Any word on whether GM will release the Z28?

motortrend had an article today talking about the convert and the Z28. Chevy is worried about how they would be perceived launching a car that gets 13 city 19 hwy after they begged for money from the government.

You got the money already, screw em. Bring out the GT500 queen of the road killer and tell obama and the boys to go "stimulate" themselves

To cancel the Z28 would be a huge mistake for an already troubled company...i know there are many out there like me waiting this year out in anticipation of a 500hp Z28.

If they do skip its production, then they need to offer an alternative for SS buyers such as a camshaft upgrade boosting 480hp.

I am still going to wait this year out and see....this news is very disappointing!!

Sorry, but if you are expecting a Z/28 out this year, you're gonna be disappointed. I think we will see it, but at this point to expect it sooner than mid-2010 at the earliest, just isn't realistic. I'm happy to be getting any Camaro at this point...if the car wasn't as far along as it was when the economy went into the crapper, it probably would have been put on hold or canceled.

If more power is what you want...just buy an SS and add a few goodies to it.

Hi,
i was referring to the z28 for 2011, i didnt expect one this year, but that would have been nice. Since GM already has a part number for the cam changed engine, they should offer that engine as an option for SS owners. So owners dont have to pull a new motor apart to swap the cam out.

Anyone have an idea if the 426hp dyno was with the standard manifolds or shorty headers? Exhaust upgrade will be a must for me!!

The 426 is SAE certified so it is with the factory manifolds and accessories IIRC. So it's basically a corked 450HP engine.
