    Pretty freaking awesome. Not sure how I feel about the looks, or the technology, but the numbers speak for themselves. Linky.

    saw a test mule all camouflaged about 3 months ago, and saw my first actual undisguised version on friday night. Good looking car, but I'm not crazy about the Camaro taillights.

    The corvettes will never hold supercar prestige, even if they hit super car numbers in the performance arena. Same problem with the 911.

    The sheer popularity of them has made them common place. Almost no one does a double take at a Vette driving by them. nor a 911. maybe a SLIGHT glance at a 911. because you se 1432432 every day. it's nothing special.

    See a gtr, you look.
    See a viper, you look.
    See a tesla, you look

    and all those are in the ball park price wise. of course the 300k cars, you always look at :)
    But they have a certain exclusivity that the mentioned marques do not hold, even if they are better or more bad ass or cheaper.

    And when 95% of them sold are automatics, and driven slowly by middle-later aged balding mid life crisis men, never actually being driven as they were supposed to be, it takes the car even further away from the exclusivity and prestige of a driver's car to make we drivers, except corvetteguy, really care about them. :)

    I think that's sort of the point. They're freaking fun, and somewhat affordable. That's why this one is so awesome. It's not supposed to be rare.

    The 4 tail light design ? That's more Corvette than Camaro. Camaro actually copied it from the Vette.

    As far as the 7 speeds - Just about every review I've read said the 6 speed transmissions were gated too closely.

    The 89 I drove was terrible for shift confidence.

    The new one has taillights that essentially copy the current Camaro. Then again so does the new Impala so maybe it's a brand recognition thing.

    Saw another one today on the freeway. All in all I like it.
