Chevrolet slipped one past nearly everybody I know and is green-lighting the 2011 Z-28? The last I heard the division had deep-sixed the idea and had disbanded the team doing final vendor checks prior to assembly of the first run units (that was after Obama personally fired that insubordinate Rick Waggoner at the end of February 2009).

Apparently it has a 575 HP Cadillac-derived V8. Prototypes have been seen on the street in the Detroit area. I got that G2 from recently-retired former stylist and GM historian Brian Baker Monday evening.

I haven't seen any note of this in the car magazines I get, most of which are admittedly biased towards Pontiac but at least one of which is pretty non-denominational (Car & Driver).

Have I just been asleep at the wheel of my old Pontiac?
