LOL! I thought I was the only one who thinks all these cars with the push button start is lame.

+3 I think that's a cool feature, but I'd rather save the money from that toward going faster

How many turn signals does the front of that car need?... I think those amber lamps in the ducts should be fog or driving lights.

JMVHO. I'm not feeling the hood or garage door opening where the mailslot is. I think GM could do a Leno or SLP-style hood; maybe get rid of the mailslot.

Cool rendering, but not really for me. I won't complain, though, if that's what we get

I don't understand why people are assuming prices at 55K+. That's a bit irrational considering you may as well pick up a vette for that price. Who cares what the hell Ford is selling a GT500 for, you think GM wants to put out a nearly powerful/fast car for roughly the same price as a ford? No. Why would they? What do they have to gain from doing something like that? GM is trying to turn a profit, not play copy cat with ford. Releasing a camaro for that price would be a historic mistake considering the companys condition and todays economy. And considering a camaro has NEVER been that expensive, ever... I love the camaro but you HAVE to be foolish to pay 55k for one.

An honest estimate for a price would be hovering around the high high 30's to the low low 40's for a base package.

I think it's because many feel that Z28 might have a premium over SS, much like SS had over the Mustang GT. I don't think that's a price people want to pay; I know I don't, LOL! I don't think GM's worried about our little Z28 stepping on Big Brother's toes either. I really don't think handling will match Z06 out-right, though acceleration might be close.

JMVHO.

I also think they really don't care because the next gen vette will be out soon enough.

That's close to the color I've had on my avatar pic for a couple of years. It was rendered on this site full size then, if I remember correctly Dragoneye did mine, it was the more production front end like the SS but it does have Z/28 emblems on it (hard to see that on the avatar size). I'd like to see a new version of Rallye Green, but I think Synergy Green is as close as GM will get in the near future.

I'm not feeling that green (Synergy), but I'm not a green person, so it's no biggie. I'll be happy if all the green people get the color they want though. The more the better.
