Actually, they're pretty much dead even with an SS in terms of curb weight. ~~3,800lbs or so.

Didnt I say this was going to happen. Push the Z28 with the LS7 and a ZL1 higher output LSA for a couple years, then we go to gen6 with the new platform.

ZR1 > ZL1
Z06 > ?? maybe Z/28
GS > 1LE
C6 > SS

In the other hand, while there will be no Z06 for 2014, the produced engines from LS7 line need to go somewhere. I think the LS7 Camaro will be limited for ONE year production while they design a replacement for LS7.

Also I think the ZL1 was planned to be Z/28 powered by LS7 but they dropped this plane and went For LSA instead at the last moment and call it ZL1. Why, maybe they faced some technical issues to get the LS7 working with automatic transmission. Or a study showed they cannot provide as much LS7 engines for the highly demanded Z/28.

While I agree that they aren't much to look at, no one can argue with the performance the GT-R provides. Damn impressive. The mentality that V8 trumps all is going to have to die and it will be in our life time. The days of V8s in normal consumer cars are limited. Just a matter of when, not if.

This is exactly how I feel. Have all the twin turbo whatever you like, but as long as there's a V8 option, I'm good with it.

Only 2 things will kill the V8. Government or really high gas prices. If we have demand for them they will sell them.

And you don't think either of those are likely to happen in the next couple decades?

I've ridden in one that was only mildly modded and tuned and it was like nothing I'd been in before and rivaled the mag-lev coaster acceleration feeling..

It was just stupid fast. I would have traded my Camaro in for it and I'd still trade in my Grand Sport if I could manage the upkeep cost of it.

I was also taken for some very aggressive laps around Road America in the same car by a highly skilled precision driver. It ate cars like they were standing still waiting to be consumed.

Your grand sport would do that. It's a lot more scary when someone else is driving.

I was hoping we would see the LT1 engine move to the Camaro in 2014 since I'm going to order an auto anyway. I'm sure it will happen if they're going to put it in the the trucks and SUVs after the Corvette.

Gas prices will stay the same with some bumps here and there. The gov is what I am worried about. Most people in this country have become so soft they let the gov run right over them. Sorry but a V6 will never be as bad ass as a V8.

I believe a TT V6 is about to go into a couple of Cadillacs. I like the reference to a high output LS7. The LS7 Camaro Concept had 550hp.

Fixed it for you. A GS doesn't hold a candle to a modified GT-R, or a stock one for that matter.

Hopefully there will be some info about a new Camaro at the Detriot Auto Show so we dont have to keeping guessing about this, although they might wait till Chicago with the new Vette being released in Detriot.

You'd switch brands for a 4V 4 cam V8 motor that's a nightmare to work on? Are you sure you're really a "CAMARO" guy/owner?:troll:

did you mean "their"?
