It hasn’t been confirmed we will see a Z/28 variant of the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro but, if the Camaro team wants to further stick to the guys and gals over at the blue oval, you can bet we will see one.
Autoblog has rendered up what a new, 2017 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 could look like after taking in the styling elements from the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro as a whole. The render was based on an evolutionary, not revolutionary, approach. That’s understandable, noting the 2016 Camaro didn’t depart drastically from its Zeta-based styling, despite switching to the Alpha platform for its newfound capabilities.
Here we have all of the standard Z/28 bits in place, but with a refined look. The giant front splitter returns, the tailpipes have been sized up for aggression, and Autoblog has added in a true brake cooling duct. Carbon fiber pieces remain, too, including the rear lip spoiler for aerodynamic improvements.
Although not part of the render, the imagined 2017 Camaro Z/28 is brought forth with 6.2-liter LSA V8 engine power. The engine was last seen in the previous-generation Cadillac CTS-V, and currently serves its purpose for our blokes down under for HSV’s Gen-F2 lineup of Holden Commodore based sport saloons.
We think it’s a pretty well executed look at what could be a 2017 Camaro Z/28. Because, as some say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
