you're gonna hate me...

Personally, I don't want to see a more powerful z/28. I had hoped that the z/28 would go with a suspension/design upgrade, but I just got a fully loaded, V8 trim, Camaro, and now it has been dullened. Of course I'm happy with what I got, but I know I'm not the only one who is going to feel like a Supercharged Camaro is stealing my thunder.

All I've got to say is this, if they are really going to make it, it better SMOKE the absolute LIFE out of the gt500...or else why even bother.

I know what your going thru. I bought a 2005 mustang gt when they first came out and loved it until the gt500 came out. But, unless you have a truck load of money this is a game you will never win. Trust me. I've been chasing this my whole life. Just be happy with the ride you have. Besides there are already alot of cars in the price range of what that z is going to be that are already stealing your thunder.

Yep...
When they build the Z/28, they will already be looking for the next thing. As I said in another post, this is the risk with a first year car, but you get to have all the celebrity and notoriety that the buyers that follow won't get...

I'm sure there are other reasons you bought your car, you shouldn't be saddend by a different model coming out. How long did you think your "thunder" was going to last lol

coolman, i'm sure there won't be TOO many circa 50k$ cars outperforming the z/28. thats what i love about my SS, few cars in the same pricerange can hang...

I hear ya

It has always felt like my Z28 was in the shadow of the SS - now I will get an SS in next few weeks - and I'm thinking - curses - maybe I should have waited for the Z28 !

Such is life

Good news is I will have my SS for 2-3 years before we will see Z28s on the roads - (and I am sure there will be major waiting for them)
and I can add a pedders kit and supercharger and probably achieve the same overall results... but it does make you feel a bit like you got 2nd prize.

eh, no biggy bro. By that time you can trade your SS or buy a few mods plus a super charger.

Not in the way we are taking here. Both will have the same motor and cost about the same. The caddy will be alittle more because, well ,it's a caddy.
What I'm saying is that z/28 will be aleast in the 50's if not 60's. which means in that case there are already cars in that price range that be the camaro. So, just be happy with the one you got. Besides, you still a have a few more years before you car is no longer the top camaro.

The Z/28 will probably be in the 45K range to keep it competive in the market. And the SS will probably stay the "Nicer" model of the 2 with the options that are available. The Z/28 will just have the S/C LSA...just a guess btw.

I'd certainly like a Z/28...but I'd also want everything my 2SS /RS has too...to get that I think I'll be looking at high $50s if not low $60s!

As much as I'd love to have one...out of my price range!

Now...make it $45K or so with leather as such...(ain't gonna happen!)

Personally, and I mean no disrespect, but it sounds like you're saying that there shouldn't be a "better" car to be had because you just got your car... I could be misunderstanding, however, if that's the case, that just doesn't seem fair to those who have either waited because they had to; waited because they wanted to see what would happen; or just couldn't make their mind up until they knew for sure; or other. I'm sorry, but if that is what you're saying, I just don't agree and will leave it at that.

Respectfully...
