When do we think GM will tell us what the powertrain options will be?

If we all agree that the camaro can be driven off the lot in Feb of 2009.

When do you think we'll be told what the engine/tranny options will be?

I have no idea, As I feel right now, they could tell us tomorrow and it wouldn't be soon enough.

I mean at some point they will start building these engines in a factory somewhere. Or the next version of the "test fleet" will hit the streets. At some point they won't be able to keep it a secret, right?

When will we know?

You don't think we'll know before Indy? In a press release or something? I mean that would be cool to release all the information at the cars debut. But, like the 09 CST V and ZR1, that info was available prior to the car being seen wasn't it?

Seeing into the future....In August there will be a press release. No pictures. Just some basic numbers and options....

September and we'll see the beauty at Indy- and get the full lowdown on this car: All the "cool" things will be unveiled.

No facts above. Just my personal opinion.

With the production model making its debut at INDY, it'll be just a very short time after. For the longest time, I was thinking Oct 08. Since Indy is going to be Sept 19th or so....I'm going to have to stick w/ OCT!!!!!

Well...I want all the goodies. I seriously want the interior goodies...satellite or XM, Bluetooth, MP3, Home Link, all the "little things" that are so common in all the other cars that I've never had before.

Under the hood....something that can have the abbreviation "S.C."

It's going to be either an SS or Z28. It really doesn't matter which. I'll be happy either way having already owned both. Either way, I just want it to be semi-loaded w/ lotsa power. We'll see....prices, prices...

I'm fairly positive that we'll be looking at $40-45k as the top of the line, fully loaded, GT500 killer... that's probably as close to $50k as the Camaro will get from the factory... because, honestly, you can get a Z51 Corvette for $54k, so getting to $45k is going to be some lofty air.

oh, and much like Dragon, I'm betting on an August information update and Indy Bash complete release

Don't get me wrong, I want to know before then I think that the timeline that a couple people have already mentioned makes more sense now that I think about it. THE SOONER THE BETTER! I need to know if I need to trade in my '02 so I can start saying good-bye...
