Depends on the weight/price. If the car weighs 100lbs less than the SS it wont be worth too much of a premium over the SS.

If it weighs 400lbs less, and costs less than 5k more, than yes probably.

I would be a little disappointed because all the other generations got v8's.

I put yes under the assumption that money is not a variable.

Because there's no way I'd be able to afford a Z28 no matter WHAT engine it has.

I'd vote yess for the exterior and no for the heart of that machine.

I voted no. I had a 3rd gen Z-28 and cannot see the point of a Z-28 without a V-8. As far as the interior...the trim should be similar to the SS with the exception of racing seats. IMO the exterior should look more like the "Chroma" car than Leno's.

I can't help myself. As much as it is starting to irritate me to see Z28 threads, I gotta' have a voice. If someone important reads this, I gotta' be heard

NO. This thing's gotta' be about the weight of a 4th. Gen for me to even consider it, and even then, it's not too likely. But hey - for everyone who likes it, more power to ya'

I think the question is would you buy the Leno Camaro, not would you buy if it was the Z28. LOL

At least for me, I'd sure consider the Leno Edition and it wouldn't matter if it was THE Z or not a Z.

But pound for pound (what does the LE weigh?) an SS is still an awesome car and it will take something pretty special to top it.

In that case - no. I love everything about that car (no lying) except the powertrain. Everything else (with minor exception to the hood) I'd keep. If that would be LE, I'd save my money for SS or Z28.

If GM came out with even more models than they do now, I would not complain at all and even been really suprised. Whatever it takes to keep Camaro on top of the other two can't be a bad idea

.....I wonder if anybody's regretting showing a car like that, yet........



If this thing were the Z/28? Identical?...yes.

I have no silly "principals" concerning V8s, I just consider them to be superior in every way to other engine designs. I love the style of this car, the power is there, and it's only a matter of a tune (and maybe internals) to up that power near 500-600 hp. Plus, it handles like a champ, has an up-level interior, and probably costs somewhere in the low to mid 40s.....

What's more is that this HYPOTHETICAL car would bear the sacred name of the vehicle I've been waiting for for nearly 4 years...

The Leno is an impeccable car, it is. But I gotta have that V8 roar!

I know in the future there's a very good chance V8 muscle will be bumped from production for the sake of greener, more economical cars, and this Leno car is exactly how it should be done!

But for me, I gotta have that V8 roar!

I'd be very doubtful that you could even get to 500hp with the stock turbo set up... If that was only a tune away, why not go the full distance and give it the 500+hp to begin with?

I am not really into the turbo whine, but man I would love for #230 to have the Leno hood.

You can go anywhere with more boost...1000s even....but you trade things for it....like durability, and fuel efficiency....that last one is why Leno's car was not boosted to the moon. 400+ is SS power, but it has LS/LT fuel economy...exactly what Leno said he wanted to see.

just personally when i think about American muscle cars i think about supercharged v8s.

I love the look of the leno car though.

You can but not with the stock set up. Eventually you'll run into a wall and need to start doing more than just tuning the car to make more power, plus the 3.6 isn't exactly a large engine.

I agree. I mentioned internals (forged rotating assembly, etc) in my post...with that, and some tuning...500hp is more than reasonable, I think.

Yea absolutely, but your going to do a good deal to the engine to get it there. It's possible, but it's not as simple as just turning it up.


This reminds me a lot of the engine in the 335i, twin turbo V6 which with just a tune can put down 400hp+. But before you can make the jump to 500+ you've got rebuild a good deal to let the car handle the extra boost/power.
