#2, this car also has 300hp with those 26/27 mpg. In 2002, you had to settle for 200hp.

There isn't a noticeable difference between 27 and 29. you might be talking a couple hundred dollars a year......

The method that the EPA uses now to arrive at MPG figures is significantly different from when the last F-bod was tested for fuel mileage in '02.
I think that real-world numbers will compare more than favorably with the last 4th Gen cars once people have a chance to drive them and do their calculations.
I guess the guy who wrote the content for Ed's teleprompter decided 2009 was the ticket!

Best regardSS,

I concur with others this reveal was a big let down. gm marketing/ad dept sucks. who's bright idea was it to have such a half ass reveal.. Why not show the SS? or at least post some pics?

As we've seen the red RS is freakin' awesome. I was very disappointed it was so short and we didn't see any good pics of the interior.

And no SS.
I couldn't get on either. I believe it was Internet Explorer users that were having a problem. We'll discuss that later, though. I had to download firefox to get it to work.

BTW, FIREFOX KICKS ASS!!!!!!

Was suprised at the unveil. Very short. At least it's out and all the GM folks can talk about it now. Questions CAN be answered. SS is there....it just wasn't discussed as GM is trying to focus on the economic V6 that puts all other V6's to SHAME. C'mon. It'll be just about as fast as the V8 Mustang AND get better gas mileage. You guys really have no idea!!!

Can someone please explain to me what happened to the idea of the LSA based Z28? I saw something on left lane news about it being washed but then someone else said that was BS. So what's the deal? Have they successfully pissed on my parade and decided they are NOT going to do it?

LLN is just like Mt and a few other magazines. They print any rumors they hear and hope to get viewers which increases their revenue. Not everything they publish is true. That's why you see a lot of "WTF?!?!?!?" threads of people posting links to other sites. If you haven't heard it from a credible source at GM, take it with a grain of salt.

A Volkswagen key? Actually very BMW and high end. Thankfully NO pushbutton starter. Glad it is the old twist to start key.

Anybody locate heated seat switchgear? I would really like to see heated seats in a convertible.

In the specsheet in shows the hud lit on the windshield...see no controls for it (as in Corvette - i.e.: up down, page display and brightness controls)

I gotchya but in all fairness, nothing so far has said anything like "the Z/28 will be out later in the year....etc" I am noticing a distinct lack of mention for the Z/28 option.

I imagine a ton of pics will be coming out within hours from the media that was present with plenty of interior and engine bay shots.

But I do agree that the marketing dept....well how can I put this nicely...may need some serious help .

I really like the "VW" key.

Juat saw the interior pics from the reveal. The leather actually looks pretty nice. I was planning on cloth but wouldn't mind the heated seat option, and like I said the leather looks decent.

If you look at the high-res pics of the interior that were leaked out over the weekend....where the climate controls are, dead center in both of the circular pods is a button for the seat heaters.

That's only 3 minutes.
You can see the full thing right where you could have seen the Live video. They saved it.

The reveal wasn't stunning, but the later photos and the specs.
All I can say is... wow!

I'm definitely going to buy one, even if it means eating bread&butter while paying the car loan
