It was explained in another thread that the gas cap location was a safety hazard I think, so thats what that change is about. Mirrors are also a safety thing I would assume, I doubt you could see anything in those concept mirrors and if they were meeting regulations.

Yeah Balzonya4head!!! I'm in Zephyrhills and a black one passed right by me and I tried to chace it donw but I was in my wifes Kia or as I call it Kisashit. Dude I got my Camera in my car were ever I go now cuz I'm all over tampa. They may be testing in Dade City and Brookksville were all their roads are like hilly and winding and stuff. Perfect for taking a fast car driving. I want to be a Chevy engineer for a day!!! Damn that car looks nice!!!

I-75

Anyone who has driven that road knows that, off season, you have the road to yourself.
Speed is not an issue.
Some years ago, in July, I hit cruise control at 135mph and was PASSED by an RX-7.
You can't tell me they were on that highway to "check out the humidity".
Best
Ricky

I like the white. I'm actually starting to like it more than the black.

No one really knows. Some think the white one is a V6 since the wheels seem to be smaller and the front clip vent is closed. The black seems to be a V8


Welcome to the site.

If you haven't already, do some searches for the common stuff like SS, Z28, engines, transmissions, LS, gas cap, headlights, b-pillar and you'll find loads of information.

Enjoy

Balz, that's one heck of a first post. My very warmest welcome to you!

As far as the accents being black, well I know on a lot of base level trims the mirrors and other stuff is black plastic rather than body colored. Maybe this represents a base trim line?

Pretty cool, wonder if they'll wander up to the panhandle to Pensacola? Also, anybody notice they are going to call it a 2010 model instead of 09? At least I named myself right!

The cars are here in tampa. I've seen the white one on monday and followed it for 19 miles. North of Tampa. I have seen the Black one today. I will not mention the road they are using because, I think that it's a hot spot for new car testing. I've seen Audi test at least 4 cars last year on the very same road 8 months before they came to the market.

I've followed where the OEM's test. I don't know if they all do, but I've seen quite a few. I75 in Florida between Naples and I4/i75 is a hot spot. The Ford guys used to stay in Naples all the time. Marfa Texas is another hot spot. I've seen quite a few out that way. Pueblo to Denver is another hot spot and out i70 towards Utah. I chased the Porsche SUV through Colorado one year when they were testing it, but I had the advantage I was driving a BMW. In Naples I was having dinner at the Naples Pier and the guys from Ford came in. They were testing the Crown Victoria Police Car, the previous year (must have been 94?) Chevy was testing the Camaro there. I got pictures of a magazine testing the S2000 Honda outside of Vale/Avon too. It seems there are hot places to test/introduce cars.

Now show me a Convertible being tested.

Email the videos to yourself, and upload them to youtube.

with this much testing, i'm pretty sure we can dismiss the idea that there's going to be any engine we've seen before in these. i know they test all cars, but this seems to be a lot of extensive engine testing to stick some vette reject engine in there...let's go gen v! and i agree, what a great week!
