And that whistle is most likely a supercharger meaning that this is almost certainly the GT500 killer.
Originally the two wide stripes on the hood and trunk were Z/28 items on first gen. Camaros, after they started putting them on the first gen. Indy Pace Car version (which was a SS and not a Z/28) they started putting them everywhere, no longer had to be a Z/28. I don't like these stripes either, just does not do it for me, no problem as I'll just order stripe delete.

i would love the idea of being able to chose between the 3.6,ls3, ls7, and the ls8. i would definately pick the ls7 also.

Get up this morning go to church. come home to find all this...

"sounded like a demon" and a "whistle" Oh man if this isn't proof that god answers prayers, I don't know what is....

Hell as of right now you could leave the jacked up prepro lights on there, put pinstripes on it and paint it Don Johnson - Miami Vice Pink and I'd take it.

As far as I'm concerned, this is the best camaro news I've heard since they brought her back. HELL YEAH!

Everyone got pretty excited pretty quick. I don't want to sound glass half empty, but they are just stickers.
I just don't want to see all the "dissapointed" threads when/if it turns out there will not be a supercharged version and the whistle noise was nothing.

The whistle of a supercharger is 100% clear to anyone who post on these boards. I'm sure if it was something else they would know so.

awesome looking. But I'll wait til a 'hole in the hood' is made. I'm just drawn to that look more than the original-IMO.

Awesome photos of the new car these last couple months. I hope it really comes out a winner.

I've never been a fan of a single fat stripe; Le Mans stripes have always been more to my tastes, but the hockey stripes are pretty nice.

That being said, I'm sure this was probably some testers screwing around rather than a real stripe package.

As for the "supercharger whine" I thought we'd just heard a few days ago that there was only going to be 1 V6 and 1 V8 at launch... I sincerely doubt they'd debut with a S/Ced V8 so maybe the whistle is something else? Or perhaps they're just testing the S/C for future release.

Jenny Craig was called. Weight is a high priority for the designers. The Camaro is NOT a Challenger.

I'm not too worried, and 4000lbs is WAY out in left field, as far as Im concerned.
The G8 GT does weigh over 4000 lbs. Most of the reviewed versions weighed over 4100.

Right then...I do remember that. I must've been mixing up the V6 weight w/ the GT model...isn't there are model that weighs in @ 3995 or something like that?

The official curb weight of the G8 GT is 3995, with a full tank of gas and fluids its closer to 4100. But for reference everyone uses curb weight becuase things like fluids/gas/driver are all dependent on the situation.

You are correct that you don't need a vent opening for a forced induction car. It would just add to the overall impression of the car. The whinnig I was reffering to on a high compression engine was by using a gear setup instead of belts. Perhaps they have put in a "Blue Devil" engine just to see what it would be like?

Anyone else notice this got picked up on Jalopnik already?

They also refer to us as a "very aggressively marketed forum" whatever that means...

How soon we forget the '03-'04 Cobars, 380+rwhp bone stock. But I'm so stoked to hear there is a whine coming from that beast! When I first heard the LS9 was making its way into the ZR1 Vette I crossed my fingers for a Camaro variant, LS8 anyone? More ponies are just a pulley swap away. God I need a hankey!
