Yep, and after all of that modding is done, it'll still be a SS, not a Z28. That's just the cold hard truth.[/QUOTE]

Nothing wrong with that, I'll take an SS.

Fail. The GT500 is all Ford, designed and engineered by SVT and produced on the same assembly line as the base and GT Mustangs. The car does bear Shelby's name, however, as he was a consultant on the project and signed a marketing deal with Ford that allows them to use the nomenclature. Nobody from Shelby American ever touches a GT500.

In my opinion this is because Ford has no equivalent to the Corvette, that is the reason they offer the GT500, and because it got so much hype from the movie gone in 60 seconds. "IF" there is a Z/28 I think it's gonna be a turbocharged version of the V6. This only makes sense because it will add another Camaro to the lineup and not compete with the Corvette.
and you can fit 4 people in a corvette and enough luggage for a week long trip easily. . .yep. I don't understand why they would fail at the heritage of the Z28 in such a way. but that's just me. if the Z28 came as a twin turbo v-6 IE like the jay leno car I'd call BS. turbos add weight and the V-6 and SS weights aren't that far apart to begin with. so what's to be gained by doing so?

I would love to see a N/A LS7, I would be willing to pay the price difference for that. And maybe some other cosmetic details and interior details that were optional so you can add and remove the stuff you do/don't want. That would be awesome.

Those brakes look awesome, they just need to add some bigger drilled and slotted rotors to the mix...

Wishful thinking from a guy annoyed his SS won't be top dog once the Super Charged V8 Z28 comes out.

A Camaro will never compete at Chevy in new car sales with a Corvette, unless a Vette is introduced with four seats. Now compete in terms of performance - the ZR1 is one heck of a benchmark.

the LSA hasn't been decided on. that's just a general census of the rumor mill. GM might release a new engine in the Z28. we don't know because they haven't released specs or official word they are even doing it.

I was told the expected delivery date to GM was by the 3rd week of March and he thinks production will start in 2011. I've worked with the contact for years and believe what this person says because he's got no reason to lie to me and he stated this as fact. Sounds to me like GM is ramping up production of Camaro Z28 test cars! At the very least this tells me that a Z28 is definitely in the works and already under testing
Thirteen to sixteen driveshafts doth not make a ready for production model run......sorry another false start.

If this is accurate then it would be prototypes or best case perproduction (too small a number that would be 100). Best case it will be a 2012 model.

2012 models come out in 2011. and quite a few people believe it will be out next year. late next year. . .and that would be a 2012 model. lol.

An early release of a 2012 for a Camaro, that would never happen. When did the 2010 Camaro get released?

Really quick prediction.....the SS model will get the LSA and the Z/28 will get a small block 302......just a guess. The Mustang has the Coyote Engine so logically Chevy has to respond with a similar engine...hence the 302. Also the LSA can compete with the GT500.

I don't see the displacement going down until the 6th Gen. Just my prediction.

I would meet you in the middle. How about a 12 bolt with IRS and 4:11 gears? You can keep the rock crusher
