Sounds like a rehash of our boards and threads, nothing there beyond what we have already discussed here.

I don't know. There is a lot of what we've discussed, but there is also a bunch of random crap thrown in from people that are fanboys for other cars, then there's a few decent ideas that I don't remember seeing on Camaro5. But from the sounds of it, a lot of the what the fans of the Z28 over on Motortrend are saying falls in line with the most popular ideas that we've discussed here.

I posted a bit prematurely DG, I only read the article writers initial comments and question surrounding the pole. I didn't hit on the link or read any further into. In retrospect I should have delved further into it before posting. Like Dragoneye says''' Read before you post"

When the article said the ZL1 would be limited to 2013/2014 did he really mean 2012/2103??? Whats your guess (since he did not even mention 2012)....

So one person posts in the comments that he has "sources" that confirm that the Z 28 is already in the works and we won't have much input because it's already being tested... IDK if I believe that. Most of the comments do keep rehashing what the Z28 should be and what I don't get is why people think it should be some middle of the pack HP# well handling car???

We are in the midst of a muscle car war here folks!!! Build the baddest, fastest, strongest, on the edge of street legal ride you can. The Z 28 should resemble what the majority of SS owners are trying to achieve in modding their current Camaros...better suspension/handling and drive train, lighter wheels, better/wider tire patch, stiff chasis, weight reduction whereever possible coupled with INSANE HP/TQ!!!

I hear all this crap about the Corvette..."chevy won't let the camaro have more HP/TQ than the flagship vette" WHY??? The corvette is not in competition with another make/model.

I've selected mods for my camaro (see sig) that have resulted in a safe/strong 731 HP at the crank and am running on pump gas and am street legal (for now). If I had some carbon fiber panels here and there for weight reduction, some ground effects, that MR suspension, the new ligenfelter diff and some light weight forged wheels I'd have what I think the Z28 should be.

Chevy has said the ZL1 is the Flagship Camaro. The Z28 should be the Boss comparo. It would also fill the HUGE $$,$$$ gap in the Camaro program. I could elaborate, but I won't. Nuff' said.

apparently (according to one unconfirmed source) the flagship ZL1 will be gone in 2 years then what?? All I'm saying is that GM should try to swing for the fence in this pony war...would it have killed them put a 2.3 L supercharged LS7 in the flagship instead of the 1.9 L supercharged LSA?? Anybody out there with an SS that slapped any of the aftermarket SC's on their car are at the same numbers as the ZL1. I know that "numbers" arn't everything, especially to anyone that knows what it takes to effectively use the power but to the general public...it looks like the flagship got spanked before it was even in production.

Do you still think that the Z28 shouldn't be the top dog camaro if the ZL1 goes away? Should it still stick with competing with the boss if the ZL1 goes away and leave the GT500 alone as the uncontested champ of muscle cars?
