Interesting....just read this

Chevrolet plans to have you, and the Boss 302, covered. Around April of  2012, Chevy will release what so far has been referred to by insiders as the “Track Pack.” This significantly stiffened Camaro will be the hard-core version, with handling as its primary focus. That doesn’t mean it won’t get a power upgrade, though. The “Track Pack,” which might inherit the Z28 moniker, could have an uprated iteration of the standard V-8 or a version of the LS7 7.0-liter V-8 from the Corvette Z06. Both high-performance models will—like all 2012 Camaros—carry revised

uh...no...the ZL1 had already been announced...by April/11...

What we're likely to still see is an announcement for something resembling the SEMA '11 "1LE" concept and, as stated, if "upgraded power" is present then perhaps a "rename"...

At least that's what the ZEE-creatures are hoping for...

Ya pretty sure the ZL1 is what they were talking about. Magazines are written months ahead of their cover date. Sometimes 6 mos or more.

C and D is 6-8 weeks ahead...which would have been AFTER the ZL1 announcement...
They already knew about the non-"Z28" by then...

Plus, the ZL1 was known as the "HP".
