Right now it's a sleeper!!! so BEWARE!!! if it is v6 TT,it could have more power than expected! GM has been VERY successful with the camaro so far..I believe whatever trick they have up there sleeve will be another success, just wait!

I dunno - I have some pretty strong opinions about this design. I just don't see the benefit of GM and Leno working together. Call me narrow minded, but we really don't need a Leno Inspired Camaro. The GM Design is top-notch!

As many have stated already, these cosmetic frills they have allowed Leno to put his name on do not make me want a V6. Adding TT doesn't make me want a Leno Car. And just becasue he has his name on it doesn't make me want to go to an Auction 10 years from now and bid on a Leno Inspired TT Camaro from 2010. Not doing it for me, sorry jay - Love you GM, but you have more expertise in the Performance Division. Listen to the masses and bring it!!!

As for a Z28 conspiracy, I'll stay away from this one... But I will say, GM would never allow Leno to put his name on the Legacy name as the Z28. I'm no history buff, but name one who was a custom one-off design from concept to production and carried the Z28 name? Come on, somebody make me look stupid - I'm good with it.

Now as far as cosmetic appeal - I want that F%@$#*G Hood! I will pay a $1500 right now for that hood. But mine will be functional. Like I mentioned in the original thread for this subject. "Are those inlets functional?"

...mine will be.

Since Jay Leno is one of the biggest car collectors and enthusiest in the world. He was given a Concept Camaro to drive back in 2006 around the city to gauge consumer reaction. It doesnt shock me that he was involved in the design of this vehicle.

I can tell you the Z28 will not have a v6, maybe they will recreate the 302 but I assure you they will not put a v6 in it. My guess z28 will be powered by the Cadillac cts-v supercharged engine like previously speculated.

Ill keep my guns, freedom and money you can keep the change!

Its not politics, its opinion, that's what these forums are all about the love of the Camaro and varying opinions.

the one line you posted in regard to what I said is political. We do not allow that here. You can voice your opinions in other ways.

I wont argue after this but just because I mentioned the president doesn't mean I'm talking politics. I understand the need to keep politics off this site and greatly respect that. I could have said look what change has done for the bills, (TO) that doesn't mean Im talking sports just referring to an individual and situation.

If the Z28 is a twin turbo V6, I called it a long time ago when I argued that muscle cars are more than cylinders. I also said it was unlikely in large part because so many people who identify themselves as enthusiasts are not enthusiastic about a leaner muscle car in the body of a V8 with the efficiency of a V6. There's a style and a standard of performance associated with muscle cars, and a V6 has just as much right to bear the crown. If it can race with V8s, then who cares what's under the hood. Performance enthusiasts care a lot more about the performance numbers than the cylinder numbers. My only concern is cost. Given the reluctance of traditionalists to embrace a high-performance V6 from an American automaker in the body of a classic muscle car, a TTV6 simply can't be expected to cost more than a moderately loaded V8 and expect to make a profit.

Did they use a V6 to keep the cost reasonable and better fuel economy?

i highly doubt a V6 will go in the Z28. However, if a TTV6 does go in, then im sure as hell happy to have an SS. All that would need to be done is adding a supercharger to the V8. Then i could push numbers that would surpass the Z28. Just like how Z06 (7.0L V8) with an added supercharger could probably show similar, if not better, performance when compared to a ZR1 (6.2L Supercharged V8).

Now all i need is that monster hood.

I thought Z/28 stood for 2 doors, 8 Cylinders.

But I would be okay with this as a new model.

people still underestimate the LLT.

Check out what the 370Z is doing with a twin turbo set up.


and some people need to check their history.
the rpo code for the SS back in the day was Z27, Z28 was just next.
It has nothing to do with 2 doors 8 cylinders
