lmao.

it doesnt say supercharged. it says "Z28 Camaro" on the side of the car. if you zoom in on the tape, and look Veeeeeery carfully you can see the O from "Camaro" as the last letter under the tape. and if you look even more carefully you can see a garish-blockletter Z as the very first letter under the tape. I will see if i can do some photochop work to show what i mean...

while you wait for me to do my photochop -- the Z looks very similar to this one:


(no im not joking...stare at the enlarged "blacked out" image...you'll see what im talking about)

Great news! So are we assuming GM is going to take into account that Ford will probably up the ante on their 2012 GT500? I mean, thanks to this and other Camaro sites, Ford certainly knows what GM is using as a benchmark, so I doubt they would just let the Z28 claim any top-dog ponycar status without a fight.

In any case, it great for us consumers!

I'm pretty sure under the tape says supercharged... it seems too short in height to say camaro. Oh and O's and D's look substantially the same when compressed like that. ;-)

well it looks like a new GT500 is 50k, so id say the Z28 will be 3-5k more than that.

I believe that GM/Chevy is looking at the big picture for the Z/28. It will be a limited production car that will be on par with the 2011 GT 500 selling in the same price range. Pictures of the prototype testing with the GT 500 definitely shows they are not afraid of going head to head. I do not believe that any of us would be upset owning a 575HP Z/28 with a five year warranty. As the Z/28 goes forward, there will be improvements in horsepower and handling because Ford and Dodge will be doing the same thing. This will continue until the government or the insurance companies clamp down on the horsepower race. Until then, enjoy the ride in whatever car you desire and hope that the Mayan's were wrong with their 2012 world ending prediction.
Z28 is bringing the end of the world

Isn't all this speculation fun? Yesterday, I thought there was nothing to the original shots; today, I thought I saw something, lol

I hope they don't plaster supercharged, motor size and all that jazz all over this car. All they need is Z/28. That's enough to prove you mean business.

Well its either going to say "SUPERCHARGED" or "Z28 CAMARO"

Either way its going to have some flashy on it.

The side markers aren't round though.., that's just the cover.

Z28

From a GT500 owner, bring it on! I think most of us realize that without the competition, there would be no Camaro or Mustang. Better Camaro, better Mustang, better Mustang, better Camaro. Not sure what direction Chevrolet will go with Camaro's but I expect (could be wrong) that Ford will look at weight next.

Congrats guys

Now if we can get the Chrysler guys to step up!

The side emblems both look different to me. Drivers side looks like CamaroZ28 because the back part is raised. and the passenger side says supercharged in all caps. You can see the E.

You better step up to at least a 2010 GT500 if you even want to compete with an SS let alone a Z/28.

That's what I like about the GT500. That's all you need to see to know what it is. That's what I want for the Z/28.
