Definitely think it's a shopped picture, but it does look damn good.

You should check out the dealers thread...good and bad dealers...because you shouldn't settle to pay any mark-up, Scott told us never to pay mark-ups. In fact, he said that there are mark-ups "just say NOOOOO!!!!" $27k sounds nice Also...Z/28 may be wrong... However, 400+ HP is more than enough for me too!

I think that the symbols look really good on the Camaro...but I'm still wishing for GM to incorporate the Camaro symbol into the grill...Maybe it can be an option

One more thing! I'm really REALLY glad that the Camaro is making it into magazines again! (especially Motortrend )

I think if I wait a good 6 months to a year, I'll be able to find the high trim model for about 35k. I'm prepared for a $40k car but I pride myself on my being able to find a deal. Question is, will I be able to wait that long. I may just get a loaded V8 for that. 400 hp will sufice, maybe.

I've have been losing patience lately. I don't know how long I'll last.

5. Pricing? Available trims are also forecast to include a V-8 Z28 and, eventually, a high-output (say, at least 500 horses) SS (Super Sport) edition to combat the Shelby GT500. Given Bob Lutz's proclamation that Camaro pricing will shadow the Mustang's, that would put a base Z28 at about $27,000 and a base SS at $44-$45K.

MAGAZINE SPECULATION. God I hate how people take magazines seriously when we know GM hasn't released any price info.

PLEASE STOP TAKING MAGAZINES', ESPECIALLY MOTORTRENDS ARTICLES FOR TRUTH! THEY SAID A FEW MONTHS AGO IT WAS GOING TO HAVE AN LS2!!

ya i agree they have no clue...no more than us at least...

is there any chance we would be able to get them without dealer mark up.... sry for the dumb question but why do the dealers mark up so much...do they make anything if they sell it without that extra mark up!???

Well, I think that the magazines are doing what we are doing here at Camaro5... A ton of what we have is speculation as well...the only difference is that they print the info in magazines that are read my millions of people possibly. I don't know...>>>

Price: We've been told all along that it would be comparable to a similarly equipped Mustang...$27k sounds pretty darn close, doesn't it?? And the top-level V8? Well, if they've used the GT500 as a benchmark...well, then I think the prices they gave were SOMEWHAT close. I'd have put it closer to $39k...but who knows.

Trim: We all agree that there will most likely be a Z28 and an SS...but there are a lot of people here that are speculating which name will be associated with which engine.

Mindz, I'm not trying to undermine what you said...In fact, I think what you said is PERFECT...for everyone, not just magazines (I know you may not actually be saying that).

You know I did the same the other day when I got the Saab washed after winter. It looked reeeeaaaalllllyyy nice when clean. Then I drove it today and it had gotten a layer of pollen on it and just wasn't as impressive anymore.

Anyone who thinks a 500hp car will be $35k is nuts. Expect more than GT500 money. I'd be happy wih 400hp reasonably optioned under $35k.

I won't be happy unless I can get a V8 for under $28,500. Anything higher is taking away from the appeal of the Camaro. The Camaro has always been an affordable, fast car. If GM takes affordable out of the equation, it isn't really a Camaro, regardless of how fast it is. Fortunately, we know that GM is going to consider price very carefully.

Silver bow ties for me....I have always hated the gold colored ones...I can't stand them on my Silverado....okay, sure, I haven't done anything to change that either, so they must not bother me that much, but this will be my Camaro damnit. It will bother me.

calm down- nobody's taking anything seriously... sheesh -so sensitive- on the other hand, GM did say that the Camaro is going to be a premium priced vehicle.

You guys gotta take this into consideration: By the time a magazine goes to press it's articles are already outdated thanks to the internet. The image there is a photoshopped version of a pic taken a couple of months ago. Do you notice that when they cover events that they all happened about two months before? That's because while the story and the information may be somewhat correct AT THE TIME, after it gets edited and published and gets to the newsstand it's already outdated. Magazine journalists and editors really know no more than we do, but they have to put SOMETHING on their pages to give the cavemen who don't have internet access something to read. Therfore they speculate given their current knowledge of the car market, and rumors that they have heard(just like all the rumors WE have heard). It really isn't anybody's fault. Just take the magazine articles with a grain of salt and come here or got to any one of the automotive blogs(jalopnik, autoblog, leftlanenews) to get the most current information on our beloved American icon. Too easy.
