It looks like the G8 will.

Pontiac claims the extra-stiff structure allows for a more precise suspension setup with less chassis flex. In addition, the engine is positioned farther back from the front wheels and the battery has been relocated to the trunk for a nearly 50/50 front-to-rear weight distribution. Traditional front-wheel-drive sedans usually have around 60 per cent of their weight biased toward the front half of the vehicle.

The battery on my Charger is in the trunk. It's a nice size battery, I thought they might have gotten the idea from Benz since they have been doing it for years. I think its a good idea.

I am sure it would help snow traction to have more weight in the back and help all traction to have 50/50 distribution.

To help snow traction, you could always just throw heavy **** into the trunk. Bags of sand, bags of cement, cinderblocks, dead bodies, etc.
It helps my truck, anyway.
I think I'll keep the dead bodies in my truck, and leave the Camaro trunk empty, and warm and cozy in the winter. :)

Are you saying you're going to stay in your warm and cozy camaro trunk?

;)
Well, if I talk any more about the Camaro, and put up any more posters in my house, my wife will be preferring that I sleep in there.

It'll be easy to hook up, if the battery is in the trunk, too. :)

But then I'd have to worry about ventilation and storing the wood. An electric blanket sounds so much easier. Do you think there will be an outlet plug in the trunk? :)

I don't doubt the battery will be back there many cars hese days have them back there. I know for sure the Magnums, cobalts and new altimas do.

That's a lot better than where the battery in my grandfather's intrepid is....it's buried in the corner of the engine well..right infront of the front right wheel. It's in a little spot between the front of the car and the wheel well. So if you get hit there..you'll have a very banged up/explosive battery.
But the trunk is worse, because think of all those Mustangs and Challengers that will be behind the Camaro trying to catch up. :)

Because by the time we stop, they will be still accelerating trying to catch us. Bam, right in the booty.
