2014 SLP Panther Camaro: It's Got a Big Cupholder

December 20, 2013

2014 SLP Panther Camaro

Unless you've got supervillain-style plans to turn the world backward on its rotational access, 600 horsepower isn't extremely practical. If you've got a heavy right foot, worn out rear tires will stack up quickly and your wallet won't thank you for it later. It's entertaining to be able to light up the tires at nearly any speed, but it isn't entirely pragmatic. The cupholder in our long-term 2014 SLP Panther Camaro is a different story.

Carried over from the regular Camaro, the cupholder in this center console is colossal enough to hold my supersized Sunday morning dose of caffeine and sugar. The cupholder orientation is backward (the larger one is in the front and the smaller one is in the rear), which forces me to hit the half-full can of iced tea every time I shift gears, but this feature has all sorts of road trip potential.

As you can you need a EDIT button in this case and we the commentators often need a EDIT button as well, lets help everyone by adding a EDIT button!-----WALL OF TEXT MUST DIE!----

    Pretty bad interior fail - even WITH the short shifter, the stick still hits a moderately tall drink in the cupholder? So with the regular shifter in a Camaro SS, it would probably hit even a shorter drink. How do you design a console without noticing something like this?
