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

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.
