and I guess you would raise the BS flag on me. I haven't even bought yet because of the Z. . .I've seen all types on the forums and in person.

Trying to validate the statement, I started doing my due diligence on the license GM vendors who provide aftermarket parts and they are already advertising Z-28 parts, so it just makes you think.........Do they have some inside information?

Example: http://www.defenderworx.com/index.php?option=com_joomgallery&func=viewcategory &catid=28&Itemid=22

Should be obvious I own a SS, and if the Z-28 comes out in the near future, I'll probably get it unless the C7 hits the streets first.
That is one very weak example...any vendor can make Z/28 badges for the 2010 SS. And note, the website promotes 2010 parts...the Z won't be a 2010 model. Anything more substantial?

Don't worry the car will be built. These are probably the same people that said GM will never bring back the camaro.
I personally would rather be driving a new 2010 Camaro than a used Honda Civic for the next 2 years +....

To each his own..

No, I can understand simply waiting. What I don't get is having the SS already, then giving it up NOW to settle for my Honda DD. And dad, having a brand new GS stating, "What? The Z/28 is a go?! I gotta sell this thing and buy my kid's used Camaro." What??? I just don't buy the story, and if it is true, they are two of the most strange characters I've ever heard of.

Those Z28 badges don't mean squat. There will be alot of pretenders buying those badges and putting them on their SS's.
I wouldn't hold my breath on the Z28, just wait and when/if it ever does happen, it will be shown at the auto shows way before it happens.

Boxmonkeyracing, i suggested the zl575 cause you can order it from chevy and get a legit warranty. and from the looks of pictures the hood that SLP 575 is very close looking to the z28 pictured on motor trend which said it was a go but from then on no other updates.

do you have a crystal ball on when the Z28 is coming out what specs do you think it will have and price. I really honestly donno much about this Z28 but just a hunch i think it would be around the same price of a Zl575.

also if the Camaro goes to the alpha chassis, im sure they will make a z28 but would it be the same as the ss. Prob more like a cts.v.
this is all guessing

thanks for the history lesson. lol. but enough people in GM wanted it back to make the concept happen. once that happened and the reaction it got. It was going to be a no brainer.

but all I have to say is what scott said and kept saying "keep the faith."

Oh there's probably more to the story. no doubt. and what's normal? what's strange to me might not be strange to you.

just because it looks like it doesn't make it so. and what I do know about the Z is about as much as everyone else here. I just have had my head down and watching the signs for a very long time on the camaro development and all the rumors and even the slight slip ups of GM reps here. and there are many slight slips. sometimes someone calls them on something and they don't respond ever again in that thread. . .So I assure you the Z28 is real. We just don't know anything about it yet because the General hasn't told us. In other words I'm pretty much keeping the faith. read my sig. that was stated long before they ever made the Z28 section.

Motor trend could have just seen a car with that hood and assumed it was the Z28. Or SLP decided to go and make their cars look like the TF2 Bumble Bee. Lots of other possible explanations.

Smile Z28

I will keep my 2010 2SS RS IOM IO 6M Camaro waited since 67-69 keeping my daily driver
i am planning on building another garage though, if the Z28 comes out then both Camaros will have a nice quite dust free room of there own. in the mean time i will enjoy my 2010 Camaro until i hear what Chevrolet is going to do. if the Z28 is not built will buy another one leave the 2010 stock put supercharger suspension etc. on the new one take it to the track and "drive it like i stole it" i am having so much fun now i am afraid of being arrested!

Z-28 release

The Z-28 was slated to be released as a late 2011, but as of now got pushed back even further. More like 2012-2013. But G.M. still has it in the works. It will have the same engine as the Cadillac sts-v (556 h.p. 6.2 liter)supercharged. It most likely will only be offered in 6- speed manual as the automatic can't handle the power. Estimated top speed of 198 m.p.h.
