Z/28 = ZL1 without supercharger. What's the big deal? Nothing, just GM marketing, yet people will line up around the corner to get one like they do with iPhone's and iPads.

I am pretty durn sure that GM fully intended on calling the ZL1 a Z/28 but of course all of us on here waived the B/S flag and said no way cause it is supercharged..all of the parts were already in the making for test mules and such and of course this is all my opinion..

i believe that G.M. will eventually build the Z/28 again,they have followed suit with all other models of the Camaro so far,...as well as beyond(ZL1,1LE)..it's coming,we just dont know when,but G.M. knows,they stand to lose too much $ by not producing it,there are alot of people out here that would buy one,

sense the sarcasm?



If they do produce a Z/28, it won't be out for a year or two at the soonest, if so... then I might get one as a sibling to my SS.... or Maybe a Big brother ZL1... hummm...

I fully agree but with an interesting twist of sorts..what has GM done since the inception of the 5th gen? keep it fresh..so I see a gap here before the 6th gen comes into play..everyone is going to want a new and bold 6th gen so the marketing at first won't matter if they use the nameplate of Z/28..but there is a year or two that will be a gap before it comes out and they are still gonna have to sell 5th gens during that span..are you following so far? I look forward to a Z/28 for mid model '13 or '14 call my bluff, it makes marketing sense
