I'm not a huge new generation camaro lover and maybe some of that sentiment stems from owning a first gen but GM apparently has done many things correct when one observes Camaro sales, i.e. bottom line, the results. I'm fortunate to have a grandson (one of 6) who drives and he and his friends come over to our place often. They all seem to really dig the new camaro's and the handliing thing is just as important as the get up and go. We can call it fat, too wide, whatever but that rascal is flying around a road course and it's going to catch an eye from many. Personally I like the wider/lower look and when hitting speeds of 190 you better have some features designed into the car for aerodynamics. We have a C6 Z06 and that LS7 engine rocks with performance as the torque band is unreal as it pulls from start to finish with no added turbo's etc. I think they hit the nail correct using that motor and it will sell well along with having no engine engineering and development cost. Things change over time and I love those 427 and larger small blocks. The LS motors are even becoming the hot ticket for rodders, resto-mods, and touring cars. Another advantage with the LS7 is going down the highway in 6th gear doing 60mph at 1200 rpm and no downshift for speeding up (that torque) while easily obtaining 25 to 26 miles per gallon.
