2012 Z/28 Camaro in MOTOR TREND

So I got the new Motor Trend magazine today (September 2010 Vol. 62, No.9)
and there is a really good section on the custom Hurst Camaro. At the bottom corner of one of the pages it shows a 2012 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28... Thought it was pretty interesting.

I know for the past week or more we have seen new test photos, and even the speculation of the new T3 Bumblebee being the Z/28...

I wonder how legit this insert is, what's your thoughts?

Old sketch art, but it may be close to what the Z28 looks like when it finally comes out.

Not legit at all. It's Motor Trend guessing like the rest of us....except they happen to have a magazine to print it in.

They claim to have seen the clay model or somesuch of the Z28, which may be true. The trouble is that was nearly a year ago, and many design features could have changed by then. Nobody outside of the company knows exactly what powertrain they'll use...and on top of that, price is the absolutely last thing they figure out, so we're at least 6 to 10 months away from that announcement.

EDIT: "If there is a 2012 Camaro Z28", as Number 3 would say,

Yeah I figured it was BS like a lot of stuff out there, it's just crazy how they put stuff in there like they know exactly what's up and that it's a sure thing.

You might be surprised...CTS-V is heavier and is still a challenge.

you might be right however the CTS-V is a Luxury Sedan vehicle we need GM to build a shellby killer to insure the Z28 survivor for generations to come

It will be great having the z28 duking it out with the gt500. Two kickass American muscle/pony cars. Can't wait.

You would be surprised the Caddy at that hp is a hell of a performer.
