Even if it gets more power than CTS-V, I think the 6L90 in that car will make if over to Z28. I'm sure they could save some money on validation and all that good stuff by keeping Z28 a manual tranny, but I don't think it makes as much sense. I see people comment on the GT500 not having an auto', so I think there is a market for a slushbox Z28. IMVHO.

ummmm..... did any of you guys read that article?

They got the whole story from this site.
Quote:
It looks like customers opting for the upper trim levels on the Chevrolet Camaro will have to pay a little bit more when the 2011 models roll into showrooms this fall. According to a posting on the Camaro5 forum from a dealer employee, the 2LT and 2SS models will see a $350 price increase to $28,075 and $35,145, respectively. The LS, 1LT and 1SS models will carry over the 2010 prices so the 2011 Ford Mustang will retain a $535 for the V6 and $1,300 advantage for the V8 models.

The more interesting news is the apparent confirmation from General Motors' new VP of Global Vehicle Engineering, Karl Stracke to Motor Trend that the Z/28 will become a reality. Chevrolet officials have declined to comment on the matter, but we're guessing that it might appear sometime next year as a 2012 model. Motivation will likely be provided by a variant of the supercharged 6.2-liter LSA V8 found in the Cadillac CTS-V, with around 550 horsepower being channeled through a six-speed manual gearbox.

anyway, while we are discussing this. I want to get a Z28, but I will not if it's manual only.

I want my SS to be manual and the Z28 to be auto. No other ifs and buts about it for me. That's just a personal choice though.
