Could this be the new Z/28?

Sounds like Chevy is testing a Camaro with a louder engine at their proving grounds. Could it be a Z/28?

I guess we have to wait until we see camo cars driving around.

Interesting read. Hopefully this guy can snap a couple pictures of these heavily camo'd cars and maybe a video to show just how loud these test mules are. I know a few chest-pounders and purists wont like a FI Z/28 but why not? Its clearly the most efficient way to make power (And they sound bad ass!).

I still haven't forgotten about the car that was spotted last winter in Michigan wearing ZL1 1le wheels w/ Pirelli Sottozero winter tires, tail lamps and front bumper with dive planes. The strange part about that car was that it was armed with MASSIVE Carbon Ceramic brakes never before seen on a 6th Gen. It also didn't have a 1LE spoiler.

Something is in the works, I can't wait to see what the GM Performance Skunkworks has cooked up for us next.

Chevy is supposed to be offering a bigger gas engine for the heavy duty trucks. Maybe they will offer a performance version for the camaro.

Or. The 7th Gen is done including a Z/28 so they sent him over to rock out their EV product.

416 CID seems to be the easy bore/stroke combination for the Gen 5 powerplant. The current cylinder head/ intake manifold design would require a lot of engineering to go bigger bore and proportionate gains from what I understand.

I am waiting for the aftermarket to catch up with goodies for the LT1/LT4 engines. Seems like there it 10 times as many parts for the "old" LS motors.

Or the 6th Gen is selling like absolute crap so they brought someone else in to finish a Z28 that will look good. I bet the Auto LT5 Z28 is going to be a monster.
