The top fender bulges both front and rear remind me of the late '60s Corvair:

Hmmmm the makings of a 2016 Z/28?????

"Cadillac claims a less than 3,400-pound curb weight on the ATS will be one of the lowest in the segment along with nearly 50/50 weight balance".

Did you notice in the reveal, Reuss talked about magnesium and titanium undercarriage, lightweight interior pieces, (door panels) that they scrutinized every gram of weight going into the car.

I hope that translates well into the next Camaro.

As long as the pieces aren't ATS specific, I would expect them to use HS steel stampings for the entry level cars, and use (some of) the Ti/al in the Z/28 & ZL1 if it carries over.

Compared to an existing Mustang V6, achieving "parity" for the ATS-based Camaro shouldn't be difficult.

Mustang V6, now, is 188.2/107.1/73.9/55.8/3447

ATS V6, apparently, is 182.8/109.3/71.1/55.9/3400ish (318hp X 10.8 = 3,434)

Current Mustang GT = 3602 lbs./BOSS = 3631 lbs.

Gen-6 Camaro SS/Z28 is likely to be in this neighborhood, as well (+100/engine, +75/driveline-wheels-tires-brakes). How much high-tech trickle-down from the ATS, to offset some of this on V8 versions, remains to be seen.
