My guess is yet because the cost is amortized over the course of a few model years and spread across 3 different models.

So, I think most folks would love to see an LT5 Camaro. History suggests that this won't happen (as the ZR-1 engine has not previously been shared).

There is a possiblity that the LT5 could end up in the Camaro anyway. With auto companies going to fewer an fewer unique chassis and drive trains, it could easly be explained.

Also, if this new vehicle was produced it would be a 2020MY at the earliest. And there will no longer be a ZR1 Corvette at that time, so the LT5 would no longer have a home.

Also, also, the timing would be great considering the timing of the GT500 release. Could be pay-back time for the 5th Gen ZL1...

Also, also, also, there was a prototype of some kind of 6th Gen Camaro with Carbon Ceramic brakes and a shaker style hood. (link:https://www.roadandtrack.com/new-car...en-spy-photos/). This could be a new hood to fit the LT5's larger supercharger.

Also, also, also, also, as for the heritage of the name Z/28? This is a minor point for me, so I don't care so much what they call it, just that they make one...

But, IMHO, I don't think we will see an LT5 Camaro. But, that's just my opinion, which you know what that's worth...

C8 Corvette is going to be less roomy than the Camaro. The Corvette is about to have a different market than it has in the past. The next reasonable move is to build a Camaro which can compete with it's competitors thus the LT5 or an upgraded version of something has to go in the Camaro. GM can't wait to make this move because waiting is costing sales. They are listening to the customer which is evident with the 2020 styling change. The 2020 Camaro change was rather easy to achieve and required not drilling a couple holes and a paint
change. The engine swap will be a little more involved but I can't see it not happening. Makes no sense at all. Number 3 in sales isn't a good thing. The Imports aren't sleeping either.
