    Z28 Prototype on Nurburgring.

    http://www.lsxtv.com/news/z28-protot...rgring/?ref=nf

    Any thoughts on what the lap times might be? Or what they might have stuffed under the hood? Since the SS has 426hp, I'm gonna say the Z28 will have closer to 500hp, since they're putting the Z28 back as the top dog. Maybe a supercharger thrown on?

    The early word is that the engine is similar to the engine currently in the CTS-V(LSA).

    ~556 hp & supercharged.

    I believe it's supposed to be powered by a supercharged 6.2 liter that also powers the new CTS-V that makes 556 horsepower and 551 lb-ft of torque.

    Sweet. I thought I read something like that a while back but I couldnt remember. I wonder how much of the body they'll change besides the obvious hood and spoiler changes in the picture.

    The ring is only about 45 minutes away from me....I wish there was an "insider" that would tell me ahead of time that these things were gonna be there!

    Can't wait to know how fast it laps the ring and what top speed it hits on the big straight. The zr1 hit like 170 or 180 on the big straight.

    It probably is faster around the track, the best time in a zr1 is only 5 seconds faster than the best in the GTR. That doesnt mean its better though. Its better at certain thing over the zr1 and the zr1 is better at certain things than the GTR.

    When is it supposed to debut? I'm pretty eager to see how this car compares to the GT500.

    I think it's slated to be released late 2011.

    It will be the platform underneath the new (~2014) Cadillac CTS, the (~2013) sub-CTS model (currently known as the ATS), and, according to GM, the 6th-gen (~2015) Camaro. I believe the only cars that have been shown on this platform are the ATS sketches; there has been no 6th-gen Camaro design shown yet. I can't imagine that would be good for 5th-gen sales.

    It will also be several hundred pounds lighter then the current zeta platform.
