The Camaro was allowed to drive off property that day so I was relieved to hear the pictures weren't taken ON property and leaked out.

I can't give out any information that's not out already. Sorry guys. Damn integrity!

The car is damn sweet though. I feel like GM FINALLY scored a hit with the interior of this car. Oh and the exhaust note......is an eargasm.

BUY GM!

Its just so damn hard waiting for this beast. since the 2006 auto show.... I use to have 3 old camaros a 67. and 2, 68's. But the car has always been amazing and im sure gm will have us gasping at the SS. Im thinking around 550 horses for the SS because it will probably be similar to the cts-V's motor? Not sure.... but the pre-production release in 7 months, OMG CANT WAIT!!

If they thought they could take that car off property and not expect someone to take a picture of it....they were mistaken. I think they feel that everyone's seen all they can see with the new Camaro. I mean it was in a movie right?


Who's from AZ here?

Yes and no, a GTO with a Concept body was in the movie. I am sure you know that the Pre-production is a little different. We just want to know what the differences are and are willing to go through great lengths to find them legally. Right now, I think we would be happy with a sound bite of the motor.

I just moved to San Diego from Mesa.

You could secretly take pictures when no one is looking and distribute them to me via PM if you like. I'll say my friend at the factory took them.

i'm from AZ.
so does that mean i can get some inside info??? since we are like neighbors and all. well neighbors that live like 30+ miles away form each other and have never met, but neighbors none the less.

idea: lets go out i'll buy the beers and you tell me everything you know about the camaro.

Hey guys,

I was talking to a local dealer who's talking to some what he says are reliable sources at GM.

Has anyone heard of Saleen possibly making the SS engine? I mean didn't Saleen just recently make their own corp and they are no longer Saleen-Mustang? What do you guys think of that. Oh and the dealer guys said that the SS will be the 3rd and most superior model.

Comments?

^ Yep. It's called SMS Limited. Here's an excerpt from a news brief on the subject from Motortrend.com

Quote:
Apparently unable to stay away from the performance game for too long, Steve Saleen has announced a new company dubbed SMS Limited. Saleen says the company will offer a chance to create high performance and custom automobiles that are not based on Ford production vehicles or mechanicals. The separate company was needed due to Saleen’s insistence that Saleen-branded automobiles be linked exclusively with Ford products, as they have historically been.

“I am drawing upon 25 years of rich experience in the automotive industry to address the rapidly expanding global market of automotive lifestyle vehicles, technical performance parts, accessories, and apparel,” Saleen said in a recent statement. Saleen left his executive post at Saleen Inc. last year to take on a new CEO postion with the U.S. based exportation arm of Chinese automaker, Chamco.

This may seem like a ridiculous question, but how can you be sure that this is indeed the SS? Or is this pure speculation with a few facts?
