Hopefully it's not named something annoyingly long, like High Performance Edition or anything absurd. Z-28 is much simpler and allows people people to relate their future car to a name they revered as kids. The American muscle car enthusiast likes simple things a majority of the time; high displacement, high horsepower, torque on demand, and a car they can mod if they choose. It sounds like a long list but it really isn't if you're talking about a 50K+ pricepoint. That's why the vette is so well respected...even on the import scene. JMVHO

I think Scott might be toying with us
But if they do name it differently, I trust they will choose the name wisely.

I was wondering the same, but if you look at the tires on the Z28 Prototype they look massive. Check out the second pic down.

If it's not called the z/28, I am expecting the Z/28 to come out as a different car....

I guess the hope of a Z/28 is still on hold. Wonder what the HP Edition will be called, Z71? HA HAA

could the 330 tire fit if they changed the offset of the rear wheel? Also does anyone know if they make a 330 snow tire?

For the price of a 330 snow tire, if they even exist, you could buy a winter beater. I'd guess those things would be crazy expensive.

HP Edition? Weird. Hope that's a codename.
