So it seems like an eternity since talks about the return of the Camaro were initiated. If you are like me and knew the reason why they discontinued it in the first place, then you have been anticipating this moment since the last Camaro rolled out of the factory in 2002. But finally word is that GM has sent dealers the prep sheets for deliver of the Camaro’s. Soon we will be able to see them hit the road. If we are lucky enough we will also get Z/28, which is basically done but GM is thinking twice about releasing. Basically GM’s product planning is asking, not if they should build it but ” is this a vehicle we should be seen to be building?” Chalk it up to Hippies ruining the day once again.
The car features a new hood with a large, forward-facing scoop. Underneath is the 6.2-liter supercharged LSA V-8 that also powers the Cadillac CTS-V, which has been confirmed to deliver 556 horsepower at 6100 rpm and 551 pound-feet of torque at 3800 rpm.
With this engine this Z/28 could be the fastest Chevy ponycar since the legendary ZL-1-powered COPO 9560 Camaros built 40 years ago.
