Silver, green, white, and blue are all GM cars.

why can't these cars be for new GMPP or whatever parts you can order through the parts desk?

Here's the scoop on the silver Camaro.

It's a V6 twin turbo built by GM (that's why it's in the GM display). Features turbonetics turbos.

GM design worked with Jay Leno on the design of this car, so the car is labeled "inspired by Jay Leno"

the dark blue (?) one I assume is the executive edition?
the green is the other special edition?
the white to show off the color since it has only been out a short time?
the silver (they used silver quite prominently for original concept) gotta be the Z!?

Sorry guys, either way I don't care for it. It looks like a cross between a camaro and an italian supercar. What happen to the muslce? Hope they make the one that looks like the movie bummble bee with the hood scoop.

Didn't Jinx do a rendering of a "Z" with that style hood as one of his visions? I like the car, clean lines... it could be hinting towards a future Z car... but for a V6 that car would kick some serious oval butzky.

I'll take that car with an LSA and about 15 psi of boost :tweetz:

I'm getting a feeling of deja-vu here.. Didn't you say this exact same thing once before?

The Z28 IS going to be a Supercar, just not Italian.

I am in lust with the hood, and the entire look of the front of this car. It looks positively predatory.

( +10% if the dual vents tie into the intercooler system )

I'm patient, and never lost faith that Chevy would eventually up the ante with a Z28. When it comes our way, I will be much poorer, but smile wickedly when I pass the 'stangs.

Well, well, well....mods awake before noon. That's nice to see for a change. Yeah, hard to believe they'd put anything but a big fat V8 in a Z28....least I hope not.
Quit pickin' on Tran, Supermans. He just may be right this time.

If you read the comment #4 on the AutoBlog link, a guy who was supposedly there last night said that Leno commented that if it was up to him, this would be the next Z/28. THANK GOD IT'S NOT UP TO HIM.

Odd....I think you all are thinking too..."straight and narrow"....
Why does the skin have to come with the powertrain?


After all...the V6 Camaro (most closely styled to the original concept car)....does not come equipped with an AFM LS2....

We know the Z/28 is a little ways away...

We also know that there are....other...Camaro's that could use a TT V6, yes? Not-yet-been-named vehicles. The likes of which would do well competing against an 'ecoboost' Mustang........riiiiiight???

So why is this vehicle "all or nothing"?

hmmmmmm.....

Don't overthink it. It's hot. Enjoy it.

I think it would be great for it to be offered, I'm just totally against it being labeled as a Z/28 though with that engine setup.

And that's perfectly fine...because as we know...the Leno car is not the Z/28.
