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.

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.

I'm going to wait till then. I'll be able to save up more money by then and get the car I really wanted and a full warrenty as well. I can't say enough to the Chevy team about making these camaro's (all styles) with the quality and passion being shown. As hard as it's going to be to wait, i would rather it take longer and have a well made car then a poorly concieved vehicle that was rushed into production.
I'm hoping that we can see some upgrades for the people that can afford it. I know the majority of the people on the boards here would like a Z for under 50k, but personally I would like a range between 50k and 60k. This could be my last real car and my wife said to me after riding honda accords for 15 years and raising two kids through college go for it!
I already told my chevy dealer last week to put me down for one LOL, he said hugh?
There making a newer version camaro soon, I said yup.

Last real car was a grand national so I'm ready.
I need to be patient now!

PS: My wife thinks your all obsessed and nuts but, she said it with a smile on her face. She's a keeper
Me thinks you're correct

I think Mickey Thompson has some Baja Claws that might work I don't know that there's enough room between the outside of the strut and inside of the quarter panel. Without tubbing, and maybe even revising the strut mount area, I'm not sure it's going to fit and have the clearance they'd require. I'm just guessing though.

Becky works for one of the best dealers in the country everybody. Every time I go into see her, she is on Camaro5. She is a Camaro fanatic just as we all are. You just don't see that kind of passion out of your typical dealer personnel. If you ever have the opportunity to buy a new Camaro, especially the new Z-28, or any Chevy product for that matter, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do yourself a favor and give her an opportunity to provide you with the best new car purchase experience of your life. 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!!!

It is, the question is does that codename = Z/28? I'm starting to think not.

She is in the back of one of those Suburban's after telling everyone that the Z28 was discussed at the dealer meeting. Say Hi to Shunt, Becky.

Sweet. It's going to be a wicked car.

But you should get that for around 50k.

I'd probably get a year old z06 for that kind of coin.

If you could make a 330 fit with something as simple as changing the offset Tony would have already been selling those wheels by the pallet. You are limited in the offset by the depth of the axle in relation to the inside of the quarter panel. To mount a 330 you need a rim that is 12" or 13" wide which means if you kept the offset correct and the tire inside the wheel well you would basically put the inside edge of the tire right up against the inside of the wheel well at rest meaning any vertical movement in the suspension would cause the tire to rub, and forget about lowering the car. If you see 315's mounted they do fit but it is an extremely tight fit. Change the offset any more to allow for a wider tire and the tire would be sitting outside the wheel well.

I wonder how much my SS will be worth by then.
I'm guessing I'll have about 16K on the odo.

Honestly [and perhaps I'm being biased] the MS on the Z06 (with Z07 package) and ZR1 is more effective/superior than the one in Ferrari, due to it's nature to put TQ down to ground. MS comes in very handy at launch time, like GT-R MS. I took a ride in the new Z06/7 and it's take off is more productive than without the MS. This alone will kill the GT500 in the race with the new Z28.

Ah, the only thing this car misses, is a true forged piston and rods. That's where I envy GT500. BTW, GT500 for MY2013 (production in 2012) will get the TVS2300 @ 600HP.
