You want to talk about buying a 'new new' first-year model... I bought a 1991 Saturn SC new. A lot of folks warned me about buying such a new first-year model... I mean essentially zero components...

I'll believe it when I see it. The market for an ATS-V is pretty limited as it is. Very hard to believe that there'd be much interest in a V+.

Afraid? No.

But I do disagree with the idea that there's zero cross-shopping. Among the people who buy BMW's sporty coupes (2-series, 4-series, etc.), cars like the Camaro and Mustang are on the...

To me "late fall," means after Thanksgiving or so.... which would push your timeline back a couple months.

Mixed feelings here...

On the one hand, I think it looks pretty good... clean design, classy. Looks a lot more expensive that it will likely be. I predict it will be a hit for GM. Should retake...

Is it possible that the new car will have slightly more leg room than the 5th gen or the ATS? Sure, anything is possible. Is it likely to have significantly more leg room? Sorry, no.

A sunroof is going to cost you ~1.5 inches of headroom in pretty much any car. Fortunately, there's no way GM will make a sunroof mandatory in the new Camaro. Opt out on the sunroof.

Wow, looks great, IMO.

I think that the nostril-less hood looks much classier.

Hard to believe that they'd bother with quad exhaust for an I4, so I agree with those who think that this is a V6.
