Convertible is worth waiting for

GM expects the Camaro Convertible to be in showrooms by the end of the 2010 calendar year. Personally, this is the version we have been waiting for here at With MSRP expected to be $28-$40K depending on the performance and trim model you choose, this car should sell very well.

Car and Driver recently named the Camaro Convertible one of their top 25 cars worth waiting for in their May 2010 issue.

Chevrolet recently used their social media connections to release images of the convertible. See their page here to see more.

LS9 Lingenfelter Camaro at Camaro5fest

Very nice!  This 855 horsepower 2010 Camaro SS runs 10.36 @ 139.5 MPH at Camaro5fest in Georgia this past week. Powered by a GM LS9 with plenty of go fast goodies from Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, this was one of the cars to watch!

Which Cold Air Intake for your Camaro SS?

Installing an aftermarket Cold Air Intake is one of the most common performance modifications on late model cars.  A CAI (cold air intake) is used to improve the flow and lower the temperature of the air going into the motor.  The result is increased efficiency and power.  These kits come in various shapes and sizes, installation is fairly easy and can be performed by any backyard mechanic with a few basic tools.

GM High Tech Performance magazine recently tested seven of the top CAI packages out there on a 2010 Camaro SS LS3.

The test consisted of the following basic steps:
  • Install intake system
  • Reset fuel trims and begin data logging
  • Observe idle quality
  • Observe low speed driveability
  • Observe part-throttle driving, in traffic and around town
  • Data log two wide-open throttle runs, back-to-back from 3,500 to 6,500 rpm in Second gear
  • 45 minutes of cool down, change air intake system Rinse and repeat
Very interesting article, to see the complete test and the results, see the article here.

2011 Camaro details released

Chevrolet released a few details about the 2011 Camaro earlier today. While we were hoping for some V8 related performance details in  light of the recent web storm of 2011 Mustang GT performance, we did get a litle glimpse of what is coming for the Camaro.

  • Horsepower increase for V6 engine
  • Synergy color to be made available across the lineup
  • Head-Up Display
The V6 Camaro is rated at312 HP for 2011. This is slightly above the 305 HP rated V6 we hear is going to be in the 2011 Mustang.  "The 304 horsepower in the 2010 Camaro was actually a conservative rating on our end," said Tom Sutter, GM V-6 chief engineer. "But we knew already that this award-winning engine produced at least the amount of power we stated, but now we've gone the extra step in certifying the engine for this application and have verified an additional 8 horsepower."

Synergy Green will now be available on all Camaro models in 2011. According to Chevrolet, this will be a limited run color however.

Following the lead of the Chevrolet Corvette, HUD (Heads Up Display) will be available on some Camaro models in the 2011 model year.

Motor Trend big 3 shootout

Motor Trend magazine put the 2010 Camaro SS LS3, 2011 Mustang GT 5.0 and the 2010 Challenger SRT8 through the paces.
While we agree with the interior/visibility comments regarding the Camaro, was it really reason enough to put the Camaro in third place?  Second to the overweight, overpriced, underpowered Challenger? You be the judge.

Looking at the pre-production performance numbers of the V6 and 5.0l 2011 Mustang, GM had better up the stakes a bit with the 2011 Camaro. Some details are due later this week, stay tuned to the blog for 2011 Camaro information!
