What I'd love to see is a benchmark V6 model that is more than just a trim package. Have it be a formidable option to its V8 brethren and have it be the destroyer of the 370Z, G70 and the Genesis and even V6 Mustang. I'd still like to see the NA V6 up around 350 HP stock. I'd like to see the FI V6 sportin around 480-520RWHP with M3-Boxster- like handling and braking. That to me has more appeal than the SS or even the ZL-1.

Heck SIXJAK did you just pull that straight outta my brain? lol

I agree very much!

I will be dissapointed if they release a TT V6 with only 400HP or so, now that we know how super easy with low amounts of boost is is to get to that number (I'm talking crank HP) Now, I can see them releasing a lower HP TTV6 for other vehicles, but a TTV6 in a Camaro should be at least as powerful and fast as the SS.

I'm telling ya, I know its all smoke and dreams at this point, but the more I think about the next Gen Camaro on a lightweight ATS-like Alpha platform the more giddy I get. I can't imagine how fun these cars would be if they were just a smidge smaller (not much!!) and about 3 or 400 lbs lighter.

LOL Just saw this. Yeah it would be cool. If fuel gets to 4.00 + a gallon I think GM and a lot of guys addicted to 8 cylinders will start rethinking things. Don't get me wrong I'd live to see fuel drop to .99 a gallon and see GM still be motivated to produce some cool six banger stuff. I just love the sounds they make-they seem so anti establishment-counter culture-outside the box to me.

Historically and traditionally 8 cylinder Camaros were always THE performance option and the 6 cylinder Camaro was just the economy option for the broke or for the poseur or for daddies and husbands to buy for their girls and that's a tradition I don't mind seeing going the way of the doe doe bird.

The high revving DOHC LLT is a hoot to drive and it would be sick if it put 450-500RWHP to the pavement. With that you could mess with just about anybody.
