Sorry but Z/28 is to Camaro what Enzo is to Ferrari. Personally I think Chevrolet is making a mistake. When someone says Z/28, there is no question what one is talking about.

With that being said, I'm still planning on an SS

I have a feeling it will be a long time before we hear any good news or any news at all as to whether they'll even do a monster Camaro.

...at the very least offer it as an "order only" option.

Camaro just lost a bit of its soul to me with this news. :-(

Don't give me excuses about gas guzzler taxes, CAFE regulations and the like. They can make a world-beating ZR1 but not a Z/28??? I'm not smart enough to understand I guess.

Still a great car and I'm happy its back. Just had my hopes on seeing the Z...
+1 I DONT UNDERSTAND THIS BULLSHIT WHY WOULD THEY HAVE THE TEST DRIVERS DRIVE A SUPERCHARGED VERSION AND THEN NOT MAKE IT. WHO IS GOING TO BUY THE ZR1 ON THIS FORUM. NOT MANY BUT IM SURE MOST OF US CAN AFFORD A TOP DOG 550+ MONSTER OF A CAMARO. THIS WAS A WAIST OF A DAY . IM DONE

Yup ... but the difference between "later" and "too late" is quite thin ... and the GT500 looks good ...

BAD ASS, I'd race you in my GT but you'll smoke it no matter what badge it has...


No one refers to a Camaro as an Ss or Z28. If you go up and talk to a random person, try telling them you drive a Z71, Z24. you'll get the deer in headlights look. People refer to a camaro as a camaro ss or camaro z28. I've NEVER heard of anyone just say I have a z28...

Thank you!! It may be unfortunate but it's true. I highly doubt any average person will know what "Z28" means. Personally, I'm quite happy with everything I've seen so far... And let's not forget that, so far... Even IF they don't make a "Z28", maybe with the LOADS of extra options available (dealer installed and factory installed), perhaps a supercharger package is/will be in there somewhere...

No, theyre probalby equals on the org chart. Scott "organizationally" has nothing to do with Camaro. He's responsible for the Chevy and Saturn displays at the autoshows. Cheryl is the Camaro Program Manager.

I BEG TO DIFFER, IF I SAID I HAD A Z/28 PEOPLE KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT, A CAMARO. IF I TELL THEM I HAVE AN SS THAT COULD BE A COBOLT HHR IMPALA. THE SS SHOULD HAVE BEEN A PACKAGE FOR THE CAMARO JUST LIKE IT IS A PACKAGE FOR THE REST OF THOUGHS CARS. BUT EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT THE Z/28

STOP!!!!!

What exactly did Cheryl say???

She said,
Quote:
""There will be no Z28 model."
She did NOT say there will be no Z28 model for next years production run. UGH!!!

Guys, like Scott uses words, you have to put your own play on words too. He's not the only one, you know! Have faith. Have faith. Have faith.

There might not be a Z28 this year. BUT....it's not like they could EVER make one again! TRUST ME!!!!!

THE SKY IS NOT FALLING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!

Now....everyone take a deep breath.
