Whatever the name is, I am very excited for this car! ESPECIALLY if you can swap a G8 front fascia on it!

to me the g8 style was one of the best be for the camaro. i would love to have one of the new 14 ss or what ever they call it. but would rather have the 6th gen z/28 if it happens.

At first I liked the idea of just calling it a Camaro and it either having a V6 or a V8 in it (meaning no "Z28" name), but now if they bring back the Z28 name it should go like this:

Z28 = V8
Camaro = V6

Isn't that how it was for the 3rd and 4th Generations?

Yes. That's the problem GM has put themselves in with so few V8 options available. They are trying to use these iconic badges from the past but they can't do it the right way and end up doing it wrong.

Z/28 as a base V8 on the 4th gen which people hate and the SS is now the base V8.

Well technically it's the same car, just a newer model of it

Well I guess I refine my statement by how general you are looking at it lol. Technically its still a Chevy and called a Camaro but the model year is where your differences come in.

When I think "car" I think of general terms for all of its generations. Model (or model year) is where things get different and you sector things down even to trims/options.

In the end I think car is a very broad statement but I was just yanking your chain because you did narrow it down to model

Technically, yes it does. The Chevy Caprice (aka Holden Caprice) is Just a Chevy SS on a stretched wheelbase to give more interior space, and with a bigger boot. They use the same Zeta architecture, engines, suspension, etc. The Caprice is more of the comfortable business mans car, where as the SS is the Sporty Performance version. I see no problem calling it the Chevrolet Caprice SS. I'm really not sure why they don't.

God told me Pontiac will be back with a Trans Am, that will be so fast and mean looking, it will come from the factory with a complimentary transferable graveplot.
