It probably is just me but seeing that there are many GM products in T2 like the Volt, Beat, Trax, Corvette Centennial, and the Camaro, could the redesigned Bumblebee be a precursor to some form of HiPo or special model Camaro? All the other cars I listed are future products along with Camaro (the vette is a celebration of 100 yrs of GM and probably will influence the next vette). I mean, looking at Bumblebee, something about the bumper and hood and wheels screams future GM product, whether it be a Bumblebee edition production Camaro or a possible Z28. But, what if a Bumblebee model was a Z28? That would be sweet.

For some reason, the front end of the new Bumblebee reminds me more of the Autobots symbol - logically enough.

Yeah, there's speculation about this, but many people aren't happy about the changes. The wheels, and facia are the biggest gripes from what I recall. I, personally, like the wheels because they look like the Concept 'Vert wheels. I LOVE the hood and I go back and forth on the facia. It's aggressive for sure, but getting close to ricey. Although, I don't think there would be a problem with distinguishing that facia from SS and LS/LT models. I'd buy if for sure if that's what the Z28 would look like

Yeah, but I do like that front end. It would be sweet though. It will be a wait and see.

I hear ya'. There are a lot of people who are eager to see their version on what the Z28 is going to be. I'm sure, in the end, we'll all be pleased with what GM has for us

What if the Z/28 returned in 2012 as a special 45th anniversary model of the Camaro, and it was the only Camaro model available in hugger orange (like the Bullitt is the only Mustang model available in dark highland green) and it had unique striping and Z/28 badging (of course). But it was positioned in between the LT and the SS in engine displacement, performance and price. Would you want one, or would you shove it out of your way in your rush to get an SS Camaro instead?

Sounds like a great place to START... As long as it has a lot of potential for MODS...

why would anyone want 22's on a performance car? seriously. . .20's are alright a little big IMO. but 18's are where it's at.

I would flip out on my local chevy dealer and disown GM if that happened. If any thing the z28 was either more powerful, or had 10 - 15 hp less maybe a little more give or take. the Z28 should have the bumblebee bumper, maybe not the color scheme so much, and a supercharged lsa! i pray every night GM makes this beast. if not ill settle for the SS.

All I will say is that they, being GM needs to have a gt500 killer.Regardless what its called.I personally have decided to wait until they tell us one way or another.
