Post Rumors of Possible Z28, next gen Impala, and Silverado upgrades.

A Direct quote from a dude on GMI:

Quote:
I had the opportunity to get some details about the rumors of the next gen Impala. I was informed that the rwd plan IS the way they will go. I asked about the fwd stretched ep2, and he said look for the G8 platform. Then I asked about the 6 speeds in the 1500's. Sounds like some type of MCE will add them for 2009 (pretty expected). The next topic was the 6.2L in the Chevy's. It is very likely that this beast will appear soon, since it has entered the Chevrolet family with Corvette. It was also suggested that the 6.2 will power a performance version of Camaro (since the 6.0 will be replaced not really a shocker.
6 Speed Silverado? RWD Impala? Performance Camaro (aka Z28)??? In the Name of GMI, I must attach their most famous icon (multiplied by 6):

With the current situation at GM I'd be surprised.

That was about a year and 3 days before today, right? It's amazing how in one year, plans can look exactly the opposite of how they were said to be. I guess this thread had some meaning... Never get your hopes up too high.
