I see there being a Z28 available in spring 2013

Convertible Spring 2011
ZL1 Spring 2012
Z28 Spring 2013

Stick more special editions like the Synergy Series and XM etc in between and you keep the media buzzing and the public interested

I expect pricing will be between the SS and ZL1 that way well equiped models will be nicely spaced

V6 - Mid $20ks
SS - Mid $30ks
Z28 - Mid 40ks
ZL1 - Mid 50ks

just wait and see. they will probably bring out the Z28 when they redesign to the smaller platform. giving them the oppurtunity to shed weight and compete with the boss 302.. i dont know if thats 2015??? or sooner, but by then they might be too late....just chiming in

You may very well be right. At some point though, there will be a Z28. Although with the Boss 302 back that would be quite awhile to wait for the Z. I tend to think it will be sooner than later.

yes but like GM they may be, stalling....if they were going to bring it out, wouldnt they have wanted to bring it out the same time as the boss??? bring out the ZL1 to compete iwith the GT500, seems to be a smaller market than what the boss 302 market would be. to bring the weight down now they would have to have extensive carbon fibre bits, and that would drive the cost too high. so my thinking is they are waiting to trim weight via remodelling. but who knows....just my thinking, and who am i??? just a thrilled SS owner...

I agree with both of you, and even though GM is the leader of being behind the leaders (sorry but history confirms the fact), I think it will arrive in time to go head to head with the Boss 302, which is in it's final testing stages.

I believe now that the ZL1 announcement is done, and that vehicle to go on sale real soon, the Z28 will follow close behind, for those who want something a little different.
I think the release of the Transformers 3 movie this July 1st, "may" play a role, but that's just speculation, because the ZL1 will have exhausted it's hype by then.

I, like the rest of you, am just providing my thoughts, be it right or wrong, it's a lot of fun hoping.

ISN'T THAT RIGHT, THOSE OF YOU IN THE GM TOWERS?

I'm waiting on the Alpha platform no matter what they release, but I expect we'll definitely see a Z28 on the Alpha whether we see one or not before then.

By the time Alpha comes out, I'll probably want a CTS anyway, LOL.

I thought that too. When my mother passed away, I was given her Eldorado. I really liked it. I thought, I should get a new one and trade my 97Z28(30th anniversary package) in on it. Biggest mistake of my life. Although the Eldorado was loaded and had lots of power, man it was just not me. I missed my Camaro so bad. Bad thing was there were no new Camaros to trade in for until the 5th gen. I went through 2 GTO's 04 and 06 and an 09 Solstice to try and get that feeling back. Never happened until the 5th gen came out. I'm never doing that again. I have the car I have always wanted finally. Now this may not be you at all, but just something to think about.

The ZL1 was available a long time ago. I purchased my SS in May 2010 and there were materials at the dealership to have work done to your vehicle to have it a ZL1 vehicle. Nothing has changed just more hype. I guess GM partnering with SLP on the ZL1 while they take another decade to come back with the Z28.

The ZL1 is not a GM product it's an SLP offering to mod your Camaro.

I think the Z28 will end up being an appearence package for the 2SS current trim. Maybe GM GFX will be standard and different wheels, stuff like that.
