The reason the grille is different is because it's not a Camaro. That's also why they have both the nose and tail running camo. It's a limited production Trans-Am.... They figure if the Camaro enthusiests are buying this many cars in a bad economy, why not tap the step child. Sure Pontiac is gone, but they could just sell it as a Trans-Am under the GMC brand. Look at a picture of a '76 Trans-Am and compare it to the firefarter movie car and then you will know it is true.




Just figured I throw another conspiracy in the mix. I haven't seen this much chatter since the unveil of the original concept.

It's a good spy photo of a white Camaro on a test track with on the front and what looks to be the rear as well. It's hard to tell where the picture was taken other than what the photographer states. Also nothing makes me think this isn't a GM test car.
I can believe its Milford as there are some places along the many miles of test track that has some public access. GM knows that and has the camo on the car for a reason. They also know people are watching and spy photographs are some of the cheapest and easiest ways to generate interest.

Other than what is seen on the picture it's all speculation. But one thing is certain GM don't waste time and money to camouflage a vehicle for nothing. They can easily test suspension, exhaust and even a different engine in a stock Camaro body without anyone knowing. So whatever is under the camo is different from the current nose and tail and GM obviously wants it kept a secret right now.

Completely different types of consumers. My only concern is that given what we know about the 2011 GT-500 (its main competitor) I don't think the LSA will be enough to hold that mustang at bay. Sooner or later Ford is going to put a blower on top of it coyote V8, the LSA is not going to be enough IMO.
The GT500 is a DOHC 5.4L motor, which is bigger than the 5.0. It doesn't make sense for them to put a smaller motor in the GT500. The LSA should be just fine, and it is easy enough for them to add a bit more boost to it if necessary.

"...there seems to be some debate as to whether GM will allow the Camaro to have that much power." That's right, the Z28 should blow the doors off the CTSv; I meant, have more performance.
