Isn't it amazing though, that GM has so many unbelievable performance engines to choose from in this day and age? I still remember the late 70's when there was NOTHING.
I will be so glad when Gm gives us all the details(engines, paint, price, etc..). I Really Really am looking forward to this vehicle coming out and is like a drug that i can't get enough of.
thx camero(even though you remind me of the teacher on kung-fu, plenty of wisdom but it is over my head ) I appreciate every little tid bit you can give me.

Awesome pics BTW!!!

We've been told that it sounded like "a demon"! And had a whistling sound at idle

The first photo is the original. The second has been magnified.

My best friend use to live right down the street from the proving grounds. I can't believe there's a new Camaro here in Phoenix!

The Chevy Connection site has interviews with the Camaro designers; it might be tricky for some to navigate but worth it as this is the official Camaro site and where you can soon order your Camaro. By the way, it also shows the very first Camaro commercial: - listen to the option list, too.

I'd say there has to be at least 2 V8s coming then, because there is no way they'd have the only V8 available be S/C. A lot of us couldn't afford that and don't want that. Good to know our SRT8 and GT500 fighter is accounted for. Check that box.

The stripes, well personally I'd prefer the twin racing stripes as seen on the vert concept. If I couldn't get those, I'd want either the single broad stripe OR the hockey stick stripes seen here, but not both. Both seems a bit much. I'm withholding final judgment until I see them in person or at least a better picture. I cell phone cam pic taken outside in motion does not do it justice I'm sure.

TT C6, I don't think the Camaro will come anywhere near 4000 lbs. The G8 comes in less than that, and it is a full-size sedan with a number of luxury features. The Camaro has the same platform but shrunk considerably. It really is comparable in size to the Mustang. We have also been told by people close to the program that weight will not be a problem. So no worries. I'd say 3500-3700 lbs is closer to what we'll see. Its no Lotus, but it isn't a Challenger either.

I highly doubt that with all my heart. The G8 GT came in at under that.
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.

I'm not a fan of white because that is just a boring color on most cars. I like the vinyls on the side and hood, although I'd rather see 2 stripes down the center of the car.

Don't get too hyped up about it being different than the others. While this might be an indicator of what production paint schemes might be available, this is not a confirmation or official. This is just a spy shot of a car that is in testing. They might be testing how well the vinyl adheres to the paint for all we know. There is no indication that this is the SS, Z28, RS, base or any other potential trim. Don't worry about what we won't know for a few more months.

Cool pic. Adds to the intrigue.
I'll patiently wait as to what they will offer.
I don't think this pic adds a lot of clues.
