Street Legal Performance (SLP) will introduce a new generation of what is one of the rarest Camaros ever, the Panther, for 2012. Only 100 of these supercharged Panthers will be produced, coming in ZL560, ZL585, and ZL600 performance trims and available in coupe or convertible forms and with manual or automatic transmissions. SLP will limit the LS7-based 700-hp version, which could be the future arch nemesis of the 650-hp 2013 Ford Mustang GT500, to only 45 units. If the new 700-hp SLP Panther can destroy the 2013 GT500, it will live up to its predecessor’s reputation as a “Mustang killer.”
All of these supercharged V-8 Panthers will use a TVS 2300 supercharger and come equipped with a stainless-steel axle-back exhaust system and sportier suspension package. Each vehicle will share exterior features such as Panther badges, carbon-fiber graphics, a functional rear lip spoiler, and grille inserts. The ZL600 features an optional SLP front splitter and a new hood.
The 2012 SLP Panther will only be offered in black, like the infamous ‘67 Black Panther, and will provide the performance and head-turning styling true to its nameplate. It will be available through Chevrolet dealerships nationwide with a full powertrain warranty.
