Am I seeing thing or is that spoiler an Impala leftover????? NASTY!!!!!

Has GM made any mention of having a bumblebee color option or accessory package yet?

the only thing I'm not feeling about the ground effects really is the fact that it is so low to ground. I live in NY city and if I were to hit a pothole and up my ride, I'd go insane.

The body kit doesnt do anything for me, a bit overdone. I would like to see that blade spoiler on the car, that looks pretty cool. Its funny though, the Camaro underneath its striped car cover will still look meaner than the Mustang or Challenger.
The performance mods dont do a whole lot for me either, just because I plan on voiding the warranty right away. Forged, low compression motor and KB anyone?

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.

For anyone at the Indy event who saw the car and took part in the accessories introduction, I have a couple questions

The 21 inch wheels:
Did Chevy state the width (are they staggered) and what size tires did they suggest go on them?
Can they be substituted for the factory wheels (I.e. just pay the difference so I do not have to sell the originals)
I personally like the wide look, does anyone have the wheel “widths” of all the factory options

For the Exhaust: Did anyone look under the SS to confirm is it has true dual, or a single cat back? This should answer the question if the one shown is for the V6 or not.

The ground effects:
Can someone photoshop the ground effects camaro pic so the ground effects are the same color as the body. ( I agree with many that they are too much, but will reserve final opinion till I see a version where they are the same color as the body)

There was mention of LS engine upgrade parts:
Was there any mention if parts for the L99, exhaust, perhaps a mild cam

The 12 inch subs:
DO the subs integrate into a fixed location in the trunk, or are they just a Box that slides around?
Were they powered? Does this imply that GM has integrated a low level input of aftermarket subs (that would be awesome)

Airbox/ shorty headers:
Which of the 3 engines will this be available for?

Molded real splashguards:
Anyone get a pic of what these will look like?
Are they intended to be painted the body color of the car (ala old Pontiac Trans Am style)

Will the real diffuser:
work with the cat back exhaust since it appear to incorporate different exhaust bezels?

I think that’s all of them, Thanks in advance

For all the people considering the blade spoiler, I believe it is a happy medium. The stock spoiler is ok, the wing is too big, but the blade spoiler looks pretty good. I will have to see it on a production Camaro.

Hello, first time poster! Great site. Love all the new photos and info coming out.
But seeing that optional wing spoiler made me cringe. I see the other blade spoiler, and hope it ends up being close to the original. I didn't see any good photos of it yet...maybe I missed it. GM we need this! I had to go out to the garage and snap a photo to feel better.

That photo of the blade spoiler was incredibly intangible, but you might just get what you want... and what I want! However, it's never going to look the same since the new Camaro's rear end is curved whereas the original's is just straight across. The spoiler will still arch a bit.

The blade spoiler does look kind of like just what everyone wanted: a larger version of the ducktail - in other words, more like the original 69's. I need to see better pictures of it, but that blade spoiler, MAYBE the gas cap, and the hockey stripes (especially now that they've added a pinstripe outlining the hockey stick if you look close enough) are the only things I'd buy from this selection. Everything else, especially that body kit and wing spoiler, is horrendous and doesn't belong on Camaros.

Thankyou very much.
Still not sure if the full ground effects package is for me or not, but when shown in body color, its more appealing. Wonder what the front air dam would look like by itself. BTW, your pics the blue camaro with no rear wing, and non painted wheels looks the best to me.

Is anyone willing to photoshop that blue car into silver ice w/ hockey stripe and, if you're good, perhaps mocking up a blade spoiler. It looks like it sticks up about 2-3 inches or so from the decklid at a 50 degreen angle. Thanks in advance.

It's not just for the V6, and even if it was that is not a good excuse to make it ricey. Like pink said, just a dumbass comment.

Yeah...until you put that freaking kit on it. And 300hp with 3700lbs is nothing to brag about. The Cobalt SS, Mazdaspeed 3, and Caliber SRT-4 will all eat the Camaro V6 alive and all 3 are probably going to be cheaper...and those are 4 bangers, fwd at that, and all with less hp.

I have two blown v-8's. I've driven quite a few normally aspirated cars with similiar power to weight ratios as the Camaro. Take my word for it. This Camaro WILL NEED ONE.
