The styling is fine and meets expectations, but doesn't exceed them. That's the gripe for me. It is an opportunity lost. The front end styling is everywhere, even Camry's. I like the rendering in...

How much lighter for the GT350? I could find that the GT350R is 130lbs lighter than the regular GT350 (if you delete the AC). I could not find the weight difference for the GT350 vs GT.

Selling more cars at a lower price does not always equal more profit in total. If GM can sell fewer low mpg cars at high markup, then they win twice.
