You can't add mass without it effecting something somewhere. It may be faster tire wear, shorter lasting bushings, more frequent fluid changes, etc.. It always has to be accounted for.

Not every model Camaro needs to be a luxury coupe on the inside.. It looks like it's trying to be a ZL1 minus the LSA engine.

I think it's a nice start, but I personally would just like to see it go more towards performance considerations than creature comforts. 2LT/2SS and ZL1 are pretty much already that in the V6/V8 world.
Yeah, I remember the 4th gen 1LE didn't have accessories like power windows and AC, had bigger sway bars and a stiff suspension. That made it a pure track car. If they do it with the 5th gen, that would be cool...not to mention shave off some weight. Remember the B4C police package. Similar...almost.

Wishful thinking...but I sure can dream big.
