Yea what is the source? I hope GM is messing with us by telling us it will be out in 2 years, but then surprise us by getting it to us by next spring

Still, I'm hoping that the part about the car getting approval is somehow true. Too bad all we've heard from GM recently is that the car has received further funding for development.

I just got the issue with that article in it. I wonder how many people will send Motortrend letters for the next issue?

So no word from Motortrend at all if this was actually a typo? I can't see the bit about coupe coming out this year being true at all. Imagine that, the actual version comes out this year and then the concept car debuts in the Transformers movie next summer. :eek:

It's just my opinion, but I have a certain amount of skepticism whenever I read an article on the concept in any automotive magazine.

To the best of my knowledge, the concept hasn't even been approved yet. So any talk of a 'vert being given the green light is just "fodder" to sell magazines.

I'm not saying magazines are bad, or that what they report is B.S., just take whatever you read as speculation, at this point.

For the time being, I'm keeping my fingers crossed and waiting to hear from GM that the concept is a "GO".

Exactly. Every magazine wants the "scoop" on a hot icon car like the Camaro. I wouldn't be surprised if they took too much liberty in reporting the convertible has been approved. All that GM has really said recently is that the Camaro development has gotten additional funding (I think).

I think that someone would leak the information by now if it was comming out there are so many people who find out about secret car projects GM couldn't keep a secret like that

yeah thats a bunch of bs. this year is more than half over. if they were to bring it out in such a short time it would be a 2007 , they probabbly did mean 2008 and as far as putting the escalade motor in it thats a bunch of bs too. there not gonna put a truck motor in when they alreadt have a bad ass race motor like the 6.0 i dont knowwhy they would even say that after the concept had had the 6.0
