Phelan to GM: build the Camaro - quickly


from the Detroit Free Press

May 15, 2006

By MARK PHELAN
FREE PRESS AUTO CRITIC

Mark Phelan was the first writer to drive the Chevrolet Camaro concept vehicle this morning at General Motors Milford Proving Grounds.Here are his early impressions: It sounds even better than it looks and it looks exactly like a 21st century Camaro should.

The 400 horsepower V8 has the bubbling note of authority a muscle car needs and the interior was an ingenious combination of comfortable modern materials and design touches, like the round aluminum shift knob and big circular speedometer and tachometer, that harken back to the classic 69 Camaro.

GM hasn't said if it will build the Chevy Camaro yet, but barring a catastrophe they will and it can't get this sharply styled sports coupe on the market soon enough.

You would have to assume if they are letting the press drive it around Milford that the underpinnings are basically the same as the production model. Otherwise they'd risk setting either unrealistically good or unrealistically bad expectations.

Well I suppose that's a good sign that GM is allowing the press access to the concept?!

It sure looks like a new Camaro is on the horizon, but I don't want to uncross my fingers just yet. :D
