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.

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.

True enough, but what % of GM crates are "dry" LS3-7-9s? They sell a ton of wet LS3s and LSAs, relatively, which are assembly line items (read: much less expensive, labor-wise) elsewhere...

It's obviously a V6 Performance Package test mule.

HID's but unpainted shark fin. Confusion runs wild on C5.

Good points, but there also isn't an auto trans on the ZR1 Vette, yet the ZL1 has it and it's faster.

My bet is this is not any kind of test car bust just a modded '10-'12 V6.

I think it would be awesome to have a 7L option in a 5th gen, Z28 or not. I just can't wrap my head around where it would fit on a cost basis. The additional power would surely require some upgraded goodies (brakes, driveline). Suspension would need to equal 1LE. The LS7 is not cheap and I could easily see this car being $50K + to start. Probably many would buy it as it would probably be lighter than the ZL1 which would make it a better choice on a road course.

I agree, the base LT1 would not make enough power for a proper Z/28.
