Supercharger coming soon, 2011

I just read an article that the supercharger was going to happen. Thats got Z-28 written all over it ? How much more than 2SS do you think we're talking ?

Even if this rumor comes from a well known source, I'd still take it with a grain of salt. As it stands now, this thread doesn't stand much chance, as is, to inspire any belief that a supercharged Z28 is actually going to happen.

touchy topic.
and may I speak for everyone when I say no one will ever believe you again if you don't have proof.
I know, harsh. Isn't it?

All I see are rumors

Quote:
Convertible versions (previewed by a 2007 Detroit concept) should be added during the 2010 model run, and a new high-performance Z28 edition is forecast for model-year 2011.
Quote:
So, too, the rumored 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Z28, which reportedly storms in with the supercharged 6.2-liter "LSA" V8 from Cadillac's 2009 CTS-V sports sedan. Horsepower here should be at 480-500. But a new Z28 is not a sure thing with today's gas prices and fuel-economy woes, and production will certainly be restricted for those reasons even if it does reach showrooms.

We have been told that a supercharged version of the 6.1L V8 will be released the second year of production in order to increase sales after the initial début

Is there a way that you can prove this is wrong? Or right?
