First year high end models are always worth more in the long run.
I wouldn't say faster. I would imagine the Z would murder you on a track.

Isn't it obvious?

LSA = A6 Transmission

Ah gotcha...but still though, lol. Either way, all the extra things not even concerning the engine, will be enough for me to want one.

How do you know it's just a Camaro with a supercharger? It's a test mule You have no clue what is under the skin.. geesh...

I think the group wanting a lighter weight 5th Gen of any variant is a bit more numerous than we seem. However we are realists too and know that this Zeta platform isn't going to yield much weight loss save for expensive exotic materials that will price the car right out of the segment. A Zeta Camaro is better than no Camaro. GM engineers realized a long time ago that this car wans't going to be light and since weight loss is expensive, more power from a supercharged engine already on the production shelf isn't. So we will likely get a Z28 packing more advertised power than a GT500 but will probalby spot the Dearborn rival by 150lb + on the scales. I can't see the Z28 losing any weight over the SS by adding the LSA, suspension and CTS-V brakes.

A more svelt Camaro will have to be top priority for the 6th Gen.

Really dig the quad exhaust and the front does seem a little bulkier than normal but that may be just an eye trick lol. Also why bother even covering it up really if you are going to tape a piece of paper that explains what exactly it is lol.
