    Does anybody have the new Camaro yet?!? How awesome is it? I'm just curious about it, I want one really bad!

    i was looking into it but i don't like the fact that it runs the 1/4 slower than my cobalt.

    I am sure you have mods on your CobaltSS. I am not trying to be mean, I am just saying A stock Camaro SS is faster than a stock Cobalt SS. Further testing has a manual Camaro SS going 12.94@112 I forgot which magazine it was in. To be honest I want one too but I would wait another year. They have some bugs to work out and the mark up is rediculous. I love the new Camaro but for the price some dealers are asking, you could own a Corvette.

    i definatly have mods but a stock cobalt ss runs 13.5 in the 1/4 and i seen the camaro do 13.9. if somebody hit 12.9 thats good but i havent seen it. if u remember what magazine u saw that in let me know.

    All the tests I have read, have it at 13.00 @ 110, I think Chevy High Performance got it in the 12's. The V6 Camaro is mid 14's.

    Seems like the dealers are trying to make all of the profit they lost back on one car!!

    They make them here in Oshawa and there all over the place here LOL
    but I've heard there on backorder (So it would be slow getting one)
    They have shifts running steady until August...

    Those are numbers from crappy car editors, put it in someones hands at it WILL do better, I always say whatever the car mags do, a skilled driver can knock off a tenth easy with just better shifting, not to mention getting the correct RPMs at launch instead of burning the tires out, not to mention this is a 4000lbs car!!!

    i have to agree with you vncj96, that cobalt is way lighter than the camaro which definately gives it an edge, but if you are upset b/c of its stock 1/4 mile times, them you are an ideot b/c it doesnt take much to go faster and get there quicker. besides, its a camaro

    To me 1/4 mile speed doesn't matter too much. I just love the way the new camaro looks, especially a black one. Have you seen the black concept? AKA the evil camaro. I do agree that there are faster, more agile, better looking cars out there but this one DEFINETELY has my attention.

    Yep, Love the way they look. Wish i had the cash to buy one.

    Haven't seen any on the streets yet around me. I'm waiting for one of the doctors at work to come rolling in, in one

    I saw one today on the road for the first time and they're pretty nice! They beat the new challenger anyways!

    I tell you what.........Camaro isnt just speed, muscle, power and handling. Its Image!!!!!! They were never the Chevy top dog for any of those traits, in fact the Camaro was something that most of us couldnt afford in the Corvette and for the rest it was that we hated the Mustang!! I had an 84 Camaro, while it was no speed demon, BELIEVE me as a sopmore in high school it was the ultimate coolness, not being the geek that had moms convertible, but the jock rolling with the cheerleader with the T-Tops off and the exhaust ROARING...........thats what Camaro was about, but holy HELL!!!!!!!!!!, this new one, is NOT just that I cant afford a Corvette< but something to be JUST as coo if not more rare in this day & agel!!!!!

    I have actually seen hand full of them due to my job. Im a manager at Gas Station and the local Chevy Dealer has an account with us.

    I have seen both the SS and RS and I have to same me like very much.

    To bad I dont have any cash or else I would go down to my chevy dealer and pick one of these badboys up.

    Iv'e seen a couple around here and they are awesome. I'm just waiting to see one out at the flat track one of these weeks. I'd love to see one take down some of these mustangs there. There isn't a single mustang there that impresses me aside of one old 87 that has been completely rebuilt for the track. Either way the new camaros are slick and have sure brought back the camaro title with a bang.

    Challenger versus the Camaro?? I would take the Challenger in a second over the Camaro, and this is coming from a Chevy girl. My uncle bought a 2008 Challenger SRT8 w/6.1 supercharged Hemi with the pistol grip shifter, and I have to admit that it is a beast it would rip the Camaro night and day. He got the tangelo orange with the carbon fiber shaker hood, granted I think he paid $50,000 for it but DAMN!!!!! :happy:
