Best part was that he said he had no part in the exterior design. All GM.

Z28 shell?? My opinion, yes.

nice job GM.

Heh-heh....

listen to Leno.....lighter weight, handling.....how awfully familiar....

You know what I love most about this car? All the functional stuff. The front brake cooling ducts, and the rear brake cooling ducts. I especially like the rear one, because it replaces those gills and puts something useful there.

The front facia, however -- takes the cake...it is PURE heaven....absolutely beautiful. Can anyone guess what my current desktop picture is?

There's a couple things i question though. He says it's smaller. Well i guess he means weight, but once you put two turbo's in there---it's not like the don't weigh anything. Plus, with twin turbos, don't you lose some mpg from the regular V6?

It would be interesting to see if a TT V6 is really what the Z28 will have and the SS will get a bump in power. Would follow most peoples beliefs that the Z28 is more of a track car and the SS is more for power especially since the TT V6 has around the same HP as the current SS. But who knows, its all speculation.

Simply put, GM should offer this version to the public as a 'new' Camaro line.
Call it the JL6. (Jay Leno 6cyl)

Also that JLTTV6 is sex, pure pure sex.
