So from what i read the base model V-8 will have the same as the "premium" but detuned..... Hrmm i see myself in a base V-8 and modding it up and past the premium and still saving some dough....
I thought however that the camaro was hitting end of year 08 not 09.... anyone....??
to bad our current mods won't transfer over to the new maro... would save a few sheckles

I really hope Saleen doesn't have anything to do with the new Camaro.

yeah granted i dont want to see saleen build it at all but im glad they are doing something like that because thats smething that the didnt do with the 4th gens really. you have steeda, svt, rousch, shawn highland motorsports makes one, and saleen im sure im leaving a few more out and gm did have the berger ss but still wasnt produced like the mustang compaines. but yeah just make some copo or some yenko camaros but in a higher production

Matt of GMMG said that they plan on picking back up on production with the next gen. Camaro, so I'd say that I'll be planning on sucking it up and taking out a hella loan.She's baaaaaccccck...

I don't want a car that is going to make me differentiate Camaro, or Mustang. For example, " I have a Saleen".....Now you need to explain yourself. "No No No, its not a Mustang, its the New Camaro. I think it should remain Berger, and SLP. I dont want no SVT Camaro, it just doesn't seem right!

Look at SLP they are not only a GM company They do fords as well. As much as i dont want to see saleen team up with GM how much harm can it really do? Im sure SLP GMMG Linginfelter ETC... will all have their hand in on the new Camaro. I say the more options the better this way the name comes back strong and stays this time not to go on a 6 year retreat. This is coming from a die hard Chevy fan.

I would rather buy a 400hp SS and do 100hp worth of mods, which wouldnt be too difficult to achieve than buy a Saleen. It would also be a hell of a lot cheaper to do it yourself. Saleen is a Ford name to me, Can you imagine a Saleen Corvette next, a Saleen Trans Am? Steve Saleen has no loyalty, that company only goes where they can make a buck or two, Ford booted them out. Now there going after GM. You never saw Carol Shelby make a "Shelby Camaro" after they broke their relations with Ford back in the day. Shelby was a Loyal man to Ford. When it comes to Ford and Chevy, Camaro or Mustang, there is still a huge rivalry, and Saleen is a Ford Name!!! and always will be!!!

I am all for the new "Saleen Camaro". When I think of Saleen, all that races through my head is the S7, which I have dreams about but will never be able to own. The mustang never even enters my mind unless I see the word Saleen sprawled across the window. I have been a fan of Saleen racing before I ever saw a saleen mustang. When I mention my future car I will be more than happy to utter Saleen Camaro for that will be the closest I will get to my dream car.

either way ..... looks like ALL the 2009 cars (GM and Ford) are gonna have some serious power
