Howdy guys,

My first post here. Been lurking for a while. Planing to pick up a high end Camaro when it arrives. Either going to fall in love with the new car or jump to a Corvette. I have a great car in my Formula (currently in the process of rebuilding the LT1). My '70 SS is ready to roll as soon as I replace a leaking brake line. 496 cubes of mean metal. Butttt, I like the new body style.

The spy pics are excellent. The profile of the car leaves me a little wanting. Something about it doesn't seem right. Can't put my finger on it...

I like the headlights, grill is cool, but you can see the aluminum condensor, wheels rock, brakes are big, shape is sweet. It's gotta have a wicked bad motor though. 400 hp ain't gonna be enough for me. It's gonna need a stop by the speed shop after I buy it. I'm more of a 600 hp man...

My $.02
E.

Well my friends uncle who works for gm said Horspower will be similar to the caddillacs cts-v so you are looking at approx 550hp for the high end model this will probably be around the gt500 price roghly45-50k, but if your looking for 600 and have the bank account for it i reccomend the corvette zr1!

I also like the way the tail lights are looking. They've got a look when activated that reminds me of a serpent's eye.

Love the pics! These are really great.

Is this not going to be the production grill? I know that the headlights will change, and this dosn't match the concept, but the pre-prod grill looks pretty convincing and has the cut outs for the bow tie. I figured that they had changed the grill and just left the bow tie off the pre-prod's.

I read most teh threads but don't remember running across this before.

Thanks.

Should be halo's and will most likely be the original grill you see on the concept.

I'm pretty sure the vent at the front wont be open on either model because the bonnet (hood) catch is directly behind it (it's been said..)

Looking good so far. Still needs bigger wheels - those arches must be huge to make 20 inch wheels look small.

I've read that too. If that is true, the fake scoop needs to go. Looks as bad as the stick on LUND hood scoops people put on their trucks

Head lights fake

The head lights look too generic to be put in production. They must be just putting those ones on just to fool us or something. That is just too bland to fit in with the rest of the camaro styling

Yes, it's been said time and time again by GM insiders, those are not the production headlights.

They were put together just for testing purposes.
