Almost anyone looking into this car segment is going to want one from the beginning and this may cause waiting lists that may spill over in interest for several years. I don't see sales volumes dipping significantly till after 3 years, baring fuel prices changing drastically. Just introduce the model with the most current appeal. Don't use 10 year old technology 2 years from now and try to pass it off as innovation. There's no reason all these future features I.E. heads up, convertible would be available from the beginning. It seams to me the Volt was put on the fast track given the technological challenge witch should have added extra development time and the camaro wasn't. Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining just frustrated to wait almost 4 years and maybe 5 or more for those of us that want a vert. Remember word of the concept started hitting the web around Oct of 2005. and that's after 4 to 6 months of development.
Completely agree.

I assumed that was for the V6 (if not the lowest V6- LS).

It's been mentioned too many times that the Camaro would have true dual exhaust.

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.

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.
