I might try and score a set of those Recaro seats for my car, they look comfy... I like the tail lights... The rest of the body changes? Not doing anything for me, I don't feel the urge to run out and buy one, like when I originally saw the concept 5th gen and I knew that I would own one.

Ls7? Great. How much is that gonna cost? Interested to see pricing for the Z/28, but not interested in buying. I'll be holding onto my 2010 at least until the 6th gen comes out; fingers crossed they can pull off something amazing like they did with the original introduction of the 5th gen.

I AM however interested to get my hands on that air intake though to play with. I wonder if that's a Z/28 only thing, or perhaps available on the SS also.

Great...now I hate my Camaro. And the pictures released yesterday made the redesign look a lot worse than it is. Not too bad.

I'll say what I said before - I'm not a fan of the hood vent. I know why it's there now - but I still wish they executed it better. I've liked the front fascia treatment all along, the taillights look better with a professional pic and not what we saw on a SD broadcast (proper lighting and all that).

Throwback to 1969 - that's what they are aiming for and I will agree, they hit that mark. The car is honestly a race car you can drive on the street. Buy on saturday, race on sunday.

They've done good in the mechanics department. The car just needs a different hood and it would be perfect. I'm glad they brought back the Z/28 - I'm on the fence about the fact that the car still weighs in @ 3900lbs (the ZL1 is 4100 - 300 = 3900lbs).

Still a pig - but the LS7 will help with that a bit. Still. If GM plans to keep the Camaro Z/28 moniker alive through to the alpha platform, I think that I will be choosing that route. We'll have to see...

Need to check your math a little. 4100-300 = 3800.

Then you may as well have gotten a ZL1 because that is the performance car for those that have to have comfort and performance.
That's probably why I'll go with a ZL1. Badass car that Z28, but taking away the stereo plus that rear-end still looks like Looks like an old Nissan 200SX. I'll pass and go with a 2011-2013.

Looks pretty good. Still not a fan of the taillights though. I wonder how much of the 300 pound drop is from no AC? Always nice to see GM step up. Putting more pressure on Ford to deliver with the 2015 Mustang.

I agree, aside from the LS7, Recaro Seats, and maybe the wheels. I still love my 12' SS body style, for the price difference i could probably drop in an LS7 and get the recaro seats...lol

In the picture it has a radio, but maybe that's just a rendering. Does it really matter?

They put the LS7 in a camaro. Does a radio really come close to that?

Oh...dear...God
I won't be able to afford it but good job GM and to the Camaro team. This is a middle finger to Ford and then some. I can see this car smoking some real high dollar Euro stuff.

"At least 500hp" I bet the real number is a little north of that. Finally a car for me, no frills just performance. I never turn on my current radio anyway, AM doesnt do it for me.

They said Recaros will be available in the SS models, so if I get a 1LE that is one option for me. Can't wait for pricing because I'm hoping a loaded 1LE might be close enough to convince myself to take the plunge.

Oh corse the Mustang is laggin behind! It has 125 less Cubic Inches lol. Its Fords turn now in 2015 to come out with somethnig better. Then it will be GM's turn again. The Z/28 will be a bad ass car! I dont see it flying off the dealerships though. To impractical for most drivers, and with the price tag im sure it will have, it wont be worth it for most. I see it selling well the first few months when all the z/28 loyalist, and hard core enthusiast line up to get their hands on it. I think the ZL1 will out sell it its just a better bargin for most. People have grown so accustomed to all the little features that should have never been put in cars like these. I give GM props for making a car like this the way it should be, with out all the creature comforts!

Im wondering where all the people that hated it yesterday are? I will admit it looks a lot better in this color but its still ugly. The front is fine, but that rear should never have the z/28 badge on it! Stil is going to be a good performing car. i cant wait to see some track and strip times from it.
