Unveiling Camaro at 2007 Detroit Auto Show?
 
Any rumours as to anything related to Camaro that might be unveiled at the upcoming Detroit auto show? Just wondering. If they are testing out prototypes right now in Australia, maybe they can bring something like that to the show? Or like what DCX did at the SEMA show pulling out a Super Stock Challenger? Just wondering. Maybe they'll shock everybody and unveil the production version.:thumbup:

Moose 12-05-2006 09:57 AM

I doubt we'll see a production version. :(

One thought, maybe the 'vert? :iono:

Other possibilities: the rumored 'Blue Devil' 'Vette(or whatever it ends up being called), a new SS Impala (which is to be built on the same platform as the Camaro, w/ RWD V8).

Yeah, it has been unofficially confirmed that a convertible will be shown at the NAIAS

I've heard that the new RWD Impala will definitely be unveiled at the '07 show.

But I read on another message board that there will be two things Camaro unveiled at this autoshow. A convertible is a possibility. What is the other?

LowRider 12-05-2006 10:41 AM

Man I can't wait to see the Camaro conv. and the new Corvette this will be awsome.:burnrubber: :evil:

As far as anything "Camaro related", maybe the 'vert, but anything else 'Camaro', I think GM will hold onto that a while yet. ;) What you read on message boards, re; "two things Camaro", some of it is just speculation. ;)

True. Like the rest of us, I'm overrun with anticipation for this thing to come out. However, I have read on another message board that ALCOA wheel manufacturing has already received an order from GM for 450,000 Camaro rims to be built ASAP. Combine that, with the protype testing going on now in Australia, seems like its moving very fast. They are definitely fast tracking the car as much as possible.

On the contrary, we hear absolutely nothing about prototype testing and contracts for the Dodge Challenger, and they are scheduled to go into production next year with an early 2008 release to dealers. Seems like the Camaro is progressing alot faster. Strange.

HEY!!! :eek: Moose?!?! :D This wasn't speculation. This was straight from the horses mouth! ;) I also heard the Impala would be there along w/ a few other new GM rides. Personally, I wasn't paying too much attention to those topics. I was recording everything in my brain Camaro that night.

This means we will be seeing spy shots of the Camaro shorty in the near future. I was told we would be seeing two things Camaro at the Jan 07 Detroit Auto Show. I was not told "what". I was just told "two things Camaro". Who knows, maybe we'll see something like a convertible and maybe it'll be a "finished" product. Jan is just around the corner!!

I'm not getting on you Moose. You know I'm playin. :thumbsup:

As far as what those two things were, I couldn't get the info. Just "two things Camaro". It could be a vert w/ an old 67/8/9 vert to go along side it. It could be a proposed production model of a vert and a coupe. I really have no clue...just two things Camaro.

:laugh: Sorry Tag. ;) That's what happens when I don't read a thread thoroughly. :o

Hey, I thought it was kinda funny. :clap: I was like...WHAT THE?! But, that's how it goes. Everything, or just about 97% of everything, is just that...speculation. So, yeah. You're right. We know of so far 5 or 6 things that are going to change, when they'd like to release it, and for sure "two things Camaro" in Jan. according to Scott. If two things Camaro don't come out at the show, it's because the preset schedule has changed.

LowRider 12-06-2006 11:12 AM

idk but I hope they don't change much I reall like the car the way it is.

TAG UR IT 12-06-2006 02:02 PM

Agreed. I don't like the side mirrors and the dash needs to change a bit. Other than that, keep it the same.

MarkLS2 12-07-2006 07:53 AM

I think the camaro production car "unveiling" will sort of happen in the next few weeks when prototypes of the production car hit the roads, depending on how much camoflague is put on the car (is any camo really needed at this point.....!) We will be able to see what the production car will look like and what elements were changed... :thumbup:

I don't see any camaro bodies driving around 'down under' anytime soon, I see Zeta chassis and powertrains running the streets of Australia under cover of other Holden models :thumbsup:

I agreed with you and was typing that. Now, I'm having second thoughts. If they have the production version in Australia running the streets, why can't they have another for GM to show at NAIAS in Detroit? :confused: The only reason I can think of why they don't show it is this... You release the final version in Jan of 07...then show the transformers movie in July of 07. You still have two years before it is released? I don't know. That's some pretty bad promotional moves for GM. I see a lot of people losing interest and buying other brands. They have to be very smart with this. If they show the final version, they have to come out with it at the end of 07 (with Transformers keeping it alive halfway throughout the year).

Don't get me wrong. I have my hopes up too and think it IS possible that they show the final version. They will have some information...something....

LowRider 12-07-2006 01:22 PM

Tag I wish you could be right on this. Maybe you are maybe your not. But for now we are all in the dark. Just waiting on the light.

Maybe they'll unveil the Production version at the New York autoshow instead. That would work better with the timing of the tests being currently done in Australia. Maybe I'm wrong here, but it seems to me that they already have the major leg work done on the Camaro. The Zeta chassis cars (Commodore, Impala, etc.,) already have their camoulflaged (and non-camoulflaged) spy photos floating around everywhere(http://www.leftlanenews.com/2006/06/...-commodore-ve/. Shouldn't be too hard to slap a body together with a Zeta chassis for an auto show.

TAG UR IT 12-08-2006 03:18 AM

I really have no idea what to expect. I'm lost on this one. I know we'll see somthing. ;) It's just a month away. :thumbup:

Casull 12-08-2006 09:19 AM

The stars are aligned for an early '08 arrival. :)

It sure looks that way. GM is working hard to get it out the door. That's obvious.:thumbup: Unlike the Dodge Challenger, for which you hear absolutely no rumors, nothing. I wonder why.

yourbassist 12-10-2006 11:28 PM

Not to be rude because I'm a fan of both the new Camaro and Challenger but I want the Camaro first and I know that I spend some time on this forum looking around but have made no effort to find any extra info about the Challenger other than what I read here. Wouldn't it be reasonable to assume that we haven't heard as much about the Challenger because we aren't looking as hard and aren't as interested?

TAG UR IT 12-10-2006 11:37 PM

Personally, I do like the looks of the Challenger and am looking forward to its release. But, I'm just not as interested in the Challenger as I am in the Camaro. Two guys from work both said that if the Challenger was priced right, they were going to buy one. I say, "good for them." Dodge can do it and do it well, but I don't really care to follow. I can't recall once doing a google search on the Challenger. Not my cup of tea.

All you have to do is a search for the Challenger on the net and you can find just as many Mopar fans on forums like this one. As for the look of the challenger, I like it but they need to do something with the ass end. I don’t know what it is but it just does not flow with the rest of the car. :iono:

boxmonkeyracing 12-11-2006 08:03 AM

I can't wait til 08 in a way. I think I'm going to volunteer to stay in iraq for a year. lol so I can save my money. I'd have enough (I hope) to buy the top end model with a very small loan. lol
