Re: The Power of 2016 Z6?

Depending on who you believe, the 2.0T is going to be the base engine in the 6th Gen. This is pretty high risk/high reward for Chevy, considering Ford didn't have the guts to make their Ecoboost 4...

Re: What is going to GM to to compete with Hellcat?

Hey I live here too....still haven't seen one. Maybe I need to get out more but the fact remains, a $70k Camaro is rather insane.

Re: What is going to GM to to compete with Hellcat?

I'm not bashing horsepower, I'm bashing the concept of "just throw more horsepower at it without regard to other dynamics". You've been around long enough to know that I was concerned about the 5th...

Re: What is going to GM to to compete with Hellcat?

It has all become a big ---- measuring contest anyway. Where and exactly how often does one use 700 HP on the street? Not to mention they'll probably be about as rare as seeing a new $70k Z28 in the...

Re: Rumor: Could 201 Camaro be Inspired By 1970

From everything I have heard, the next car will be largely an evolution of the current styling themes.


Really, if we went back to the 60's for the 5th Gen and then to the 70's for the 6th gen,...

Re: 2014 Mazda3

Almost looks like the clay model melted from the doors forward.

Re: C7 Corvettes in Various Colors

Ugh. I'm sorry, but...ugh....

The side profile isn't too bad. But then you turn the car either way to expose the front (meh) or the back (GROSS) and C7 completely loses me. But, since I won't...

Re: 2014 Chevy Malibu

The 2013 Malibu was a disaster of a redesign, period. While I do think it's noble that GM quickly recognized it and tried to fix some of it, I honestly don't think it's really even salvagable.

Re: GM putting cash on Volt's hood

Would seem like they'll lose even more money on them now.



I know this is how people want these cars to be perceived but buying a vehicle isn't like buying the latest iPhone. It's a bit...

GM putting cash on Volt's hood

This isn't a good sign. Even the ridiculously impractical Nissan Leaf has been outselling the Volt recently at just a few thousand less on the sticker. Has GM botched the marketing of this car? Is it...

Re: production next generation Chevy Colorado

Here we go with the nameplate game again. I've still never heard a good reason why S10 was dropped.

Re: Camaro Z/28

Yes, that is probably a possibility.



I agree with this as well, but again the concern is that a CTS-based V8 Camaro takes us right back up around 3800 pounds again, probably. Just as...

Re: Camaro Z/28

ATS is not that small. In fact, it's 10 inches longer than the 130R concept. I don't see ATS's smaller physical size being a big turnoff, especially since interior dimensions are still so similar to...

Re: Camaro Z/28

Perhaps. It will be interesting, but if it has to be one or the other I know which one I would prefer. The new CTS is several inches longer than the 5th Gen, and I was certainly hoping for an even...

Re: Camaro Z/28

Maybe I haven't kept up with it but I though at this point we weren't sure if it was going to be ATS Alpha or "Alpha+" (CTS) that was going to be the basis.

I really like the ATS as a basis -...

Re: How fast will the Z/28 be in 0-60? 1/4 mile?

First to turn one might be important if you're only running one lap. :p Ultimately, in any meaningful competition it's still going to come down to the grip of the car and the skill of the driver...

Re: Camaro Z/28

We don't know that it will be Z06 type money. We know it will cost more than ZL1, but the question is how much? Could be as little as a thousand dollars. In fact, the ZL1 convertible might still be...

Re: Live Unveiling of the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro

Well, ok, I should have said the 'spirit' of the Z/28 hits the sweet spot. Except that it's still undoubtedly too heavy for the hardcore guys' liking.

In terms of what Z/28 should be in their...

Re: Camaro Z/28

Here's where the Corvette ceiling comes into play again. LS7 is no doubt one of GM's premium motors, hand built, second only to the LS9. What does a Z06 base for these days, $77k?

You can't offer...

Re: Camaro Z/28

Yeah, you'd think if they're going through the trouble of removing speakers, they'd remove the head unit and design a small, simple module that will just play the basic chimes to go in its place.

Re: Live Unveiling of the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro

Well, at some point you have to balance cost and content vs. demand. I highly doubt Chevrolet decided to create a Z/28 like this without doing their due diligence. I am sure their research indicates...

Re: Live Unveiling of the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro

Because the mission was not to create a "Z/28 of all flavors for all people", that is why. Like you mentioned earlier, Chevy will gladly sell you the 1LE that you can hotcam up close to 500 HP, if...

Re: Live Unveiling of the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro

When you start making all the special bits "optional", you start watering down the Z/28 right away. What is a Z/28 with SS brakes, 1LE suspension and a premium sound system? It's basically an SS with...

Re: Live Unveiling of the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro

Of course it would be nice to afford one.....but there is just too much serious hardware in the car for it to be priced around 30k. Chevrolet won't sell many Z/28s at all, but that isn't the point....
