    It's not going to happen. Just like the Chevelle, El Camino and all of the other rediculous bullshit about upcoming cars that people see online.

    You know what's strange is I had a much stronger reaction to that than I did to the Corvette going to a mid engine arrangement.

    Theoretically, why not? Camaro has always been sort of a corvette trickle down vehicle, got the driveline a couple years later. An even more affordable mid engine sports car, sure, why not?

    Kind of reminds me of the M4S Turbo Interceptor for some reason.

    Camaro has to be on a platform shared by multiple vehicles. That's why it will probably never be mid-engine. The only platform that GM has that is mid-engine is the Corvette. It's an expensive platform and that means a mid-engine Camaro would be expensive....just like Corvette. Doesn't really make sense to have 2 mid engine cars in the same price range does it?

    Camaro needs to be a 4 seater too.

    Good points. Chevrolet might not have room for two halo cars

    If they go forward with the Corvette SUV then they might go with Corvette as a separate brand. If that happens then I don't see why they wouldn't make a mid-engine Camaro.

    And from what I've seen the Camaro team and the Corvette team are not worried about stepping each other's toes. Chevy wants the best out of the two cars as long as it's profitable.
