No...Bob Lutz said "premium priced". And that was completely blown out of context to infer that he meant some astrinomical price. It was a simple matter of unfortunate choice of words. All it meant was "higher than the Mustang". And we all knew that from the get-go (hopefully). It could be no more than + $1, and that could still mean 'premium'.

Camaro will be priced competitively with the Mustang. You can bet your life savings onthat. So under 30k is perfectly possible.

Guys, Edmunds.com is saying the price will be under $30,000, not GM. I'm not saying it's not possible, but it's still not GM.

I also heard, that the RS/SS look for 99 per cent like the concept. Is that true?

All in all, the Camaro rocks, but the design is sensible! ;(
One could only hope.

IT'S GONNA BE FAST!

Lets just hope close to the $20k mark doesn't mean quality close to the $20k mark. Hopefully this will be the most quality-built car in America. Is the interior the same as the RS? Does the SS come with the 4-pack gauges in the middle? IT'S GONNA BE FAST!

29,995 might be possible, hopefully it is but I'd expect no more than 32,995 if it isn't.

I can't see the RS/SS being much more than $800-1000 additional. You already have the spoiler and the 20 inch rims so it's just the tail lights and HID's.

The bigger change items will be HUD and premium sound.

I don't like this SS bumper either. It destroys the near perfect mixture of agressiveness and elegance that made the concept such a great design. This SS bumper looks kind of primitive. I know some people don't like to read this, but it's my honest opinion.

I'm not happy about this as I am considering to get an SS but this front fascia is a real turn-off.

if i'm not mistaken...to all you "i hate the ss bumper" people, GM posted on their website about A. different front bumpers available. and B. different grilles available. I'm gonna play around with that lower grill insert and i bet it would look better. its just too busy with all those crosshairs. something more simple would be much better. but yeah, i'm pretty sure with all the controversy a friggin' front end has created they will make it super easy to take off and swap out...if GM doesn't offer it themselves..

I am almost 100% sure that aftermarket grills (both upper and lower) will be available shortly after the release of the first Camaros. They have replacement grilles for just about evry make and model now as it is. Don't see the "grill" people not wanting a piece of the Camaro Owners pie.

Didn't they already say the the premium sound was just one of the differences between SS1 and SS2?

Base V6 -----------------------$19,735.00 210hp
V6 Premium ------------------ $21,735.00 210hp
V6 Pony Pk --------------------$22,485.00 210hp
GT------------------------------$26,425.00 300hp
Gt Plus-------------------------$28,375.00 300hp
Shelby GT500 -----------------$42,685.00 500hp
Shelby GT500KR --------------$79,995.00 540hp est.

You decide what you think is realistic, I truly hope and pray that the RS/SS comes in at 29K. I believe, IMHO, it will probably come in somewhere between the GT Plus and the GT500 and closer to the GT500 for the RS/SS. Your definitely getting more than the GT Plus in the SS but you may be getting slightly less than the GT500 with the RS/SS. I say less only from a hp stand point, overall the Camaro brings much more to the table.

I sure hope that if this logic is correct that the Z28 isn't priced competitively with the GT500KR
Also, Dodge had the following information about the Challenger on its website:

SE MSRP: $21,995
R/T MSRP: $29,995
SRT8 MSRP: $41,695

In short, the base SS has to come in right at about $30k to compete with the Mustang GT and the Challenger R/T. Sweet action.
