I'm taking delivery of what i "KNOW" is here now! Just for the record, I LOVE Z28. If it were out "now", and it had only 480-505 normally aspirated HP, I could easily have gotten it instead of the ZL1 and been very happy. My main point here, is, the long wait to Z28 may be met with fleeting realities similar to ZL1 availability. Dunno. Not to mention price increases between now and then. It may cost as much to get a Z28 in 36 months as a ZL1 costs now. (plus Im getting too old to wait folks - another story)

Edit: PS, my order is at code 3000 today, 12-21-11
I agree, I love the car now, I bought a 2012 2ss 45th, I know now that I love this car. Would I love a z28 more, yes of course, however the 2016 model may not be as nice as this model, sure it will be faster, but it may not be nicer, its all relative. There may even be a z28 in 2013 or 2014 or maybe the last year 2015 they will do it with an LS7 to boost sales, no one really knows. But I would rather be in the position where I have to consider trading in a car I love for a car I would love more than to have missed the boat. I'm sure there were lots of people who said don't buy the 69 camaro, wait for the refresh, it will be that much greater in the 70's. I bet those who waited wished they had purchased.
Gone but not forgotten:
