Thus, i am getting a 2012 Camaro now and giving my 2011 Camaro to my niece. Then, I will get a z28 next year.

But to make a short story long, my dealer said they might come out with a z28 in a year or year and a half, that it was all up in the air now and that they may not come out with one at all. I think they will come out in 1-2 years and I will be first in line.
