I'll have the 2010 paid off in 2013, just it time (hopefully) for the Alpha platform Z/28. But, I know that'll leave a bunch of people pissed.
I can live with that concept. After all... The original RPO Z28 was Special Performance Package. Perhaps, GM can make a new Special Performance Package on the Alpha platform with Corvette C7 engine in three years time. That would be cool... and it would be "Special" indeed.

HP Edition... just doesn't sound as impressive. I don't see anything "special" if it is just High Performance. We can call HP Edition... Z/27.

btw: Does any one know why there is a "/" between Z and 28?

Z27 was the SS RPO

I'm surprised at the number of people who would NOT buy if it wasn't called a Z28. Seriously, GM is about to give us a hoss of a perfomance machine and some of you guys are whining about the name. We not talking about performance we talkin about the name, not horse power but the name. Not about torque or handling but the name. Is the name that important?

It would seem so.

I was thinking why does it even have to have a name? It could be a trim level (3SS) let's say exept it can be the only trim level with magnetic ride suspension and the standard engine(LSA, LS9) only available in that trim level. Or just make it a SS-V since more than half of the damn car will be shared with the CTS-V?

That sounds possible.

One thing for sure... We got a bunch of passionate Camaro followers on the site. At the end of the day... I think GM can count on the forum members to buy a car from them. Camaro is one success story of the great "GM Revival" history for sure.

Abstaining from voting, because I wouldn't be able to afford it no matter what its called. Hell, I can't even afford an LS.

However, I don't care what GM names it as long as it kicks some snake arse.

What about naming it I.R.O.C. like the 3rd gen. I'm just joking it wouldn't work but it is a good name.

With the Boss 302 being out, at this point I feel it would be best to give it a different name. As long as we are on this second coming of the muscle car era lets keep the names as they belong. The Big block cars of the 60's were SS cars. COPO or the ZL1, but unless they put a 427 in it, ZL1 is not the right choice. So my vote is to make it a SS package or a top of the line SS Supercharged. Then develop the light weight road race car that should have the Z/28 badge on it. Put the LS3 out of the Grand Sport in it. Forged internals and a dry sump. (6 speed cars only)

1) At this point I would put money on the fact that it won't be named the Z/28.

2) Anyone who voted that they wouldn't buy it if it wasn't named Z/28 wasn't buying the car either way.
