80,000-100,000 Camaros per year
 
So.....if the Camaro assembly line is expected to produce say 80,000 cars minimum the first year, thats over 6000 Camaros the first month with 2 shifts. So there should be plenty of Camaros out there by April/May and the list of MSRP dealers should be getting larger. By next Summer it should be fairly easy to get one at or below MSRP.

Now the only question is what MSRP will be...

You are assuming that the car will only be sold in the US. I say it will still be tough to get what you want at a fair price a year from now.

The 2010 MY will last about 18 months . . . drop that down to 4000/mo. I don't know what the international availability is going to be though. Some will be sent overseas, but as for what % and when? No idea

:chevy: cool

GCguy2169 08-09-2008 09:31 AM

any more info on this? i thought they were making 150,000?

Txturbo 08-09-2008 10:38 AM

The sales goal is 80-100k/year to break even, they will make as many as they can sell.

I just got back from a Chevy dealer 1 hour ago. They had NO REAL INFO, but said the Camaro might start at mid 20's and go up to high 30's. $25k-$39k.

Dealers do not have pricing information. Do not ask dealers for any Camaro information unless they belong to this site.

We can debate the number of units sold per year all we want, but the important thing is that they make at least one, and it ends up in my driveway. :thumbup:

OMG dealers don't know anything right now, we know FAR more then they...

jojohn33 08-09-2008 01:08 PM

Well how many of those will be SS? I don't care anything about the v6 and I will die before I give a dealership 20k for having a car? I really wan tthe SS but I might have to move onto something else if I have to wait anthor year.

something like 20-30%. Originally it was supposed to be ~30% but fuel prices went up a lot since then and many who were on the fringe are likely to opt for the V6.

I specified dealers from this site as different because I was thinking of you, CamaroScotty. Not all dealers are true enthusiasts, and we are grateful to have one of the greats among us. :thumbsup:

Well lets hope the SS/RS package is a little cheaper than that considering the SS already comes standard with most of what the RS package will get you in the V6 version.. My hope would be the SS manual is $28k msrp starting and $2k for the RS package.

boxmonkeyracing 08-13-2008 06:24 PM

if they expect to sell that many then they need to price this close to 20k for the LS. not dreaming just fact. looking at the price of the mustang all the added features won't cause someone to hop up and buy one of these over a mustang. . .

Its easy to figure out the production total for the year.

after ramp up which is usually a month. we can do anywhere from 400 to 500 cars per shift per day. 5 days a week and possibly 6 if saturday overtime is scheduled. so safe bet, 5 days a week, for 12 months, knock off the 2 week shutdown and week at xmas and a handful of long weekends and federal holidays. This is if we are not told to slow production or speed it up. Do the math, i can't wait till i see them rolling into my station everyday.

I will miss working on the GMT-900's more though, i had ALOT of fun in the truck plant and made ALOT of friends over there :(

If it is competing with the Mustang, consider the RS package closer to the Mustang Premium package.

I agree with your stripe and sunroof estimate, but I think the sound system will be less with such low wattage.

Are there 2 or 3 shifts? If 3, thats 1200 cars per day. If thats the case, you will pump out 50K cars by summer. Is that correct?
