Blogpost from my dealership. The Return of the Z28?

I was sent a link to this today on facebook by Jack Maxton, the dealer that I bought my Camaro from. They have their own wordpress blog and twitter account. It looks legit except they used the name IROC-Z28 in the final few sentences. Seeing how IROC no longer exists and that its assets were liquidated I doubt GM got the rights to use the IROC name.

Over a year ago, the completed blue prints for the new Chevy Camaro were put on hold indefinitely. The Camaro Z-28, although ready to be brought to life, had to remain on the two- dimensional paper it was drawn on because the economy lacked the ability to sustain its re-birth.

As a glimpse of economic recovery showed itself this summer, GM Executives gave the go ahead in June, to start building the 2012 Z-28.

The new Camaro is going to rock the socks off your feet!! The reincarnation of the Z-28 is something of a superior beast . The exterior design of the new Z-28 is going to be much more aggressive looking with 20″ wheels, larger air intakes, front splitter and rear spoiler designed to scream “I’M BADDDD!”.

Under the hood will rest a 6.2 Liter Super Charged LSA V8 with 556 horses and 551 pounds of torque per foot. With a take off speed of 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds, and a top speed of 193 mph, this car will be sure to please.

The cost on the new Z-28 will not stray too far from the current Camaro prices. An estimated $8,000 more on the sticker tag, will get you that V8 super beast. Not a bad deal really. GM said they wanted to make the Camaro Z-28 still affordable for the average person, unlike the Corvette whose target audience is slightly more affluent.

The new IROC-Z28 is going to be in big demand when it comes off the assembly line, as Camaro owners everywhere anticipate its arrival. Hopefully, some time next year, you can be the proud owner of on

no IROC... aint gonna happen


something to think about is that the Camaro V6 carried the same hp rating as the Caddy variant until someone challenged the horsepower numbers with something higher... expect GM to do the same with the Z28, since 556hp is 6hp higher than the rating on the GT500 and the new 392Hemi engine is rated at 475hp

my guess is the Z28 will have 580hp when its tested with the correct exhaust

You should expect it to look similar the t3 movie bumble bee in front. You can make out some of the same features of the front bumper under those covers. I'd say that rendering above is very close.

$33K for a Camaro SS (1SS). That's an "average guy" price for a car. Not everyone can walk into a Ford dealership and buy a new GT500 Cobra. The same can be said for the new Z28. But I get the point.

In my area you can buy a new Vette coupe for high $40K if you shop around. So the guys buying Z28s could easily buy a Vette if they wanted one.

It kinda sounds like they're trying to piggy-back off of all the recent "Z28-approved" blogs and spy-shots lately.

Only....they've botched it up a little.
