AutoBlog: SEMA Preview: Chevrolet Camaro Z28, is that you?


Recommended Posts

Filed under: SEMA Show, Spy Photos, Coupe, Performance, Chevrolet


How 2009 is this? Not only are you looking at what we're 99.99% sure is the brand spankin' new Chevrolet Camaro Z28, but we got sent the picture via Facebook. Pretty viral (or whatever), right? Also, that Z28 is sitting on the floor at SEMA, and there's an entire posse of us Autoblog types heading out to Sin City so we will be up close and way too personal with this bad-mutha Chevy shortly.

While no one actually has details yet, we're 99.99% sure again that if this is the Z28, then there's an LSA under yonder hood. To refresh your memory, an LSA is the same engine that powers the very, very mighty Cadillac CTS-V. How mighty? 556 hp and 551 lb-ft of torquage. Not quite as brute as the ZR1's LS9 (638 hp, 604 lb-ft of torque), but then what is? Will the Chevy get every one of the Caddy's ponies? Most likely not quite. The Z28 will probably be slightly detuned so as to preserve some sort of outdated, century-old General Motors pecking order that no one outside of Detroit boardrooms has cared about in fifty years. We keep hearing "just" 550 hp. But again, maybe not.

Got lost in all the SEMA pics over at Camaro5.com for about an hour.

Saw at least two other GM-built Camaros:

New color: Synergy Green - pretty nice

And what folks over there think is the "Executive Express" version Lutz mentioned a while back: Very classy and understated in a very dark blue - nice.
