I'm with ya on saying it looks like the Camaro concept's underpinnings.

Not to ruin the party, but I don't think it's anything that special. IIRC in the original Velite press release, there was a video showing the Velite concept being driven around.

They have to put it on something to make it drive around right? As long as it runs, it doesn't matter if it's a prototype platform or a current production one.

in MPH, they say the camaro concept sits on the CURRENT GTO platform

They are WRONG.

Is that an SLA configuration? Sorry, but I'm a bit of a newbie to suspension configs.

No that is the rear end which only has one control arm. SLA stands for Short Long Arm where you have 2 unequal length arms. This has 1 strut on each side I think it would be called a McPherson strut.

Wrong. The rear of it is Sigma (from an STS), the front is Zeta.
