Now this is the picture I was curious about

If you guys see the left wall with all the different makes and models. Its quite interesting you can make out an Infiniti with its engine specs definitely a cadillac, and a Honda accord V6 and some other cars.

Now thats pretty cool that Chevy is keeping an eye on all these different cars and keeping the camaro competitive in segment and beating the pricing of all these other car makes and models.

Im really stoked about this sexy beast, here in Dubai I see tons of Lumina SS's and the new HSV holden sedan its sold under the chevy badge here .


They are kick ass machines and if they are any indicators of performance than the Camaro is gonna hand it to most cars on the road that cost a lot more than it.

That's because in other parts of the world, a couple of the Lexi (plural of Lexus?) are sold as Toyotas.

What we know as the Lexus IS is sold as a Toyota Altezza elsewhere. I believe they do it for the Lexus GS series as well, but I don't know the alternate name.

If you look back at the pics of development when the concept was released there were similar posters on the wall. I'll see if I can dig them up.

I knew that Toyota/Lexus are one and the same but I did not know that they sold Lexuseseseses as Toyotas in other parts of the world.

Hmm, so...do those cars sell at Toyota prices or Lexus prices?

I don't know how in the world ya'll are able to read all that off the wall. Also, I don't know if those are posted up there just for comparison on the Camaro alone. I don't think so. Look on that sheet and you'll see what looks like an SUV...possibly a Buick. On top of that, there's an SUV right behind the Camaro.

Funny how all the camo is coming off these cars and pictures like 5 months old are finally showing up on the web. Imagine how many pictures are floating out there on cell phones or have been downloaded onto computers just waiting to be seen by the masses.

I actually think the SUV (one of them anyways) is either a Yukon or an Envoy.

It's too tall+narrow to be a Yukon, looks a lot like an Envoy to me.

He who doesn't know his competition gets beat.

That's why I post new Mustang info.

I want to know what's next to me on the streets.

It looks more like black tape down the centers of the 'spokes' more than anything else to me...
