That exhaust infuriates me. My GTO came stock with 2 pipes going into a resonator, then two pipes coming out of the resonator into two mufflers into two exits. Why would they offer that one piece straight back from the cats into one muffler deal? The old ones had that. I would've thought they would've improved that design.

I really hope that was just a stock photo.

It's been mentioned too many times that the Camaro would have true dual exhaust.
Ah. That makes me feel better. Thanks for that.

That's really disappointing. The ground effects was the major accessory I was planning on getting....that's just too boy racer/ricey for me. Oh well, if that is the only thing I can complain about...no biggie. I'm sure there will be lots of after market gfx.

I wonder how they're gonna fit that big sub through that tiny trunk opening lol.

Are these going to be available as factory options? If so I see them doing a heck of a lot more special orders to get what you want, no dealer could cover all that.

I have personallly always liked the ground effects and have been hoping for them since the first spy shots 6 months back. I even like the highrise spoiler/wing on the back. The idea that it is to ricer is upsetting to me. This is no Honda Civic! I can see how having this would benefit the performace of this car. Downforce anyone? The rear diffuser is sick and makes the view the imports see even more menacing. We have beat them at there own game and hopefully brought some of our misguided youth back to the Generals Army. Of corse it's just my opinion and I could be wrong.........

I was hoping there would be some LED taillights (like Cadillac)... I think they would compliment the HIDs up front... Maybe the aftermarket will come up with something....

My question is...


Are the stripe and hockey stick painted but the rally stripes vinyl, or is every graphic on the car going to be vinyl?

What is the third color of the hood and hockey stripe? Thught only white and cyber gray were offered.

Also, which spoiler is coming with the RS spoiler or the SS/RS?

And finally Why does the catback exhaust show a single exhaust instead of true duals? Please tell me that's for the v6.



ANSWERS!!!!!! It's bad enough that I couldn't go, but now to be left with all the questions?!?!?! You guys are as bad as Scott.

There isn't enough force on the rear of the car for downforce to be a factor until (I would guess) over 100mph. Also, downforce works by creating drag. That is pretty much the last thing I want at the track.

I don't doubt the concept of being ricer upsets you...weren't you posting about putting lambo doors on your new Camaro? I'm not saying you shouldn't do it, it's your car and this is America. But in my opinion, yes, that is rice.

WOW just WOW. First I want to thank the people who were able to attend Indy and are taking pictures and sending the folks at home play by play updates. I have a few questions though. all the performance parts mentioned, particularly the headers, are those for both V6 and V8? and what are the colors for the stripes and engine covers?

On the GMC Acadia the HUD is a $340 option, I would assume it would cost the same on the Camaro. Big bummer that people have to wait over a year to get the HUD option though, really lame.

BTW, no news on the Supercharger huh?
