Nice find and very interesting. It would be nice to see a Z-28, but I wouldn't hold my breath either. I think it will come to be, but when is anyones guess IMO. Thanks for the post.

Thumbs up WOW Z/28

Now that would be a beast of a Camaro. If they get the ball rolling on that, it would be bad to the

So basically if you look at the concept pictures the new BumbleBee is a Z28. Look at them closely.

Wow! - Now that's the car I want.
No, strike that. That's the car I need!
If it was available as a pre-order only, (built only after purchase was made), I would still get it.

i thnk it wld be 2 expensive...
with all those mods and a blower it wld come with a pretty price tag.

wasnt the SS car always the top preformance one and the Z28 followed?
so it wld b backwards?

Unfortunately I dont see it happening the way they're talking about GM filing for Chapter 11 now.........although they ARE going ahead with the ZR1. All this GM sinking news had me looking at the new 2010 GT500....but if they actually made this thing........................

Seeing how a loaded 2SS/RS is about $38k,

Description Code Price
Camaro 2SS 1ET37 $34,180.00
Tremec TR6060 6-speed Manual Transmission MN6 $0.00
Black GBA $0.00
RS Package for SS WRS $1,200.00
20-inch Polished Aluminum Wheel Q9J $470.00
Black Leather SS Interior AFM $0.00
No Stripes --- $0.00
Power Sunroof with express open and venting CF5 $900.00
Vehicle Subtotal $36,750.00
Sales Tax (6.25%) $2,296.88
Total $39,046.88

I would expect this car, especially in limited production, to be priced in the high $50k to mid $60k. The base MSRP on the Caddy CTS-V is $63k.

Anyone considering installing the supercharger from the CTS-V (or something similar) on the SS? It will be a lot cheaper than a Z/28 if they ever come out. But Damn, that is a good looking car!

However you have your SS optioned out, I'd say add a good 12k to 17k on top of that for the price of a Z-28. If this car did come out, it would not be meant as a high volume car......kinda like the Cadi V's....how many are going to pay 50k plus for a Camaro?

Base CTS is more like $58k http://www.automotive.com/2009/12/ca...ing/index.html Unless you're including tax and what not, which is usually not included when you reference the "MSRP". This is why I think the MSRP of the z/28 could be under $50k. That is, if they ever build it.

And yes, lots of people are considering TVS and MagnaCharger superchargers for the LS3.

It would be nice to have a Z/28 but I know my limits! The SS will be more than enough to get me in lots of trouble. I won't cry if it doesn't happen but my gut tells me there will be Z/28's on the street eventually.

Well that does explain Bumblebee. Still don't like that hood on it. Lower front bumber looks nice with it being the same color instead of the black (BB).

Always take what you read in the car mags. with a "grain of salt".

I'll wait to hear it from GM. There are alot of "hurdles" GM has to clear before the possibility of a Z.

IMO, The Z-28 will make an appearance in the 2012 year if........ 1. The 2010 Camaro and 2011 Camaros are a hit and 2. Federal "Green regs" will not penalize GM for out a "gas-guzzler."
