45th Anniversary Appearance Package might get me to the show room! But 500+HP will.

Wanted options mentioned on this forum that remain not offered:

1) Power passenger seat

2) CONVENIENCE AND CONNECTIVITY PACKAGE with 1SS (cloth seats), or cooled seats (leather) in the 2SS. There seems to be a manufacture leather fetish.
News Flash: Leather is uncomfortably hot in the summer. We all don't live in Detroit or Canada.

Amen to that - need a med blue or bring Aqua Blue back!
fbod already said barely anyone buys blue, so i doubt gm will add another blue.

I believe that will be an option once the convertible comes out.

Hmmm. Don't regret buying my 2011 one bit. Maybe I'd be a bit put off if this Black Granite is that much better than just plain old Black.

I would like the back-up camera, but I have a feeling that's something I can add anyway once the OEM parts hit the market.

One thing I think they should add as a safety feature is a blind spot sensor like volvo has. It seems a necessity for the Camaro and not merely a convenience like on other cars.

Thats because you don't see any true blue vehicles anymore. The car companies always offer a dark blue...that ends up looking black or purple..or some kind of weenie light blue that just looks sissy colored.

Put stryker blue (from the Pontiac G8) on the Camaro and it would be Amazing. Until then, I'm oh so happy to have my ABM.

Can't wait to see more 2012 details.

What are the odds that they will get rid of the rear sensors if they use a rear camera instead?
Unlikely -- my wife has the 2010 Equinox with back-up camera in the rearview mirror, AND she has the back-up sensors, too.

Past GM use of RPO FE4 suggests it is a track or race inspired suspension. I would reckon a 2012 Camaro so equipped will ride very firm.

This thread says its confirmed for 2012....(I'm not agreeing or dissagreeing with the info, but thought I'd pass it on.)

I'm hoping they can incorporate the camera nicely into the bumper.
Definitely can't wait to see the 45th anniversary package though.

What GM really needs to add is climate control.

My G8 has it, why can't the camaro?

black granite is a sweet color!!! I think fbod father said it wasn't offered at first because it was too similar to cyber gray. I really like the black granite, and it would look killer with gloss black stripes, but i am still going to order my 2011 synergy green ss next month.

Interesting insight! Another aspect is how certain colors "fit" specific cars and not others. While yellow doesn't rank highly at DuPont, it's very popular on Camaros -- not so much for Town Cars and other boring-mobiles.

I think that color is on a new 2 door CTS sitting on my dealer's showroom floor. It looks incredible in the sun!

I would be very interested in the back up camera. The only thing I have found that i don't truly love with my 10 is backing into my garage after dark. If I could easily add a back up camera I would be all over it. Won't swap to get it, but would love to add it to mine.

Funny you would say that - I bought my 99 Firebird used and the dealer had it listed as "purple" (it was Navy Blue Metallic.) Dark blue is one of favorite car colors, but ABM blows them away - I LOVE it! I agree about the lighter hues and I cringe every time I see a "grabber blue" Mustang (I call it Gagger Blue).

Rear camera and the nav package are the only things that interest me. I love my 2011.

I wish they had a rear camera like I have in the rear view mirror in my Traverse.

I would be curious to see if there were any motor, tranny, rear end mods? With the HP race well underway, be interesting to find out what Mopar comes out with for the Challenger soon to catch up to Ford and GM, how the BOSS302 will up the ante, and if the Z28 will affect any possible motor upgrades on the SS?

Looks like you need to check out the reviews on the new 2011 Challenger 392 then....more horses indeed. And with the 8 speed automatics from chrysler on the way for next year or soon thereafter, its going to be interesting!

Camera will probably sit at the top of the license plate frame and the display will be in the rear view mirror.
