I would definitely get it no matter what it was called... but saying it's a Z28 sounds nicer to me

It shouldn't be called Z/28. If it came with coilovers, a smaller high output engine and a lighter curb weight, then it could be called Z/28. The last time the Z was the top car in the lineup is when they were going after the Trans Am racing series. Very limited production, limited options.

Is the new platform going to lighten up the curb weight very much? I can't imagine that it is going to save enough weight to make up for the 100+ pounds of SC over the front tires and the extra weight of the MRS. So the new "HP Edition" should be over 4000 pounds. Not exactally what I would consider Z/28 worthy.

The new SC powered beast needs a different moniker.

We live in very different times now. Somethings are just not feasable in today's world. A lightweight Z28 ain't gonna happen. Some will say then, well if that's the case then they should just not use the Z28 name. I don't know, they may be right.

I think this poll is funny. Not really expecting a whole lot of anti-Z28 answers. I voted Z-28. Should post this poll on a Mustang or Challenger website. Not!

Frud releases a limited number of both Boss and GT 500 cars. It wouldn't take much to lighten the car enough to keep it under 4k pounds. Hell, rip the back seat out, lighten the interior up with race inspired seats etc....

I dont see it happening, but either way the car is going to fly off the lot.

NO SIR. Z/28 is a NOUN assigned to the option package! It has become an identity in an of itself. And, it has become so on MERIT, not hyperbole.

Now, go back to your room! LOL.

Z28 all the way. The z28 name is a camaro. That name Z28 screams muscle. I hope they don't make the mistake of calling it something else. That would be sad. I own a 94 Z28 and it's the best name ever for a muscle car.

It will be called the ZR1 Camaro with the LS9 and Magnetic Ride Control suspension and will be priced exactly half way between the 2SS Camaro and the CTS-V Cadillac.

How did I do?

This is a new age for GM and a new chapter for the Camaro since it's cancellation back on 2002.

The 5th gen is the best representation of the 69 model in an advanced looking design. It makes sense to have a born again street and track dominator with an advanced and fresh name or moniker. It is after all, an American Revolution by Chevrolet, like their ads used to call.

I could see the true Z28 coming in the next lighter platform with a strong comeback in the muscle arena. I leave it at that.

I don't care if they call it fluffy as long as it's everything that we all hope it will be and more. I just hope I'm able and still on this earth when the time comes to drive one.

Guys, there's no way in hell GM will actually call it the "HP Edition." It's probably just insider code to keep the name under wraps until its official announcement. I'm sure the name will still be the Z/28, but since the car has been the worst kept secret at GM, it's no surprise they're still trying to keep as much under wraps as possible.

Personally, I think "ZL-1" would be a far better name choice. In 1969 that was the best you could get (if you were lucky enough, anyway). Besides, the ZL-1s were known for making around 550-hp on the dyno, so it would be a nice match with the new one.

That may be true but with SLP making a ZL-1 it would be hard for Chevrolet to do the same thing. I think this car should be a Z28 or nothing. JMHO
