GM still has all of the details of the interior upgrade and various hardware details to unveil, so they're probably not too pissed. Also, now they can monitor the web & media and get a hint of what kind of reception the C6 will receive. To me, that reception seems to be pretty positive. I LOVE the way it looks! :thumbsup: More HP & better interior will be icing on the cake! :)

GM realeased these on purpose, I can't beleve if Chevy was trying to hide C6 until January that they would be this careless. They knew what thay were doing. Now they have got everyone dying to know what the car looks like from the front.

I'm not crazy about all those options. I hope the Z06 has a lot less "heavy" stuff. I don't have a problem opening the car and driving it like any other car.

Really great information, obviously someone has seen an order form or a brochure. However, the answers to the questions at the end have me very confused as to how the C6 is shedding C5 lbs - if it really is. Five inches shorter with fixed lights (larger rear glass) will NOT save 150 lbs from a C5 Coupe! It's easy to see why some posters are not giving up on the Al HF frame, regardless of what has been posted. The Coupe / Vert has no Ti exhaust, no CF body panels, how the heck are they going to shed pounds?
