so question, if u add meth injection or something and a tune, would it void ur factory warranty? i might would consider one of these but im looking at a goal of 600 rwhp so i would need some more boost

Oh, you know there will be and I tell you it is one of the things that makes a car guy, a car guy. Good, ol competition. It really doesn't get any better.
I can't wait to see some of the matchups.

The number of convertibles of a model that are sold are rarely as many as the number of coupes that are sold, but that doesn't stop auto manufacturers from offering convertibles. Chevrolet will not sell as many LT and SS convertibles as coupes, but a convertible model is still offered for the LT and SS.

Yes, if the ZL1 is going to compete with the GT500 on all levels, a ZL1 convertible must be offered.

I agree, there should be a convertible ZL1. Doesn't mean there will be though. That would be quite an expensive Camaro. Like Corvette GS expensive.

People will also still purchase SS's and put superchargers on them. Sometimes it's easier to spend 35K on an SS. Then when you have the money spend another 10K on a supercharger, etc.
Some guys just don't have $55k from the get go.

It can also be a lot harder to convince the wife that you need a $55K Camaro.

But for the people that can afford it, getting a ZL1 will be the way to go.
The faster you go, the faster you want to go,it never ends

Except that it doesn't compete with the GS Corvette. If it's going to be priced in line with the GT500, the convertible should be about as much as a GT500 convertible.

Good show. Way to stay on top of it. Totaly cool that you were mentioned. The Auto Option thread poll had almost died until you got on it.

It's definitely gonna be a complete package.

I just hope they don't lower the horsepower to make it equal with the manual for the qtr mile. The new 5.0 mustang auto seriously destroys the manual.

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 ?
