The cylinder walls of the LS7 are relatively thin in order to get a 4.125 bore on a 4.40 bore spacing so that would limit boost. If you want to boost something, definitely don't do a Z/28 and use a...

The problem is the more and more stuff they add to the car, the more engineering costs are added as well, so, while you may be more than happy to pay for a luxury Camaro, everyone else will have to...

I agree to an extent. The SS, as it sits, shouldn't have the Chevelle badge but with Holden no longer producing cars in the near future, the SS can be designed as a Chevelle for the next generation.

It's already here. CAFE and emissions regulations cost us the LTx 7.0 liter and gave us this bastard of a Z06.

The '14 refresh front fascia is way more aggressive looking than the '10-13 front fascia.

I really don't see GM building a ZL1 capable of 11.2 or less in the 1/4 mile. If the SS weighs 3,700 lbs and the ZL1 has 200 lbs over the SS, similar to the current cars, I bet it will weight around...

That rendering in the back looks more Corvette than anything. You can't see crap through the camo anyways.

Don't expect the 5.0 output to stay the same. In 2 or 3 years I bet it's closer to 450.

Not to mention the V6 is on borrowed time in the Mustang. Who knows how much longer it will be available.

You missed the words in white at the bottom. He said it was a troll post.

I'm calling 3,650 to 3,700 lbs for the base SS.

If there are heat extractors on the hood, they need mesh panels to vent it. Otherwise, the camo would balloon up.

This looks like a pretty advanced prototype to me. I was expecting to see mules running around. Hopefully that means a January reveal and summer to fall 2015 release is going to happen.

I bet it lands around the same time as the previous 5.0, maybe slightly faster. With the added weight and IRS, the power bump probably won't help much.

That's what I expected. Hopefull GM doesn't nerf the LT1 too much because you know Ford isn't going to keep those numbers long.

That's a completely different situation because the Z06 was naturally aspirated. The more relevant question is how much did the ZR1 make?

Of course I'm looking past the LSA making more power than the LS7, because it's supercharged. It isn't the best supercharged 6.2 liter GM makes either. That is my point.
