I don't think a Camaro is going to run with a Z06 or ZR1. Does anyone remember the speculation of an LS8 to replace the LS7? I imagine if that is the case, it's going to run close to the output of an LSA because why would GM only give it the same power as an NA LS7?... I could see either an LSA or LS8 make it into a top dog Camaro. Even if Camaro made the same power, which it wouldn't, a Z06 would run away in every performance test just because it's just a better performance car. There's nothing wrong with that, IMHO.

OMG!!! How are these NO Z28 THREADS STILL GOING!!! Do you guys really think that GM will never have a Z28 again..Come on guys! Some of you have begged and begged and begged for GM to bring back the camaro, and they have....now you complain that a trim model has not been announced, you say that you won't buy one just because of a badge...bullsh*t...

That wasn't part of the deal. You didn't ask for a camaro with 600 hp Z28 that decimates all, and then some. We asked for a Camaro and GM is trying to provide it even in the face of rising gas prices....

Get over yourself and buy the SS while GM puts the final touches on the car for the Vert, and the all American Badass......wait for it............Z28!!!!

I all of you, but this is petty crap to complain about! Especially on a message board with some people who have worked their ass off to make this happen!

some people are very disrespectful...however, you can't please everybody. If people want to get their panties in a bunch over minor things, that's ok...they don't have to buy one...but I promise you that they will be jealous when they see us riding down the road in ours.

Sorry, you'd better go back and brush up on your Camaro history, the Z/28 was not available when the '67 Camaro was first released in Aug./Sept. 1966, it was closer to a mid-year release with release to the press in Nov. '66 and it went into production on Dec. 29, 1966.

Read it again, she said "no Z/28 at the start of regular production", that does not rule it out down the road.

I did. little late to the game there aren't you? it's been discussed, and discussed and discussed and discussed over and over and over again. and I agreed yesterday shortly after I said that. because she did state for SORP

Well considering the thousands of posts to these forums in the last two days, yeah I'm "late to the game" as I tend to read every post in every thread I'm interested in. And I meant no "harm" to you, simply pointing out what was said at the point in time where I was in that thread. Perhaps if I take up speed reading I could get through these posts faster!

because the first gear is so steep in the manual?

sorry no one was helping my thread about what that meant, I figured maybe you could..

Guys and gals....I, too, am surprised the Z28 is dead thread (or dying, or whatever...) is still going on. This back and forth thing is ridiculous and the complaining....it is getting annoying (and I know for fact that there's lots of others here who feel the same way). I continue to hear an echo of, be happy the Camaro is here...stop complaining...I'm right and you're wrong....

Can we please just let it go for now and talk about what has been confirmed for a little? ...instead of continuing to talk about other stuff that will happen down the road??? (most likely)...

Who's up for closing this thread? anyone?? who wants to keep it open?

Kill it and then we can merge in all the attempts to open it back in a new thread and keep a count and post it on homepage to replace the countdown...

They can call it whatever they want, to me it's just a badge. The car looks like a Camaro, it's good enough for me. With the LS3 and a 6 speed stick, the herritage is there. So what if Z28 isn't on your deck lid?

Would it make a difference if it said "Chevy Citation II"?
