Z28- Iíll believe it when I see it

I’m not trying to start anything, but after looking through different threads I’ve come to one conclusion- none of us know when the Z28 is coming out, and none of us know what it’s going to have for an engine.

Just my personal thoughts here- but I don’t think it’s going to look a whole lot different from the current SS body style. They may throw a different hood on it, but I just don’t see them doing a whole lot different. The reason I say this is because there aren’t a lot of changes on a Mustang from the V-6 to the Shelby, nor are there a lot of changes on a Challenger R/T versus the SRT-8. Heck- look at an LT Camaro versus the SS- not a whole lot of change there.

I’m as excited as the next guy about the Z28- I just wish Chevy would give us something to go off. There’s way too much speculation to keep it all straight in my head.

first let me say this. there's enough difference between a v-6 stang and the shelby that I can tell them apart going down the road. that's all you really need.

as for wishing they'd give us something to go off. . .well that won't happen till it's about to come out. within 6 months i'd say. . .and seeing how a lot of people believe it will debut in nov 2011. . .I wouldn't expect to see it till next june time frame. . .at least what it looks like and possibly the engine. . .no options info, price or base features. JMHO.

I don't think anyone said it would be much different looking, nor does anyone expect it to be. It will have some things to differentiate it from the SS, but overall it will look very similar. The convertible will be able to be ordered I believe this fall, and starting next fall
In my opinion you will be able to order the 2012 Z28. Yes, speculation, but from everything I have read this is gonna happen fall/winter 2011 for model year 2012. Anyway, I think the mystery is half the fun.

It isn't going to be here for a while. GM is planning to release it with the 6th gen Camaro. Earlier they had said it would be here for 2012 with the same powerplant as the CTS-V. Who knows when it will actually show up.

If we get much bigger rims/tires we'll soon be seeing farm tractor tires on Camaros. It's getting to the point that you'll be lucky to have 2 inches of sidewall between you and the road.

You can- but the average person on the road can not. Car people like us are different from the average car owner- we're all kind of sick.

Here's a much bigger and better question:

Where is the offical GM announcement that they are even working on a Z28 project at current?

Bigger rims, Not likely, Maybe a more nolstalgic rim, Crager or torque thrusts in 19 in

remeber the CTS-V with all its heft, uses the 19 inch rim. Its what they ran the record ring time In.

Obviously the Z28 will be lowered in comparison to an SS.

Gm has the perfect drivetrain/ driveline.....the CTS-v's its not a hard leap!

556 crank hp would make it a hair slower than a Zo6, but unable to match the Zo6 in handling and track duty.

It won't sway buyer who want luxury and all out performance. The V is there for them!

I truly beleive it will be very much like a CTs-v coupe....with less luxury appointments..\

Just taking the V's specs and lopping off 500 lbs , some of it being rotational mass.
will make the Z28 a superior semi equivalent to a NEW Gt500 with Svt pac.

Now this new Gt500 is what Gm needs to strive past. The V matches it in acceleration with a healthy weight. Imagine this same plateform on an Atkins diet.

If you can't wait.....drop your car and add a SC . i did. and am not waiting for Gm to do so.....you'l pay 10k more for that warranttee....i saved 10 k so i can fix anything that goes wrong.

6 in one hand / 1/2 a dozen in the other.

And I'm sure there have been people who walk up to a 2010 LT Camaro, compliment the guy on his cool new Mustang, and ask if it has a Hemi in it.

As long as a typical enthusiast knows what the differences are, thats enough.

I know I hate how you guys always talk about a car thats not confirmed no offense guys. I want it but its not coming for about another year or two. It will have different body kits than the SS like the Shelby and the GT no doubt.
