Press embargo lifts in 2 weeks... performance test result predictions

It seems the press embargo will end in about 2 weeks. Here's my prediction for the 2010 Camaro SS 6-speed manual:

0-60: 4.5 sec
0-100: 11.3 sec
1/4-mile: 12.9 sec @ 110 mph
60-0: 115'
Skidpad: .92g
Slalom: 70 mph
EPA: 18 mpg

These results would be using a 1' roll out & applying an environmental correction factor.

I bet your pretty damn close there
I know I'll be more than happy with those numbers
I'm thinking skidpad will be 2 tenths higher though

I seriously hope the handling numbers are way up there. The latest edition of Motor Trend has the Mustang GT at 0.95g (avg), 25.5 sec @ 0.70 g (avg) on the figure eight....that is very impressive.

We're all very aware of the Camaro's straight-line performance, but it will be very interesting to hear how all variants perform in cornering. I'm eagerly awaiting the testing

Why do we think the embargo will end in 2 weeks?

Might as well throw what I'm guessing for numbers:

0-60: 4.6 sec
0-100: 11.5 sec
1/4 mile: 13.1 sec @ 108 mph
60-0: 119 ft
Skidpad: .94 g
Slalom: 76 mph

Much closer. They pretty much declared a while back that 0-60 times are leaning towards 4.6-4.7, not 4.5 as hoped.

Link? I find the .95 on skidpad a bit dubious.

And I was correct...that is a TRACK PACK GT they tested a $1400 option on the GT.

Good number regardless, so is 4.9 sec 0-60 for a 315 hp car

I'll be a bit more conservative . . .
0-60: 4.7 sec
0-100: ? no good guess
1/4-mile: 13.2 sec @ 110 mph
60-0: 118'
Skidpad: .93g
Slalom: 68 mph
EPA: 15/22 manual, 15/23 Auto (these numbers are kinda already out)
