    Default Scuttlebut on the Next Camaro

    After the Mustang adds a few pounds, the Camaro will lose a few hundred:

    Very cool but if it only loses 300-400 pounds it should end up weighing about the same as a Mustang.

    If the next Camaro weighs at least 350 lbs. less than the current one, I'll eat my hat . . .

    The car is based on the Alpha platform, which underpins the Cadillac ATS, and that car weighs 3,300 pounds. The new Camaro should be close to that.

    What I hope Chevrolet does not do is tease the living daylights out of the new design as it did with the 2010 Camaro. The car started showing up in movies and at car shows in 2007, so by the time it came out in 2010, I was already kind of tired of looking at it.

    Keep it under wraps for as long as possible.
