I'm confused, does the SS even look any different? Did they even picture it in any of those photos, or have they already dropped that "new" bumper they made?

I think Inferno Orange Metallic looks fairly close to Hugger Orange, and there is no denying that colors always look a little darker or less vibrant on a digital screen than they do to the naked eye or in a real photograph. Those colors were just photoshops of the concept car so I'll take them relatively lightly. As long as there's an orange, I'm set.

What confuses me is the badging... what if I do want to show off I have an SS? And do those HID/halo headlamps come available ONLY with the RS package, or can I get them separately? Since that's all I'd want: I'd get a much larger lip spoiler than what that RS package gives you and I don't like those wheels anyway - I hope they make the vert concept wheels!

Wherever there are some pics of the SS model, they need to turn up soon, I wanna see how it differentiates.

Can we expect this level of moronics from here on out around here? If you have not been following along and have no idea what's going on, then research the site here or ask questions...but effing SEARCH FIRST.

So much stupidity in this short thread, I can't stand it. Please, all you bandwagon jumpers, go buy the 20 year old technology Mustang and have a nice ride. We don't care what you do if you want to be drama queens about badging and the fact that not everything was released today.

No Scoot did say there was or was not goin to be a Z28 out of the gate. But last week it seemed be the consensus that there was and what Scott had hinted at was that we’d find out today. And it looks like I AM right. No Z28 for now.

The GOOD things about today.

1. The V8 is only 3800 not 3900. sorry dodge.

2. 422 hp and 407lbs of torque.

3. The HUD has been confirmed

4. The magnetic suspension ride control for Competative/Sport

5. Go watch the 'Ignition Video' at Chevy.com/Camaro

MPG

It may be too late for those that posted infront of me, and I doubt anyone after will be reading this far down. Anyhow, the federal government changed the formula for calculating MPG on average they whent down from what i've seen 4mpg from previous years estimated. That being said if the old formula was used the SS would have been rated close to 27 and the V6 30. Anyhow thats my 2 cents about the subject it dosen't mean you won't get better than the estimate if your a good eficient driver. It just means they adjusted the estimates for the real world where it's stomp on the gas and brake hard.

He DID specifically say we would NOT find out about the z/28.

So who here thinks that the L99 SS will get better mileage than the LS3 version? Whow thinks the tranny choice will be a no cost option, and who thinks you will pay extra for auto?

P.S. Who here can say that the "new" EPA estimates are on the low side? I mean, my LS1 gets over 30MPG on the highway and was rated a lot lower using the "old" system that was supposed to be too generous.

I would have to say I was a bit disappointed in the webcast as well. I think way too much time was spent talking about other GM vehicles instead of being completely focused on the Camaro.

Although the release of the spec sheet and colors was very nice. Pricing and the list of "factory" available options would be nice. It indicated that "extensive list of options and accessories for almost unlimited personalization choices". Would really be nice to know what those are since a couple of the pictures show the coupe with a sunroof but with no details on what trim package it is available on.

Also does anyone know what the next date of August 6th entails? I can't find the thread where the discussion of another annoucement from GM on that date was mentioned.

Hoping they will have more than just the red production coupe at the Indy 500 show in September. Would be nice to see all the paint choices and options in person. Anyone else attending? Have any insider details?

I think the main thing is that today we found out what we were pretty much expecting. IMHO this late in the game its a good thing not to have too many radical surprises. Hopefully what that means is what we are getting has been thought out and polished... that all = a quality product...... I hope. I've been reading this forum since about Aug of 07. Everything that has been leaked has been pointing towards something like this... and I can say that I'm not dissappointed. Thanks Chevy!

In 1969 there was no "Camaro Z/28". there was a Z28 RPO you could add to the "Camaro Coupe" which would give you a certain engine and suspension. It's possible they are doing that now - and I can only hope. My dad would have loved the 5th gen, loved the Inferno Orange color, and with white stripes would have bought one and drove it around all day. But how am I supposed to get one to pay tribute to that when there is no Z28 option available?

Hm. I'll just have to have hope that the Z28 will be an engine/suspension option package available at the dealership like it used to be...

That's all I can hope for at this point.

-R
Oh really, no Z/28 in 1969?? Available at the dealership like it used to be??Then perhaps you can explain how I had a new one sitting in my driveway in 1969 with Z/28 emblems all over it delivered from the factory, or the various Z/28 print ads in 1969.

If you're talking about the wide stripes on the hood and trunk, I find it interesting that everyone calls them "SS stripes" as they were originally Z/28 only '67-'69 and only started appearing on other models after the Indy Pace car version came with them.

Weren’t the scallops on the side, the “SS” stripe option?

My guess is it whill be like the Vette since the trannys are the same, the manual is standard and the auto costs extra

Per a post from Fbodfather at about 4:30 this morning, it will say SS and the badge will be red. Another person in the know said the default will be silver for the SS without the RS package.

All members here really better start treating others with respect or we're going to begin closing threads temporarily to "prune" them.

This level if immaturity will NOT be tolerated.

Now...Do I need to close the thread???
