All kidding aside, I don't think the RS or SS has ever been officially called a Rally or Super Sport since the 2nd gen. I haven't seen anything in the 2010 Camaro literature that spelled them out. Has anybody?

We have, in the past, referred to the SS as "super sport" --

On the other hand, I'm ancient and thus still find myself calling the RS a "Rally Sport" -- and that's what RS stands for.....however, nearly every member of the Camaro team says "RS" -- not "Rally Sport"

(.......of course we have pages and pages of acronyms and people use the acronym in normal conversation within the walls of GM....)


(i.e. "....In the PET meeting, we discussed putting RS emblems on the IP of the IVER prior to PPAP testing and the VLE team shot it down because of an APE..." ..... "hey - wait a minute -- what's 'APE?'......" ".......it's a large furry animal but that's not important now..."........)

In the Jay Leno's Garage video with him driving the SS he talks about the 4 pack gauges and refers to them as the "Rally pack". The gauges have nothing to do the RS package right? RS basically is just a few appearance upgrades (ditch molding, wheels, headlights, taillights, spoiler) to give the car a sportier look....

Correct - the gauge package comes standard on the 2LT and 2SS.

The RS/Rally Sport has always been an appearance package -- not a performance package.

(....I must say - the halo lights give the new Camaro a very sinister appearance......)

(.....I've heard Mustangs scream..........)



(......OK, I made that last part up........)



(.............no I didn't...........)

In the (Product Evaluation Testing?) meeting, we discussed putting (Rally Sport) emblems on the (Instrument Panel) of the (Integration Vehicle Engineering Release) prior to (Pre-production applications...process?) testing and the (Very...Large...Elephant...) team shot it down because of an (Accounting...Production...Emergency...)...
