Cool More Horses

Hello Camaro fans !
I have Dreamed of buying a 69 Camaro since i was a boy, but them came the new concept Camaro.
I will buy one when they come out.
I want the fastest bad ass Camaro they make.
Does any one know if they will offer anything faster then the SS with the 400 Horses ?
Thanks, Rocky

I read in Hot Rod magazine that there is possibly a 427 cubic inch version with 505 bhp and read somewhere else about a big block cranking over 500 bhp, too.

Welcome to the site, Rocky! At this point in time, no one has solid info. Everything is hearsay or speculation. My opinion? I believe GM will put out something w/ enough hp to compete w/ all the rest....Mustang, Challenger, etc. I'm not worried one bit...GM will do us right.

Welcome Rocky

As for a 5th Gen. with over 400HP, I'd say there's a pretty good chance.

I read that same issue my friend. It was the one with several different puter pics of the front end including the hide-aways. If memory serves, they were speculating that the 427 would be designated the ZL1.

We can only hope..........but I'm a hoping.

Somehow naming a mass production Camaro a ZL1 doesn't sound right to me.

I wouldn't want to dilute what ZL1 stands for. Plus I wouldn't want to be a victim of price gouging like what has been going on with the Shelby GT 500.

If the GT500 was just called another Mustang Cobra I don't think the markups would be this bad. The same thing might happen with a ZL1

I couldn't agree more. When I said I'm hoping..........I meant the HP. I wouldn't care how it was badged.

At the same time, a very limited number of pure ZL1's would not hurt the image at all. IMHO.

Regards!! Mike

Yeah, I am sure there will be engine options available, considering there will be the Sports Coupe (with a six cylinder and an eight), an SS, and Z28.

Thanks for the reply. Nice Camaro. I had a 74 and my first new car was a 82 blue & silver Z28 pace car, but a drunk driver came in my lane and hit me head-on and totaled it. Take care if the sweet machine. Rocky

Exactly. While I am not holding my breathe for a 500+HP Camaro, I do think it would give the car all kinds of great publicity. If they did release a ZL-1 type car, it would probably cost a boat load because I almost guarantee it would be made in very limited quantities (to keep the Vette crowd happy) which means an already expensive car would cost more through dealer markups.

If they release the LS9 with the supercharger on it for the Cadillac CTS-v (as is rumored to be true) then we would probably see that engine in the Camaro (both would be high volume sellers that would spread development cost faster).

The 427 is a pretty pricey engine, ESPECIALLY since its only featured as a low-volume crate engine and in the Z06... but if they sell a lot more of these than maybe its the cheaper engine option... who knows.?

My guess is that we'll see 500hp pretty quick (since the Z07 vette is moving up to 700hp!!! ). GM has several engines now capable of achieving this number...

I have to just pause here and say 500hp, Camaro, possible.?

Now is the Golden Age of muscle!

Even if there is not a s/c'ed LS3 or LS9 option or a 427 or any engine that will place the Camaro at or above the 500HP mark, if all of the rumors are true and the Camaro gets the LS3 that is capable of 450HP stock, it iwill be SO easy to get that puppy running at the 500HP mark and.... AND it would probably cost a lot less to add these bolt ons than to opt for the engine upgrade!

That makes me happy

The problem with threads like this is that they get you all excited like you are 6 years old again waiting to see what presents you get for Christmas.

I can't wait to find out about the engine options.

I was thinking about winning the 370 Million Mega Bucks lottery last night and all the fun stuff I coulda bought when it came to the 5th Gen. ZL1 was the first thing that came to mind. Then, there was one of every special edition. Yeah...I would have moved from my house out on a few acres and built a special garage to house all my supercars. God, that woulda been cool!!!

One of the 2 winning tickets was sold no too far from me (45 mins maybe).

Unfortunately it wasn't sold to me. :(

Here is a nice hypothetical question..... If you had won the 370 Million jackpot, would you buy a new Camaro for everyone you know?

... For eveyone on this site (those that post regularly anyway....)


I would, i am generous like that....
