With all of the internet trolls who do their best to out new product images from manufacturers these days, it is becoming rare for an auto manufacturer to surprise the media at a show. Couple that with the latest trend of launching cars at other venues before the show and media day reveals can be somewhat of an afterthought.
It was surprising then that General Motors was actually able to surprise the press when they unveiled an unexpected treat. Finally, the Z/28 moniker is returning to the Camaro line up, this time as a kick ass track day machine. Think A/C, radio and sound deadener delete, along with big brakes, big cubes (427 of them) and big-ish horsepower. With the weight savings, 500 horsepower should be just about right.
While they were not surprises, the media were also wowed by the Subaru WRX concept and the Jaguar XKR-S GT. More subtle, but definitely packing a bigger punch was the Porsche 911 GT-3, sitting along Jerry Seinfeld’s ’64 911. Of course SRT had the new Viper on display too.
