With a cost of around 2.5 million dollars for 30 seconds during the Super Bowl, I can guarantee that GM will not spend it on the Z28. They have a lot more time and money spent on global cars and any ads will go towards re-cooping those costs first. GM knows that they will get a ton of free advertising by just posting a picture on the internet, they will not have to worry about promoting the Z28, it will sell itself. Official debuts will most likely not occur before next summer when T3 breaks into the movie market.

I agree with everything....except the last bit. I believe the Z will be a full 2012 MY vehicle (just a feeling)...which means they'll have to talk/reveal/etc it before April when ordering begins.

Clouded your thoughts are... missing the big picture young patowans.

The Z28 will sell itself but the Z28 in the big ad will definitely be a HUGE positive force for GM. They can put a lil of the volt, corvette, cruze, etc. and finish it with a good 5 seconds of Z28 Mayhemmm !!

You won't remember what beer you were drinking....

GM has accomplished a masterful job of coaxing an entire generation back to the Camaro. There are kids in jr. high and high schools around the world dreaming of owning a Camaro. I cannot even take my Camaro near the local high school because of the reaction...............Have no fear the Z28 will do the job!

Hmm... I think they should definately buy some spots and feature a lot of the current line-up, then give us a little something to think about with Z28, just like I believe you're suggesting

My money is on the New York Auto Show in April for the official Z28 debut. The T3 commercials should start around the same time if the movie releases in June.

I want a Chicago debut in the worst ways for obvious reasons, but I have to admit all signs and logic point to a NY debut.
