GM High-Tech Performace claims the Camaro will be built
 
Check out the latest GM High-Tech Performace magazine...July '06. This mag usually always has the goodies on the Camaro. And...I don't think they would print this info if it wasn't reliable and verifiable. Let's see if I can plug in some pix...

Very interesting stuff! Thanks for sharing. Can't say I don't wish they'd produce it earlier though :(

I've read quite a few articles that say it could be out as soon as next year. Then you read stories like this and ouch. Who knows?...GM seems to be very quiet about all this. I betcha it comes out earlier than '09.

Here's another clip from the April '06 issue of GMHTP on page 10. :D

Take what you read in the magazine's with a grain of salt...they're usually full of just speculation.

At this point though, if I were a betting man, my money would be on seeing a production version in the not too distant future.

The '5th Gen. Bank Account' has already been set up. :D

I think GM is getting a feel for the publics opinion. Do we like the car? What would we change if anything? How much would we be willing to pay for a car like this and would GM be able to sell enough units to make a profit? I think they kicked back after unveiling the Camaro watching what we all had to say. I mean come on, if no one said anything, would they still build it? NO. Now that they know it's a sellar, it's all the little stuff that needs to be put together. I betcha anything GM hasn't formally announced anything because they really don't know when they can have it ready. They are probably all still trying to figure that out as we speak. Let's hope they have enough people working on it that they can finalize and announce their plans soon enough.

Bruno 08-02-2006 12:23 PM

i'm just worried that they take so long in planning and analyzing a business plan for the car that it completely loses all its buzz. They have to strike when the iron is hot when the craze over musclecars return is still high.

Come on people, read between the lines... There are at least four different concept Camaros in circulation right now and the car has a staring roll in a big time movie. I'll guarantee we'll see this masterpiece late next summer/early fall as an 08 model.

Now that would the most pleasant surprise! On a site note, I can't wait to see the Camaro in transformers. Are there any Challengers or Mustangs in the movie? ;)

BlacLac02 08-02-2006 07:21 PM

theres no way that this car is going to wait till 09 to come out especially if the challanger is coming out before that. those people in that magazine dont know any more about the car than we do. their just trying to start a bunch of hype. dont worry everyone the car is coming soon and i plan on having enough cash im my camaro5 savings account to pay it off.

KILLER74Z28 08-02-2006 08:53 PM

Lets just say I have seen the corporate side of one of the "Big Three". Vehicles have gone from drawings to production in less than 18 months more than once…

Hmmm...so if it came out in 2007, that would make it the 40th Anniversary Edition. Just another reason for GM to speed up the process!

Don't know about the Challenger, but here's two on the Mustang...looks like a Saleen (I think Saleen) is going to be a Decepticon.

JustinZS 08-02-2006 09:10 PM

Hah of course the mustang is an evil decepticon :) Camaro is one of the good guys!

Al Robinson 08-03-2006 06:36 AM

I really do not think they will wait until 2009 for start of production with a release in '10. Several things contradict the report. 1. the zeta platform was ready this summer. 2. the challenger will be ready real soon because they will base it on the current Charger platform. 3. GM has been dumb in a lot of things, but to show a Camaro in the July '07 release of the transformer movie and NOT have anything for the public for another 3 years is just not smart business. Chevrolet is flying high with being #1 in sales. They got there by building what the customers want. " What do we want?" " Camaro" "When do we want it?" "NOW".

Agreed. I bet it will be released sometime around then as well. Where's the 4th Concept Camaro? We have the silver one in Detroit, the red in LA, the Gold/blk racing stripe for transformers...but where's the 4th? I've only seen these 3.

DaveGoode 08-06-2006 10:59 AM

the new Camaro won't be built overseas it will be built in the oshawa plant in Canada My Dad works there and there just have to turn over the plant to the zeta platform which allows gm to build front, rear, and all-wheel drive on this highly flexable platform and Its a safe bet it will be out before 2010 the reason it's taking the all so long is because the plant is making the buick and grand prix which are both front wheel drive so they have to plan out the set up of the plant and you can expect the camaro to be better than the mustang it always was and it would kill gm money wise to come out second best

SO CHIN UP IT WILL COME JUST MAKE SURE YOU CAN HOLD ON

If Chevy does not release this car...I'm may have to jump ship from Bow Tie to Dodge if Chevy doesn't clean up their act. My family has been driving Chevy's way too long and lately, Chevy produced junk. And then the talk of a merger with Nissan. I have started a Camaro fund for 4 months now and if this car is not released. Challenger here I come. And GM, if you are reading this, I am one of many Chevy fans out there that are gonna and going to look at other Motor Companies for good stock horsepower(SRT-8, SRT-10 etc.) But I will never go Blue Oval, I'd rather travel in a horse and buggy. Please make this car into production soon. We can't wait forever, atleast I can't.

Hear is a dark red Camaro, but take it with a grain of salt, I just found the same picture but the Camaro was blue. Possible photo shop...

Okay. They were photo shop then. Here's two of the three pix I've seen of the same Camaro. We at least know there's three...red, siver, bumble bee (which is probably completely hollow and fake seeing as though it doesn't even have calipers).

That's amazing. Thanks for resurrecting this one, Tag! I actually remember reading that article as well as all those facts. And of course, I remember thinking, "please make it the LS3"... Actually pretty impressive looking back how much of the speculation and fact is still true, and then of course, what isn't. Produced in Canada, not Australia, and the "base" engine is an advanced 3.6L V6 with 304 HP! Production is beginning in early 2009 as a 2010 model, we still have the IRS (thank you, GM!!), and there's STILL talk about a supercharged option... ;)

FenwickHockey65 03-15-2009 12:19 PM

LOL @ 300 HP 5.3L V8.
