It is just good to see that people at GM are still making references to it, which means it is not completely dead.

Chevy comes out with a Z28 i will be the first to order one, damn that would be so sweet. Gets me all giddy to think about it so i try not to. Still though Chevy is going to have to do something about their line-up. If a Z28 comes out it will blow the doors off the base vette and will probably be the same price if not cheaper than a base vette. Also might be able to compete with the Z06 which costs $80k?? something like that. What would Chevy do??

At the moment, I think the price for a fully loaded Camaro SS is very reasonable. I don't think I would be able to afford a Z/28 unless I find a better paying job before then. But I'm glad they are going to build it.

So the z28 comes out possibly in 2012?

I guess we know what made the Mayans nervous all these years............


In all seriousness though, I am at an impasse.

Do I stop all my mod plans and put that money into a downpayment fund for a new Z28, or do I just mod mine into a Z28?

A LOT can change in 3+ years, so much that you cant plan your life around a possibility. I'm going to get an SS and be happy with that. If the Z/28 actually shows up I'll trade the SS in. If the Z/28 gets canceled (again), then no loss.

Good one!

Since it will be a few years till it comes out, it makes me wonder what engine they'll use. I assumed they would use the LS7, but maybe they'll rework it for more power, 550 maybe?

i think that its good timing because it gives a lot of the first year buyers a chance to trade their car in for the z28 and not lose too much money...

I do'nt trust what GM representatives say for 3 reasons (don't understand this as disrespect):
First, if they really knew what would happen the next 3 years, then they 'd have anticipated today's crisis 3 years earlier.
Second, I can't imagine them telling the truth to competitors.
Third, I think it's strange to hear the Z will come out in 3 years ... just a little below the 4/5 years average people tend to keep their cars ... I find it strangely perfect for the "Buy an SS then trade it for a Z28" logic ...

I guess everything will depend on the sales number. If it's bad, they will forget the Z. If it's good, I'm pretty sure the vert and the Z will come out earlier than expected.



Ok, I also want a Z28, can't buy an SS to trade it for a Z28 (I'm european), and find it horribly long to wait 3 years to have the GT500 killer.
Positive thinking

Well, we'll have to wait and see to find out what really happens.

Hey, do you guys think the Z28/bumblebee hood will be functional? Ram air would be pretty cool.

So far the hood is the only thing I would even really want from the Z28 as far as looks goes. And there's tons of people that are going to buy it once its up for grabs so I'll probably just keep my stock hood and upgrade my car as far as performance (headers,exhaust,etc.) and in 3 years I should be able to stay right beside the Z! I don't really like the front fascia on it but everyone has their own opion.

The Camaro and Corvette really don't have as much overlap as people here assume. They share the following similarities: V8 engines, Chevy bowties, 2 doors, and 4 wheels. The Camaro is a blunt instrument, more muscle than anything else, whereas the Corvette is a true sports car - light, nimble, sleek, all-around sporty. And it isn't unusual at all to have the top model of one car go above the bottom model of the next car. A Cobalt SS, or even the next lower model can easily cost more and be better equipped than a bare bones Malibu. I really see no problem with that positioning.

The only thing I'm upset about is that my hopes for a Z-28 that reflects the heritage of the original and is better set up to go around a track that isn't a drag strip or drive along a road that isn't a straight flat boulevard are now pretty much officially shot down.

<<<<<Kept the Faith....

I wasn't planning on purchasing untill 2012 and getting a 45th Anniversary Edition and I hoped and prayed that a HiPo GT500 fighter would be out by then... sounds like my prayers are being answered!!!
