Don't you want your '69 to be even more exclusive? I mean, I can understand the wanting of a new Z/28 ... I just think we should leave the legend alone.

My Z isn't exclusive of the 20,302 built in 1969 there are 50,000 in the world today.

Chevrolet couldn't sell the 69 ZL1's built in '69 but didn't have a hard time selling the Z's.

There has been a Z in every generation it's just going to take some time for the new one to appear.

I have seen a new Boss and that's one hot car.

I would buy a Z/28 in a heartbeat(no pun intended). I just hope GM steps up thier game and makes it reliable and able to handle mods easily like a mustang does. I just had to have my whole transmision and driveshaft replaced so I am pretty leary of the durability of these cars. All I have are long tubes and a cold air intake and NO TUNE. Maybe I got one of the bad output shafts or something since its an early build. But if it couldnt handle that..... I wouldnt trust it with the procharger I had planned on doing.

YES YES YES, we need a Z. Why people think that the Z28 is a bad option I just don't get it. The ZL1 while cool if priced at 50K or above in this economy with the Grand Sport Vette being 55k and a much better car is a no brainier. The Z28 if done right would be way more affordable, w better fuel economy unlike the ZL1. If you ask me scrape the base Vette and the ZL1 an build a Z28. Now hows that for stirring the pot.

P.S. this is all in good fun so don't take it to heart.

GM could easily design a z28 with a true ram air, different cam, less stuff and sell them

I would love to see a z28 but for me to buy it...
This is what I would want

1. Bare bones car
2. at lest 300lbs lighter
3. and a LS7 or another NA engine with a little more power
4. Smaller lighter wheels
5. same price as a 1ss

If not I would rather keep modding my SS!

You do realize that #5 makes #s 1-4 completely impossible, right?

I'd plan on modding your SS, and HAVE FUN (I mean that sincerely!).

This isn't going to happen, so keep on modding.

I expect the Z/28 to be priced between the SS and the ZR1.

Thats why I said bare bones car, meaning fancy crap! Forget all the power crap like seat's and sun roof, seat wormer's ect even put a solid axle rear. Basicly a factory race car, I dont think it should cost more then say 35k... the only thing you would be getting is performance and safety. I know what you guys are saying, its not going to happen, I know that. My SS is just fine anyway.

I don't see it happening, but I fully support a BOSS killer! I believe we need a model geared specifically to kill every Mustang in production!

LT must own Mustang.
SS must own GT.
Z28(?) must own BOSS.
ZL1 must own GT500.

End of story.

A solid rear axle for a track car when it already has IRS???

That would be an incredible way to save 100+ pounds... The IRS in the Camaro is poor, hopefully the FE4 option will remedy the strange handling characteristics the Camaro has now. Most people confuse IRS with a handling aid when it is nothing more than a ride enhancer. High level IRS systems do improve handling but that is not found under the 5th Gen. Look to the Grand Am series in the Continental Tire GS class and you will see the difficulty the Camaro's have in that class.
