I concur. While I understand that the car is 97% perfect, I feel it's important to not rest on your laurels and continue to improve the car. I also have made a few recomendations of what I would like to see done to the next gen Camaro.

How about buttons that are custom cast from a mold of my fingertips. It's all about feel. GM should be able to do this while adding no extra cost.

GM could offer custom car washes by CEO Dan Akerson using only his tounge, clay bar and a squirt bottle of detailer. Those extra little touches are important to me.

I'd like a cooled steering wheel. C'mon, childrens toys have this and no one should have to grab a hot steering wheel in this age of modern technology.

I would also assert that if GM expects me to spend 30K on a performance vehicle they should grant me a waiver, allowing me to exceed the speed limit whenever I feel the need to do so.... tell you what, either that or personal "hot lanes" just for Camaro owners. GM had their biggest profit year ever recently, there's no reason they can't do this, esp. since tax payer assistance kept them from going into bankruptcy.

It's great that 2014 brings a color DIC screen but I'd like to see a color Hi-Def, LED DIC & Head Up screen with user adjustable day-night-eclipse mode, (both lunar and solar).

Give the convertible owners a sunroof option. It's 2013, why isn't this even an option?

A W12 Engine option ala Bugatti.

AWD, standard.

Better incentives and APR's. There is no real reason for not putting 5K on the hood, GM is just being cheap. Also, 0% is available on Hondas, so there's no reason Chevy can't offer that, regardless of your credit.

Lastly, the Camaro is just too expensive. GM should be able to do all of this for under 16K OTD. How are 17 year old kids w/ no credit and no driving experience going to be able to afford the car otherwise? Let's get this done!

Club Racing should be a major focus for the car. I mean road course racing. The 1LE should be further expanded and called "Club Racing" with is own badging, etc. This is a nice product niche for the car and fits the performance targets.

200-300lbs weight reduction can also be attained by eatting healthy and a gym routine. Look in the mirror first, especially for those ppl whom want their car to lose weight start with yourself first.

...without delving too far into responses....250-300 pounds in weight reduction is alot as far as times go around any competitive course. On the drag strip thats equates to .250 to .300 seconds in elapsed time.

I think they're talking about the voice command functions part of MyLink.
Sounds like the mic is picking up road & wind noise.

Call me crazy I would like it to be the weight of my 67 RS/SS with the same rear seat room. A 350HP turbo V6 that gets 30MPG would be great as long as they made a strong bottom end that could be modded up to maybe 500 without changing out the bottom end.

Just a tip to know. If you put the rear wheel with tire on a scale and it reads over 70Lbs you're doing it wrong!

I'm happy with the cars we have but they might wanna invest in better exterior paint quality and less plastic inside.

Less weight
More power.
Or at least an 8-Track player!

ALL OF THE ABOVE ARE GREAT IDEAS, THE hURST SHORT THROW SHIFTER IS AWESOME AND SHOULD BE STANDARD EQUIPMENT. CAR HANDLES BAD ON CURVES, SUSPENSION NEEDS TO BE BEEFED UP AND A LOWER CENTER OF GRAVITY SO YOU ARE NOT THROWN TO ONE SIDE WHILE EXITING THE FREEWAY AT ANYTHING OVER 30MPH. GAUGES LEAVE A LOT TO BE DESIRED, NAVAGATION SYSTEM IS POORLY DESIGNED AND TAKES A ROCKET SCIENTIST TO OPERATE. ENGINE COMPARTMENT LOOKS LIKE A TINKER TOY OR MADE FROM LEGOS, REALLY CHEAP, CHINSY LOOKING. A MUSCLE CAR THAT HAS AN ENGINE THAT LOOKS LIKE A TWINKIE.

If GM ever made the perfect Camaro or truck we would stop buying the next year models ....GM knows this. I like the 2014 Camaro or Silverado more, so i will trade up...cha-ching

7 speed manual? Why do we want to shift more I find 6th gear useless most of the time now. Not necessary IMO

This is just pure crazy talk, except this one. OMG, we NEED this

I would trade my 2010 for this. If not this, I'm keeping my 2010, it's perfect the way I have made it.
