Is Chevy Planning a 750-hp Camaro Z/28?



Quote:
Everyone was wrong.

For months we’ve watched Chevrolet trot out a pair of Camaro prototypes – both at home and abroad at the vaunted Nürburgring – one with a pedestal wing and one without. Sometimes they whined, other times they didn’t; 'That has to be the Z/28!' we all said.

Instead of doing what we thought, the bow-tie brand did what they wanted, debuting the surprise 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE just ahead of Daytona 500 festivities last Friday in Florida.

If the ZL1 is already absurd, than the ZL1 1LE is asinine, blurring the lines between what a race car is and what a street car could be. Camaro chief Al Oppenheiser calls it “the ultimate track-day Camaro,” and who’s going to disagree?Maybe the Z/28, that’s who.

Big Z first hit the scene in the late ’60s as a trick way to homologate hopped-up Camaros for Chevrolet’s Trans-Am road racing teams. After the on-track success of the fifth-gen Z/28, we all just assumed we were getting another one.

Well we are, just not when we wanted it.

Still ugly IMO plus with that Honda rear spoiler, it's even uglier. Where are you going to use 500+ HP today? On the street? It's not the 60's or 70's any longer.

They are competing with the Hellcat - 750HP trumps their 707HP. The thing is Chevy's marketing SUCKS and I am an embarassed diehard Chevy guy saying that. Dodge has them beat or every commercial they do period. If they let that goofy bearded guy that does all the Chevy commercials currently pull this car into the room and drop walls and bring things out of the floor, it will make that Badass 750HP Camaro look like a sissy promotion.
