I'm not expecting that this gathering is for any serious changes to the 5th gen.

A sweet candy apple red 50th anniv edition. Similar to the Vette's 50th.

Why don't we ahve a V6 performance package similar to the "Mayhem" performance package for the V6 Mustang? Their package includes:

• 3.31 rear axle ratio for quicker off-the-line acceleration
• Mustang GT coupe front and rear stabilizer bars
• Mustang GT front struts and rear shocks/springs
• Shelby GT500 rear lower control arm
• Unique 19-inch wheels
• Pirelli performance tires for improved grip
• Mustang GT front and rear brake calipers with Performance Friction pads
• Strut tower brace for increased body rigidity
• Unique electronic stability control calibration with sport mode for performance driving
• Unique badging

In my Camaro V6 performance package, I personally start with:

1. Better brake calipers and disks. The SS Brakes look so much better. They don't need to be as big, but they don't need to look like they are from a Civic either.
2. A 3.55 or 3.73 gear available for our V6? V6 guys like performance too. If our SS brothers can beat GTs, shouldn't we be able to beat a Mustang v6?
3. A 19" wheel/tire combo that provides the grip of the 20" and looks better that the stock 19" wheels.

Thank you for your interest Janet.

You already made my wishes and dreams come true when you decided to build the ZL1.

Thanks!

If they did come out with the 1LE package for v6 and v8, that would cover it. Just a thought.

It's pretty much a given that a Blue color has to surface again...

Jetstream Blue gets my vote..

and the OPTION to add Navigation like the Vette's

1LE package that can be installed on previous Camaros (2010-2012). I'd buy that in a heartbeat! Maybe a way to change the interior lighting color (HUD, Radio, Guages, Screens, Door Light Tubes), similar to what they had in previous mustangs (not sure if they had that option on the american version). If these are old subjects, then please disreguard

Janet
Janet, thanks for seeking input!! This is a prime example of why I'm very proud to be a Camaro enthusiast.

They can do whatever they want, as far as I'm concerned as long as it stays a CAMARO in spirit. The micro-managing of how they get there is up to the designers and engineers.

I'm humbled to provide my wishes, however:

In terms of design -- the 5th gen rolls around with one of the strongest presences on the road, easy. Please don't lose that!! Compromises that some people complain about like the rear-visibility or the "tank-like" windows....these are the things that make the car GREAT, imo. They remind you of the kind of car you're driving...it's not a boring A-B mobile. And frankly....it's not suffering in sales much, now is it? So these characteristics are things worth keeping, imo.

I love the deep shoulders out back, the quad taillights, halo headlights, and bold fascia, too. (No other car save Aston Martin has rear body panels like that. So striking!!)

Mechanicals? It's a Camaro -- so I'd like to see the team do what they can to keep the V8 as affordable as possible...however, I'd also like to see them try and appeal to a wider audience with a T4 base engine, or what have you.

Chevy revealed a 2+2 compact RWD coupe at 2012 NAIAS; Code 130R. I think team Camaro can cater the base model Camaro to appeal to the niche market that concept car would appeal to. Thus strengthening the Camaro's viability within the brand.

That said...Let's keep the mid and high-performing models alive and well. Supercar performance on a budget.

Thanks again, Janet -- and ALL the disciples!!
