I guessing that this 55K Camaro you speak of is still just a estimated price tag?!

I wonder if the PTM will be standard or available as an option or a part of a "track pack" similar to what the GT500 offers? Any word on this or was it just mentioned that it would be "available".

I'm thinking if it isn't standard (in order to keep the entry level price down) and they do offer this theoretical track pack, the light weight SSX wheels would be a part of the package.

Or unless GM knew they all along they were going to have an Auto tranny.

On another note: This car is going to be atleast $49,xxx, with all the options its going to be up there...

It'll be $55k, with a few extra options give or take. A bottom line ZL-1 will be high $40's and easily $55k with options especially for an Auto tranny with probably atleast an additional $1500.

Nice to have the Auto option, just please don't detune it like they did on the L99 auto's. If GM does go that route, have the option to delet the "Active Fuel Management system" Haven't seen any fuel numbers on the that motor in Cadillac CTS-V, is there a Gas Guzzler tax ?

Original post was ambiguous about the PTM being standard or available, and I wondered the same thing. If the grammar is correct, our Home Page is reporting Auto trans as an available option and the PTM as standard equipment on ZL1.

The Camaro Permagrin widens even more.

Now we can shift gears and start fantasizing about the "Guaranteed to be astounding" HP numbers we'll get in a few months.

Yup, and I'm not 100% sure, but I believe it is higher in the auto version.

It will more than likely have a gas tax on it, if so no restrictions

From what little research I have done on the CTS-V Coupe, gas guzzler tax is $1,300 on the manual and $2,600 on the automatic. The ZL1 auto option is SWEET to have.

They won't. I'm 95% sure of it...this car mirrors many of the features of the CTS-V, and it's not detuned. There is a GG tax on the CTS-V. Currently it sits at 14/19 mpg. I think the Camaro team can do something to improve that, though. After all, when introduced, the 3.6L CTS had a 26mpg hwy rating, and Camaro managed 29, and now 30 with the 2LS model. I'm optimistic they can avoid the GG tax to further compete with the GT500...we'll have to see.

Yes. No official prices (or performance statistics, for that matter) have been released. A couple more months until we know that...

Generally...with things like MRC, and traction control systems, they're standard features. All the engineering and programming that goes into dialing these systems for the Camaro would be wasted if it's not standard.

People thought the SSs FE4 suspension tuning would be optional, but it's standard. I don't think they specified on PTM, though.
