I think the Camaro will come back. I hope it comes back, it'll encourage a "war" with the Mustang, and hopefully produce faster and better musclecars. I don't want a Mustang monopoly.

i agree with you but i think that as soon as the chevy sees that they need a car to compete with the poneys then they will upgrade their cobalts. although i would love to see the camaro come back

Cobalts? To compete with the Mustang? I don't think so. Cobalts are FWD, there is no way it will be in competition with the Mustang. The Mustang GT has 300 hp, I'd like to see a front-wheel-drive car with 300 hp.

The Cobalt and Mustang aren't in the same league. No comparison. The Cobalt is competing with Ford's Focus. Chevrolet currently has no car in the Mustang's category.

Just wanted to get the info out

like I said I don't know if it is true or not, but I would hope so, especially if it ends up doing somewhat well and they then bring back one of my favorite cars, the Firebird, which has always depended on Camaro sales.

Also to What... why would it be so hard to get a FWD car with 300 hp? I mean they make AWD cars with over 300 hp, so I don't see why it seems implausable to you.

Ok, understanable, cobalt and mustang, not happening, but where do you get off saying that chevrolet has no mustang category car, forget about the corvette? Unless you say that the corvette is in its own league with out a ford counterpart...

The Camaro IS comming back. It will probably be in 2007 based on the new GM "Zeta" platform.
The 1st year it is rumored to come out with a turbo V6 as the base Camaro, and the 400 hp LS2 in the SS, then the second year of production the Z/28 is supposed to come out with the 500 hp LS7.

Pictures

I don't want to get into this so all I will say is please just talk about the Cars

The Camaro I will assure you will return I am not possitive of when it will be returning but i have a few pictures of what it will look like when it does as far as they are concerned right now...

Let me say I am very impressed with the styleing the only thing i would change is the rear end i would make it a little wider than the rest of the body well a little more than it is...

I don't know about what the engine is suppose to be like but V-6 or not 400hp is very impressive compared to the mustangs V-8 with 300hp and a Z-28 with 500hp that would not only blow my mind but it would blow any and all mustangs off the road... In my opinion when Chevy brings it back it wont just be to compete with the new mustang because there will be no competition...

A while ago, I posted a topic on the "Return of Muscle Cars". It pretty much can happen and most likely will. There's no way that GM is gonna let their unfavorable GTO do battle with the Mustang all by itself. So yeah, the hype pretty much is true that the Camaro will come back, with pretty much the same engines that Mykdriver specified, but I think the Z28 would be a detuned LS7 and make less that 500 hp, somewhere in the mid-400s. Dodge could use its Charger as its competitor, given that they make the SRT-8 version a coupe, which I think they probably will. In other words there is a good chance that the muscle car wars could come back, but Ford sure has gotten a good head start.

Return of Muscle cars...

I wish that actual muscle cars would return... but we will have to live with sports cars which is good too. Being a Firebird driver I would love to see its return, should the new Camaro do well, only problem there being price if they use those engines. Cost won't be the same as it used to be.

Also barsy, I hate to tell you this, and am not trying to be rude, but those pictures you submitted are only a possibility of what the new Camaro could perhaps look like, in fact I believe those are renderings by a child, thusly just a dream of what he hopes they will look like when they return, although it is very possible they will use that style, it is just as possibly they will wait till the car comes out for the actual unveiling of what it will look like, to keep up suspense.

Smile camaros

I just wanted to add to some of the past messeges... I think that you GTO competes with the corvette just as much as the Cobalt competes with the Mustang, they just dont go together. Mustang and Camaros will always be competing agianst each other. Thats how its always been thats how it always will be no new car will change that. Personaly i think that Chevy will come out with the new Camaros and when they do i think that Mustang will have a tough time keeping up.
