You did miss something. the Zl1 you are referring to is the SLP ZL1, not the GM ZL1. You can see SLP's press release regarding the new Chevrolet ZL1 on SLP's website.

all i know is that GM has to step up there game, and make a camaro actually be able to handle a turn. the 5.0L can compete with M3 on the turns and in a straight line stock. and then they made the GT500 lighter, and now the BOSS. i no longer call mustangs muscle cars. they are sports cars. GM WHERE ARE YOU!

The only reason I'd buy a Z28 over a ZL1 would be if they put an LS7 in it and put it on a diet, but left the PTM, MSRC and the other handle great stop fast goodies. Other than that, I'll go with a ZL1. I don't want a track car.

Well, I really like what I saw in the SSX. If GM were to make the Z28 something along that line with a stroked and bored motor and if it was still cost effective for them to produce I would be all for it.

Is the Boss a model that is going to be part of the "regular" line up for Mustang fans or is it just a special order kind of car? I would think that I Ford decided to make it part of the regular line up that would make the possibility of a Z28 much more likely.

I would like a Z/28 with the LS7 motor. But with the LSX block & the LSX-DR heads. On a lighter platform, much lighter. I got shot down, when I said this the last time, by you guys. But Thats what I would want, If I had a choice. I maybe dreaming. But I am 60 years old and I would like one last Bad ASS car while I can still enjoy it. With that block & head combo. You could do your own performance up grades to it. Turbos, supercharger, or NOS ETC!!!.

Of Course!! The Z/28 is not just a name plate for me!! Although I know that GM is not Burger King, but this would be my set up: High Rev 5.3L with better high flow heads, "hot cam", a better intake maybe from the LS3, factory shorty headers, high flow midpipes (Looking for 450HP), lighter rotating mass (wheels and tires) Carbon fiber hood, doors, fenders and trunklid, keep the creature comforts of heat and a/c (i believe to be only like a 50-75lb weight increase) NO ONSTAR, connectivity and stuff like that, light weight recaro seats (don't need heated seats) dont really need power windows, lighter weight tubular K-frame with A-arms instead of the weird looking set up we currently have and adjustable shocks/struts. Did I miss anything? Oh yeah and no pickles!

IMO, some of you guys just want this car because Ford brought out the Boss 302. Now yall want GM to respond and bring back the Z28. Just so you can say GM has a Camaro model that competes with Fords Boss 302. When 1st and foremost, GM needs the ZL1 to sell very well before even considering another Camaro model. JMHO!
Most of us Z28 guys were hoping the ZL1 would not be the Z28. It did not fit the mold. It was more of a uh well a ZL1. Most Z28 guys are traditionalist. I want a Z28 to be just that. Plus I won't spend the money thell be asking for the ZL1. It's a great car no doubt just not the Z28 I'm looking for. And I think GM believes that as well hence they named it a ZL1.

I would buy a Z28 if it was a bare bones performer that's lighter, faster and handles better than the SS at a decent price.

New test picture of the new Z/28.

Can you see the Z/28 emblems on it?

Thank you alex33x for letting me use your car.

Well, I have a somewhat unique perspective to add to this besides just saying "I want a Z28". I am definitely a minority segment, but possibly an important one. I currently have the 2011 Camaro LS M6 model. I did not buy the LS because I wanted better fuel economy or because I didn't have good enough credit to buy the SS. I bought the LS because it was the no frivolous extras model.

That's right, I didn't want backup sensors, a V8 that ran as a four cylinder half the time, bluetooth, Ipod connections, heated seats, etc, etc. I wanted a Camaro that was just an awesome car with the basics, because I wouldn't even use all that extra stuff if I had it, and I'm sure not going to pay for features I don't have a use for.

That brings me to the Z28 possibility. I would love to have a Camaro model that was focused solely on performance, and not on frivolous extras. A superior V8 without the half and half mode, no extras that aren't based on performance. An interior with the basics like my LS, but confidence that the higher price tag was for performance parts and not a bunch of stuff I don't want or need. THAT is the Z28 I'd go out and buy a second Camaro for. I wouldn't trade away my LS, I love it, but I would buy a second Camaro if it was a Z28.

a Z28 focused on performance and not frivolous extras is another Camaro I would buy. That is about the only way I see myself buying another one anytime soon. Mainly because all the SS models have too much in them that I don't need or even want. A 5th gen Z28 should be above the SS in performance, but akin to an LS in terms of extras. That's my 2 cents.

Amen to this. As I said a LSX block, LSX-DR heads. Bare bones bad ass Z/28. Without all the bells & whistles I would not use either.
