Hey - it will already cost around 60k for an ss in Europe - so you are already paying over the odds

I would seriously consider buying the car, but would take the badges off of it out of respect.

It's been reported before but nothing's confirmed. It sounds like it would've been one bad "asp"-kicking ride. I think the snakes would've slithered far away

Regarding the comment about it the Z28 was originally supposed to be what the current SS is now, and whether-or-not people like me would be pushing for an SS instead at this point, I have to say that I've thought about this a lot too. I don't know that I can honestly say that I wouldn't be lusting for an SS right now in that case. I can say that Camaro should always have a Z28 option, at least as much as it should have the SS. Afterall, the Z28 was always the performance option, while the SS started as a cosmetic upgrade originally.

I know it always comes down to just having a model that competes directly with the GT500 and the SRT8. Since the SRT8 is already addressed right now, that leaves the 500. I honestly don't think it'll happen, and even if it does in the next few/several years, it probably won't be the affordable car it used to be. I'll keep my fingers crossed, but at least the aftermarket support is gearing up to allow me to make the Z28 I would want from GM. GM GFX, Maggy' TVS 2300, Pedders, CAI, CB, and some wheels and I'd be one happy camper .

The timing couldn't have been worse, with the bailout hearings in Washington, D.C., and public scorn for executives flying around in Lear jets, the Z/28 was a "shameful" car that GM couldn't be seen building in the current environment. The Z/28 would've had had the supercharged, intercooled 556hp from the Cadillac CTS-V, along with a beefed up drivetrain, functional ram-air hood, SS stripes and huge cohones."
Here is an entry from the Ed Pepper web chat yesterday.

Rumors are that the plan for a Camaro Z28 have been postponed and worst case discontinued. Will we see a Z28?

Ed Peper: There are no plans for it right now.

Yeah - I caught that one :( I think I've exhausted every resource I know for the most current Z28 speculation/information. It's not totally unexpected ( okay - at all) but they've never commented on future projects. We've been told than many times.

I'm more worried lately because of reading in the PHR that I just picked up that all SSs have the GM Performance Division badges on them, so unlike the ZR1 and CTS-V, Camaros don't have a performance group to develop higher performance versions; at least to my understanding... I thought I remembered all SS-versions of other Chevy vehicles not getting further development because GMPD being shut down, so unless we get some people from the ZR1 and CTS-V groups to come over to Camaroville, Z28 fans may be SOL. At least we got an SS

homemade import. I won't pay someone twice the price for something I can do myself. Ok, I may be optimistic, but I guess 60 to 70K EUros is still possible

No plans for it "right now"

Keep in mind, Pedders suspension posted up about three months ago that they are invited to work on four "Special" camaro's in Auburn Hills MI.

What would be so special>>>>>??? HMMMMMM

Keeping the faith, one model at a time. (yes, I still have a waiting list!)

Scotty - You are an awesome member of the community - but you are not making me feel good about my current order if there are a bunch of "special" cars round the corner. ;-)
Guess us folks with cars bought this year will be keeping the aftermarket guys happy as we build our "GT500 slayerss" in installments

If you saw that awesome Z-28 on the lot you would not have any control and you would by it. Resistance is futile!

A Z/28 would be very cool; however, I would not pay $55k or more - which is what is will be, for the car. I am talking to a guy about a twin turbo for the SS for no more than $5k - that will get you to over 550HP.

I very much doubt a Z-28 would be 55K. By the time you change the tranny, torque converter, and suspension on your SS to properly handle that 550hp, you'd be into some serious $$$ anyway.

I never thought I would see an $80,000, or even a $55,000.00 Mustang, but they are here.

Lets hope if there is a Z28 it will be affordable.

Word on the upgrade costs, but My 2SS/RS out the door is $38,500, so hopefully I can stay in the Mid $40's when all is said and done.
