It's been a while since the C7 was revealed and no Z yet. Is the clock running out or is there still hope for a 5th gen Z?

There is still more to reveal with the C7 and it really hasn't had long enough in the spotlight yet. I do hope they reveal it soon cause if they wait much longer and its a 2014 model year it might come late in the model year like the ZL1 did.

I wouldn't expect to see the Z/28 until a platform change. For clues look to the ATS-V. IJS

I'm starting to think that we won't see a Z/28 until the 6th gen because I don't think GM doesn't want to cut in on the marketing of the new C7 Corvette. Especially since they have spent alot of time and money on research and development.

I don't think it has anything to do with the C7. The LS7 is the obvious engine for the Z/28 and I don't think GM will do it. I doubt they can't do it, more like they won't do it. They want to keep the top model Vettes as exclusive as possible and don't want to ruin that by dropping their engines in anything else.

With the 6th gen Camaro coming, GM better get to work on the LT engines to power them or we will be stuck with a V6 Camaro and a V8 Camaro until they do. If they want to keep the Camaro around, they can't hold back viable engines to power it. Other wise, they will have to limit it's performance to keep it below the Vette and it will die off again.

I'm starting to think that document showing the LS7 as a Camaro engine was a photoshop.

You make some valid points with regards to the motor. I think GM has strategically planned for each release of their top high performance vehicles so as to not "cross-pollinate" or detract from the emphasis of the releases of their two top dogs in the performance category. It's just good business practice. I can't remember a time in the last 20 years that they made two major announcements in the same year for both the Camaro and the Corvette. Do you?

And this is the New GM, not the old, they have to establish a good business plan that will make the most sense for the Chevy division as well as in the best interest of the company, not just to satisfy a small percentage of enthusiasts..

No, I don't but only being 22 might have something to do with that.

True, but I don't see how pushing both cars to their limit would hurt anything. Plus, using the engines on both cars would make them cheaper. It's not like the Camaro would ever come close to the Corvette performance wise if they both had the same engine.

You're right about the performance aspect, but again, it does come down go them deciding if it meets their goals.

Which is why there is no Z/28.
