Ed Welburn Says Camaro Interior Spy Photos Are Bunk, Confirms SS

Oh Muscle Car Wars, how much teasing will we be forced to endure? GM Design chief Ed Welburn divulged some interesting facts to Bill Bortzfield from Jacksonville.com about the 2009 Chevy Camaro at the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance this weekend. Welburn first lets slip that they'll have "the base model and the SS," thereby all but confirming an SS model. He then proceeds to rip into our exclusive and frequently-maligned spy shots of the 2009 Camaro interior and engine bay, saying "The production interior is better than the concept... what has been on the internet were engineering mules... those were the images that leaked out." Is it an excuse, the truth or are they just buying time while they make tweaks? Or perhaps all you unruly fan-boys merely mistook plastic floor sheeting and Holden seating as "production level." Only time will tell. [Jacksonville.com]
