  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Wild Horses: New Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 To Pack 650 Horsepower?

Recommended Posts

2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

-

It’s not Donald Drumpf’s tax returns or Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails, but the fine folks at Camaro6.com have stumbled upon the order guide for the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro. And thank the muscle-car gods that they did, because one number listed within the guide truly stands out: 650.

-

That figure represents both the horsepower and torque listed for the all-new Camaro ZL1‘s 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine—10 more than Chevy had estimated in each case. We’ve reached out to General Motors for confirmation or comment; however, we’ve yet to hear back from a brand representative. Nevertheless, we’re not exactly shocked by this revelation. After all, the ZL1 is fitted with the same supercharged LT4 engine found under the hood of the Corvette Z06 in which it makes—surprise!—650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. One might have expected the engines to make slightly different outputs based on packaging and airflow, but the Camaro’s engineers seem to have overcome any possible issues.

2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1

If the numbers bear out, it wouldn’t be the first time General Motors has pulled this stunt. Take the aforementioned Corvette Z06, for instance. Upon unveiling the more powerful two-seat sports car at the North American International Auto Show in 2014, Chevrolet estimated its engine would send 625 horsepower and 635 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels, but those numbers barely stood six months before the true output was revealed.

Chevrolet notes that the 2017 Camaro ZL1 coupe will reach dealerships before the end of the year, with the convertible reaching showrooms in early 2017. Buyers can choose to channel the ZL1’s 600-plus ponies through either a six-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic transmission.
