more then likely it wouldn't reach 500 tq but 500 hp it might. that's the biggest disappointment I would have if this is a Z. where's the torque?

If the body was designed by Jay Leno, he should stop reading motor trend and looking at GM spy shots.

Carbon Copy of the pics we've seen, aside from the hood.

Hey guys! I've 'Designed' the new Corvette C7: It looks exactly like the one in Transformers 2, except the spoiler is different! Can I goez to SEMA Nao?

i guess with enoguh boost it could be attained. even 450tq would be do able, but the car would have to lose 200+lbs to make it worth while.

this car is like the LS7 concept we went ape shit for last year pretending it was the z28. gm just like to trick us with these crazy looking concept and not saying anything about the Z28

I'm not sure jay had a lot to do with the engine, at least that's how I understood it.

who's to say he didn't have the design down before the motortrend guys saw the clay. who's to say that it wasn't his clay model?

another reason I don't believe it's a Z28. goes against the concept of a Z28. but what do I know. like I said I'll believe it when they say "This is the new Z28. it has a twin turbo v-6 blah blah blah."

or not. motor trend sees a model. they make scetches. who made the model and who inspired the design are unknown. to say he ripped it off is pointless because you don't know. and to say he didn't is almost as pointless. YOU JUST DON'T KNOW!

I think that probably about 3 months before Transformers 2 was in pre production, the Z/28 design was more or less finalized.

If GM and the rest of the world wouldn't have gone tits-up during TF2 production, chances are good that the new bumblebee was going to be the free advertisement for the Z/28 model that has been put on hold until recently.

Once again, just my opinion.

Nabbed from Motortrend:


TF2 Bumlebee:



From GM publications:



Change the hood, and you have more or less the same car that is on the SEMA floor.

All we can really do right now is speculate until the Detroit Auto Show, at the earliest.

Which sucks, cause it's a long ways away :(

Good point. But have you guys noticed that anything Camaro related seems to bend the space/time continuum? It seemed like about 15 years from my order in November till I got the keys in June!

At that rate, waiting till January will probably feel like about 4.3 years :(

I know we all assume the pending z28 will have the LSA and is pretty much a finished design I'm just thinking down the road. Any thoughts?
I'm not gonna say anything but apparently I had a hunch. I doubt this is the Z28 but maybe it could be. Then what most people assume the Z28 will be might be the ZL1 hmmmm.

where are the pics of the "J leno" rear spoiler? It has a light in it and the article that unofficially announced the Z28 said that it would be a taller profile spoiler...maybe that is it?

I'll believe it's the Z/28 when GM confirms it. I bet the car never sees production. The video of the sneak peek of SEMA someone posted in the other thread stated "Special Editions." I'm sure this will be one of them, GIVEN the low chance I see of this going to production. Are they trying to rip off the Taurus Sho?

I doubt this is a Z28 because of the fact that GM has "traditionally" held the big announcments and unveilings of their cars for either the Detroit or New York auto shows. The unveiling, or presentation, of a Z28 will undoubtedly be big news. I'm thinking it's a functioning design study to gather public feedback and reaction. However, I could be wrong..... jmo.

Have you forgotten about the Buick GN's or Pontiac TTA? Those were a turbo'd 3.8L, and were (and still are 20 years later) a pretty wicked combo...

I reckon a turbo'd 3.6L would be a lot easier on the upcoming CAFE requirements than another large naturally aspirated thumper...?
