Damn good eye on analyzing the photo! God I want that hood, I'm sure that GM probably won't produce the Z28 for another 4 years but I would have no problem at all purchasing an aftermarket hood that's modeled just like that.

I thought we all pretty much agreed that there was a z/28 with the LSA engine in the works and it got postponed? this is probably that car. We might see it in a few years nice find

Since this thread is about the z/28 I for one hope that when it arrives it does so as follows:

1. Aggressive styling like the photos above
2. Additional horsepower via exhaust, cam, tuning etc without the additional weight of FI
3. A curb weight 200-300 less than the SS

I know this has all been beat to death but we can still hope even if these illustrations/models are from 1-2 years ago.

Nice but I will stick with what I have and will mod it to my liking. Even though it is a sexy Z.

If I recall correctly, the Z/28 was produced so they'd have enough of them to be qualified to run in the old Trans Am series back in the late 60's. As far as Camaros, they had a base model and two performance models; the RS or Rally Sport which was mostly a "sporty" look, and the SS or Super Sport which was the high performance street car. If I remember right the RS came with the 327 small block V8 and the SS was either a 350 small block or 396 big block V8.

The Z/28's were built to comply with the requirements of Trans Am rules. I've attached a picture of Mark Donohue's Penske/Sunoco Camaro and you can see the Z/28 badge on the front fender. They were the road race cars but had to be built in enough quantities and sold on the street to qualify for Trans Am.

Later they became the "top performer" over the SS because of the racing image and success of Penske/Donohue. When they ran the first season of the International Race Of Champions or IROC as it became known, they used Porsche 911's. Second season they changed to Z/28 Camaro's, so the glamour and status of the racing image made the Z/28 the "high performance" car in the public's mind. Chevy naturally took full advantage of that and marketed it as such from then on.

The IROC series produced some great racing with a field full of identically built Camaros being driven by some of the biggest names from Formula 1, Indy, Can Am, Trans Am, etc. I have great memories of being in the pits and paddock areas of the old Riverside Raceway in Southern California (now gone) and being around these racing greats and watching them race. I met Jackie Stewart, Emerson Fittipaldi, Mark Donohue and Dan Gurney all in one day there during qualifying and I got their autographs on my pit pass which I still have.

Those were some great times.

Those were some great times.


But the IROC model was top dog during 1985-1990, If I recall, in 89-90 they went to just the RS and IROC model, with Z-28 being only a badge on the dash. 91, they dropped the IROC sponsership, and therefore, Z28 was the top of the line
The top HANDLING model was given to the IROC (1985+), HUGE (for the time) 245/50/16 VR Gatorback tires... Bilstien Gas Filled Shocks, Thicker Sway Bars... etc
Monikers are for Marketing, plain and simple... with the 4th Generation, SLP's evolved into SS models... and those were the Top Dogs...
