Your sources must be wrong...I heard that, based on the success of the mule linked to below, GM is going with snakeskin interior and exterior for the Camaro AND Corvette. They're calling it "slippery performance coating."

I heard that if you mention "fbodfather" when ordering, that you get a free upgrade to the Cummins 30L diesel with 6 turbos, and the custom '93 pace car paint job. And, that Scott would personally pay off your mortgage! It has to be true, i heard it from the dealership (they already have 6 on the lot).

I read on Jalopnik that there is going to be a alternative fuel option called "Mr. Fusion." Apparently, this device will enable an energy level close to that of a nuclear reactor and allow timetravel with ordinary household waste as fuel. It will be available as an option through GMPP so you can roll the cost into the vehicle financing. It will go head-to-head with the Mustang's next generation Shelby model and the Don Garlitts' Edition Challenger.

Update, Update, Update....

I just read in a reliable source....a magazine, actually its the MAGAZINE OF BS THAT WE CONJURED UP AT THE LAST MINUTE SO THAT WE COULD HAVE A COVER PAGE, magazine. (seriously, its a real magazine, big name though)....

Otherwise it said that the camaro will NOT make production....

it said that the world was not ready for such a bada$$ car with all the options listed above... is this really true, i mean a writer wouldn't just make up this just to sell a few magazines right...

I've also heard that the Camaro's exhaust is going to come in three scents: Pine, Beer, and Mountan Spring. Really, the dealer wouldn't make something like this up. He swears by it. Also there's gonna be a new eco-friendly engine option, it's going to run on three grey squirrels with a chipmunk overdrive, this sucker'll run on peanuts.

I heard that engine was actually going to be the gerbil-powered 4-banger. It will be measured in gerbilpower (gp) instead of horsepower.

I heard another version of the Mr. Fusion post above. You will be able to time travel but only back until 1967 where you will be able to purchase a first gen of your choice and have it stored by GM for 41 years free of charge. Then when you come forward in time. The swedish bikini will deliver your brand new untouched imaculate 1st gen. All for an upgrade option price of 25 cents and the option name is McFly85

Thumbs up I heard

that each one will come with 4 Concrete Blocks so we can remove the tires (to put on Truck) and put them up on blocks as soon as we return home to our trailers!

I heard that would be called the Rivalry Option, offered free with the Top Dawg (TD) trim, which, based on it's ghetto spelling, will roll on 24" DUBs, feature hydraulics, include neons under the car, and a free tagged vinyl on each side of your hood gang—holla!

I'd heard that the center caps on the rims are going to be pure silver with gold insets on the chevy emblems. I'd also heard that the tires are being made of a special compound that no matter how burn-outs you do, they'll never wear out and they'll also adjust to weather conditions.

The Camaro will have 6 engines. 5 will basically be the same except for the number of cylinders. the I4 will have a displacement of 3.0L and will be basically 1/2 of an LS2. The V6 will be an LS2 with the last two cylinders choped off. Z28 will be the LS2. SS will feature a 7.5L V10. ZL1 will feature a 9.0L V12. OSMG (Oh Sweet Mother of God) will have a double-supercharged 21L W24 based off of the LS7, 2 V12 variants sharing a single crankshaft, each with their own supercharger. Power output will be unknown for this engine, the dyno's at GM only go up to 2000 hp before they explode.

I heard this from a friend of a friend who talks to the dog of a guy who knows a person who empties the trash at GM's corporate headquarters. I regard this info as holy scripture. I want my OSMG Camaro!

It's going to feature a 100% titanium body and be able to travel through time.
