The "rings" are not rings they are emmissions test ports.

In case you're wondering how I know I worked at the Milford proving grounds for a couple of years with the truck group on the gen IV powertrain in my youth.

Approximately when does GM put out new model year information for Camaro? Trying to decide on ordering a 2013 or just wait for a 2014.

Meh - I'm not biting. I'm hopeful though. There are no other apparent chassis changes that stand out. Standard SS brakes, funky facia, funky exhaust. I see the test probes and maybe pitot tubes, but show me a 7000-redline tach and intake manifold, and I'll bite. I recall those intakes to be a little distinctive.

I could see a LT1 going in there though. When we look back, C4 got LT1 in '92 and Z28 got it in '93; C5 got LS1 in '97 and Z28 got it in '98. We know C7 gets LT1 in '14, so I could imagine a '15 LT1 in SS.

Exactly and I hate the V6 fascia thing...

You know - I don't think it'd make enough power to justify, but we don't know official numbers yet.

That's highly unlikely, if anything it would most likely be classed a Z28.

How about instead of a V6 front fascia with a mailslot, they give us a V8 front fascia without a mailslot

I bet that would look better
