The base price of the SS is going to under $30k, not even mentioning $40k, and if you're off by a factor of 33% you don't know a lot about cars.

I would think that the spread on the base G8 vs the GT is a bad yardstick too, its what, around 3k?

The SS Camaro is supposed to have both an oil and tranny cooler? All I need now is a power steering cooler even though I won't need it. I am still up in the air as to regarding whether or not I still want one of these bad boys. The things that have me sold are: oil cooler, tranny cooler, LS3, 6M, 422hp (hopefully way under rated), IRS, Halos, Brembos, and the hood which looks like there may be enough room to work on this engine - hopefully something along the lines of the older muscle cars and current Mustangs, "potential" HUD. Draw backs keeping me from actually getting one: Weight, weight, weight. Right now I sit at 60/40 in favor of getting one. Sorry if this is off topic.

Oh, how could I forget?! The price plays the most important role of them all. The weight comes in at a close second. Anyway, overall -

I'm still not the fan of the bottom part of the grill it just doesn't match the top grill the space lining in the bottom grill are too narrow and don't match the space lining in the top. I still don't understand how they don't see this. in the V6 it matches perfectly because the space lining is about the same. its my opinion but I think the V6 looks better and yes I agree with some guys here that the SS logo should have been in the middle of the grill. well I guess we don' t get everything to your liking

Find the people who thought this front-end looked bad, and show them this. Just goes to show you, don't comment on what you haven't seen

Slower doesn't win the race.

That's why we want it to be as light as possible.
Not to mention more weight hurts fuel economy

Here's one of them. I still think it is inferior to the concept. Chubby cheeks

OK all you experts--is there room on the side of the cowl to put "SUPERCHARGED" SIMILAR TO THE "302" ON MY 69 Z/28? I am planning on building the LS3 and putting a Magnusson supercharger --goal 700 hp...T

Well, considering weight is a major factor in most aspects of performance, it should DEFINITELY be a factor in a purchasing decision, at least to shoppers that prioritize performance (and I understand that there are a lot that don't). NOT to say that the new Camaro won't perform well

And I'm not sure why you quoted me in this reply, I was only helping to answer the question why weight is a big deal, I never said the weight of the new Camaro would stop me from buying it
