Cubanaso, couldn't agree more. Your criteria is also exactly what I'm looking for. The Camaro delivers in spades so far, but its nice to know we have options in case something goes wrong. And since the Genesis coupe so closely competes with the Camaro it forces GM to keep it competitive in terms of pricing and performance. Even if you don't want to buy a Genesis, it is still a very good thing for Camaro fans.

Exactly, my aim is the Camaro but I have to make a list of fall two cars just in case. If I can't get the Camaro, and GM does not change their mind with the G8 auto (unlikely), then I'm getting the Genesis Coupe or a used BMW 328i.

That's the plan at least, sad as it is waiting for this car for so long but not being able to get it is to me, I have to think of my son and future baby.

The Genesis Coupe and BMW 328i are leading the pack right now, but what I WANT is the CAMARO V8!!!!!

I saw two of these driving down the road the other day.
Pretty nice, I have to say. I can't stand the back end of it though. It reminds me of a solara.
I do see some potential competition though. (Not for me, 5th gen is a definite)

I have more pictures, if anyone's interested.

^YES YES, post more or let me know and if you can email it to me.

Personally, I like the look of the car and the butt considering most car companies don't know what to do at the back of the car now a days it seems.

Heck, the 350Z's butt is just plan UGLY and really mess up an overall good looking car.

The weakest point as stated, to me, is the front end is to grand touring and not aggressive enough for me. BUT...like I said, I'd go aftermarket to change that ASAP.

BUT...please please, add more pics!

Found this thread, interesting info...

http://www.gencoupe.com/general-disc...sis-coupe.html

WHILE, the RX8 (I can attest as an owner) 0-60 is WAY off, Edmunds needs to learn how to drive the RX8...making it look bad. The actual time is more like 5.9-6.3 for the 0-60 and a quater mile of 14.49-14.7.

Anyways, looks like Hyundai really cares about making this all the sports car it can be.

Note: LOL, on the website they are complaining about the weight and calling it too fat...lol, I wonder what they'd think about the Camaro?
