Now that you have eliminated two of the worst candidates for daily drivers, you can start to look at your options. ;)

I don't know who writes this stuff, no way in hell is a V8 Camaro going to weigh less than a V8 Corvette.

Well if you had hit second instead of fourth at a high enough speed it would have been a different story. The inertia of the vehicle will cause the motor to over-rev, no electronics will save you in...

:rolleyes:

And those cars would all be faster in a straight line with a solid rear axle. The COPO would be significantly slower with an IRS.

You can also take the delta between the current 1LT (3738) and 1SS (3908), which is 170 lbs, then add that to the ATS coupe V6 RWD weight of 3540, this gives us 3710 lbs for the next SS. Hopefully...

I think the point was it may not make sense economically for Ford. The cost of aluminum is about 2x the cost of steel, and if they can't translate that into higher transaction prices for the trucks,...

More like $20,000 more than the Dodge, this will be priced in line with the M5.

Based on the released weight of 4145 lbs/640hp=6.48 lb/hp, compared to the Charger at 4562/707=6.45 lb/hp, it ends up being pretty damn close.

At the prices they are talking about, I believe the GT350 will be heavier than the 1LE. The 5.2L motor sounds like it will be impressive but I doubt it will put out more power than you have right...

The point is that power may be limited prior to a certain threshold or mileage is reached. Sounds like wishful thinking but it is possible.

They mention that the LT4 is not eligible due to the base price of the vehicle it is available in being higher than $60k. Maybe it will be considered in a future ZL1.

Agreed, my TBSS has 20" rims and only one size higher aspect ratio than a Camaro SS (275/45/20). That is ridiculous and unnecessarily large on the Camaro. Hopefully the proportions of the 6th gen...

Well, for what it is worth, they list the M6 and the A8 together and show that both hit 60 in under 4 seconds. So if accurate it means M6 0-60 is 3.9 seconds and A8 0-60 is probably going to be .2...

Are these still 20" rims? They really need to go to 19's for a lot of reasons, 20's are for trucks. I'm afraid from the spacing to the rotor/caliper they still look like 20's to me :frown:
