A Z28 was never about pure power and acceleration. The 5th Gen will be no different.

Thats a Berlinetta, not a Z28.

I already have a deposit on the first one to be ordered when they come out. Yes, I'd sell my 2010 SS for a Z.

If I had an SS, or were to get impatient and get one before Z28 came out, I'd say no. I think I could build a car, like Hennessey or Lingenfelter, for example, out of SS to be better in total performance than what I hope a Z28 will be. I think, for a little less than $50K, I could do it. Now, it won't have a warranty, and I wouldn't have the same sort of confidence with that car as I would with Z28 to last past 100K miles, but I don't really plan on DD'ing it anyways, so that point is almost moot. There are just things that GM will think of that the aftermarket might not completely address - that's all...

I would agree, but they better do some tweaking to the LSA is they want to have bragging rights in the power output though and they better find a way to put the car on a diet. The 2011 GT500, let alone a 2012, is going to shed about 150-200lbs over the current 2010 model and without a power steering pump, parasitic drag is going to be reduced, as well. That alone could likely allow the current 5.4 engine achieve around 10-15hp at the crank over the 540hp it makes now.

I still think the LSA would have better torque, however, so even if they ended up with the same 556hp, the additional torque of the LSA would probaby be offset by the lighter weight of the GT500. Shed a couple of hundred pounds of the Camaro though.....

Possibly if my 2SS gets totalled or something. Otherwise I think I'll stick to my guns.

I was a little disappointed when I ordered the 2SS last spring, that there was no Z/28 version. I would have bought it then hands down. So, yes. When and If they release the Z/28. I will buy it.

the only thing about the Z28 that i find would be better is the LSA has a warranty, whereas we strap a blower on the LS3/L99 and it's warranty void.

unless GM will offer a similar blower with a warranty for us guys looking to upgrade to that power level and maintain a warranty?

I say no.
Price which would most likely be in the 50k's would not justify the power.
You can take a SS and supercharge and most likely be at the same power if not more for less money. Now it would be nice to say " I have a Z-28" but not worth the difference in cost to me. And most parts will most likely be interchangable as far as appearance goes.
