II think it would be a cool move..... get off the line quicker but burnouts would be hard on it ........ it would be a cool option

I highly doubt GM will do a AWD Camaro..since Camaro is meant to be performance. If there isn't an AWD Corvette..I doubt there will be a AWD Camaro.

I like the idea of 1.5 60ft times on some Nitto 555s with a Ls3 powered car. I could care less about if it was "right" or not.

-good all-weather performance
-lower sixty foot times
-lower quarter mile times when power is above stock levels (in the lieu of a aftermarket S/C or turbo, perhaps)
-a comfortable single digit ET car
-lower insurance, due to AWD considered a safety feature with some companies

I could go on all day how I like the idea, but like mentioned...... it wont happen.
Maybe with a GXP G8.... but prolly not.

How would I react?
It isn't something I'd look for personally so there wouldn't be much impact for me

Quite a few cars have AWD available so there must be something to it for enough buyers out there.

I'd hit it! 1.8 60's on the street in street tires! It would shove that 435 hp up some Evo's arse. Plus it would take away some of the talking heads talking points on some import boards about how their AWD pwns ju ALL !!!11!!!!.

It'd be too heavy and too expensive.

Not gonna happen.
