Looks like an awesome car. But for me, already having a V8, a lot of these items I can get aftermarket. Mylink, no thanks, give me a 7 inch Pioneer/Kenwood/Alpine. You get all the same gadgets with better interface. Sway bars, plenty of options out there. Black wheels, no thanks. I want the hood and hash stipes and the splitter.

Thank you GM! A sportier Camaro that is more affordable. Wonder what my G8 is worth? Can anybody comment on how practical a child seat is in the back of a Camaro?

Everyone remember what Fbodfather said, this car is designed for the track, its not going to ride as nice as a 2SS. For me, I need the better ride from time to time because my wife has back issues, so having the touring mode on the ZL1 is key. Almost bought a bumblebee last week, but decided if I wait another year I can get the ZL1.

drive my daughter to her school every morning in my Camaro, the back seat is perfect for little ones (5 year old)... not so perfect for adults.

This makes me reconsider my dreams of a 2SS 'vert. A 2SS 1LE to go with my 1LE TTA for similar money (possibly less) is very appealing.

Fbodfather, haters gonna hate. Nothing you can do about it.

We have two boys, 9 and 5 who loved to ride in the back seat in car seats. The only issue was to move the passenger seat slightly forward for leg room. A rearward facing car seat would be a problem.

Awesome news! Is that a brake light on the spoiler or is it designed with the back cut out of it? (hoping for the latter)

For those of you wishing to upgrade their current Camaros with MyLink, Fbodfather may correct me if I'm wrong but I think it's going to be integrated too much to simply be a head unit conversion.

Before everyone goes running out to their Chevy dealer to buy the MyLink head unit, better make sure it's not integrated into the BCM or ECU, and that the wiring harnesses are the same.

One more question: Will the 1LE be available at the start of 2013 production?

And tell CAFE to go to hell, this is a Camaro, LOL.
actually it is. YOU can do what you want with your car - we, on the other hand, have to meet CAFE - and we have to ensure that the vehicle will meet expectations at all temps in all climates and have great driveability......that's not easy to do. As mentioned earlier -there is much work to do in order to 'get it right' - -

Again - the 1LE is NOT for everyone - it's a bit harsher than the SS.

My lil dude has been riding in back of mine since he was 3 and now he is turning 4 and still loves it! He has a Simpson car seat and enjoys himself back there. It may help I told him its his car when he turns 16

The car looks great but no weight reduction or bump in horsepower? No thank you.

Blue isn't coming back anytime soon they tried and it failed again. So I wouldn't hold my breath on any shade of blue.


But im sure Fbodfather can give you an educated guess instead of my pure guessing

If the dusk concept is coming into production, then they will be making another blue Camaro. God knows they need one they killed the only good looking production blue back in 2010....

I think a blue will be coming for 2013. They need Stryker Blue!

Fbodfather, you are correct - there is a market for this car and I am definitely in it! This is great news! I am so glad GM didn't stick to the tired boring mentality that you can't have a great road race car and have some freaking technology in it - touchscreen, Nav, camera and all that makes this car sooooo much more desirable. I'll never understand why people want to spend $40k+ on a car with nothing in it except a seat. Seriously boring. What does all the tech add, like 10 pounds? And how many people spend that kind of money on a car that they only race? Like 2 people maybe. I would own a Boss but for the unbelievably boring, plain interior. I drive my car every day and I want some gadgets to play with and some excitement on the inside as well - I sit inside the car, not on the hood. I sold my SS and bought the 2011 GT for that reason (among others, sorry but the GT premium interior rocks) - the first Ford I have ever bought, btw. And, for the love of God, it is 2012 not 1969, tech is what makes it all so awesome. This car will bring me back home to GM. Great job, I love it!
