Maybe a Z28 will come out later that has a higher output version of the LS3 or a LS8 and this Z28 will be 200+ pounds lighter than the SS.....................

if it is coming out it will be later. the only official no we've gotten about the Z28 is at the start of regular production.

Punk, I know where you guys are coming from when you say that if we talk about it, it keeps the nameplate and car alive. That's cool by me....

and if I didn't say it before, if the price is right, the Z28 is what I'd like to get....

But, I guess my main point/concern was the constant bickering. Since I'm sure we can all keep our heads on straight, let's continue the respectful conversation with one another.

Here's a couple threads that may help reduce the Z28 bickering.

If they can't do anything, I wouldn't mind them just offering the LS3/manual package with this updated Bumblebee look. What would it cost GM to build this? A hood, front facia and a unique set of rims of some sort.

Words to live by. gtahvit and I are pretty much on the same page, so if you Mods' want to reduce some clutter, feel free to merge my thread into his. I figure the more exposure GM could see here toward positive feedback and input for this model the better, but not at the expense of unnecessary clutter.

Not bad, IMHO. The front facia is a little much, however, definately different from base and SS.

If they could give us something similar, at least it's something. Maybe add a really stiff suspension and brake package to the LS3/manual package.

I didn't feel like I was not respectful. Myabe coz english's not my mother language.

I RESPECTFULLY apologize if anyone saw agressivity or anything like that in my posts.

You can read disappointment, maybe a little bit of anger, but nothing disrespectful (none of you is at fault if I don't get what I expected).

In sign of peace, I've even changed my sig!

But that's ok, I'm slowly dealing with my strong disapointment thanx to

Guys, like Scott uses words, you have to put your own play on words too. He's not the only one, you know! Have faith. Have faith. Have faith.

There might not be a Z28 this year. BUT....it's not like they could EVER make one again! TRUST ME!!!!!

THE SKY IS NOT FALLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!

Now....everyone take a deep breath.
I think there trying to protect the Z/28 and not have people wait for it. With the slim margins for GM on these cars as it is and having a tenth of its buyers 'wait' isnt a good business plan or model.

Punk, please believe I wasn't trying to point you out specifically. I wasn't. Believe me, I've read a LOT over the past two days about the Z28. There's tons of people who are concerned and some who really (IMO) over reacted. I did NOT mean to point a finger at you AT ALL and if I came off that way, I apologize.

Almost ALL of us have a great deal of care and love for the Z28. Everyone knows it. When someone asked me what I drove, I would tell them a "Z28." Then, when I got my SS and people asked me what I drove, I would say, "SS"....but then immediately have to clarify, "Camaro SS." Hrm...wonder why we'd have to go and do THAT now.... We know and love the Z28.

I think GM is really trying to pay special attention to the "greener" side of the Camaro and it's marketing. I think introducing another hi-po street race machine right now is not the image that GM is trying to portray. I think they want to focus on the V6 and get it out the door ASAP. I think they want all of us to are planning on buying a top of the line version to get into an SS and be happy. The problem is, I believe GM WILL be coming out with the Z28 after all is finalized with the V6 and they are up and running on the assembly line.

You know...let's get the V6'ers done. Let's get the V8 SS's done. Now that those are on the lines, let's get back to the vert and Z28. That way, designers can team up and focus their attention on two projects instead of four. I dunno...that's just what makes sense to me. My idea??? The Z28 will be coming out when the vert does. It'll be a long way off. But, I think GM would be wise to say something about a Z28's pricing and release time so those planning on buying won't get into an SS and then be highly pissed off down the road that they could have had a Z28 when they already bought an SS.

We gotta keep the masses that will be spending $40k and up happy, right? Just something to think about.

I'm not trying to brown nose but you consistantly post comments that just plain make sense. Great post, on all points.

I don't like those black inserts. We're not driving a GT-R.

Does the GT-R have those? I don't remember...

Yeah, I kinda agree and I kinda don't. IF this is the only way than can differentiate between the models than I'm down, but yeah, this would not be my first choice.

Same here! I think most of us Zee guys are willing to see just about anything and the nice thing about this car is that they could simply offer the LS3 package with this front facia, hood, "Z/28 only" rims, and maybe a stiffer suspension. Get rid of the foglights, funky dash lights, side airbags, RS package and other add-ons and wrap it all up in "Heritage based" colors with Z/28 stripes as shown above. Offer bigger rear gear ratios (and yes we'll pay for the extra gas guzzler tax).

There you go - not what you had planned GM but something at least for now until the bean counters loosen the purse strings. I don't know any Z/28 enthusiast on this board who would rather have nothing over the package presented above.

And keep the space behind those corner ducts in the facia clear so we can build functional front brake cooling out of them!
