I work at a chevy dealership and ours also says it's gonna be a 2012. so we are looking at mid to late 2011 for Z28s just like all other models. so early 2011 is correct for orders. it may take a while for production to get going depending on how diff. the Z28 is from the v-6 &v-8 camaros. we will see hmm.

My dealer also just confirmed some questions I had for him. The post a month or two ago said that Z28 driveshafts were ordered by the team working on the Z28, this is true. Also the style of the Z28 should look alot like the picture from Motor Trend and the model that was pictured with the Convertible next to it a couple of months ago. It was a silver one in the pic with black or cyber gray stripes on the roof and hood. And, lastly the images of the White prototype car on the track is infact a pre-pro Z28, which if you look close enough to the grill looks very similiar to the Motor Trend pic and the model shown in the other pic. It is a heritage cross shaped grille!

It sure would be nice to be able to get a 1SS version of the Z/28 for +10K over the 1SS or about 42K!! They would have a hit on thier hands!!

While it's hard to disagree with you I don't think the Z28 is meant to be the type of hit the SS is in the automobile industry. It will be a car that is not mass produced like the SS. It will be GM's answer to the GT500 which is also not mass produced. It is meant to be a rare brute.

I can see the Z28 starting somewhere in the $43k-$45k range. It will no doubt be a bargain for what it is. But it is not meant to be a hit in my mind, the SS is for the everyday guy, affordable and attainable by most in today's market where the average car purchase is somewhere around $29k-$31k. The Z28 is not going to be as attainable, but it will be a bargain performer that is attainable to alot of people looking for cars that perform similiar in other or the same class.

The New Z or ...

This is supposed to be Bumble Bee for the 3rd Transformer's movie, but is it also the new Z28? It obviously has some Leno bits, but wouldn't GM use the movie to market the Z28 just like it has for the Camaro in general? HMMMMMMMMMM!

Gm used Transformers in 2006 to market the 2010 Camaro. The movie came out 3 years prior to the release of the actual production car. So I suspect that the Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen Bumblebee is the Z28 which will be released in 2011 as a 2012. It has the same design and style as the anticipated Z28 sketches from Motor Trend and GM diecast car models.

Now this new Bumblebee from T3 could easily be an homage to the Jay Leno Camaro simply because he is an enthusiast and the car has gotten alot of attention from aftermarket companmies. Or it could be to see how the public reacts to it maybe for a future 4-cyl turbo or V6 turbo model to replace the V6 we have now. I wouldn't be shocked if this was GM's thinking. The truth is Ford just made big strides over their previous V6 in the Mustang to bring it to the Camaro's level.

Now when the Camaro came out the V6 had almost as much HP as the outgoing V8 Mustang GT. Could GM use that same strategy when they give bumps of power to the V8 and V6 in the coming years? Maybe. Have a V6 Turbo with similiar HP to the Mustang GT and have the SS make a mockery of the GT and the Z28 and GT500 battle for pony car supremacy!

By the way my money is on the Z28 for "King of the Hill"

that might be the future stylistic direction for the Gen6 - not the wing spoiler but the "toned down" appearance of the front. Just like the 2010 Mustang toned down the raw aggressive look of the Mustang to be something more subdued and sporty, I think that will be the same direction for the Gen6.

It was said they want to get the car out with the Verts maybe even earlier. But Gm fully expects to have a Z28 on the streets by mid 2011.They also talked about the new Silverados with their new frames and design. Also the meeting confirmed the new Vette to be due out in 2013 (60th Anniversary) as a 2014 model and they also confirmed the new platform for the 6th Gen Camaro. The 6th Gen is probably gonig to be out 2014 as a 2015 model from what they were told but GM didn't go into to much detail on the 6th Gen. But, it looks like our Z28 is real and is right around the corner!

I trust my dealer and I know the owner for over 15 years and know he wouldn't lie to me. The times and dates are subject to change he told me, but he said a Z28 is no doubt confirmed and is being planned for a 2011 launch as a 2012 model.
I believe that the Z28 is definitely coming, everything seems to be pointing in that direction. I trust that your guy is right and the Z28 will have the LSA engine. I am sure that Ford is trying to find out what Chevy is going bring out and Chevy is doing the same thing with Ford. Unfortunately the people actually buying the cars will be the last ones to find out anything for sure. Thanks for keeping us updated.

smaller engines with FI and DI from the factory are the way of the future for automobiles. just the way things are.

So true, lol. I am hearing rumblings of a Viper powered Challenger, though.
