That's a hot car right there...

...and definitely what I saw a couple weeks ago at the tech center.

I almost bet that it was going to be called Z/28, but when the Boss 302 was announced Chevy had to kind of follow the same lines and call this beast the ZL1 like the first gen cars. Like everyone is saying though, that just means that the Z28 will be out to compete with the Boss.

Not as much as I am referring to Ford and Dodge showing us things that we can actually BUY. Look at the Dodge Challenger 392...they were in the dealerships or orderable while the car was in the magazines. If GM is going to show us the ZL-1, tell us how great it is, then tell us we can buy it NEXT YEAR or so...I am going to be pissed.

GM had a great marketing team back in the 50's and 60's...the entire country would literally shut down and watch a t.v. show or line up outside of dealers awaiting the covers to be removed from the NEW cars in the showroom...then the dealer would sit down with you and write up the order...a few weeks later, the car was IN YOUR HANDS. Now? YEARS. The ZL1 has 100,000 miles on the Nurburgring by now...it is tested hard...the platform is DONE...the Engine has been tested ad naseum...also the mag ride...GIVE US THE DAMNED THING ALREADY!

Looks great by the way!


And Motor Trend, Car and Driver, et al....we know.. you hate the view out of the car and you find the A-pillar obtrusive, the interior sub par to the $1,000,000 Bugatti you tested yesterday, and the on star mirror a joke...beyond that...how does it DRIVE?

Looks great, and I'm glad they're calling it ZL1.

Can't help but laugh at the posts in here about "ZL1 having no history" Wow guys, go read a book...

For all of you wondering how GM is gonna resolve the ZL1 name and SLP, don't you think that has already been taken care of? Seriously, why would they bring this car out if things were not settled about that. You heard it here. IT'S A NON FACTOR!!!!!

Oh yeah, GM is the leader in teasing us with concepts and then never making a production piece.

If it IS indeed a 2012 ZL1, shouldn't that mean a on-the-dealer-court around September? I'm not all that familiar with the way it's done out there (it's not like that here) but I'm pretty sure that's how GM plays it.

So, what, 6 months? Time to get orders in an begin production I would say.

Just FYI, how I assumed it was going to be badged ZL1 was after viewing the GMMG website and seeing the 2002 ZL1's and how FBODFATHER had described the vehicle and Becky @ Rodgers Chevrolet initial press release here on Camaro5, was a perfect match to the moniker to be used


and now

BECKY @ RODGERS CHEVROLET , put me on the list as I want one , possibly two, since my son 16th birthday is Jan 15th

Correct, it was never a model, it was an engine. Which somewhat makes even less sense. It was the fastest Camaro ever, but this new one might be even faster than the original.

I think and hope GM intends on fighting the Mustang model for model, and Z28 will return to give the Boss something to think about.

Maybe we only saw half of the slide presentation...........what if Chevrolet introduces both the ZL1 and a Z28, in a stroke of genius?
