While the weight on the spec sheets is OK for the street I would like to have one in the 3,300 or 3,400 Lb range without needing to replace seats... right after I buy it.

Nothing has been said about a lightweight special. Although, if the car is not intended to ever be used on the streets GM is selling body shells (no powertrain, interior, suspension, or VIN). As for weight reduction, 500 lbs would be a stretch even with swapping the seats.

I have not seen if the car can be gotten with a limited slip or what the ratio will be. Any word here about that?

All Camaros except for the V6 auto come with a limited slip

Also can a manual be had without the 1 to 4 skip shift like in the Corvette?

No, but it is deflatable with a tune, a resistor bought from radioshack, or a heavier right foot.

This is the first new model anyone has come out with in a long time that might fit my unique requirements and that I am really excited about.

My current fun/track car is a 1995 BMW M3 and I have used it for many years not because I could not replace it but because it fit my needs better than anything coming out and I was not happy with the looks of stuff I saw. The new Camaro could have me starting a new project and moving away from the M3 as my primary fun car. And for me that is saying allot of good about the Camaro.

Thank you in advance for any info.

Welcome to the site, my main responce is in bold. We have had a few discussions about skipshift if you want to know more please use the search feature. Weight reduction is another issue. We only have guesses as to what can be done, but lightweight body pannels and such won't be available right away.

Thank you for the response.

I was not aware a shell is available. I will drive the car on the street even if only a 500 miles a year. Some tracks within 5 hours from the house I drive to. And I need it street legal if I decide to run One Lap of America.

The remark about seat replacement was meant as a figurative starting point for discussion of weight.
