How did you use the word?

'cause the article made it very clear that the LS2 was the engine in the Concept...others (not sure about you) imply that the Production car gets the LS2 (<) those are the only people I see chewed out.

Yup...unfortunately - That's gonna attract attention to any member. But it really isn't anything personally (surely you understand that). Imagine hearing LS2 this, and LS2 that for months at a time -- it gets old, and really, really, really annoying hearing that word. (Even though it's an amazing powerplant)

Think of it as paying your dues. Now, the next time you spot someone who mentions 'that word' or the headlights on the next set of spyshots, you can tear them up. And thus the tradition continues.

Nice read. I'm sure the Challenger people are going to be annoyed that their real car is being compared (and losing) to a not-yet-released car

Sigh, a great article ruined by such inaccuracies as an Australian assembly plant and the possibility of an LS7. Usually Inside Line is better than that. However, the rest of the article was what you could get by reading between the lines of the G8/Charger comparo.

*wipes tears away* whew...heehee, okay.

I wonder if they meant that the Chassis (the actual Zeta aspect to it) will be built in Oz...but that still doesn't make sense. Whatever - done thinking:
Oshawa. End. Of. Story.

Exactly. I remember a couple things (that have already been pointed out) where their statements were wrong or old news.

dispite a few inaccuracies it was, for the most part a pretty good read. compairing the challenger to the G8 isnt far off the mark. I cant wait to read the results of the actual production camaro vs mustang vs challenger. you know when they actually put the production camaro out there its gonna be everywhere.

With all the hype it seems like GM has put out, I think you're right. That's fine by me. I'd love to see that car everywhere.

A little dose of reality guys.

I have high hopes for the Camaro, and it will be fast, and it will be awesome, but......


A CHARGER SRT8 can and will pull 13.0-13.3 1/4 mile times with traps between 106mph- 108mph regularly. 0-60 times under 5 seconds are also common.

Saying a Charger SRT8 will only do 13.6 in the 1/4, or that 13.6 is the average for a Charger SRT8 is somking crack.


That said, the Camaro will still be faster.

Not that I don't share your optimism.. but has there been anything that pointed to the car being significantly lighter than its Zeta brethren?

I've followed the site but mainly for photos to this point. A reduced curb weight would certainly be welcomed as gas cracks $4 this year. Simply wondering if there have been hints I've not picked up on. Here's hoping GM was able to dump some of that Zeta lead during the Camaro's slumber that Holden hasn't.
