    Default Heavy Chevy

    300 Lbs lighter than a ZL1... 500 Lbs to go
    Really, exactly where is all the mass in these Camaros - in the body, chassis structure, exhaust, 47 airbags?...

    I think it's a good ride with the LSD, ceramic brakes, solid suspension. Good to see the LS7 live on

    Z/28 is about 160-lbs heavier than a Boss 302

    Ok, let's look at the curb weight of some performance coupes from the guys who make "Ultimate Driving Machines"

    2012 M3 3704-lbs...about 115-lbs less than a Camaro Z/28 but also quite a bit smaller
    2012 M5 4288-lbs...about 500-lbs more than a Z/28 and 160-lbs more than a ZL1

    These comparison numbers really put things in perspective.

    I'm not saying the Camaro would not be better if it weighed less but I think it's important, when we beat-up on the car for it's mass, that we look at the state-of-art in the performance sports coupe/sedan segment.

    I remember the early rumors about the 5G Camaro was that it was going to come to market on the heavy-side. I think, part of that is the Camaro's lineage from a somewhat larger, four-door sedan built in Australia, the Holden Commodore. If the Camaro were built on a unique platform, as were the previous versions, it would probably get lighter.

    Also I neglected to mention the Z/28 comes standard with all the cooling enhancements (engine oil, trans and axle coolers) you'd need in a track car where the BOSS 302 has that stuff as options. My guess is you could add 30-lbs for coolers and fluids.

    Can't remember what the Challenger SRT8 weighs but it's a porker also.
    The current CTS V coupe weighs in around 4200 pounds.

    The new 2014 CTS is supposed to be a couple hundred pounds lighter in the VSport version and 420 HP.
