I'm not one to yell " Z28!!! " at every spyshot or concept, but this has potential to be something good.

i don't know how long some of you have been around the camaro scene, but if anyone owned a 4th gen do you remember how shitty the suspension was? the stock shocks were shot at about 50k miles, the springs were flimsy as hell. who woulda thunk GM would have gotten the suspension so right on these cars 10 years later?

oh yeah, if it has magnetic ride, why doesn't it have all the other traction mode buttons that the ZL1 has?

My thoughts are that this car is just a concept. Like the LS7 concept. However, they aren't really doing anything new, and are using existing Camaro parts, so it would be a lot simpler to produce. If/when production time comes around they could, and probably will change it to Z/28.

Nice, but two thoughts.

1. If this makes it to a production model, they need to bump up the HP a bit.

2. I wonder how they put in an active exhaust on this and I wonder if it will eventually be able to be added onto a regular SS.

It needs to drop all that leather interior and lose some weight in places other than wheels and rotors. Cloth buckets with mechanical adjustments, no seat warmers, etc. All that stuff adds weight. Yes, I know they've made the ZL1 perform thus far with heavy weight in it, but, that will add extra wear on the systems, even if they're designed for it. You can't add mass without it effecting something somewhere. It may be faster tire wear, shorter lasting bushings, more frequent fluid changes, etc.. It always has to be accounted for.

Not every model Camaro needs to be a luxury coupe on the inside.. It looks like it's trying to be a ZL1 minus the LSA engine.

I think it's a nice start, but I personally would just like to see it go more towards performance considerations than creature comforts. 2LT/2SS and ZL1 are pretty much already that in the V6/V8 world.

not only are thos the things that add the least weight, but removing them would add more cost because you're now introducing new parts that are specific to only one model trim.

Yes, I know they've made the ZL1 perform thus far with heavy weight in it, but, that will add extra wear on the systems, even if they're designed for it. You can't add mass without it effecting something somewhere. It may be faster tire wear, shorter lasting bushings, more frequent fluid changes, etc.. It always has to be accounted for.

where have you been? That s exactly what GM is about. Look at Corvette GS and Z07

I think it's a nice start, but I personally would just like to see it go more towards performance considerations than creature comforts. 2LT/2SS and ZL1 are pretty much already that in the V6/V8 world.

Also -- my comment about dropping the leather interior and losing weight in other places were independent thoughts, but I see how they could have been read together. I meant, no leather interior and lose weight in other areas of the car, not just in the wheel and rotor -- as in -- drive shaft, flywheel, engine, etc. anywhere it can be found.
