And I know enthusiasts and street racers want it to be stripped bare and light, but is that what the general public really wants? I have absolutely no use for bluetooth, i actually believe it should be taken out of cars, and EVERYONE should be able to read a map, but they can't because they have technology to do everything for them, bagh! But my point amongst this rambling is that it NEEDS options to appeal to the public and not just a small fraction of the driving population. GM should keep it like they have it with options and like how Ford has their GT500, a base model and a luxury model. They need more options even cause people HAVE to have EVERY comfort possible, bagh! again.

Just my semi insane two-cents, ha

I guess I only have interest in the 1st and 5th generation Camaros. I always thought the Z28 was top of the line, but I'm getting an education on this site. With everything I've read about the Z28 history I don't know what to think. So this is what I would like to see:

Camaro 427
Camaro Convertible 427
Camaro Supercharged
Camaro Supercharged Convertible.

I just want a Camaro Convertible with 500+HP. I would be more interested in a 427 Camaro just because I like NA engines more than forced breathing.

I still wished they would have released the Z/28 or whatever "this" version is going to be the first year. Most of us would have shelled out some extra G's for the top model Camaro.

Didn't GM say before they wanted the "SS" to be the top model Camaro just like other Chevy models?

Grrr...

I don't think it would have happened that way even if it was clear skys for the past few years. Generally, low-volume, "special" models like this get released a year or two after the base. Like the Corvette was released in '05, and the Z06 in '06, etc. Plus, if you want to look at it positively...this model will benefit from lessons learned from mistakes made on the first-year car, cables touching, etc.

Very few other models have brand-specific designations like "Z28" or "Z06"...and I don't think they ever said SS was going to be the top model.

Why don't you guys just stop listening to rumors and speculation...
Remember opinions are like @$$hole$, everybody has one.
Just sit back and relax and when the brochure comes out then we'll talk about it.

Now I really have no Idea what to expect......


SC:Now that the Camaro is in the showrooms and on the street, whatabout extending the model lieup with a cobertible, and possibly a Z/28 version? What would a Z/28 be like?

AO: The convertible has been announced, but it has been delayed until 2011. As far as a Z/28, or a performance version, we've had this debate internally many, many times. What would you call the performance version? A Z/28? A COPO? A Yenko? Would you bring back a nostalgic name, or not? Create a new one? The SS was always the big dog Camaro, not the Z/28. The first Z/28 was built just to get us into the racing circuit against the Mustang and all the other cars that were in that class. If you were going to take a Z/28 approach, you'd try to stay true to the RPO, build a car that you could drive daily on the street, take to the drag strip and do well, or take to the track and do well, which the original Z/28 did. Take some things out of it, get the mass down, use and existing small-block, maybe an ls7, an ls9. Make it a great performing car for the purist.
maybe z/28 and yenko don't forget ItalianRetardOnCruz I did get a little insight on a very possible yenko version that id love

I'm interested in a light camaro so a Z\28 would be right up my alley! Make a z\28 that cuts all the frills out and gets this thing down to fighting weight
ZL1= ls9 and loaded
SS= duh!
Z\28 lighter and a LS7 would be great!
