OK, I'll go out on...
It's a Z/28 mule. Why, you ask. I zoomed way in and can see the Jay Leno lower front end in the shape under all that black n white (we all knew the Leno car was the Z/28 sans the real engine). Also appears to have black tape on the rear quarter where the (again) Leno car had the rear cooling duct. Then looking closely at the front wheels they are exatly what has been described by numerous mags as the Z/28 "tuning fork" design. The hood "bumb" is strange looking at best, I'm sure it's hiding the Z/28 hood's true shape.

It is not a Trans Am knock off. It's a new gen Z/28. Right #3!?

Ha, that is a good guess. In fact it might be what I would guess......if I were guessing..................but I'm not guessing so therefore your guess remains a good guess, which of course can not be confirmed by me. But if I were guessing, I would guess that your guess is a good guess without even having to elaborate on the fact that it is in fact only a good guess.

I think he is suggesting that N3 has some comfortable slippers

My bet on the camo car is http://jalopnik.com/5452844/new-cama...ets-arent-dead Fits the lines that we can see.... but it was entertaining nonetheless to see Numero 3 do the soft shoe around the mythical Z.

Hmmm interesting read about the 2011 GT500. The weight savings with that aluminum block is going to be crucial. I hope GM has something up its sleeve to compete......

Were I to guess? None...at least in the near future -- there's very little you can do to a CAR without a full-on overhaul. They may shave a few pounds here and there...but nothing drastic. Remember -- Camaro comes STANDARD with aluminum-block engines (which is Ford's only real weight-saver here)...GM doesn't make them any other way for passenger cars.

I think we will be pleasantly surprised at the weight of the Z, "if" it's produced. With all these quotes of 4300lbs...I think it will be less.

I mean...if the GT is 3600 and the SS is 3850. It's reasonable to expect a Z28 at ~4000 if the GT500 pegs in around 3800. PLUS...the CTS-V is a very different car in terms of weight and chassis. It starts at Camaro SS weight carrying only a V6....
