Who says you won't get both?

You know we have NO details yet on the final car and what engines will be offered, etc.

I would bet my LIFE against the LS7 though, it will be replaced with something else by 2009. I think you'll see a supercharged 6.2L instead.

As for the scoop my guess is the V6 cars won't have it and the V8 cars will. Heck, maybe none of them will and it will scoop from the grille or the fender.

no scoop, bigger mirrors, modern corvette-like interior, smaller wheels.. that's about all i can think of for now

INTERIOR, INTERIOR, INTERIOR. It is horrible. But, from what I have read, that is going to be addressed.

Take some of the weight out of the nose, the car looks to big and bulky. Lose the "ram air" scoop and add an RS/SS hide-away grill. Or at least do something with that nasty egg-crate grill insert. Tone down the interior just a little. I like the retro look in there though.

Interior is fine, idk why people are complaining. GM cars are not really known for their amazing interior design, so I think what the Camaro has makes it unique and different. Hood scoop must stay, maybe even bigger. Take the hood scoop off the V6, but the V8 need it to distinguish themselves for the V6, also it looks more bad ass. The wheels can't be 21inch thats for sure. What I would change is make the car a little more round in the nose and not come to a point, but I doubt they will change that

I would also bet against the LS7.
I'd also bet against the LS2.

The interior is awesome, I absolutely love those seats.
The dash layout/shape is fine, but the instrument panel/gauges need changing, and I'm sure they will be realistic in the production car.

I would love to see the projector/halo style headlights and afterburner style tail lights make production!!

But honestly, other than the instrument panel, gauges, and the need of a real radio, nothing much needs changing.

I would like to see a retractable hard top like the ones on the G-6 and then I want to see what they do to the interior

They have to keep the scoop at least on the ss version it makes the camaro and maybe put 18' wheels on it no bigger than that and tone down the pointed nose a little.
