1.The RS will be available on both the LT (V6) and SS (V8) models. The RS is strictly an exterior trim package.

2.HUD will not be available at the start of production

3. Pricing will be announced later this year

4. There will be no push button start

5. "regarding bumblebee...stay tuned"

6. SS badging will appear on the front grille and rear deck, as well as in the interior. One unique note, if you get the RS package with the SS, the SS badges on the exterior will change from Silver to Red.

7. There are two different front facias for the LS/LT and SS model. The SS model with have an slit above the grille and a little bit different lower grille.

8. The slit on the SS is nonfunctional and is for appearance only

9. The convertible will be a soft top

10. "We think the Camaro will more than hold its own when a Mustang pulls up next to it."-John Fitzpatrick

11. Halo lighting is only available with the RS package

12. The Camaro will feature the optional OnStar Direction and Connection Package that will feature the most advanced navigational system available.

13. "We'll continue to review consumer demand for future colors. Stripes will be available from both the factory and GM Accessories. More details later date."

14. The light ring around the gauges is standard on all vehicles. In addition, there will be ambient light across the instrument panel that flows into the doors that matches the rings around the gauges. "We do have two colors - ice blue and red - however, you can not dial a different color like the Mustang."

15. "We have 18, 19 and 20 inch wheels in the Camaro wheels and they all have individual appearances. We have 20 inch wheels for the SS and V6 and V8 RS packs."

16. "The backseat design is more expressive than the Mustang (bolsters), and it's got more knee and head room than the Mustang. It's a better package."

17. The customer will be able to choose what color. We will offer all black, gray, gray option, tan option and the accent pack color which is a red-orange. The color will be on the A surface of the seat and the IP and door insert.

18. The RS headlights are a specific design with an HID function and halo light ring. The tail lamps have the same appearance with a slightly darker internal finish, but essentially, they have the same exterior design.

19. Four passenger vehicle

20. The Chevrolet bowtie emblem will only be available in gold. (no blue or red options)

21. There will be an option for a power sunroof available on both models.

22. The car is essentially steel, although for lighter efficiency, the hood is alloy. Throughout the car, particularly in the suspension, there are lighter materials.

23. (the afterburners effects we're talking about on the concept car). The LED detail on the concept car which we reproduced on the lens material on the production vehicle. They sparkle in the same way.

24. The tap shifting is set up to enable the driver to make the shift. It won't upshift for you. It sits on the red line so the driver is in control for upshifting. When you slow down, it will downshift for you, so if you're at a traffic light, it will downshift and you'll have to upshift. This gives the driver the ultimate performance control.

25. There will not be a flapper valve in the exhaust system like the Corvette. However, we have spent a tremendous amount of time to ensure the exhaust note on the V6 and V8 is outstanding. The exhaust tips will be routed “through the fascia” with a 96mm diameter on the V8 and a 75mm for the V6.

26. The cars top speed will be electronically limited. Top speed numbers will be announced at a later date.

27. 18 inch tires are all season AL-2 245/55R18. These are BF Goodrich. Stopping distance from 60 to 0 mph is an impressive 132 feet.

19 inch tires are all season AL-3 245/50R19. These are Perelli. Stopping distance from 60 to 0 mph is an impressive 125 feet.

20 inch tires are summer HW-4 245/45R20 front and 275/40R20 rear. Stopping distance from 60 to 0 mph is an impressive 117 feet.

28. Perelli is the supplier for the 20s

29. Performance numbers will be released as we get closer to production, but we're very happy with the test results.

30. For the V6, we have GM's 6L50 six-speed transmission and for the V8, we have the 6L80 six-speed trans.

31. The V6 is equipped with our FE2 suspension setting that provides opportunities for 18-inch 19-inch and 20-inch tires. On the RS package, we enable the customer to get the 245 front and 275 rear 20-inch tires coupled with the HID headlights and rear spoiler. This provides the ultimate exterior appearance on the V6.

32. StabiliTrak stability control system and traction control are standard on all models. Competitive/sport modes for the stability system are offered on the V8 SS models, including launch control on SS models equipped with the six-speed manual transmission.

33. You can go into the Driver Information Center (DIC) to activate the competitive sport mode and launch control as well as deactivate all to do some cool burnouts.

34. The V6 and V8 automatics have paddle-shifters on the back side of the steering wheel to allow the customer complete control of their shift points.

35. The V6 has dual exhausts with quad catalytic converters and 75 mm "through fascia" exhaust tips.

36. The AFM is done elecronically as we move from 8 cylinder to 4 cylinder mode or 4 cylinder to 8 cylinder mode. The manual transmission is mechanically in specific gears and does not allow us to electronically change from 4 cylinder to 8 cylinder mode.

37. Both the cloth and the leather seats have strong accent stitching. Our goal was to capture some of the detail of the heritage cars but do it in a contemporary fashion

This was the response to a cloth/leather question... it was the only one i believe...

i added that to the list.
Okay, but nothing on a force order? That's my only real concern here.

No, no word on a force order.. but i haven't seen anything about leather seats being a part of the RS or the SS models... so i wouldn't think so...
Okay, I'll just keep my fingers crossed until I hear otherwise... and then, I'll just get it reupholstered in cloth if need be...

Why do I get a feeling I will be paying more than 35k before taxes and dealer fees for the SS/RS package.

From what I am hearing it sounds as though the base V8 SS will be the competitive 29-30k but sounds as those it will be missing some intriguing options that are offered on SS/RS.....I guess we will just have to wait.....some more

My feelings exactly ^^^ I hope to pay around 30K but really want the spoiler and halo ring. I wont pay 35 just to get the spoiler and ring though.
Yea I can sacrifice the sound system, sunroof, and some of the small toys that might come with the RS...

but I was really looking forward to halo, afterburners and that low profile spoiler. I just dont think I can see myself pushing 35k....

my feelings exactly. I am getting the feeling if you got a fully loaded RS/SS, you going to spend close to 40 grand. i was only hoping to go over 40 for the s/c 6.2 version

You cannot get the chevy logo( T/cross/bowtie/whatever)in any color except gold. The trademark logo in the middle of the grill and o the rear bumper.

i will edit that to make it clearer.
Thanks. Gold is OK in my book - it is, after all, the official bling of Chevy. ;)

(We should have it as an emoticon, too. :D)

Thanks! Best post EVER!

I want the LT with the RS package and halo ring/spoiler/moonroof/with leather. I just don't want to pay like a 7K premium just because it's a Camaro, though. I'd beat that dealer up soooo bad if he had the nerve to charge me 35K for a 25K car.

Someone please explain this to me. The way I'm reading this is the AFM is not available when you have a manual transmission...???
