She has bent over backwards for myself and I am confident that she would do the same for anybody else. Especially our Camaro5 family. Thanks for the Z-28 info Becky!!!
Ditto!

Thanks for the info!

OOOOooooo... I forgot about that! That little honey was forged, though, yes?... I'd totally bedown for that though!

Kinda like the Z51 Corvette was just an internal code as well.

GS Corvette is now Z52
ZXX?

I was under the impression that a vehicle produced in CY12 would be considered a MY13. If GM produces the Z28/HPE on the 1st of Janurary, 2012, it will roll off the line the same time as the 2013 Cobra. I have a feeling that it will be released as a 2013 Z28/HPE.

I would rather see the Z51 option over the MRC F55s, maybe they will reserve the Z51s for the real Z28. According to the ZO6 crowd, the MRC F55s actually over heat over extended road course duty. the F55s are also expensive and quite a heavy option vs. the Z51s.

with the 285/330 combo, the 12 inch wheel plus the 330 rubber would weigh close to 90lbs per wheel, thats almost 30lbs more over stock rears alone.

It wouldn't surprise me to see the convertible chassis strenghing techniques applied to this monster. From what I hear, the convertible's chassis treatment was spot on.

Either way, 2012 will be a big year for both... Ford will no doubt go all in with the SVT Cobra being its their 20th Anniversary and the last MY for the tired body style. Also, a good reason for GM to hold off on the HPE till 1 Jan, see if Ford will jump first.. details for the updated SE should be out around October/Novemeber 2011.

Hmmmmmmmmm.....

Could it be that the SSX was the HP in cloak and dagger format at SEMA?

..........so anyone thinking that there will be a high performance V8 for a very inexpensive price - is going to be disappointed.
I'm confused as to how this is relevant for the current model (to be)? Or are you talking future iterations of v8 performance cars?

There's no way this car is going to have 330 tires. No one even offers a 330 tire. I'm guessing it will be a 315 since it will have an 11 inch wide wheel.

Are we sure they are going to start production on a Sunday too?

When Scott say's it's true, then I'll believe it.

Until then, speculation.

I definately would have to see this car in its final production glory. Owning the "HP", I don't know if i'd be completely happy with it. I just don't want them releasing the Z/28 later on if it ends up happening after I already purchased the "HP Edition" Camaro.

Nope. I agree. I ordered '10 early, and if this car was going to be a Z28, I would be the first one lined up for it. If they call it the HP Edition, I'll skip it. Simple as that. Maybe its stupid to some people, but I'm out if they call it that. Hopefully we'll see a Z28 at some point. If not, the '10 and IROC will have to make due with each other.

Everyone needs to calm down on the "HP Edition" moniker. This info was from the national dealer meeting and GM obviously doesn't want to let the name of this car out of the bag yet. This is obviously just a term they are using the describe the car at this time. The High Performance Edition. Do you really think that they would officially call it the "HP Edition"? Come on.

I believe it is just an FYI to those who are uneasy about paying $50+ for a V8 now. Eventually, I see V8s being dropped as a standard model and offered as an option just so GM/Ford can exploit a CAFE loop hole. Eliminating V8s from the standard line up could exclude them from the CAFE average...

One day, we may all wake up in a Madd Maxx type setting, safeguarding the last V8.. wondering "If there is only one V8 left in the world, what ruined the environment and economy?"

Magnetic ride control is HUGE.

The model name affixed to the fender is not.

But please, Fbodfather, beg the powers-that-be to make a convertible version! GM would sell every one they could make and a HP convertible would be an instant classic.
