Camaro Z28 Canceled, Convertible Further Delayed

Illustration for article titled Camaro Z28 Canceled, Convertible Further Delayed

We've reported on the shelving of the Camaro convertible, but news has emerged the high-horsepower Camaro Z28 variant has been outright killed by the Carpocalypse and GM belt-tightening.

Paul Eisenstein at The Detroit Bureau is reporting GM is shelving plans for a 570 HP Camaro Z28. The reason? It would be prohibitively expensive for GM at this time. With a program price around $50 million, the Z28 got the axe in favor of other efforts.

The bad news continues as the convertible, which was previously delayed a year, faces the collapse of the German supplier providing its convertible top. The unnamed source within GM went on to note, despite the bad news, there's still a desire by the program groups to build both of these cars; but it'll take significant engineering finagling to bring them to market for the right price.

That's great, it starts with an accident, oil and obama, an aeroplane -

SirNotAppearing is not afraid. Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn -

Top Gear serves its own needs, don't misserve your own needs. Feed it up a knock,

speed, ping no, horsepower no. Fiesta movement clatter with fear of height,

down height. Wire in a fire, represent the Jalopnik in a music festival and a blog site. Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with Megan Fox

breathing down your neck. Star by star commenters baffled, trump, tethered

crop. Look at that fast plane! Fine then. Uh oh, overflow, population,

slow load, but it'll do. Save yourself, serve yourself. Chevy serves its

own needs, listen to your heart bleed. Tell me with the rapture and the

reverent in the right - right. You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright

light, feeling pretty psyched.

It's the end of the world as we know it.

It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.
