It was what made it awesome, but was also its achilles heel.

Success will depend on the price. If they do a mid 50's and compete with the Corvette then maybe some volume for them........................mid 70s and you can say also ran. JMO

I don't think it's gonna be near the $50's.

I don't think so either. What was the old Viper? mid 70's? I think they are a Z06 competitor or even ZR1.

Always felt claustrophobic being around or sitting in a Viper. Never attracted to them. Even if it was $ competitive with a Camaro (which it won't be). Yes.. it will be targeted at Z06/Zr1

I'll agree. If anything they may have moved a little more upscale benefitting from the association of the other Fiat brands.

I think the features that are going to be on the care make it more appealing to a wider audience. but not true to the original car.

no but I see lots of bunnies running around here.

Hey Camaros,

I hope Yall had a nice Easter, complete with daredeviled eggs, candy, and hasenpfeffer. I know I did.

I wanted to tell Yall that I announced in another thread (a color thread) that I am waiting for the '13 DUSK/Berlin/(Atlantis?)/Blue Ray ZL1.

I'm also as you may recall a Techie Trekkie, so the touch screen appeals to me as well.

As it turns out, we are also supposed to close on our new house in Colorado Springs this Friday... the 13th.

I've always said 13 was my lucky number. Now that quip is proving itself to be true.

I've also always said that Friday the 13th is only unlucky when it falls on a Monday.
(That is, unless you happened to be a Knight Templar.)

I'll live vicariously with you guys getting your shiny new '12s until I can join you and I promise not to be blue until then.

Can't take credit for that one. I did find it in the other thread though.
