Uhh... you are kidding right? Actually the shift light is for the people who drive a stick, but don't really know what in the hell they are doing with the stick - kind of like idiot proof. For those of us that actually make an effort to perfect our shift points, we would like to be able to read the tach.


And I agree with TAG 100%. Those of you who want 0 amminities and nothing but a stripped down sled with a lot of HP, that is fine, I can respect that, but remember you always have the option of subtracting options to get the car that you want, at least provide us with the options that we want so that we have the ability to build the Camaro we want. Just becasue you all still want that classic muscle car (lot of HP no luxury) doesn't mean the rest of us don't. I want a modern muscle car - lots of HP and ALL of the luxuries.

casull I can't agree more with you. I want a muscle car that will put you back in that comfortable seat when you smash on the gas. And yes I do like the interior the way it is now. As long as it is nice and comfortable. I want my camaro as nice on the inside as the outside if not nicer.

Question Interior

Past couple of threads have been on engine and exterior mods. What about interior options? Have their been any word of upgrades or modification? What will be standard?

I'd be curious to know what kind of factory customization can be done?

according to a few tv shows, the convertible has the vented leather in white. Looks bad ass. I'd like to get it in black with green under-inserts to match my paint.

I think most conversation has focused around the exterior because we know what we are getting - a car very closely resembling the concept. Witht he interior, it is anyone's guess. I wold be very suprised if the interior at all resembles what is in the concept. I do like the two toned interior and the syling of the seats in the convertible though.

I think the only huge difference will be the color schemes, and the heat/radio controls.
They seem very adamant about the Two Rectangular spedo/odometer things
And very proud of the steering wheel.

You're one of the first people I've heard say it looked 'futuristic'. I'm usually arguing with people that think it's uber-retro that it's NOT that retro.

With the exception of the odd Radio I think it's a nice blend of Future Retro and hope they keep most of it as-is.

I actually disagree, I WILL say that I didn't like it at first. But it has grown on me, and I will be upset if they change it significantly.

Oh, I absolutely hated it at first. Then the more I looked at it the more I realized it was probably just the hideous orange they used.

Then when the convertible came out I KNEW it was just the orange. The Convertible's interior (dash) looks MUCH better than the coupe. But the radio/HVAC controls are just too 'odd' to stay production. That, and I'd like some storage down below there, as well as a couple cupholders...

Where they have white, I'd like to have silver in mine.

I think that the interior is clean!! I hope that they will offer the four gaugues down in the center console. The only problem with that is visibillity. They had better offer a hounds tooth option.

I like it. Many dashes are too busy. I prefer simple designs, such as the S2000 and the new Camaro. Like the exterior, it's an original design but it's shows its lineage

Umm, it's ok... The stripe that goes across the dash and widens into the door moldings looks a bit cheesy but other'nat I'm just glad GM didn't put digital gauges in there.

i agree totally about the stripe however if the color is choseable/matched to the color of your car i would be ok with the strip of what looks like metal in the interior other than that and the gauges i am fine with the interior.

Hate the instrument panel... really hope they change the huge numbers and the placement of the tach... although I think it's neat how the fuel gauges, etc. are in the center by the shifter.

I'm also not crazy about the orange color of the coupe and prefer the convertible's coloring better.

I hope they have something kind of like the newer cars are coming out with where you can change the color of the lights in the instrument panel... I'm gonna go grey with all blue

Ya i dont like the Gauges either, although, i know that they will have to give us more numbers than that.

I actually think that the DOT states no more than 20 mph incriments between the numbers on speedometers. (I might be completley wrong, its just what i heard)

I hate the tach area... they have got to change that whole "retro" look of the big numbers. I like how my 2001 Camaro has the little individual lines that tell you just how fast you're going. With the tach like it is on the concept, how would I be able to argue myself out of a ticket?! :p I like the various extras you can see on the closeup of the panel shot of the convertible concept (like the headlamp light, etc.) I think that's pretty neat.

I will also say that IMO, the orange in the coupe concept is absolutely hideous. But when I saw the interior of the convertible, I liked it somewhat better. I just want my interior color to correspond well with my exterior color.

I also would like to have the option like some of the newer cars are coming out with now where you can change the back light behind your instrument panel from pink, purple, blue, green, whatever. I'm a blue kind of girl, myself.

I also hope that my seats stay low to the ground like they are in my 4th gen. I love my low seats and I think they are extremely comfortable. I would drive my car to California and back (and that's quite a long way from Kentucky!) without thinking twice about it, and I know my seats would be comfortable.

Not sure. Better than the old 85 MPH maximum during the 80s they had. Like that would actually stop people from speeding. Just looks all wrong in my dad's 81' Vette

I love that the speedo and tach are retro and the air and stereo controls look futuristic. It's a nice combo of retro and contemporary. I hate all the dials and knobs and crap cars now have all down the center of the dash.

that was my imediate perception between the coupe and vert. the orange metalic in the coupe is extremely ugly, however the white/ssilver whatever it is looks great compaired to the coupe

I think I did hear something like that somewhere. We just have to remember the only version of the interior we (most of us) have seen is a concept. So the 25mph increments with no divisions inside - is unrealistic, and unpractical. how are you supposed to know if your going 40mph...there's no line for it...

IMO, production will see those gauges with smaller numbers ("font-size"), and more increments, but same gauge shape.

But, dont' you think that's a given? Something they will obviously change? That's why I don't bother to complain about it, it's not gonna stay, I'm sure.

It should match the exterior color, yes. But not necessarily have to be the same. I'd probably only get it in a metallic silver myself.

Yeah, I definitely would like to see that. Purple kinda guy myself (and I don't care how gay that sounds...).

I, too, liked the lowered seating position of the 4th Gens. I haven't found many cars I've liked the position as much as.

But, that said, I'm currently in a loaner vehicle since my put-put Aveo has been at the dealership for a week. It's a 2006 Dodge Stratus. I have to say, it's seating position is VERY nice. A nice balance between the super low 4th Gen and a higher seating position. That, and the Stratus has some really comfy seats.

Personally I hate those large ugly screens in cars. I'd be just as happy (happier) with our Garmin Nuvi 350 coming along if I need directions.

Just imagine how useless all those screens will be in 5-10 years, or less even, when they're outdated and starting to break down.

Just get a removable unit for a LOT less $.
