    Do you ever think the camaro and the corvette would have the same hp? Zl1 and ZR1 both making 750 hp?

    Totally agree though the Mach 1 and Cobra didn't really compete with anyou specific Camaro model. The Z28 and GT were the best comparison price to price and the Z28 bested the GT by 55hp for years.

    Diminishing returns. All this extra power that cars are getting now is only being used to make someone's ePeen bigger.
    The 650HP Z06 has less top end than the 505HP Z06.

    The Cobra didn't compete with the SS?

    The SS made more power and tq till Ford supercharged the mod motor after GM killed the Camaro.

    But then again the SS was more of a trim package not a really special model like the Cobra. Z28 and SS made the same power on a dyno.

    I guess they competed but i personally feel Ford really handicapped the Mustang with the 4.6 for a long time till they figured out how to make power with it.

    Even if it made 727HP and 727TQ that would be enough to steal the stage from the Hellcat and still provide drivetrain reliability.
    My concern is that Chevrolet squeezes a bit larger rear tire like a 315/35-20 in the wheel well. The Z06/Z07 has a 335/25-20 tire for it's power. The Hellcat has woefully inadequate 275/40-20 tires.

    The 2017 Camaro ZL1 uses 285/30ZR20 front and 305/30ZR20 rear tires. Final HP isn't announced I don't believe, but I would expect 640 HP based on confirmed LT4 use and the CTS-V rating. It might be rated at the full Z06 650 HP, but I wouldn't expect higher unless there's some LT4 changes up Chevy's sleeve that the ZL1 is getting first and we don't know about yet.

    Re: RUMOR: 2017 Camaro ZL1 to get 777hp?!

    I was driving on I-96 for the normal commute, and came upon what seemed to be a ZL1 test mule. Badged ZL1, but looking well used, a Manufacturer plate; I suspected testing a new engine or powertrain.

    I see LOTS of Mfgr. plates on all sorts of cars, so I thought of this thread and pulled alongside of the guy who was running a set 70mph in the middle lane, with traffic running faster.

    I rolled down the window a bit to listen for a clue, and I heard..... nothing.

    I expected a slight rumble or more, but I was shocked to not hear anything.

    Maybe he had the clutch in and was idling as I passed.... but I heard nothing.

    I wonder if there's EV drivetrain testing being done in the C?

    Just a bit after I went by, he whipped into the right lane and exited, so I never got another chance to investigate further.

    Maybe I did discover something....

    I found this is being done, by someone else; and just maybe Milford is also playing with the concept.

    Maybe he saw me roll down the window to listen, figured he'd got made and bailed.

    I still can't link yet, here's the url though. Take out the spaces.
