That's totally the opposite of how I would feel today I had a 2010 V6. I would happy as all heck finding out that my car actually has 312 hp.

Wah!?!?

It produced the most power when it was released...and it STILL makes the most power...there was no bluffing, and no reason to be angry...what are you talking about?

BTW Skyman - looks like your engine cover has to go get a bit of paint work re-done.

Really? Finding out your car has even more power than you thought is a bad thing? I could understand if it was the other way, buying what you thought was 304 and it turns out to be 296, but not 304 to 312

I wonder if the Synergy Green interior will be available as an interior option for the limited run same as the inferno orange, that would be amazing haha, id be all up for a solid black 2011 SS with green interior accents

Also i get the feeling that this is only half of the story. First off remember back when the first official word on the 2010 Camaro came out, what was the first stuff we heard? It was all about the V6, it took a while for GM to spill the beans on what the SS had cooked up. Also take a look at the new 2011 Mustang, they did the same thing, they released a bunch of info on the new things they were doing with the V6 and it took a few months before they said anything about the new 5.0. So lets not get ahead of ourselves here, i seriously doubt this is the final word on the 2011 Camaro as a whole, im sure here in a few months there will be another press release on all the updates they're adding to the SS.

I'm not pissed at all. I got more than I paid for. If they added a few horses to the 2011 or there were significant changes I might be upset that I didn't wait the extra year to buy a 2011 Camaro.

Well,

That's dumb.

They couldn't offer more gear ratios?

They couldn't offer some sort of option that uses different springs and anti-roll bars or something like that? Pretty much anything that upgrades the suspension?

Seriously?

I'm sorry. I'm a huge Camaro fan, but that's just weak. You cant edge out the Mustang with a new color. Or a new Rating. A number won't increase your performance at all. If I said my brother's civic had 500 horsepower, it still wouldn't perform like it did.

Simple options that can increase performance and level out the playing field were ignored. REAL performance enthusiasts won't pick a car based on coolness (Luckily most buyers will; it's a life saver for the Camaro). They will pick the better performer (Mustang with Track Pack).

Not saying that the Mustang is a better car. Just saying that specific Mustang will outperform the Camaro.

Come on GM. We are getting beat. By something as achievable as 3 tenths on a sprint to 60, or a time on a quarter mile. Don't fall behind because of something that silly. You made a great car, now keep updating it to keep up with this fierce competition coming from Ford. The ball is in your court and this is how you respond...

You're right, I at least was acting like one of those girls on the MTV Sweet 16 reality show where they cried because the brand new car they got wasn't the right color...

I just need to start deciding how to properly spend what I do have to get the best Camaro I can get for the money!

The Synergy Green interior accents are exclusive to the 1LT. I would suggest you order a black interior in your SG SS and then buy the SG panels at your dealer.
