sorry man but I don't see that happening the SS is Chevrolet's top dawg in everything the Silverado SS and all of GM's other SS's. The SS Camaro will be top dawg again.

HA! I like the way this is going! Now it's getting good. As far as the SS name, GM uses that waaaaaaaay too much. Everything is now an SS and that rubs me the wrong way. They should save that for the top of the line. But, we all know how GM is; they keep suprising us with everything. Moose sounds pretty sure, there. Take the bet. I wanna see who wins!

I will not deny that there are a lot of SS vehicles out there; however, on all of the SS models that badge does represent the top of the line performance package for that specific model.

I would be very very suprised if the SS doesn't return as the top package for the Camaro. It just would not make sense from a marketing perspective otherwise. Those of us who actually know that at one point in time the SS was NOT the top dawg are relatively few in numbers. The greater majority of soon-to-be Camaro owners view the SS at the best of the best Chevy has to offer becasue of their recent marketing campaigns.

I admit, "SS" Camaro to me meant "top dog" as well.

That being said, as I've heard it said and seen it written, "any Chevrolet can be a "SS", but only a Camaro can be a "Z28". If you look back in time, the "Z28" has alot of history attached to it, re; Trans Am racing. Therefore, I see Chevrolet naming the "top dog" "Z28" and tying that history into the new "top dog".

man you are right on the Z28 it has had more time on the road than the SS but that is why I think GM will make the SS top because it was always rarer to have a SS than a Z28. And they only made the SS a few years. But that is part of my reason.But we all have different opions and that is what makes us human and this is a good thing.

Now that is a bet i would be willing to make.... the ZL1 (or some variation thereof) WILL be the top dog. GM would be crazy not to produce at the very least a limited number of these cars. Just think of the publicity Camaro would get. If they produced a limited number I think the Corvette group would be ok with it and would not feel like Camaro is intruding. I for one would be blown away if they do not release a Camaro with the LS7 or LS9 or whatever they will have out by then.

A car like that would be the perfect way to usher in this new generation of Camaros

the new Camaro sketches of the convertible are really cool. It is one of the only cars that look good as a convertible. (I hate convetibles) I wold have to see it with the top up. I hate soft top convertibles so I hope they come out with the hardtop convetible right away. but the probably wont because of weight and price restirctions.

Completely agree. This new body looks great as a convertible. I think it's because the overhangs aren't too long. Usually cars with long rear and front overhangs ends up looking insanely long when in convertible form.

Bruno your right, this Camaro looks perfect because of it's short decklid, and long hood, and low roofline.
