    Code 130 RS = 2.0 turbo.

    So the question came up as to what the "RS" signified on the Code 130 RS at the LA show. "RS " signifies a 270 HP, 2.0L turbo. The business case for the Code appears to be moving along with significant internal support. Also, this car is being considered as a "very different" type of car from the next Camaro.


    That's all for now.....

    I can see this Code 130 RS 2.0 turbo being the top performance model bridging the gap between the 6th gen base Camaro which is also to use the 2.0 turbo. The Code RS being a pure driver at a lower price point to take on the likes of the Sub/Toy twins while the base Camaro can offer the 2.0 turbo to help with fuel economy and also be used as an entry level trim on a larger pony car platform that is to support much higher HP models up the food chain.

    It seems such a chasis could make a good Solstice replacement as a 2 door coupe/convertible.

    If this is produced I wonder if the Camaro will actually get the 2.0L turbo 4. Unless the power is raised to 300+. The lower output turbo 6 with around 330hp and 8 speed trans would work just fine for the base model Camaro starting at 27K. I pray GM can pull this off in a timely manner.

    I would very much like to see this come to fruition. Make a brz killer
    I didn't go to math school, so I'm not going to do the math.

    Re: Code 130 RS = 2.0 turbo.

    Was very nice to see something about this earlier tonight. Love the little 2.0T hints that were dropped.

    Cobaltss_King, I am also wondering if the base Camaro would need to have the 2.0T as the base if the C130RS is filling that spot below the Camaro. Maybe the Camaro can use the 3.0L V6 that the base CTS uses. That would help differentiate Camaro and the C130RS.

    I believe that the 2.0T is locked in as the base Camaro engine. I do wonder what was meant by " very different" type of car.

    There have been hints and rumors that the body style might change on the C130RS to help keep it from competing with the Camaro. Hatch or shooting brake are the most logical changes and have been hinted as well. I still think the size, design and engine and price difference will be enough to separate the two in the market place.

    I really hope a AWD sedan variant of this car comes to fruition.

    Re: Code 130 RS = 2.0 turbo.

    The styling of the 130RS is subjective--I like it and then I don't. My hope is that if they do bring it to market, that it will not be a flop, like the SSR was, due to inadequate power and functionality. I loved the SSR and would love to own one... but, it came out way too underpowered with the 5.3 and no manual option... then came the 6.0 with a manual, unfortunately too late.

    Good luck with this little booger! My best regards.

    In the sea of new automotive faces,
    there's nothing like the appreciation and beauty of an older model. Let's represent!

    Hints, rumors, internal support-----timely manner sounds like a pipe dream more and more.

    Really hope I'm wrong.

    Chevy really needs this car. Chevy have a gap in it's line-up for a compact rear-wheel drive car to compete with the Toyota/Scion/Subaru triplets, Hyundai Genesis, Mazda RX-8, and the BMW 1-series. But I would change the name to Chevelle, or Nomad, to honor the history of small rear-wheel cars at Chevy.

    Except you can buy an BRZ/FR-S and by the time that GM comes close to releasing one it will be more money and about 3 years late to the party.

    The thing about the BRZ and FR-S is they will have a ridiculous aftermarket supporting them. So buyers will be presented with two options: 1) Car with a 3 year history and thriving aftermarket or brand new car support by no one yet. I know which I would pick.

    GM is not about taking chances, it's about going with what is proven in the market by others. Good, Bad or indifferent. The volt/vette is about the only exceptions I can think off. I would include the CTS-V but it's GM's answer to the M5 and AMG.
