Camaro junkies and muscle car fans have something new and big to look forward to. Ever since the current Camaro has seen the light of day, rumors have been rigorously bouncing back and forth surrounding the potential revival of some very well-known trademarked names. One of them is the much revered Z28 nameplate for the Camaro, which apparently has just seen a filing in the United States Patent Office, thanks to General Motors.
According to GMAuthority, the fansite stumbled upon a US trademark application issued by General Motors for the “Z28” nameplate. Of course, put two and together, and I think you know what that can spell.
At the time of the Camaro ZL1’s release last year in February of 2011, Camaro fans were shocked that GM didn’t call it a “Z28.” Though staff at General Motors apparently told many publications that a Camaro Z28 was still in the works. This recent trademark application could stand as proof that it certainly is on the way.
Though because the Camaro lineup is already jampacked with a variety of trim levels—V6, SS, 1LE, and ZL1—it’s hard to guess what GM might have in store. Only time will tell.
