There's no way this car will sticker for $20k more than the SS. GM would be foolish to price it that way unless it came with an LS9. If it's an LSA, they will be killing the car. I'd never pay that for an LSA powered Camaro. The car needs to fall into the $45-50k range if they want to compete with the GT500, which, with an LSA they still won't be.

Hmmm, if this is it, the Z28 is indeed a nice looking car. The problem I have is this:

The speculation is that it's the Supercharged V8 out of the Cadillac with 556bhp. That is a nice motor.

However, last week, GM announced the new supercharger, GM backed for $7500 and reportedly good for 650+ bhp.

I have had my 2011 2SS for 3 weeks, and I know what I would rather do, and that is get that GM backed badboy on there for $7500, rather than lose out on the depreciation of my 2011 already, and then add yet more money to the price for a Z28, which guesstimations suggest will be mid to high $40's...

That's just me. I just kinda see GM backing themselves into an odd corner with this one. Please don't get me wrong, it is a very nice car, has all the heritage and history and I am not knocking that for one minute.

I just feel the 2SS with the GM supercharger gives you the best bang for the buck in this instance.

Agreed, definitely around $45k-50k.

LMAO. This is just like seeing all the 5th gen mule spy shots.

I agree though. No real confirmation of what's going to be under the hood until it hits the showroom (or at least has a press release). Its like when we saw the V6 mule that had a radiator hose marked LLT. Lots of speculation about how many horses it would have, but no real way to know for sure until the press release.

Is the LSA the only 6.2L supercharged engine produced today?

Isn't technically the LS9 a 6.2 also?

So lets celebrate, and in doing so, think as we hit the "submit" button.

Thank you

Even if they go with another hood from this one, it won't feature a functional hood scoop or anything besides different appearance

I'm not saying the picture is fake, or even that the test mule in the picture doesn't have a 6.2L supercharged V8 under the hood, but this is not remotely any sort of confirmation that an LSA-powered Z28 will be sold as a 2012 model.

There's no indication of the year at all (2012 is a good guess, but it could easily be 2013).

There's no indication that the pictured car is testing for the purpose of being the next Z28 (it could be a ZL1 or any number of other things).

It could be an LS9 (unlikely) or even some other yet-unknown 6.2L supercharged V8.

GM could test for a month or two and then decide that the Z28 should get some other motor instead (I'm hoping for a mass-production version of the LS7, personally).

It's exciting to see -- don't get me wrong -- but this is a LONG way off from a "confirmed" 2012 Z28.
Well, if your car was in a GM convoy, complete with engineers, with a GT500 in tow and the pictures were taken by a reputable spyshot photographer ...

Besides, its practically been confirmed several times that the Z28 will have a supercharged 6.2L and will be a 2012 model.

I guess all I'm saying is I thought they did such a great job in '07 when the C6 Z06 came out by making it look MEAN and special compared to a base Corvette. I was hoping for some similar treatment for the Z28. The wide flares for the rear wheels especially made that car look special IMHO.
Z28's are all about form over function ...

If you think that the new Z28 is just a supercharger and a few badges, you're sadly mistaken

If you can add a supercharger, tear out your suspension and replace it with a better one, rip out/replace your exhaust, install new brakes, wheels, and tires, and add Z28 badges, then there's no big deal.

It'll be an interesting comparison for sure. The GT500 is an absolutely stunning machine in SVTPP form...handling, steering, sound, etc...so hopefully GM answers with that level of tuning.

Go back and read that thread. To actually make that installation you will spend over $10K. And you don't get the wheels, tires, brakes, and all the other goodies that come with the Z28....

I see it around the GT500 price range but above. Which is out of my price range after its all said and done. I wonder if they are going to come with the 3 year 36,000 mile warranty. But to be honest with you the Corvette ZR1 has a price tag of $108,180 so would it be far fetched to see the Camaro reaching into the 60's?

@DG, that is not a GT500 in the spyshot. Wrong wheels, spoiler, no Shelby lettering, rear diffuser, etc.
