Since when is this a competition between fellow GM owners? I thought it was supposed to be US vs imports and Camaro vs Mustang vs Challenger. I don't recall the Cobalt being invited to join the party.

Besides, if they want to put their performance level trim up against ours I don't think you'll find anyone willing to put their money on the Cobalt.

I can agree with at least some bits of everything posted so far. I don't really care that an I-4T will get into the car. I think that's cool so it can perhaps appeal to some ricers (as much as I don't really like them) - HEY, more sales is good.

Like many others, the price is what has got my brain in a tizzy. I'm not trying to pay around $35K for a regular V8 and $45K for a S/C model (yeah - NOTHING has been confirmed; I'm just randomly throwing numbers out there for reference.) If I want to pay for "premium", I'll go to BMW. If I want to pay $45K for a high performance car, I'll look closer at the 'Vette. HOWEVER, I'm a Camaro guy down to the ink on my arm. BOWTIE BABY!!! I can understand a little higher price for a better car; no doubt. GM can't afford to mess this up though, with all the hype.

I've been looking forward to this car since I saw the Concept. All I could think was that I was in love for the first time, with a car, at first sight. That wasn't the case with either of my 4th Gens. I can say that for the 5th Gen. though.

I believe, like it's been suggested already, that we should blow-off some steam, and keep everything in perspective. We don't really know anything yet, and there is a lot of speculation right now. We'll all just have to wait for a few more months before jumping off a cliff or shooting ourselves in the face. There are too many people dedicated to this car to let something detrimental happen to it, and let us all down.

I'll try to keep faith, as Father has said

Rodimus prime made a very valid point on the cobalt forums, although I don't think the name calling in necessary, his points say it all.

The thing that I dont understand is why these dumb ****ing rednecks are bitching about a 4 cylinder?

Do yourself all a big favor and look up how many years the Camaro was produced and look up how many years out of that time it failed to have an engine with 260HP with any motor size or combination.

Quite frankly from 1975-1993 it failed to have any motor at that power level with any size motor or number of cylinders. Also the LNF powerband wise is as good as or equal to any modern V8 with even 2x the displacement.

The current 4.0 mustang V6 is only 210hp, why is besting them by 50hp such a bad thing?

Get your head out of your ass and start living in the year 2008 instead of 1978

On another note. Anyone see the Camaro in Tampa still? I've got my Camera in my car ever since I broke the story by seeing it but never got a picture and I really want a picture.

You can guranfriggintee it that if the base v8 is going to be more than the GT, then the SS is going to be more than the GT500, so, about 42,500 plus an even larger markup considering the car hasn't been out for like 5 years.

uhh rednecks??? i beg to differ. just because the fact is that i think that the camaro should stay true to its roots. and just cause i live in western nebraska DOESN'T mean im a REDNECK. and if it doesnt have a v-6 or v-8 it isnt a muscle car( in my book) its more a ricer than anything. and i kno that it isnt replacing any of the motors. im more of a old school minded person. and i was born in '92, so its kinda impossible for me to quit living in '78.

i kno u didnt write the post and im srry if it seems like i said you did . and i hate the fact that people think just cause i live in western rural nebraska they think im a redneck. and i think its a big leap for chevy to do this and i think that there could be some good things to come out of this, and with some R&D it could be sweet.

Get more what? independent rear suspension. The avarage buyer could care less. If you walked up to 80% of the Mustang owners you see and ask them what kind of axle they have they would not know. The reason i'm stuck on this car is the styling so I will pay the premium but the avrage buyer that they have to attract to sell 100,000 units is gonna care. That means more Mustangs sold and dissapointing sales for the Camaro.:(
