All except for this...
the wheel would grow on me if they just took the bowtie out and put CAMARO there instead. way too Malibu/Impala looking. otherwise can't wait. plus i coudl care less what they wheel looks liek in the grand scheme of things. everyone knows when you drive a car this fast the only thing it needs to have is a nice @ss b/c that's all anyone is going to see!

I would bet it will be in the mid to high 50K...

HAHAH same. i was like there is nothing wrong with the gauges, gas pedal, vents, or center consle, this dudes crazy.

I still love the look of the updated interior. And the steering wheel is sooo much better than the current one.

The steering wheel looks funky, but it will feel great. Flat bottom, smaller steering wheels are the way to go for racing imo and with alcantera it will feel awesome in your hands. Looks like it's shaping up to be a real great car. Can't wait to see what people do with them.

If gm really wanted to make the camaro have some serious performance it would have made the car ligther, at 4,000 plus the car is just going to suck up gas,

Obviously they aren't done with the ZL1 design yet, but they are definitely thinking about the weight or they wouldn't have given it a carbon fiber hood vent on an aluminum hood. And the wheels are bigger than the SS wheels but lighter! Come on! Give credit where credit is due, even if it ends up being a little chunky in the end.

Sure I'll give it a penny, but seriously any body can add horsepower to their cars, but if you really want to stand out and have some serious performance then weight is a crucial factor, especially in RWD cars

i wish there was a way to order one without the stripes. All they do is attract attention in traffic.

I'm sure that nobody buying this car wants to draw attention to themselves!

im sure it will be both heavy and fast. Probably 4100lbs thats my guess. a lighter car would be off the hook but not sure how possible that is without taking away from the cars overall quality feel.

ZL1 is not supposed to be a stripped down Camaro with more power and less weight that is what the Z28 badge is for!

The stripe down the roof and center of the trunk lid, I believe is optional!

I sure hope not. I'm hoping they at least match the SS' weight. It does seem like more added weight was mentioned rather then weight reduction (supercharger, mag ride, stronger axles, diff, etc) vs. weight reduction of carbon fiber insert on hood, lighter wheels and whatever else they mentioned. I hope they did more then that to reduce weight.

Maybe because I have a deposit on the ZL1 and Chevy built me the car exactly the way I would have built it, I am a little partial to the ZL1. My feeling is anytime an automobile manufacturer builds a car that fits 98% of the things that you are looking for in a car, then they built you the car you wanted. Honestly, I still can't get over all of the negatives on here about this car. Maybe it is something that I am missing because honestly, I simply do not see anything negative about the car, once I got over Chevy NOT calling it a Z28. This Camaro has so much technically advanced equipment and power of which ALL of it is geared to go fast and built to last, I truly can't understand all of the nitpicking and negative thoughts. So the car is almost 4000 lbs. It has always been almost 4000 pounds. Did you really expect them to add a S/C with 150HP, magnetic ride, HD transmission and rear end and expect it to lose weight. I mean really did you? The ZL1 will be an absolutely phenomenal car at a weight that it has always been. I am sure the next generation Camaro will be on more of a diet, but in the meantime, this this ZL1 Camaro has been brought back to wreak havoc on the world. One of my favorite car ads said: When you turn your car on, does it return the favor? This car will definitely turn you on when you fire it up. If it doesn't then, there really is NO hope for you. Just an old farts opinion.

I understand these settings are for the magnetorehological struts used in the CORVETTE and the CTS-V.

If this puppy gets PTM/traction control, you can say bye to the GT500 no matter how much horespower it gets. Sub 4 sec 0-60 and high 11's here we come.
