See that's my whole thing too. IMVHO, I think it is not going to be possible to expect a car that is going to be substaintially enough lighter to bestow the car with handling way better than the SS. So, the only real option may be adding power and trying to minimize the weight within reason. I think this could be changing as we speak though with the cancelation of the BOSS engine from much of the Ford line so maybe Mustang won't even have a competitive model in the power range so there may not be a reason for GM to develope a 550 horse model...

I can see this point too. The debate of the Z28 being heavier than the SS, having more power and etc., is not the original formula. However, it's already been confirmed it's not dead, therefore, I think it's reasonable not to expect ANOTHER Camaro model, like a ZL1 or what have you. I'm not expecting GM to produce anything like Dodge's track pack or whatever the special drag racing editions are. I could see a 1LE package being available, but that's about it. Of course adding an SC is an option, but I could easily see Z28 turn into a GT car. I've read arguments that we don't need a GT500-fighter because Ford needed it to compete with the 'Vette. I don't know how anyone can compare a Mustang to a 'Vette in any regimin except straighline, but that's what I've read. The price of a GT-type car could easily encroach on the base 'Vette, but a Camaro's a Camaro and a 'Vette's a 'Vette. I happen to prefer a GT-type car - easy for cruising, huge power when you want to get a little frisky, and great handling.

We'll see...

Ok boxmonkey, your kidding me right? Ford dominated the rally track untill the Gen 1 Camaro was introduced with the first high RPM V 8 in which GM/camaro took over the track w/ domination for years over the mustang.. To say the Camaro doesn't need to be a GT500 fighter is to say a fish needs no water

I said the Z28 doesn't need to be a GT500 killer. not that GM shouldn't come out with a GT500 fighter.

Lol just to point this out, but anyone ever notice how the only times Ford dominates is when they have no competition?

go to the Z28 thread and explain to me why the Z28 has to be the GT500 killer. I'm not going to get into yes not yes not debates. if you have an opinion please back it up instead of saying yes it does. but in the right thread. this thread is about two sep. engine options for the Z28.

Being a slight history buff and in my almost thorough studies of all things camaro(wasnt alive or even thought of when they came out) the appropriate solution would be to put the smaller displacement engine in the car like the original z had, if we all recall the original z had the high comp 302(destroked 350 but high rev) and obviously the ss had the 350 and the 396 as options, so if we are on the retro kick and z28 lives then use the s/c engine, but then what do I know

its just a guess but, seeing that fuel prices are rising, 2011 should be a reasonable time to wait, longer than that and the possibilities look grim

also the LS7 sells as a create engine from GMPP, and some people are going to install this engine into the camaros, I know I would if I had the money.

In staying with GM historically borrowing something already resident in their high output Vette. I was in my chevy dealer's last week and reviewed the 650 HP powerhouse under the hood of the new Corvette ZR1 plumply retail priced @ $148K CAD....... a SC 6.2 Liter !!! or shall it be a V6 with a twin turbo package? You can bet that GM will tack on a pretty $7-9 G's for this comeback for the much touted and much loved Z28......IMO ........

Are we happy now ........ I will be looking at it in the Chevy showrooms in Sept 2010 ???? It is a mattter of modifying my already 3/4 paid off 2SS with an Eaton supercharger or maybe the SS will get similiar upgade to attract my fancy. Regardless; it appears Chev is commited to satisfying all Camaro lovers, past, present, and wannabees alike.......... IMO .........

There is a new Chevy commercial showcasing their next 3 (three) preproduction models; the Volt, the Cruze, and suprisingly enough, the Chevy camaro "Z28" ! Read it and weep there recent Mustang GT owners !
