You might keep up on a straightaway or drag strip, but not so much on any street or roadcourse that has turns...unless you put a lot of money into aftermarket suspension stuff, and by that time you will have already paid for a new Z/28 (but you won't have the spankin' new warranty to go with it). No disrespect meant by the way.

Do you guys honestly think that GM isn't going to heavily revise/upgrade the suspension components as well...you know, to actually take advantage of the additional horsepower?

but are they there just for the time being that the cover is on?? Or maybe reduced when the cover is off?

Can anyone tell by looking at the pulleys how much boost they are running on this "LSA" configuration?

Won't mean much to me without a motor that can take upgrades to push / hold 700+HP like the LS9. As I previously stated I'd sooner spend the same amount in over all cost on building up a 2010 2SS/RS with superior forged internals for more power and longevity as well as mod my suspension than buy a way marked up Z28 (warranty or not) with a couple cosmetic differences and a weaker engine. If the Z28 comes out with a nonforged bottom end LSA, I will not be interested. At that point, a used 2010 with mods is a viable option imho.

The dealer markup will be insane for the first 6-9 months.

Praying for a fully forged bottom end and small supercharger. Very satisfied with 475 to 500 hp. I know GM will do the right thing. For the folks who mentioned the LS8, that motor makes perfect sense. Read the article in Left Lane News....pretty interesting to say the least.

They need to make it hardcore enough so the hardcore guys will go for it, and make it honestly better than a Corvette Coupe(at least in my opinion) but less than the Grand Sport.

There's a lot of marketing that has to go behind this because if they eff it up they will kill sales of another car.

I have to disagree with this because the new C7's are coming in 2013 and along with that ,Z06 and ZR1, so I wouldn't bet on that theory. Just my two cents.

z28 should be a 11 second car no doubt. A CTS-V like mine runs low 12s with probably 400 pounds of additional weight over the Z... 650hp will be no problem. i just added 100 more hp with just a pulley swap and exhaust change

the main reason I see to buy this is for the warranty. if you want to mod up a SS go for it you will likely get more power out of it but if you break it you will pay for it.... and while some of you maybe can afford to do that not everyone can.

Honestly, Im just as hype as everyone else, but It'll probably cost upper 40s to low 50s which is out of my ballpark. I will be satisfied with strapping a blower on top of my SS.

I still take my hat off to Chevy for giving the crowd what they want. The 2010 Camaro just released last year and people were already screaming for a Z28. A little over a year later they have the prototype Z28.

I think they deserve some sort of recognition for trying to give the people what they want!!

The same people that can't afford to mod an SS without worry will be unlikely candidates to own a $50k+ Z28.
Warranty has nothing to do with it, most of these cars will go to deep-pocket guys that just want to have a better car than most and much like a lot of the Z06's, ZR1's, and GT500's, I predict most Z28's will be garage queens.

I'm thinking this will be priced in the low $50's to mid $60's. Think about it, some 2SS's were costing low $40's when they first came out -- dealer markup and all.

What will be funny is if the Z28 is priced lower and performs better than some of the "limited edition" supercharged Camaro SS's that are way overpriced.

Can you tell by looking at the picture of the "LSA" engine pictured in the first post how much boost they are running with the pulley that they are using? Does it look to be the same size as the one that comes stock in the CTS-V?

about how Brenda Priddy gets her shots. You can see one of her foot long lenses in the second pic on the story.

Does anyone think they may go back to the red "performance" bowtie for the Z/28? Bumble Bee has one. Unless there is some change to the badging, I don't see the point in covering it up. My 5 year old would know that was a Camaro badging or no.
That was actually very enlightening, thank you

They probably just used a car that they already had, not a brand new one off the line. I attribute it to random chance more than anything.

Most of Priddy's stuff is like that, except for the shots of track testing and such. Its not leaked, but the engineers obviously allowed the pictures to be taken (or they should be fired for leaving the car unattended and letting some random person open up the hood).

Maybe GM pulled ABM so they could use it as a Z/28 exclusive color? So they limited the amount of ABM running around
Just speculation
