Did anyone else notice the leaky clutch/brake fluid reservoir? Guess it's going to have the same clutch issues as the current SS . . .

I would say don't get your hopes up. These testers have been being used for a while (Chicklet, ABM)

wow thats an ugly engine cover, also looks like there is a diffrent type of intercoolers set up hopefully its caring the tvs 2300, seriously why in the hell would you buy a z/28 with a smaller blower, not liking the idea that the lsa does not come forged. all i can say GM is way behind ford in the forced induction sector.

Exactly, I doubt they pulled a brand new car off the line to hack together a test car. Its probably one of the old CTF cars or something they they had lying around and used them instead.

Digging the new Z. I can honestly say I would never really buy one new, but maybe a few years down the road I'll pick a nice used one up. I do like the hood and new front facial though... I wouldn't mind re-fitting a SS to look like it and drop a pair of turbos on it.

there are many people out there that think that (including me). but it's all speculation until we get the real specs.

I thought the LS8 was supposed to be for SUV's, presumably the Escalade. Meh, it doesn't matter now.

Or we can continue intelligently discussing what are allegedly spy pictures of the still rumored Z28 and use prior rumors to substantiate hopes on what lies down the road for said rumored car.

And yea, it was for some of the higher end SUV's but was supposed to also be for the higher end camaro. All before it was dropped.

Via older left lane news article, for what it's worth.

LS8

This is another 6.2-liter, smallblock V8 with a supercharger. It also features an intercooler integrated into the intake manifold. This will be the motor going into the top-end Zeta platform cars. The most premium Camaro, probably called Z28, will get this motor.

That said, original plans had this motor going into a Denali SUV or truck, however, those plans now seem to be canceled. Again, this maybe a result of CAFE.

Some of Holden's vehicles may also get this motor eventually. Initial specs have this motor at 475 to 500 horsepower with a choice of manual or automatic transmissions.

When the LS7 dies, the Z06 will get this motor. Possibly, slightly uptuned from the version the Zeta cars would get. This motor will start production in first or second quarter of 2010.
