Negative on T-tops unless GM wants to spend a fortune getting that roof to pass safety tests.

I agree with this.
Of course the SS model should get the LT1 with 7 speed manual or 8 speed auto. Auto should get the same engine as the manual, not a truck engine like the 2010-2015 cars. Buyers should also be able to pick from a variety of gear ratios even if they force a GG tax. Same type of thing should have been done on the 5th gen. Buyers should have had the option to get the LS3 with a auto transmission and pay a GG tax as well as 3.70 to 3.91 gear ratios for both transmission types. AFM can be turned off by the driver with the new LT1 so no need to have a non AFM car though.

like others have said...less weight! Love to see it closer to Gen3 weight, but not likely to happen.

Specifically for the 50th, I want to see something nasty as shit or NAS if you will. Not just some fruity vinyl decals like that but a 50th NAS Camaro big block or something ridiculous.

- better designed/tested convertible top
- lighter wheels/rotor option
- Michelin Pilot Super sport stock wheel sizes
- suspension upgrade on base models (option)
GM doesn't do this to base models because that is what makes them affordable. You have to pay to play and that is why the Z28 ZL1 etc make them more money. Not for the fact that they sell a lot of these cars but that they get press time which promotes the camaro in general. The base models sell because they are cheaper versions of the beast.

Just PLEASE do not put any 4 cylinder engines in the car! I don't know if it is confirmed yet or not, but I heard rumors about turbo 4's in the new Mustangs.

Agreed. Will ruin the rep of being a muscle car imo.

As long as they'll offer a version with a high horsepower V8, things should be all right.

Yeah, I don't care if it has a 4 banger option, as long as I get a V8 option

I guess I somewhat agree but man it hurts to see these cars as rentals...

Also the LT1 engine is 100% confirmed?

I am going to be waiting for the 2017 50th ZL1.

Do not change.

The solid billet feeling of the chassis for a bunch of weight savings.
The uniqueness of an interior just to be like everybody else.
The body style just for the sake of revolution. They say retro is done....who are they? The 60s and early 70s and 5th gen are some of the sexiest cars around, I am sure it will be great!
Packages and options are a great thing, but make the base model as great as you can without sacrificing a low price point. Camaro has always been the affordable sports coupe.
I love the look of the short windows and low roof line. If you can make the Camaro better to see out of and it still looks great then fantastic, but it hasn't slowed down sales...
The interchangeability of parts just for the sake of exclusiveness, I like to keep things GM as much as possible.

Things to change.

RS front end should be different not just halos.
T-tops or a targa top are probably not an option but one can dream.
1LE option available across the board, this is one of the best priced packages out there, why be stingy.
Make all GM parts affordable as much as possible.
Engine covers are great for personalizing but the engine bay could use a little love.
7-speed manual across the board....
If there is going o be a 4cyl do not move the V6 up market, just give it more POWWERR.

They already are rentals. Pretty much every other Camaro here in Orlando has an Enterprise sticker in the window.

We all know that GM will have a best of a motor in there s othat's already checked off. (Talking about the V8)

I'm expecting the weight of the SS to come in at 3,700-3,800 pounds. I'm leaning more on the lower side of that based on going over the weights of the platform ATS is on.

I just don't see the Camaro using the CTS platform as others are suggesting. CTS sedan model for model weighs about 300 pounds more than the ATS sedan. That would translate into a one fat Camaro. GM isn't that stupi.. I hope.

I want to see the car now!! Excited.

Targa top would be the most badass thing chevy could release. I am going for the 50th ZL1 and a targa top option would be freaking awesome.

I autocross and I prefer ponycars so I definitely would like the car to lose some weight. The ATS coupe is a good sign to me because they are in the 3500+ lbs range for the V6. My hope is the 6G Camaro with manual Recaro seats and the LT1 will be under 3700lbs. That will make it lighter than the 2015 Mustang GT. Under 3600lbs with the V8 and you can bet your bippy I'll be buying one to replace my 2012 5.0. I have a 1995 Z28 that is retired from competition, BTW, so I'm no Ford fanboy. I like 'em both, but I'll buy whichever one is faster.

What else? 1LE option is great, but please make it available at launch, and make sure it keeps the wide wheels. The more tire I can put under a car the happier I am. A 2nd gear that can go 65-70mph at fuel cut is also really useful to me (pretty much like they have now).

The stock SS exhaust needs to be way better. The current exhaust (non NPP) is just not good. The unfortunate part is we have to deal with the AFM and the baffles to cover up the drone from that system.
