I don't think the issue is GM doesn't want young car buyers in droves.

The issue is that they don't want them buying sports cars in droves.

I've had a crazy idea or two related to this.

One was to take a Harley engine and wrap it in a mini-Corvette styled 2-seat shell. Small, sleek and super light like a Lotus but with a completely...

The best scenario I can think of is they're fleecing the early adopters while the 2017 will have more build/pricing options.

Alot of businesses operate this way unfortunately.

The only way I could see going with the 6th gen is if it was priced lower than the Mustang. They weren't creative with the body and it doesn't even look as good as the 5th gen.

All the track...

Well I think it's safe to say now that those goodies aren't free. Maybe it's by design? Price the V8 out of the "commoners" reach so GM stays inside CAFE limits and keeps the litigation lawyers off...

I think it was MUCH more due to the fact that both the V6 and V8 base trims started with 100HP more than the Mustang. This segment hadn't seen a 400hp stock...

Ya the RS looks sleeker without the taller "mouth" and brake vents. Makes the SS look boaty at some angles. I think the Gen5/Bumblebee/Stingray cues work much better overall on the RS.

The only major difference(that I know of) is the lower vents under the fogs to ventilate the front brakes on the SS. I don't see myself running it hard enough to need slightly cooler brakes.

Somebody made a good point that technically GM was also selling the Firebird at the same time for most of those years. It may have stolen a significant amount of sales from the Camaro.
