My opinion on what the Z28 version should be!

I think the Z28 should be a V6 twin turbo package along with lighter parts such as... CF hood, CF trunk... I wish they would built it to challenge the new Nissan GT-R! Since it's a twin-t V6 it's self....oh and it's a big ass car! Now that would be a comeback with a kick between the legs of our competitors!!!!

Moved.

You aren't alone in wanting a Z/28 with that formula. Personally, it's not what I would like to see. But I'm always happy to hear another opinion!

hmmm the nissan GT-r is an awd car. maybe the z28 should be awd. hmmmm or maybe the corvette z06 can handle the gt-r. which is in the price range of the gtr. . .I don't know. but the z28 isn't going to be a TT6 if it comes to light. just does not do the name justice.

U might not agree but the camaro needs a nice twist, I bet you would change your mind if they actually built one. This kind of change would throw everybody off! Also would make a great line of performance for chevy!!!

Why does it need a twist? Why would GM want to 'throw everybody off'?

6 cylinders would disgrace the Z/28 name.

I could see a twin-turbo in a smaller/lighter Alpha-based next gen Camaro, but not in the current model.

no more IROC (international race of champions) on top of that the IROC was a better version of the Z28

I wouldn't mind seeing this type of setup, maybe as a the LT....keep the regular V6 in the LS, use this as the upgrade to LT, then the SS, then the king of the mountain Z28....

Oh by the way, ShanOmac, I never liked the Berlinetta, it always sounded a retarded name from a cheesy 80's tv show or a crazy ass German lady name.... Where the hell do you get Berlinetta,when your talking about a camaro. There's a reason why nobody talks about that era, that past is buried and gone, LEAVE IT ALONE!

life must suck then. . .why are you getting bent out of shape over a car that hasn't hit the streets, hasn't been officially announced, and hasn't got an official price? on top of all this you get to have fun in YOUR SS now while some of us have to wait. don't feel ripped it's pointless. there's always going to be something coming down the road that's better.

That actually fits pretty well. Berlinetta was supposed to be about being European and techy wasn't it?
