More head room. Around 3400 lbs hopefully a lil shy of 480 hp. Maybe t tops I like t tops. Make a 700 hp zl1 . Maybe even the 7 speed manual off t he new C7. Bucket seets in the back as well as the front. I loved those on my gto. Bring back the ram air on the ss. Functional vents like the C7 .

1. LS9 Engine from ZR1 Vette (at least)
2. Lose 300 pounds of weight
3. More color options

That will do

Memory - Seats and Mirrors
Climate Control
A body style that doesn't make the rear quarter panels and doors look like they are two different colors
A boot cover for the top that isn't cheap looking. Something more like the Corvette conv that flips up and the top goes under it.
Air bags in front to pick it up when going in and out drive ways like Lambo's have

For starters, I'd like to see a Z/28 RPO with a next gen 427 CID N/A DI engine with cold air induction, close ratio 7 speed MT, 4 wheel brake ducting, 6 pot Brembo's, Pedders suspension, and body styling that of what the Corvette team brought to the table.

Chevy should do exactly what Ford is doing IMO. The Benchmark for the 6th Generation Mustang GT is, allegedly to exceed, the Current BOSS 302. The next Generation Camaro SS/Z28 (Whichever it is, really the Z28 should be the track oriented model) should match or exceed the current 1LE Package. No more of that handling like a boat BS like the 2010+ Camaro without the 1LE Package...

I think Chevy should treat the Camaro more like the Corvette (Make Higher Trim option parts like PTM and Magnetic Ride Control Available on all model's or at the very least use Bilsteins on the SS/V6 to give an option between Firm and Soft Suspension on the Lower Trims.

Also get rid of the Automatic on the ZL1 and NA Track Models (Use either a Stick Shift or a Dual Clutch Transmission, However I doubt we will get that before the Corvette..., If that's not possible please match the feeling of the 370Z Automatic... It really knows how to kick you back in your seat on shifts)

The ride of the 1LE and Boss can be somewhat harsh for the non-track daily-drivers out there buying GTs and SSs, though...I think it's a good thing to make such superior suspension calibrations optional.

Add to the 6th Generation Camaro

I would prefer my 6th Generation Camaro to have a Short Shifter come standard for the 6-speed Manual editions. Chevy may also want to consider a Targa top!

Well the nice thing about the Boss 302 over the 1LE IMO is that you can adjust the suspension to soften it up (I can't for the help of me though remember if that is only on the Laguna Seca or across the Boss Line up). However a track oriented car will always be a lot stiffer than than say the GT or SS without 1LE. However the weigh loss should seriously benefit both cars in the handling department. They won't need as stiff of suspension with the weight loss! Again why I said make Bilstein Adjustable's available for the lower trims or allow MSRC as an option (at least on the higher trims)

I understand what you're saying.

I guess what I was getting at was that I think it was wise of both Ford and Chevy to build the GT and SS with slightly more compliant suspensions for the sake of ride-quality for the masses. For that minority of us that would appreciate and use a stiffer, more sporty suspension could opt for the more expensive equipment. But this time, offer those packages from the get-go, instead of three years later.

Even the bilstein adjustable shocks can be pricey for a 'base' model of these cars. And as I understand it, they have two modes; stiff and stiffer.

I can speak from my experience with driving an M3 (with Bilsteins) as well as my GT500 it's actually quite a difference between the two suspension modes. It's undoubtedly stiffer than say MSRC but not to the degree that some people say (of course I have a different idea of what is stiff compared to the average person, my Camaro for example is looser than Pam Anderson IMO)



I agree that it would probably be too much of a cost to be standard unfortunately...

And yes I just started a GIF war with you!!!
