Could be. But I don't see THE rims....and THE tires...



Maybe they are just saving that for later.

That's highly unlikely, if anything it would most likely be classed a Z28.

In case you're wondering how I know I worked at the Milford proving grounds for a couple of years with the truck group on the gen IV powertrain in my youth.

How about instead of a V6 front fascia with a mailslot, they give us a V8 front fascia without a mailslot

I bet that would look better

They had to do this deliberately to confuse us:
  • V6 bumper
  • SS mail slot
  • ZL1 quad-tipped exhaust

The yellow car in the pictures is merely a distraction to keep the camera mans attention away from what is really happening!

Pic # 8 look above the distraction, guy carrying an assault rifle protecting the LT-1 powered GEN 6 in a fenced in area.

Pic # 9 Guy in the forground holding a pistol on Ford engineers trying to get a look at the LT-1 powered GEN 6 as it is getting some tweaks in the service bay.

It's about the situational awareness

The lower V6-style facia makes sense...the larger opening for the V8 is to facilitate Automatic Transmission cooling...which would NOT be available with an LS7.

NPP exhaust would be a necessary feature to get an "honest" 500 net hp in the Camaro chassis, which otherwise has a more restrictive exhaust system than the Z06s.

As for the mailslot, making it disappear would be a good thing.

TWO things, at a minimum, missing:

1) Forged wheels, ala 1LE/ZL1

2) ZL1 Brembos

Aero tweaks to follow...

How many days to the Chicago Auto Show?!

So how do they know it has an LS7 in it? Just because "It sounds like a V8" doesn't mean it's an LS7. It could still be an LS3 or possibly the new LT1.

What makes you think there would not be an Auto LS7?

This version could simply be a drivetrain analysis mule...without the full ZEE suit of clothing...which BTW should include an extractor/RamAir composite hood.

Maybe GM is trying to tell us something. It's a V6 lower bumper with a V8 slot. Maybe GM is trying to tell us that this is a V6 with V8 power. The quad tips could represent the ZL1's forced induction.

In conclusion, my guess is that this is a force-fed V6.

Same "The Blur" from back in the day?

If GM does release an LS7-equipped 5th gen I will be quite jealous.

There is ONE bucket o' water for all this, though...Wixom PBC is relocating to Bowling Green, where I doubt they'll continue LS7 production.

http://www.gminsidenews.com/forums/f...-green-116045/

So, if an LS7'd ZEE is in the cards, Wixom better assemble a few pallet loads of LS7s while they can...

Because it is all part of the game. They know EXACTLY what it is but because GM hasn't made it official it has to be presented in the media as speculation.

Crate engines are big business. They will be making those engines for some time no matter where they are located.
