I agree. Love the rear spoiler - very retro and appropriate. Wheels looks good. Hood scoop looks good. Other than that, looks like a regular Camaro.

Don't forget the aggressive front fascia. It looks mean as he!! Although it could use a slightly lower front lip like the SS.

The general belief (for what it's worth) is that the Z will be an SS with Z specific body mods and the powertrain from the CTS-V.

I however, think that it should be FWD powered by a straight 6.

totally doable at what price? GM could make a 900rwhp n/a v8 for the Z28, but you'd be paying out the wazoo for it.

cause its not just hp numbers that they are looking at. its reliable hp numbers over years and years of driving.

I still think the Z28 should have this in it

-supercharged engine (top mount SC)
-lots of cooling fins on the SC

it's definitely in testing!!

He may not have taken a picture, but he can sketch on a napkin and scan it. Maybe it was a proto Hybrid camaro included in the test fleet to meet the CAFE standards which might explain cooling fins on a top mounted two-mode hybrid generator. Or maybe the fins were of an alternate camaro power source altogether....

technically... yes.

its nicknamed the "ultimax"

it was designed for marine use. also it has water cooled exhaust ducting and just enough torque to smoke the wheels at idle.

If that "H" looked anything like this "H" then it could possibly be a Hybrid Camaro test car.



With the economy how it is, I wouldn't be surprised if GM wants to have the first Hybrid Muscle car.
