Automobile Mag Future Camaro Excerpt

Not sure what the guys at Automobile Magazine really know, but it's at least an encouraging statement on the future of the Camaro, if not just reaffirming what we already know..........

Camaro Z28
The good news for chevrolet is that, for the first time since REO Speedwagon topped the Billboard charts with "Can't Fight This Feeling," more people are buying Camaros than Mustangs. The bad news is that the Blue Oval boys have responded in a big way and now have a faster, more efficient pony car. Chevy will return fire with a Shelby-fighting Z28, now back on track for a late-2011 arrival with supercharged V-8 motivation. Burning the rear tires should be easy with the 556-hp, 6.2-liter V-8 from the Cadillac CTS-V, but the Z28 should be marginally quicker due to a lower curb weight. Additionally, look for continual improvements each model year rather than the typical mid-cycle face-lift. The 2011 model year introduces the convertible, and the V-6 will get an 8-hp bump (to 312 hp). Engineers are also fine-tuning the handling to address complaints that the car doesn't turn in quickly enough. Further out, expect the Camaro to get more efficient, likely by offering turbocharged four- or six-cylinder engines. The next-generation car will also get lighter by switching from the Zeta architecture to the smaller Alpha platform.

the part about the handling fine-tuning is the most exciting part, since the handling was the only thing I didn't really like about the Camaro.
