With a new Camaro Convertible on the way, can a true performance version of Chevrolet’s pony car be far behind? For the fans who’ve been eagerly awaiting the return of the Camaro Z28 there appears to be good news, hints General Motors President Mark Reuss.
In an exclusive conversation with TheDetroitBureau.com, Reuss noted that a close look at “spy shots” of a performance-based Camaro “shows my head behind the wheel.” While he declined to officially confirm what the camouflaged vehicle was, Reuss said, “yeah,” when asked if a Z28 might be considered a good guess.
Other sources confirmed that the Chevrolet Camaro Z28 is set to debut late next year, and that it will go into production most likely carrying a 2012 model-year designation.
A variant of the current Camaro V8, bored out to 6.2 liters, is expected to provide the power – which will almost certainly exceed 500 horsepower. Using modern measurements, it would be the most powerful car ever to wear the Chevrolet Camaro badge.
