Well I think a few questions can be put to bed for a while.
No Firebird.
No Z28
No transforming Camaro.

Seriously though, I was looking forward to my SAR Camaro (Super Advanced Robot)

At least they got the Camaro SS finished first, wonder if this impacts the DI V8 that GM's been working on.

My SS (If GM lasts long enough to make it) Just became more of a collectors item I think.

Well if they can promote it as being more fuel efficent to replace exisiting engines without it I would say it is still a go.

Well then it's settled. As soon as I'm done with this education I gotta start working MY ASS OFF to be able to buy a new V8 Camaro before they're gone.

I dig your optimism, but as soon as those idiots at CAFE, EPA and all those places hear "V8" they'll just go "no".

The SS and Z28 are already done. There just won't be any future high performance vehicles until GM is financially healthy.

I would be interested in knowing if this decision was based on profitabilty for such vehicles or if was just deemed politically incorrect. For example, has GM analyzed the cost to design and produce these high-performance vehicles vs their ROI?

I say bring back the COPO cars, let specialzed dealers order them and then build specialty versions and even have them titled under a non-gm or chevy name. Similar to what Saleen did for the Mustang. That might allow them to get under the CAFE standards since I don't think those rules apply to limited production vehicles are mfg's that produce small numbers.
