I really could not have said it any better. Although I have a preference and a wish that it should be called Z28, it will not deter my buying the car. It will have every performance feature I could have hoped for and then some. So it does not matter if they call it Mustang Mauler or Challenger Crusher this Camaro will be the most powerful Camaro ever built by Chevrolet and sold to the general public. Maybe having having it's own unique nameplate has some merit. The one name that I know for sure that it is going to have is - MINE.

Anything but IROC, please. That makes me think of mullets, cheap beer, and glam metal = not cool. Then again, I'd still buy it! Not sure if anyone else suggested this, but what about Z/HP? I think that could sound right

In any case, I have bonded with my SS and will not sell it off just to jump into a Z28 / HP edition. I will continue to slowly make it more and more my own. I bought a 2010 SS because it is the return of the Camaro. This car and I will be together for a long time. I will be happy to see a Z28 on the road again and know that more money can always mean more speed, but my SS is mine.

This says it best.

But just to add my two cents too. It is now or never for a Z/28. Chevrolet has created Gen.5 Camaros the way it should be done, slow and careful with alot of thoughts and decision making. Thank goodness that Chevy did not do like Ford does EVERY year with the Mustang...coming up with a new Shelby this, Cobra that, 500Kr this, Super Snake that, GT/CS this, 5.0 that....and on and on. There are soooo many monikers for the Stang, that it becomes not really special at all....just another dang stang.

So here is GM's BIG chance to top off what they started with the newest (and long awaited I might add) 5th Gen. Camaro. Any car maker can put HP behind their name, but no one but Chevy can call it a Z/28. Don't blow it now.

Honestly I hope GM doesnt do this, Horespower Edition or Supercharged Edition is stupid.
im pretty sure theyll be naming it the Z28, but if not, well then I wouldnt know what to say, other then Ford got their act together
I hope they keep the name Z28 on the front and rear and keep su[ercharged on the side or on the cowl

I have waited three years for this... If all I need was High Performance... I would have gone with Callaway, SLP... and others. After all, I can customize the tuner car to my liking prior to me taking it home.

The whole point of waiting ... is to have a "factory nameplate -- Z28".

Dear GM... please don't screw this iconic name up.

Z28

Remember in Canada it's ZED 28
in the US it's ZEE 28

I happen to like ZED 28 though

I guess we'll just have to wait & see

I know I'm breaking with tradition here, but I really do not care what they call it. The rebirth of the Chevrolet Camaro has been a smashing success. The Camaro brand is as strong as ever. I could see GM developing some other, maybe new, brand with this new High HP model. The car makes the brand name. The brand name has NEVER made the car. We have witnessed this throughout history with car companies applying iconic brand names to sub-par automobiles in the late 70's, 80's and 90's. I think this High HP version of the Camaro is going to be awesome, and I am sure the product team will get the brand right. The car will make whatever they brand it as iconic. I can't wait for it to get here!!!

You could call it 5.5th Generation Camaro with supercharger for all I care. As long as they build it and don't call it Mustang, I will most likely buy one.

Let's be realistic here, the people that have the money to afford this and are interested in it are going to buy it no matter what it is named. (within reason, I don't mean "Fartmobile")
The rest are just window shoppers.

Do I think Z/28 or COPO would be sweet? Yes. But in reality I could handle HP Edition, even if it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue

It should be z28 but I'd still be interested. It'd be a shame it wasn't though.

I would be really disappointed if they didn't call it Z28. However, as long as it tops the Mustank I am okay by that. I do believe that GM is trying to play us because we know more information than what they would probably like. So they are trying to throw us off guard. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Z28 will be the name.

I think GM really needs to be careful here and listen to a lot of these posts. People are expecting a Z28 and if it is not and named something that has NO heritage, it will hurt sales pure and simple.

IMO the name doesn't really matter.

All that matter IMO is the LSA under the hood

For people that don't know the heritage of the Z28 or don't care then I would tend to agree. However, I believe this is a minority opinion.
