Funny how they call it the proving grounds. Now where's the proof?

Agreed, somehow we end up with pages and pages of wise-cracks in threads.

Anyhow... I hope there is some official word (even if it isn't much) from GM in the next 6 months.

I remember. It just seems like everyone is a little too quick to jump on the B.S. wagon around here lately. That attitude isn't what got us where we are now. I'm just sayin I have no reason to doubt his claims as of yet.

Courious, did your friend mention if just the nose was camoed, like in the photos posted recently of a Camaro on a test track?

AdamCzap, was your friend invited to the track where this testing happened or did your friend find a way to view the track from outside?

So Adam, if you showed him a pic of Robins Camaro with a LSA in it could he tell how similar it was to what he saw?

This corroborates the other thread where I remember someone noting the "exhaust blaring". Haha.. Well see if that makes it to production!

He also confirmed that the wheels are exactly like the ones in the cg picture they released.
hey man - I really appreciate you sharing this stuff. Maybe you can give your friend a list of questions that he can answer to his best knowledge:

1) confirm if the engine looks like the picture above (LSA)
2) confirm any side body vents, hood vents etc.
3) confirm what the rear spoiler looks like (does it look like the CG render? I hope so!!)
4) confirm any differences in the front fascia
5) confirm any differences in the rear

Thanks!

I have also said in a few post that a Camaro with a supercharged engine similar to the CTS-V is being worked on. I am sure this is true, the car exists. My inside source has confirmed the car as well.

Why? Would you trade in your SS if it were released in the next 12 months?

Your bud better be careful. I saw a show one time about how GM handles new product ,and I think he would be going down the road counting insulators if they knew he was broadcasting this to the world.

He said thats what HE would like the Z28 to be. But the only advantage it would have over an SS is fuel economy, maybe. It wouldn't be significantly faster, lighter, or less expensive to have a TTV6. The vast majority of potential buyers want a V8 of some kind and many of them prefer a supercharged V8. Why would GM build something other than what the masses would prefer?

Maybe for the same reason they didn't offer it right from the start

They don't always do whats the smartest or what the ppl want :(

I will bet you right now that the Z/28 will not have a supercharged/turbo what ever V-6. If it does then GM fell and hit their head because know one will buy one.

Its a smart decision for them to wait on the Z if they get all the people with an SS to trade up
