Does any one know if there is truth behind this on the Z28?

Camaro.ClassifiedAds.comIf you’re a Camaro fan, you might want to look away. This one is gonna sting a little — or a lot. Put simply, there will be no Z28 Camaro. That’s right: the program has been given the axe.

Rumors started making the rounds on Tuesday of this week about the uber-Camaro’s demise. After doing some checking around with very well placed sources, we’re afraid those initial rumblings are true.

The Z/28 was set to feature the fire-breathing LS8 motor. A 6.2L, small block V8 with a roots-style supercharger that was supposed to be good for 500 to 550 horsepower. With the Z28 put out to pasture, the SS model will now be the top dog. In the Camaro Super Sport’s engine cradle, you’ll find the LS3 V8 rated somewhere in the 400 to 450 hp neighborhood.

Normally this is where we’d speculate on the reason for this move by GM, though, do we even have to say it?

Current National Average for premium unleaded: $4.507.




I know this is an old artical but I have never seen it till now.

They're right on that! Rumors.

The only thing that has been 100% confirmed is that there will be no 2010 Camaro Z28. Anything beyond that, be it positive or negative, is pure speculation.

If the Camaro does well, they'll bring back the Z28. They'll make anything the people want as long as they know they'll make a profit.

Given the current state of the economy, it's probably wise to hold off on the Z28 and test how the Camaro does.

You might say that the only 100% confirmed is no Z/28 at the 2010 launch, later is always possible (though not likely in 2010 is my thought). Who knows what could happen later.

LS8?

Seeing as how I've never even heard of that engine...no, this isn't true.

The author of the article might have heard someone say LSA, and misheard the "A" for "Eight."

GM did have plans for an LS8. Was a blown motor to be less than the LSA.

Never made it to the public.
