Thumbs up SLP Panther Camaro Limited Edition Announced. 560-700HP Versions to Be Made


Featured on Camaro5 HOMEPAGE


So it turns out there will be a panther edition of the camaro. But it'll be coming from SLP, not GM. Will be revealed at NADA in Vegas, Feb. 3rd - 6th.

Quote:
What started as a GM project car in 1965 has become one of the rarest Camaros ever. For 2012, SLP Introduces a New Generation of Panther...

Only 100 560/585/600HP and 45 700HP Supercharged Panthers will be built in coupe, convertible, manual or automatic.

So, I am going out on a limb here...the Panther is SLP's new "ZL-1" as they cannot use the name past 2011, right?

I think it will be cool...and if they include a bottle of SEX PANTHER with each car...how awesome would THAT be?

The Panther is a limited, numbered car. Your choice of ZL585 or ZL600 if I remember correctly, and can be either a coupe or convertible. Will be available in only black with gold graphics.

So far rather underwhelming from that teaser image. The same boring wheels SLP always uses with a different finish, and trapezoidal fog light surrounds. Not even a more aggressive hood? And it'll probably retail for $65k+? No thanks.

So is the "Panther" supposed to be an all Blacked out version? Just don't know otherwise how the word Panther & Camaro go together. The Front bumper looks like the one from the 2011 SLP ZL1.

I think this thing will be a beast. They will most likely change up some of the exterior options, to add a bit of the aggression we are seeking. If it comes from SLP it will be quality. But yes, time for popcorn and real reviews as it comes out. I'll try to see if there is anything they are willing to divulge publicly.

But definitely a potential beast. I like the wheels. Not as aggressive as others, but classy.

Looks like a 600 HP decal on the hood.
I'm interested in seeing this car but it just looks like a Camaro SS with various SLP goodies.

Oh no... Now they all know about our Shrimp SS's j/k

Camaro still has a good ring to it, but I agree, Panther is aggressive. I hope SLP puts together a great rendention here. I'm hopeful.

SLP cars use to have a lot of luster in my eyes.

but then of course that luster has faded since the ZL1's announcement. lol

I'd be impressed if a tuner did a performance package supported/R&D'd with/by GM. Warranted by GM, by any Chevrolet dealer...

Aftermarket packages with no factory support.... pass.

Russell - That would be SLP. They do have a high price mark, but they are just that. A partner with GM and you retain your warranty. I get my car back in a couple weeks from being tuned out by SLP to their ZL600 specs and I will retain my warranty to be used at any GM dealer.

I agree since the ZL1 has come out, they needed to add in a new flavor to keep things interesting. And it seems they are doing just that.

I know what you mean... My timing was a little off, perhaps I would have chosen differently. It all depends on how the car is when it comes back.

yeah.... no offense but I wonder why would anyone choose an SLP car over a ZL1 once they come out?

the ZL1 is cheaper, has some sweet upgraded goodies and in most cases will probably be faster.
