Same grille and fascia as the SS test mule at the "Ring"

Yes I knew I had seen that front end before.

Fun stuff.... I just love all this speculation and ideas throw around!

Or less real, depending on how you read it. I would say we still have a good chance at an LS7 Z28 but I'm less optimistic about this car being one.
I googled GM Performance exhaust and it looks nothing like what is on that Camaro. It looks like that Camaro was modified for dual mode exhaust. You know, to extract as much power out of the LS7.

And just like before, the V8 model will have 2x as much of both as the 4 can muster, and will sound 16x better.

Ummm. Stupid question but how do you know it's a test vehicle and not some dude driving home that did some mix and match mods? I mean what do the pictures give away?

Is it the number on the windshield?

Ls-7 in a camaro sounds interesting but how much? I checked into upgrading with the build your own LS-7 through GM and the price would have been 22k plus. I think I can get more bang for the buck doing upgrades on my LS-3. especially when Gm is only getting 505 HP out of the LS-7.

Ok I've been looking at the pictures more...if you take the distance of the front fender to the ground and multiply it by the horsepower of the SS then factor in the number 4 for the quad tips minus the inertia from the flux capacitor.....it might have an LS7 under the hood. Hahaha

Love the speculation but come on. IMO GM will never put a LS7 in a production car again. I think the beast dies in the Z06. CAFE laws will kill it. We are only going to see smaller more efficient engines (that will still make good power).

I wanna play !!

Maybe the ZL1 has run it's course; no pun intended, and the Z28 takes it's place??? Boy this is fun. Sure would make the ZL1 special to those that were able to attain one in the few short years it was available.

Ok what do i win fbodfather

I think everyone is forgetting about those leaked VIN cards with all the engine options for 2014. There IS an LF3 which is a twin turbo 3.6. To me...that's just as exciting as an LS7.

If the N/A 3.6 lays down 323 what do 2 turbos add?

Manufacturers license plate on the rear.
In Michigan, a license with a 'M' in the middle indicates it's a manufacturers license plate.

.....go back and read what I posted about a performance Exhaust system......

(meaning an exhaust system that you could buy in the future from a GM Dealership...)


.....we TEST them before we offer them....therefore......Google away - you won't see it yet.
