I'm on my meal break, so I haven't taken the time to read any of the posts, but man, does that car look good!! Silver is definitely a good PR color for the Camaro for Chevy (even though I'm still getting Imperial Blue). And I don't know if they changed it much or something, but to anyone who says the SS bumper doesn't look good, these pics just HAVE to change your mind...

Bravo, Chevrolet!!!!

I was one who preferred the V6 fascia, but I've got to admit that these photos have changed my mine. Now, if there was just some way to delete the goofy looking shark fin antenna I'd be happy.

why would you complain about the v6 looking just as good as the v8??? that gives the whole brand a better image
I don't know what you're talking about. I never criticized it. I hope they do look alike, except for badges. I was merely saying i don't see any difference, so i hope they didn't spend much money on differences to the front end.

Silver just makes the lines of the car stand out, for me there has been no other color choice except silver...(my username, my car in my avatar) I do like Black but Black is not a color, it is a commitment

To those who think the production SS looks too different from the concept, and I know it's already been said by Scott and many others, but regulations required several changes. Personally, I think the Camaro team did an AMAZING job considering what had to be done to make it street legal.

On top of that, I don't know who here has actually sat in, much less driven, the concept, but I'm sure in all of their testing and designing, the Camaro team made some changes simply for day-to-day driving reasons. I personally have never seen the concept in person, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was a pain to drive as a daily driver (blind spots and what not). I'm sure Scott could comment, if he hasn't already. Regardless, everyone here has to be able to at least admit that this Camaro is quite possibly the closest any company has ever come to making the production car look like the concept...

I agree, as for the changes for day-to-day driving reasons, here is a photo from Kevin Kolvenbach photo album showing just how "easy" it is to get in and out of the concept, look how far back the drivers seat is leaning so Scott can get out.

Agreed,

The Camaro segment from the Saving GM special on CNBC shows just how hard they tried to keep it like the Concept.

My only complaint is that the bow tie on the front takes away the aggressiveness of the SS bumper.

Dear trans am squad,
we will be happy to outfit your new Camaro as requested, the price for the requested equipment installed will only be $20,000 over asking price since we will need to equip it with a Bose radio, speakers, borla exaust, and have you rollin on 22's. We are only charging for labor...... honest.

Yours truely,
Local Stealership

I've been pondering over this for awhile now, and it seems to be the case with many of GM's performance oriented cars, but is 422hp a little, how do you say, "underrated"?

well -- we learned a long time ago (unlike some people we won't mention....) that there is this thing called a "Dyno" -- and if you advertise a horsepower, you'd better be SURE you can deliver.


If we advertise 422hp -- you can write it in Granny's Bible that all cars will have at least 422 hp with that particular engine.
