No, a lot of people on this site predicted that around 1000 Camaros had been ordered. We were off by about 2000.

3000+ orders so far

According to this article I found on GMInsider.

I like this comment "Those who have placed an order will get updates from GM, including notification of the target production week for their car."

Here's the link - http://www.gminsidenews.com/forums/f...ee-days-70342/

No. Full production doesn't begin until February 2009.

I'm so envious of all of yall that got to order a Camaro. I'm so obsessed with this car it's not even funny. But... me being 17, I can't order one and I'm sure my parents won't get it for me. I would be sooo down to pay for a $30,000+ Orange Camaro SS RS with 21" rims, I don't care if I mess up my credit (the car's soo worth it), but my parents would most likely say otherwise I wish we could win the lotto.

My birthday's in April, so hopefully when I turn 18, I can get one. For those of you who did order one, do you have to put something down?? And do you have to be 18 just to order one??

Any suggestions on how to get my dream car? HELLLLP!

I was way off on my guess. I thought people would be flooding the dealerships. I also thought that dealers would go ahead and order at least one in hopes of having a buyer when the car was delivered.

If my dad wins the lottery, I'm going with a 2SS/RS instead!


Anyways, I'm 17 as well, but I'm not planning on getting my Camaro for a year or so. I'm pretty well qualified for a few college scholarships, so hopefully that'll save me some money that I can set aside for my Camaro.

The general public has no idea you can order a Camaro today. Also, dealers are not allowed to pre-order. GM has told them that they will only accept public sales at this point.

3000 in 3 days isn't really saying much when you consider there are over 500 chevy dealerships all across the country... they had 1000 orders for the Solstice in 40 minutes when the first orders were taken...
so I wouldn't brag too much on 3000 in 3 days.

Well that is probably BS for the simple reason that the system they use to book a car could not handle processing 1,000 orders in 40 minutes.

Also, the Solstice ordering occurred when the car came on-line, not 5 months before with no advertising whatsoever as is the case now.

Actually I talked to my local dealer on monday and he said "new cars become a fad that will fade in 6 months and there will be deep discounts".
Has anyone guessed what the V8 automatic with headers, dual exhausts and fresh air intake would make in horsepower? I also wonder if the supercharger similar to the ZR1 will be put on the SS by some tuner.

That is a big part of it, getting the suppliers to ramp up their production at least. As for that seat manufacturer they closed down one of their plants, there is still another plant at the same site.

These dates, including start of production, appear to be worst case scenario, which is what I would have expected. I would guess that by Feb 16th, not only will production have started, but that will be the day the first few hundred, if not first couple thousand, are loaded on semis and pulling out of the Oshawa plant on their way to delivery at a dealer near you... my opinion only.
You heard what you wanted to hear. My opinion only.


I don't mean to sound so negative to all of you, but GM has a schedule: Get visual design done in 2005. Show car in 2006. Engineer the car in 2006. test car in 2007. tweak design in 2007. work out manufacturing details in 2008. build LT/LS/SS in 2009. Offer Z28 in 2010 (). Or something fairly similar.

Point is, after over 3 years of working on a tight schedule, it cant be advanced in the final months. They would have been intending on building the car in feb 2009 as far back as feb 2005. The final announcement would be made only after they knew that they could meet that deadline. Perhaps the initial plan was for fall 2008, or maybe spring 2009. We won't know for sure. But they are going to be building the car when they say. It cant be moved at this point
