A very observant Camaro5 reader spied this single shot depicting an alternate future where 556 HP supercharged 6.2-liter LSA powered 2012 Camaro Z28s live and roam free upon the highways.

This future didn't used to be so far off, but thanks mostly to the failing economy and subsequent carpocalypse we may never see this bow tie warrior compete with the monstrous 2010 Shelby GT500. The top dog model for the mullet sporting crowd would have received a version of the 2009 Cadillac CTS-Vs 556-horsepower supercharged LSA, which in turn is a variant of the 638 horsepower 2009 Corvette ZR1 LS9. A larger power dome hood would have made room for the intercooler-topped small block while a larger functional hood scoop would have drawn in cold air to feed the monster. A revised front fascia with large intakes would have been used for functional cooling of both the engine and the massive Brembo front brakes.

All bets are currently off in the high-performance pony car war, but we're extremely hopeful that we'll eventually see this historic nameplate make an official return. Until then, tuners like Hennessey Motorsport and Lingenfelter will continue to build tasty alternatives.

I fucking hate it when they have those scoops. Sure they were cool and functional back in the 60's but come on. No car has an intake like that, and don't tell me it adds much to the cooling properties.
