Camaro Z28 canned

The new Camaro will not keep the legendary Z28 nam

The new Camaro will not keep the legendary Z28 name alive. Plans for the 404kW, Z28 model have been dropped in favour of a lesser, SS version to top off the new muscle car range.

The new Camaro will not be headlined by the legendary Z28 moniker.

Camaro product manager, Cheryl Pilcher, admitted in a recent interview the 404kW Z28 project has been canned.

With much of the pre-launch Camaro hype hinged on the SS name, the top-line model will feature double S badging and 310kW from a GM LS3 V8 engine.

Fuel prices have been mooted as a possible reason for abandoning the Z28 project, though some sources postulate the Corvette brand might have suffered if a cheaper cousin (Camaro) with comparable performance was allowed into market.
