I've been wondering who can hold their breath the longest? We have a lot of members turning blue. Even with the wait, I can assure you that any future Z28 will be worth the wait.

Everything we hear about the Z28 is true, even the things that contradict the other stuff.

What I don't understand is why so many guys on hear are ready to have it come out when all you hear on this forum is that the GT500 is not worth the extra money for what you get.
What makes anybody think that the z/28 isn't going to be 50 to 60 K for the same type of car as the GT500. Just my two sense but looks like a big contradiction to me.

Anyway I hope it does come out in the next couple of years and is everything we hope it can be.
It will serve GM well if they bring it in under the GT500 pricing. I don't mean a little either. I think they can do a no bells and whistle Z28 for 39-40K or so to start out. Starting at 50k or higher will not be a good thing.

Exactly! This is way true! SS and RS aren't going anywhere when and if the Z reappears. SS and Rs will be for the MAjority of the People

The Z is on its way. You can tell by these spy shots that it will have a raised hood and larger front brakes. Possibly vented sides as well.

+1 Also upgrades for the Z/28 will probaly trickle down to the Regular SS and V6. (suspension bits maybe?) Besides by then the camaro will probaly have the gen V v8 as the standard V8 anyways, So I doubt anyone will be complaining about the HP the 2012 SS offers.

I want them to announce it just so we'll stop seeing "Will they make it?" threads. Of course if/when they do those threads will be replaced with the "Are you gonna trade yours for Z28?" threads. Ugh. I guess the cycle never ends.

I see what your are saying. I'm just thinking that if a bare bones SS is what around 30 to 31k, 34K for a 2SS that a bare bones Z28 starting at 40K would be doable. Remember that would be the starting price. Not to mention at this pricing it would surely take away from some of the GT500 sales. Yeah, I know, I probably am way off here, but, you never know.

Interestingly enough, these are being touted as pics of another firebird conversion kit...
