More weight = slower car. Slower car = , slower to accelerate, slower to turn, slower stop, loses to Mustang and Challenger...

Slower doesn't win the race.

That's why we want it to be as light as possible.

I think the main differences people are seeing when comparing these two come from the fact that the picture isn't taken at the the exact center of the two. The V6 on the left is angled slightly closer to the camera and less front grill is visible. Yes, the roof is taller however since the car is a little closer and the front bumper is angled so you see less grill, it is giving the V6 more of a sideview. I don't understand why the photographer couldn't move him/herself in the right position to take this mirror shot when he/she had the chance.. The larger rims and the 1-inch lower roof does make the concept look more sporty in my opinion however if the same large rims are added to the V6, then it should look very similar. The shadows on the V6 hood aren't as defined which makes the car look different as well. If we could see the hood bump more clearly, it would make the V6 look better as well..

Now we need a similar picture with the V8 SS/RT in a same mirror pose (photographed perfectly center) with the concept. That would be something amazing to compare.

Looks nice even without the rs package. I would be very happy with an ss without the rs package.

I would think that the spread on the base G8 vs the GT is a bad yardstick too, its what, around 3k?

The SS Camaro is supposed to have both an oil and tranny cooler? All I need now is a power steering cooler even though I won't need it. I am still up in the air as to regarding whether or not I still want one of these bad boys. The things that have me sold are: oil cooler, tranny cooler, LS3, 6M, 422hp (hopefully way under rated), IRS, Halos, Brembos, and the hood which looks like there may be enough room to work on this engine - hopefully something along the lines of the older muscle cars and current Mustangs, "potential" HUD. Draw backs keeping me from actually getting one: Weight, weight, weight. Right now I sit at 60/40 in favor of getting one. Sorry if this is off topic.

Oh, how could I forget?! The price plays the most important role of them all. The weight comes in at a close second. Anyway, overall -

I'm still not the fan of the bottom part of the grill it just doesn't match the top grill the space lining in the bottom grill are too narrow and don't match the space lining in the top. I still don't understand how they don't see this. in the V6 it matches perfectly because the space lining is about the same. its my opinion but I think the V6 looks better and yes I agree with some guys here that the SS logo should have been in the middle of the grill. well I guess we don' t get everything to your liking

Not to mention more weight hurts fuel economy

OK all you experts--is there room on the side of the cowl to put "SUPERCHARGED" SIMILAR TO THE "302" ON MY 69 Z/28? I am planning on building the LS3 and putting a Magnusson supercharger --goal 700 hp...T

Well, considering weight is a major factor in most aspects of performance, it should DEFINITELY be a factor in a purchasing decision, at least to shoppers that prioritize performance (and I understand that there are a lot that don't). NOT to say that the new Camaro won't perform well

And I'm not sure why you quoted me in this reply, I was only helping to answer the question why weight is a big deal, I never said the weight of the new Camaro would stop me from buying it

i'm certain an aftermarket front bumper could make it look just like the concepts even with the lower marks under the bumper...but the car is downright gorgeous....i want to see a convertible version of this

and for some reason in these pics the opening of the bumper doesn't look as big as in other photos where it looked like it stood out awkwardly...seems improved or my eyes are playing tricks on me

It doesn't look bad to me and never did. However to me the V6 bumper is a more accurate representation of the concept and looks better in my opinion. I'm still getting the V8 and will not let something as trivial as the bumper not being perfect get me down..
