-Silver racing stripes option

I could think of more but I don't want to write a novel.
1.I thought there was a green color coming.
2. Yes the rear bumper GFX in my opinion look terrible.
3.Better nav yes. the current one is cheap.
4. yes bumblebee stripes would be awesome not ones that say transformers.
5.Ram-air yes we need it!
6.Back-up light location please re-do like the 1st gen.
7. new spoiler yes!!! dovetail would look great.
8. Louder exhaust yes. The camaro seems very quiet for a 6.2l v8
9. Hardtop convert would look amazing.
10. silver racing stripes for black is what i want, but i am waiting to see on a z/28.

11. Can we get this guy an app to GM please you know exactly what needs to be done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


(quit wasting time on the bumblebee camaro and do these things!)

If I was the Obama Car Czar...

How about putting it on a diet!
I would love to see a smaller, lighter car, the V8's are close to 2 tons! This thing needs to drop 5 to 600 pounds! There are sedans out there that weigh less than this thing.
Motor wise, the Z28 should be a DI twin turbo V6! 480+ HP, if Nissan can do this so can GM.
SS should be a natural aspirated DI V6 with some tweaks 320 -350 HP. Trust me a lighter better handling smaller SS will still kill any Mustang, Challenger, 370z, or STI on the street.
Then lets get creative here; how about a hybrid Camaro! That would keep this car off the Obama cut list for sure.
Finally for the first time owners, new kids and renters, take the turbo 4 banger out of the cobalt and put it in the base model Camaro!
Keep the look of the car the way it is, it look bad ass just needs to be smaller.
I am sorry to say but V8's are not the future for this car and since GM now stands for Government Motors; a V8 in a car is a sure fire way to get it cut from production.

-purple color option
-green color option
etc...

maybe drop the price of the Camaro a couple grand by next year too would be nice so you can seal the deal with me.

personally I wouldn't change or add much to it, its perfect the way it is for right now, just throw in some more color options etc...and you will still be at the top of your game, but don't change anything.
if you change anything to much you may actually hurt sales and make it worse.lol.
and if you add to much stuff it drives the price up which nobody wants.......
its perfect where its at.
Im Content.

No! No no no no no no NO! You basically want GM to convert the Camaro to the new Civic. Putting a 4-cylinder engine in a Camaro would be complete castration to it's name and heritage. Obviously sales are better than GM had hoped; dealers can't keep the thing on the lot for more than a few hours before someone comes along and buys it immediately. That tells you people still want good old American Muscle.

F*ck Obama. Government tells people what they can and can't do enough already, they don't need to add cars to their Big Brother list. If you can afford to drive a gas-guzzling V8, then by all means, pay more money for it (which we are) and help stimulate the economy. Not every single person in the country needs to convert to a Prius driver.

Z/28 does NOT equal V6.

1) < 3,700 lbs
2) Optional factory installed supercharger with fully forged internals
3) Anything else that will slay the living daylights out of a 2011+ Mustang GT for the same cost
