Its not that anyone is complaining that its not coming out, at least I'm not. Personally would like to hear if they are working on one thats all just like they are working on a vert. Its as simple as that. No one wants to argue about this, I'm just stating my thoughts.

I do agree a good place to advertise a monster Camaro would be Transformers 2 in July-ish... and then come out with the monster at the end of that year.

No one needs to get mad, we are all humane and we can discuss our thoughts right?

Not saying not to have packages (stereo, appearance, etc) but why not have the car itself be an RS, call the package whatever you want or just call it a coupe, anything "Camaro like" but LS/LT.

Also, I wouldn't expect a Z28 within the first year of launch. You only live once. The Camaro is back, so go out and buy that SS.
You bring up a good point. Lets assume we knew the monster Camaro was coming out and we knew that two years later there would be better one, say 630 hp. Would we wait 3 years?

Personally I would not. I'd get the first Monster and live with that. All I want is a great top of the line or "near the top" vehicle... and right now thats an SS, but of course who knows when a supercharged Camaro will come. I will wait, the good news is that when you can actually go out and buy an SS, there will be information on the monster whether its a "go" or "no go"

Sorry, just venting a little.
Like jmliptak said, the Corvette is split up into 4 different levels of "LT". So will the Camaro, but unlike the Cobalt, Impala, etc; it won't be referred to or badged an "LS" or "LT", its just an option group; no need to get upset over it.

Dude, there are any number of us on this board that had Camaro's before you were born...Don't worry, it will come, and when it does the delay will mean that much more time to make it even cooler...Its funny how your perception of time changes as you age and how your definition of forever changes...I have been there...I only got my first Camaro after the Fiero (yes, I ordered one) did not come in after 9 months because the supplier that made the alloy wheels on the nicer trim model went bankrupt. This will be Camaro number 5, so while the wait was VERY PAINFUL it worked out great and we one here today talking about the NEW Camaro....Nothing to be ashamed or feel bad about, age is all in your mind, and that is indeed where MY problem lies....

I WANT A FACTORY INSTALLED SUPERCHARGER THAT COMES FROM GM THAT I KNOW WILL WORK IN THE CAR EVERY TIME I TURN THE KEY. BUT IF IT DOESNT WORK I CAN TAKE THAT BITCH BACK AND HAVE THEM FIX IT

Thanks for that Chris.
My conclusions? There will not be a Z28 right off the bat. We can go no further than that in our speculation.

and late to the game but it seems like the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing in this situation. scott stated it was down the road for info on the Z28. and she says no z28. . .so now ask the question is it down the road and she might give a different answer. probably the question was about launch trim levels.
