"When loads are light, the E38 automatically closes both intake and exhaust valves for half of the cylinders and cuts fuel delivery to those four. The valves re-open to activate all cylinders when the driver demands brisk acceleration or full torque to move a load. The engine’s electronic throttle control (ETC) is used to balance torque following cylinder deactivation or reactivation. The transition takes less than 20 milliseconds, and can’t be detected by the driver." http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1978

Cool! Thanks for the explanation.

So the bigger question is, will it work with a supercharger????

I cant really tell from the photos but are the door/windows like the ones on the 4thgen camaro where there is no frame around the window? Does this cause any problems down the road like leaking ...?

I would like to take this opportunity to invite GM to test drive here in WV. We could complete incredible research on:
Driving on curvy mountainous roads.
Dealing with punk from NJ who can't drive, but bring their cars here to school anyway,
Weaving in and out of traffic caused by PA people commuting to work who don't realize the speed limit goes up by 5mph when they enter WV.
D.C maybe good, but Morgantown is the best place to be creative where you park (because there is no parking). I once parked my Shadow in a bike rack because the Motorcycle parking was full.
You forgot to add to take Dramaine before entering state! (For motion sickness from all the turns.)

Still waiting for the answer. Does anyone think they know how that will work?

The Charger Killer is on sale now, its the G8. Perhaps you meant Challenger? There is no hold up. Everything is proceeding as scheduled. It typically takes 3-4 years to do a ground up design for a car. So nothing has been delayed

I don't think most spring-breakers will be able to AFFORD this car. It's a test.

They are having problems finding the right rope for the back.

Sorry, old pre-production rope joke.

Be patient my Camaro friend, 2009 will hit us before you blink!

The reason the mufflers are exposed is there is a fascia missing that fits back there. I think it will be similar to the types of fascia's GM is using on the Saturn SKY and the Pontiac Solstice. Its just a piece of black plastic that clips in.

If they released a new car without the proper preparation, it will bomb. The Camaro needs extensive road testing to guarantee that it will last for a long time and to see how smoothly it will run as it ages. GM also needs to develop accessories and marketing strategies to make sure the car is successful. We're all anxious to get this car, but we need to be patient so it comes out as well as we all hope.
