The car is confirmed, not the name. They got to call it something. The Z/28 name has always been a logical assumption for this vehicle.

Sorry "Z28 Confirmed" is inaccurate. It should say "A high performance model has been confirmed, name still to be confirmed"

Hate to tell you but the homepage isn't from GM. .. Hell they could put the moon is falling on the homepage. . doesn't mean it's true. . .


As Fbodfather said, no GM offical said it was a Z-28. It is all the fans that SPECULATE the car shown was a Z-28.

Like others siad, the HP will be an add on option to your SS car. . .Vert or coupe.

Seriously? Of course I know the homepage is not GM. I was stating that the "mods" should change the title as it is not correct.

I can see why Chevy might not want to use it. Some people feel the SS should be top dog and not the Z28, and the Z28 was originally a track package with a high revving motor. So I can understand them not wanting to just use it because they have it. I can see them using another name for now and then when the 6th gen Camaro comes around they can reset the order. LS->LT->Z28->SS->???

What ever they call it I'll still lust for it.

Come on now you just have to put a few things together to form what should be what the right thing is..its going to be called

IROC...why do I say this?

GM did this back in the 80's too..
Quote:
Don’t forget, though, IROC has been dead before, from 1981-1983. General Motors revived the series as a showcase for its newly redesigned Chevy Camaro.
Could that be it? Could GM be bringing back a showcase for this new car? Since IROC is now defunct and not anything but a memory. GM has the name now it has the car..it can resurrect the series to showcase this new car..


or could it be that knowing Red Pla....I mean FBodyfather..online for so long he has in the past posted the truth right in front of us and has proven it time and again that we were staring at it all along...I will leave it at that.

Although I doubt it, it would be cool to see IROC and the IROC Camaro back. It would really be cool to just see a racing series of Camaro, Mustang, Challenger, but using the cars as close to stock as possible.

This car is going to be named a different name than Z/28 regardless because the Z/28 should be the BOSS 302 killer. This new Camaro will take on the Shelby GT500 & needs a new nameplate to add to the Camaro history legacy. It's either their going to have to add a new nameplate or this could just be a new performance option for the SS but something tells me it will be a completely new car & nameplate. Either way I cant wait to see what they make of this GT500 destorying car. The SS should get more horsepower for the 2012 model though I believe.

It would be awesome to have the IROC Camaro series back again to watch on TV either major channels or SPEED TV I would love it. I never got to see much of the old 80's IROC Camaro series other than the commercials but I would love to see IROC Camaro brought back as a yearly race and then for them to have a similar IROC Camaro brought back into the showrooms that people could purchase as well as a high power Camaro. I know it probably will never happen again but I can always dream!

I think it should either be a Z28 or just an option on the SS. I'm having a tough time justifying why Z28 would not be used unless GM does not feel the car lives up to the name or is not different enough. If the car is little more than a few suspension tweaks and a SC, then just make it a package option and save Z28 to debut the alpha.

"SS Supercharged"?

but maybe the other hiding in plain sight is what were thinking..

This car will be too special to be named SS Supercharged or SS HP. This will be the all time top dog of Camaros and needs it's own brand if Z/28 isn't used.

This will truly be a special car in the long history of the Camaro brand, they will not shortchange it by just slapping on a supercharged badge IMO. I'm in agreement with Blue Maro Demon that it will have it's own new nameplate.

Z/28 = NOUN ; HPE = Adjective CASE CLOSED.

Z/28=NOUN

HPE, Supercharged XX, Whatever = ADJECTIVE.

Don't you agree CASE CLOSED?

Now, if they come up with a new NOUN to take the place of Z/28 like ZR1 took the title away from Z06, well then, I would not mind. Just don't give it some name that is an ADJECTIVE.

I'd buy it regardless. Just don't make it "Special Edition" HPE or otherwise.

Actually Camaro is the NOUN..Z28 is the adjective
"an adjective is a word whose main syntactic role is to modify a noun or pronoun"
Z28 is a modified Camaro.. Z28 is not a Z28 it is a Camaro.

My thoughts are that if they don't want to call it a Z/28, then they should have some other name other than HP Edition. Some other Z/ name would be appropriate ..

I don't believe though that a name would keep someone from buying the car.

I think initally there will be A LOT of people upset, however, if the car is made well and delivers on bad-assery() then all will be well in the end.

After some careful consideration.........It doesn't matter. Either way it will more than likely be priced out of my comfort zone. So call it what you like. It would be nice to see Z28 shine again but, if Chevrolet's marketing folks want to call it something else. Thats their call. Plus I have something special already.
