Z28 For 2011?

I went to the Providence Auto Show Yesterday & the GM product specialist
said there was a Z28 coming out for 2011. can anyone confirm or elaborate.

By the way they had a ZR1 in CGM & I am changing my order. I had ordered a 2SS/RS BLK M6. I have owned several black vehicles & love
black, but after seeing the black camaro under the metal halide lights of the show with all the "swirls" sitting right next to the vet with the CGM. DONE!

There is no confirmation of a Z28. There is no evidence that GM is working on a Z28 right now.

That "GM Product specialist" has no idea what he or she is talking about...

Until GM can earn some extra money to fund a program like the Z28, don't expect to see one for a few years.

Please for the love of God, stop posting crap about the z-28.....


GM cant even make up their mind on when they can start production on the Camaro, let alone when/if they are making a z-28, IROC, etc.

Cut the OP a little slack. When a product specialist at an autoshow representing GM directly makes mention of a Z28, that carries some weight. It certainly means more than something your dealer might say (thread-jacking side rant, not related to anything mentioned on this thread: I'm really getting tired of people referring to dealerships as though they were part of GM and employees at dealerships as though they were GM employees. They are not. Dealerships are independent companies that have a franchise agreement with GM. /rant). I know we're all tired of theories and arguments about the Z28, but I think all signs make it a matter of "when" and "in what form" rather than "if". I don't think what the product specialist said means anything (probably misspoke or went off rumors or unauthorized information) but it is worth mentioning.

All manufacturers of cars, boats, bikes, sleds, computers, etc hold something back for later. This is a fact of life. If this is a big deal, sit on the bench & watch. I prefer to play now & pay again later to trade up to the then , latest & greatest.

The Camaro is a great value...be happy with what you are getting this year, whether it is a month late or not. Technically 2010s normally wouldn't come out until fall anyway!

I wouldn't be suprised to see an LS7 Z28 Camaro a couple years from now.

But for now, I just want to see the SS's arrive.

if i remember correctly, GM is dropping the LS7 in the near future, so i doubt we'll see that in a factory car.

i'm really tired of hearing all this Z28 business... GM is gonna get back on their feet before spending more money developing a kill-all car. this is a brand-new vehicle from the ground up, so it's gonna take some time to get all the kinks worked out as is, so they're gonna work on that first, as well. when the economy turns back around, and there's more of a market for a car like that, they'll probably jump right in (assuming their finances are back in order). unti then, can we just let this go...PLEASE?

Just because we havent heard it Through Scott, or CamaroScott, doesnt mean that there is no plans. Im sure the product specialist would know, i hate how everyone just jumps at people when they hear something new. The Z28 is a possiblitiy, especially if there is a product specialist saying that there is one. Its not like he said as a 2010 model, in 2011 makes it a 2011 model or 2012 model, there is a possibility. Please stop jumping at people and burning people's sources all the time. I have had my source burned just for talking about the delay, which is really sad becausee i have the email dating back to Dec 18th with the delay of production to March 16. There are other people out there who are credible sources

i wasn't tryin to burn that person's source & sayin they're wrong. i just meant that with GM's current state, we need to focus on the car we know exists & is being released. GM ain't officially said there's a Z28 & they've never officially said it's dead. all i meant was that in a time where GM could use every dollar they have right now, it wouldn't be wise to invest in a car the market can't currently support, and they know that. i'm suggesting we focus on the cars available & support them instead. if the camaro is a need, buy the SS & be happy. if it's purely a want & you can stick it out a little longer, more power to ya, but it ain't productive to keep stirring the pile.

Wow. Take a chill pill.

Now that we're calm - there is no official information regarding the Z28.

As for the price of the ZR1, you could say it is comfortably higher than that of a mcdonalds double cheeseburger.

Hey Zebra, i didnt direct at you, in fact not at all so sorry if i offended you in any way, i know exactly what you mean and i agree with you 100 percent. Its just that lately, everyone has been jumping out at peoples sources and in some cases we could have all had information earlier if people just accepted it. maybe in a couple of monthes or a year, or longer that there will be a Z28 hitting the streets in 2011. Even though im not getting one, i would be happy for eveyone who gets one and i would be excited to see it tear up all the competition, but for now im just happy we are all getting our Camaros.
