OFFICIAL word from GM is 1st quarter of 09. Word on the street is last quarter 08...if everything goes off w/out a hitch. Don't be dissapointed if you're expecting 08 and it happens in the beginning of 09... Just making sure we're all on the same track.

but how do the quarters run? I know some places run their quarters starting in April, some start in Aug for the next year. I always had the understanding that the new models were always released in September in order to ensure a proper amount of product by the end of the year.

July-Aug-Sep is normally the first quarter of a business fiscal year. Most cars come up end of September since it's the end of summer and a good time to build up popularity by the time summer comes around.

If this is the case,

July-Aug-Sep
Oct-Nov-Dec
JAN-Feb-March
April-May-Jun

They might be shooting for September, but if one thing sets them back a week, they'll have to wait until January to bring the car out so that they don't lose out on the sales for the quarter. (If you bring something out midway through the season, even if you sell what you expected, the first time you take inventory, you've sold half of what you expected for that period since you came out late. If you're factoring in expenses you've only made half of what you wanted and are at a loss.)

Everything is about money and making a quota.



BTW, this is my take on it. I could be wrong but it's just an opinion.

okay, i havent read the entire thread yet... but it doesnt look like anyone has mentioned the fact that in the movie it isnt actually a camaro...
it was built from a gto frame and doesnt even have real rims..
they are hubcaps specially made to look like the new ones. ive seen a few people ask about the brake calipers, and the reason they arent ther is because of this.

You can probably go to a local sign shop and have them made for less. Should cost you half of what ebay wants for them. Bring in a picture and they SHOULD font match and print some out within a few hours if they're not busy.

:yahoo::yahoo:DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures Transformers Rolls out on DVD and HD DVD October 16:yahoo::yahoo:

The armies of CYBERTRON invaded theaters with a juggernaut fury that shook the summer of 2007, but on October 16, 2007 fans of all ages will discover that there is far “More Than Meets The Eye” to the massive mechanical behemoths when TRANSFORMERS arrives on Earth in spectacular DVD and HD DVD two-disc Special Edition sets as well as on a single disc from DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures; distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment.


Marketing Support:

Paramount Home Entertainment will support the home video debut of TRANSFORMERS with one of the biggest media campaigns in the division’s history. The multi-million dollar blitz will include television, print, radio and online advertising reaching a four quadrant audience. The expansive campaign also will include a viral marketing program in which fans can go online to customize a message for their friends from OPTIMUS PRIME and send it via telephone or email. In addition, an array of high-impact displays will be deployed to retail locations across the country. Promotional partners including Chevrolet and Hostess will also extend the TRANSFORMERS message to millions of people.

Each TRANSFORMERS DVD will include an insert alerting consumers to Chevrolet's "The Bumblebee Camaro Sweepstakes". Beginning October 17, 2007, fans can enter to win one of three customized Chevy Camaro cars styled after the TRANSFORMERS AUTOBOT BUMBLEBEE at chevy.com/camaro. The sweepstakes also will be promoted with a wide-reaching television, print and online advertising campaign that will further extend the DVD messaging and excitement.
