Arrow Report: 2012 Camaro Z28 To Debut at 2011 NAIAS in Detroit (NOW DEBUNKED by fbodfather

Featured on Homepage:
Quote:
Fast Lane Daily is reporting that the the 2012 Camaro Z28 will debut at the 2011 North American International Auto Show at Detroit in January. If the 2012 Z28 is scheduled to be released in the summer of 2011 as speculated, the NAIAS in January 2011 could certainly make sense as the venue at which to debut the hi-po top of the line Camaro model. We’ll see in just a few months!
I just found out today that GM are going to release the official details on the new Z/28 at the Detroit Auto Show in January! I was watching Fast Lane Daily and they confirmed this. Looks like we have to wait till after Christmas! Heres the video...

If the Z28 is going to be released in the summer of 2011 as a 2012 model, then the Detroit Auto Show would be the place to show off the pre-production car. I do not however expect them to have pricing and ordering information available at the Detroit Show. Specifics with pricing and options will not come out until the Z28 is very close to be being produced which at the earliest would be the summer of 2011 or towards the end of 2011. However, if Chevy proves me wrong and makes it available sooner than my prediction, then I get my Z28 sooner than I thought. It is still a win-win for me.

I believe there's going to be a special 40th edition; not before I can't prove it though... Just a hunch.

Has the convertible been to NAIAS yet? That car exists and I don't think it's been shown yet.

Please, GM, don't make us wait another 14 months for an official announcement, lol. I'm getting a rash from waiting

I believe the convertible is being unveiled officially sometime before the end of the year.

I think GM will try to space the annoucements out a little more - '11 for the 'vert and '12 for Zed

So since we haven't heard anything....

Did that new and refreshed interior idea get scrapped? I believe that was planned for 2012 if I'm not mistaken. Not bashing the interior, just remember hearing about it.

This is great news though. I can't wait to see what the Z28 will bring to the table.

What I'm looking forward to is the lap times of the "Z". Might fly down to Detroit for the auto show just to see this MONSTER.

Actually it would be 45th edition. I'm so excited thou, I LOVE the Z28's. My mom had an 80 Z with a 4 speed 350 with a hurst transmission, custom Carnival Pearl white paint and red 80 z stripes. I hope Chevy will do something like that again.
