2011 Chevrolet Camaro rumors

Looks like the Camaro will be getting a few tweaks for the new model year.

Mostly to keep up with the competition from the 2011 Mustang.
The only thing the Camaro actually could use is true iPod connectivity, and a Navigation option.
Which it is not getting.
Here are some news from a letter rumored to have been sent to “Camaro5”:
Good morning, Camaro Comrades!

  1. All the Camaro really needs now is about 300 less lbs and it will really be competitive with the Mustang. The Camaro beats the Mustang in looks, but simply is too heavy and not responsive enough. Yes, I am a paper racer… have not driven either one, but live vicariously through car mags… I am such a poseur.

    You do realize that looks are subjective, right?

    I think the Camaro already looks like the dated cartoon car it is. Go drive on, you will be shocked by how poor the visibility is as well as the uninspired interior.

  3. NICE! I like the Yenko stripe on the side. Thats good they got more power out of it. I'll bet they coulda got more out of it though. You could always put an intake and exhaust system on it and then fiddle with the ecu too to get even more. And for a few bucks more you could always put a couple of med/large size turbos on it, reinforce the tranny and kick the crap out of the SS. But I digress.

    At the end of the day the additional power wont do anything for it. It needs to lose weight or the Mustang needs to get bigger. I do like the interior of the Mustang better though.

    Oh well..it does'nt matter as I too am a poseur paper racer:)

  4. i think it's dated already also. And a press release about a new color? there was a time new colors were EXPECTED every year. Big Whoop!

    The Mustang is a much more desirable car. MUCH more.

  5. HAHAHAHAHA!!!! I just read the other day that GM DID'NT increase the power of this engine AT ALL!!! Rumor has it that they initially underestimated the power ratings of this engine but now, all they're doing is using the ACTUAL SAE power numbers. It's all marketing BS. At the end of the day the Mustang is still lighter and that's what leads to shorter times. However I do still prefer the independent rear suspension in the Camaro and applaud GM for doing this.
