Now if a Gen6 Z/28 went outside the box and had carbon fiber body panels with a slimmer, lower front end, and built in aerodynamics in the rear, plus a 600HP Corvette LT2, then it would be unique. If it used the plastic body panel process from the Corvette it's weight might drop two-hundred pounds to say 3425 lbs. With additional aerodynamics and added horsepower it could be a slick piece!

Not trying to be that guy, but I doubt that we will have a 6th generation Z28 due to what GM is choosing to do with its budgets.

But, let's get theoretical. If something like that were to happen, it would be as fast as, if not faster than the GT500.

Note, that the car will be most likely slower than 3.1 seconds, as the spoiler will affect drag, and the car will most likely be a bit heavier than 3425 pounds.

Haven't read the whole thread so I apologize if this has already been discussed, but I wonder if the FPC engine that's going in to the C8Z might be going in to the Z28? Especially if they do the NA FPC (I actually believe the C8Z is getting a TT FPC).

It was reliably reported that the Z/28 had been killed. The fact that Al O is now on to electric vehicles would lead me to believe that GM will not spend the $$$$$$$ to engineer any of these suggested vehicles. Testing, certification and a host of other considerations would indicate that there is not going to be a Z/28 and a 7th Gen may be on life support with a priest being summoned for last rights.

This will make it end up more expensive than the ZL1... Just like the 5th Gen Z/28, and we all know how that worked out for Chevy sales-wise.

And that's the thing, track-oriented models are expensive because all the things exclusive to it, which means less economy of scale and higher cost. There is a reason M4 GTS is horrendously expensive. If GM does something like that, it wouldn't be that different. It's too expensive for your typical track junkies(which will just buy the ZLE that's likely cheaper than a theoretical Z/28), and it's too hardcore to attract people who can usually afford something like this.

June 2020 GM released a new 427 crate engine. I think they would put this in the new z28

Why do I smell a dual clutch camaro? I could also see a manual, but I definitely feel like it will have a dual clutch camaro as an option.

We can't go one generation without one Z28.

Scary that you'd say that, this new LS7 is only 80 down from our current ZL1.

Wondering if crate engines have to meet the same requirements as production engines.

That's what I am thinking as well, with the emission standards required on road cars.

Crate engines are technically competive use only.
