I don't know, we may see prices a bit higher than an equivalent mustang or challenger, GM seems to be going after higher ATP'S these days more so than higher sales numbers.

Well if the asking price is $30,000, I'm not sure how you could call it a $40,000 mistake. 2011's are going for roughly 36-40k, personally I probably wouldn't do it but I would give it some serious...

Well the Mustang comes with 18, 19, & 20" options, and the 20" is a 265/35/20. They seem to be selling plenty of Mustangs. Still hoping they got rid of the truck tires for the 6th gen.

Wow, those are incredible numbers for the Mustang and the Challenger. Camaro numbers are low as expected but these are the best sales seen in at least 5 years for the Mustang.

If true, at least the overall diameter is down to a more car-like 27.3", compared to 28.7" OD for the 5th gen 275/40/20 tires.

The pricing is appropriate for the segment. But that doesn't change the reality that these will likely not sell well at that price. They have a customer base from the last two generations of CTS-V,...

This is what I would do. Are they blue o-rings? If so, those are your typical fuel resistant fluorosilicone grade. A little bit of engine oil won't hurt anything.

I would skip the MRC if it saves some decent cash. Is there much of a weight penalty for the MRC? My biggest fear with this car is the price at this point.

Well, if you have 100 machines running the simulations simultaneously, then you would divide that time by 100. I doubt they made up the numbers.

Agreed, the majority of the show is hard to watch due to obviously staged arguments and drama. The cars are cool though.

Looks badass, I think they finally found the right look for the Cayman. Of course, most people will probably think it is a 911 now.

Well the CTS seems like it is a good bit larger than the upcoming Camaro, so comparisons with the ATS are probably more appropriate. Since the ATS isn't available with the LT1 or the LT4, whereas...

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...

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.

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.
