Yes its nice, Yes someday I might own one...Used..LOL, give it time to develop, not into first year blues..... Aftermarket is going to have a bunch of pent up demand, and then it will of course work around and aftermarket ECU etc will be developed its inevitable. Its going to be like a unicorn, but hey they come around and then the guys who have to have the latest will trade in their other toys....And that's a opportunity, as for me ….My Camaros never going anywhere... its my daily and accepts easily new engines....ETC.

Agreed. A pretty radical change to buy at the beginning of its developmental cycle. You might say that about the 2010 Camaro I guess but they had a little experience with a front engine - rear wheel drive performance car.

Technological marvel, unbeatable price, small block V8. I’ll never say never, but DCT only, no manual option, from the people who brought us the A8 (Corvette, Camaro, Yukon, GMC truck). No thanks for now, it’s a brand new platform with a trans that needs to prove itself. I’ll wait a few years until they debug the whole car.
Until then, my C7 M7 for the win for me.

I love it, and really kind of want one. The only gripe I really have is that silly, silly row of console buttons. Not sure why anyone looked at that and said "this isn't only intuitive, but looks awesome!"

Headroom looks a bit sketchy.. I did watch a clip of a guy claiming to be 6'2" and having plenty of headroom, but still.

I was pleasantly surprised by the looks of it. However, the lack of an M6 option as well as the sub-500 hp power rating was a bit of a letdown.
Does anyone know how much they're going to weigh? Maybe if they're light enough the 495 hp will still make them as fast or faster than the LT1 C7 base models.
Will be cool to eventually see them around on the roads as they do resemble much more expensive "super cars" at a bargain price.
The HP is better than I'd have thought, but I am curious as to how much of a leech the transmission is.

Also, a Z06 is pretty much guaranteed.

Well, it does have Tri-Y headers.

The more I see of this car the more I realize I want one. I love the looks of the car, especially like the rear end and side profile with the roof panel off.

If it's all the above, no wonder they're not going to make a Camaro 7th Gen.

Under $60k for that isn't too bad!

The way the exhaust is routed makes me think DIY Twin Turbo kits will be easy, too.
