Any design forums?

Well...obviously there just isn't much interest in thinking/discussing anything beyond the moment. And I'm really not sure why, even though I've repeatedly said PONY CAR I keep seeing "I'm going to...

If this is the thinking going on inside GM management, that's worrisome. If "a few thousand less" is actually $8,000 less then I respectfully disagree about there not being room in the showroom. A...

I think the same potential market segment exists today that existed when the original pony cars first debuted. Yes people can certainly buy used cars but that doesn't make a dime for GM. They only...

So what makes more profit; 10,000 cars with a $2000 profit or 50,000 cars with a $1,000 profit? The share holders were certainly not very pleased when GM was filing bankruptcy in 2009 but...

If something is going to cannibalize one of your products, it had better be another one of your products. The Camaro is now no longer affordable for the entry-level buyer which means you no longer...

New entry model needed?

With the new pricing, a base 1LT with V6 and auto trans (no extras of any kind) will be $31k+ including sales tax. That means the Camaro has now been pretty much priced out of the range of...

Shrinking the main radiator may simply mean they've gone with separate coolers for oil and trans so the main radiator doesn't need to be as big as before. You can clearly see in/out ports on the LT1...
