They MADE an AWD production GTO. Well, kinda. Its called HSV Coupe 4 Monaro. It will kill a lot of innocent things. Check this out, hardly any spin.

They're currently making an AWD, 320hp 6 speed manual Regal.

Camaro would be too heavy, doesn't warrant awd.

Thinking like this is why we can't have nice things... The aussies have it, I would pay the premium reasons:

1. AWD launch
2. Snow Capability
3. Awd handling
4. Awd launch

there you go 4 reasons why they should make an awd camaro!

The HSV 4coupe was a massive failure even by Holdens low sales goals for HSV models.

It was a heavy boat with an LS1 and 4 speed trans. It was significantly slower then the rwd HSV in every way unless it was raining/snowing.

Not to mention it demanded a hefty premium over the better performing RWD model.

But that built turbo one looks like fun.

This gets me thinking however, is there ANY manual transmission that could hook up the the HSV 4 coupe?

I don't think there's a manual AWD tranny for the LS engines.

They don't even try AWD for them cause they know that all us rednecks want a car that can do a smokey burnout. Isn't this part of the reason they stopped making the AWD Silverado SS after only a couple years?

All I'm saying is that it'd be nice if the new z28 were awd and manual, if its slower then put a super charger on it and bam... Expensive though :S
