You realize no one owns a 2010 Camaro yet, correct?

They'd probably be fired (or at least lose CTF privileges) if they were caught running a 1/4 at the track...

once somebody gets theirs, you know we'll have some numbers (and messed up cars if they don't break them in properly first)

1/4 mile times isn't the suspenseful story here anyway. Given power, weight, gearing, cd, tires, etc, you could probably arrive at fairly accurate measures even without testing the real thing on a real track. The real question is how it goes around a road course. All those subjective tests are impossible to bench race.

You haven't been reading the 1/4 mile estimates have you? While I agree that you should be able to calculate a fairly accurate number, nobody can agree on what that number is

True, but then those are just numbers. Description of how she drives, not that's a story right there.

I still say GM should have let me test drive a prototype for "break-in" procedures. I woulda broke one for them.
