Maybe there is all somthing we may not know at all...

This regurgitation that every one is doing with brining the old back and and retro this and that. It's just not exiting anymore, or is it?

What if GM is thinking about comming up with a whole new trim level? Sure SS and Z/28 are the classics we want to see back but that's what Ford did with GT500 and Cobra right? Maybe there is something else we don't know and Fbodfather is just laughing about all the misleading info we keep feeding each other. It's like being in middle school again talking about the girl we hook up with and lied about it.

Taking the pessimistic route...

1. Z28 available at launch -- nope
Maybe not available at launch, maybe not available at all. Fashionably late to the party perhaps with a hot date (the vert)?

2. detuned 400 hp LS3 -- nope
NOT detuned maybe? or no LS3?

3. Retuning your engine -- nope
I don't know...he just said "several nopes"

4. SS later arrival -- nope
Maybe not late at all, maybe not coming right off, but I think we know the SS will come.

5. ...with LSA 550hp -- nope
Not the LSA? No 550hp? No LSA in the SS, maybe its in the Z28...oh the engine specualtion spools up again........

6. Many sources beleive this -- nope
Depends on who your sources are I suppose.

Okay - I just read the model /options packaging of the 1969 Camaro.

RS was apprearance package (headlight doors, etc)

SS was 350 V8 Muncie 4 speed

Z28 was super exotic, made for Trans Am racing series

So, now I think launch model will be SS LS3

With Z28 coming later with maybe supercharged V8, maybe DI Gen 5



You know, this car is fun and it isn't even available yet!

Finally got home, just watched it... holy crap! Like someone said earlier, that Camaro was roaring around the corners like it was trying to break the corner for making it turn! Sounded incredible, my faith remains strong!

I'll take whatever version sounded like this one! 2009 can not come fast enough!!! I can't take it!!!

Why would they detune the LS3 to 400hp? That's what the LS2 makes. I think it would only be slightly detuned to 420hp or 425hp.

We need to find a sound clip of the LS3 in the Corvette to compare.

Good point. Look at all the publicity this car is getting. GM is lucky this is happening. They can cut serveral millions off the advertising budget because of this.

Thus, setting a better price

You know, I saw this and discounted it.

But you make a good point. GM repeatedly says 400hp 6.0 liter V8.

Will they resurrect the LS2?

Tune in tomorrow...

A simple "nope" spawned a full page of posts...
I love reading these!

(Oh, and Gen V is a "nope" as well. At least not the first couple of years)

Well we know it is a v8 and we know it is manual. That's all I really need to know. I'm sure it'll be fast. Again, good enough for me.

It will have 400 hp
That engine will be a detuned LS3
There will be an SS
The SS will come later
It will make 550 hp
It will feature a Supercharger
The engine will be called an LSAMany sources believe this is the way it will be

So, there are many things that could be wrong there. We just don't have any clue as to what. But Fbodfather never said that everything was wrong . . . just 'several nopes'. So, Fbodfather please feel free to quote this post and put a 'nope' beside the things that aren't going to happen. It will relieve much of the confusion here. Thank you in advance.

it was worth a shot, wasn't it?

I put what I think are the "nopes" in red. I think the V8 at launch is going to be in the SS. It follows the current badging schedule of Chevy. I think the Z28 will the be the Hi-Po Gt500 Killer to follow. It has been speculated that the supercharged motor for the Z28 will be the LS8. Just my guesses!

My thoughts:

Does anyone else think its a coincidence that the site has problems when the Camaro video is posted? The hoards of Camaro fans and all other interested parties swamping the servers? Yup, this car has a following no doubt.

Secondly, after watching the video and reading the speculation fueled by it and Scott's post, all I have to say is: Who Cares? We know we're getting one of the sexiest, highest performance cars on the road for a very affordable price. Listen to that sound. Watch that thing go around the track. They could call the engine POS and it wouldn't change the fact that it is amazing. Woot.

supercharger

it is funny that they are so set on that being a z28 just by the sound of the car. If you take a look at the zr1 video, you can't hear the supercharger as it goes by, so how do they know, she could be supercharged.
