Further delays for the Camaro Z28?

Autoweek magazine is reporting this week that GM has disbanded their High Performance Vehicle Operations team effective Wednesday, February 18, 2009.

Per GM's Vince Muniga, All high-performance projects are on indefinite hold, all effected engineers have been redeployed to work on other projects. Vince goes on to say this program could be reinstated once GM regains their financial health.

Looks like a high performance version of the Camaro, possibly with Camaro ZR1 or Cadillac V Series power train is just one step further away from enthusiasts. At least to buy one new on the showroom ;)

Regarding the Camaro SS or Corvette models, GM spokesperson Vince Muniga has addressed this concern. He has told InsideLine; "You've got the Camaro SS coming out. It is not threatened at all and will be coming out as planned. The Camaro SS, Corvette ZR1 and Z06 were all developed as regular production models, and not through the HPVO unit.
Hence, all of these vehicles are safe".
