It's too bad they didn't do it in the opposite order, the way the 1st gen's had it: SS = big motor, Z = fast + handling with a high rev motor of moderate HP/Torque.

I say they should have put the LS3 in the Z and the Caddy motor in the SS. Drop some weight out of the Z . . . plastic front fenders, scoot the engine back 3" . . . whatever. Get it lighter and balanced.

Eh, whatever. Most non-Camaro-nut folks don't even know that it was "only" the 302 in all 60's Z's . . . so I guess it doesn't really matter which was it rolls anyway.

Still, cool news.

Agree with that remark. If the GM made the Z/28 ligt on its feet with CTS-V suspension tech then we have a beast.

I'd put all cars short of a Z06 on immediate notice...

It will be truly disappointing if the Z/28 has a more powerful plant than the SS. And the hood scoop looks a little much... Cowl induction is the best, IMHO

I think that a high horse powered camaro has got to effect base corvette sales in a negitive way. GM should just keep uping the SS's HP a little each year and make the Z28 a handling package. The corvette buyers would stay happy and the camaro buyers would be happy. A 450 HP SS camaro for 2011 would be nothing to sneeze at.

The Camaro is not a threat to vette buyers...not even the current SS to the base vette now

I agree with you, but I'd like to entertain this idea for a moment...

You don't suppose that a Z28 what performs slightly better than a base Vette for a mildly lower price wouldn't entice a few buyers to "switch sides"?
