And just like before, the V8 model will have 2x as much of both as the 4 can muster, and will sound 16x better.

how's this for speculation...it's the new alpha platform with the Camaro body on. Lighter weight maybe? Just sayin.

Ummm. Stupid question but how do you know it's a test vehicle and not some dude driving home that did some mix and match mods? I mean what do the pictures give away?

Is it the number on the windshield?

Ls-7 in a camaro sounds interesting but how much? I checked into upgrading with the build your own LS-7 through GM and the price would have been 22k plus. I think I can get more bang for the buck doing upgrades on my LS-3. especially when Gm is only getting 505 HP out of the LS-7.

Ok I've been looking at the pictures more...if you take the distance of the front fender to the ground and multiply it by the horsepower of the SS then factor in the number 4 for the quad tips minus the inertia from the flux capacitor.....it might have an LS7 under the hood. Hahaha

Love the speculation but come on. IMO GM will never put a LS7 in a production car again. I think the beast dies in the Z06. CAFE laws will kill it. We are only going to see smaller more efficient engines (that will still make good power).

I wanna play !!

Maybe the ZL1 has run it's course; no pun intended, and the Z28 takes it's place??? Boy this is fun. Sure would make the ZL1 special to those that were able to attain one in the few short years it was available.

Ok what do i win fbodfather

I think everyone is forgetting about those leaked VIN cards with all the engine options for 2014. There IS an LF3 which is a twin turbo 3.6. To me...that's just as exciting as an LS7.

If the N/A 3.6 lays down 323 what do 2 turbos add?

Manufacturers license plate on the rear.
In Michigan, a license with a 'M' in the middle indicates it's a manufacturers license plate.

We DO test them before you can buy them.


Actually the yellow car is a V14 that we're going to offer in 2035 -- but please keep that between you and me, OK?
But... are those the real headlights or not?

Just the vin card that someone posted a while back? I believe they finally came out and said that that vin chart was not complete nor neccessarily accurate and should not have been leaked.

For all we know there could be most anything under that hood from a LS7, a new LT Vett DI engine, a TT V6, or just a bunch of hampsters.
New camaro 1014! now whith the optional LH with 510 hampster Power! it would be so awsome for the MPG want one!

This car is a 2010 CTF vehicle and they are testing the dual mode performance exhaust system that will be available soon at your local Chevy performance parts dealer. It will work with 2010-14,15... V8s.

That is all. Go back to work now.

Can anybody read the date on that bell? All I can make out is 196?. If that last number is a 7 that would mean 1967, the first year of the Z28. Read between the lines people.

Life is hilarious. This picture is the first thing I saw on the kitchen table of my fire station, 30 seconds after my last post.

I realized that the Camaro isn't included on the list.

So, if this isn't a Z/28 test mule, where is our Z/28?
