Ready to order new Camaro!

I got bored at work ,so I sent out a few feelers to dealers about a new Camaro.I was looking to purchase Camaro with supplier discount and I found a local dealer willing to sell me one for supplier discount.I wanted to wait for 2nd year of production to get all the bugs out, but with what's going on with GM, I thought they might not be around,so I may go buy it Saturday! The dealer has allocations for 21 Camaro's and has sold 12 so far.I am interested in a 2SS with RS package in Black or Inferno Orange.Are there any pictures with the Inferno Orange interior package? I cannot decide on stick or automatic.Will the stick have launch control? Right now I own a LeMans Blue 2006 Vette with automatic and intend to keep it.I was figuring when I was to lazy to shift, I could jump in the Vette and just drive. I was going to get plates for the Vette and Camaro:

Vette - Shock
Camaro - Awe

First, welcome to the site. Second, take your time to look around and use that search tool in the tool bar. You will find GOBS of info by searching. Search INDY PIX for shots of the silver SS with Inferno Orange interior.

Check out this link for all ordering specific info.

The Impala is built on a separate line from the Camaro. Since demand in the U.S. for this car has tanked, this is the expected result. As bad as this news is (especially for the city of Oshawa), I can't see GM cutting production for any vehicle if the demand for it is high.

Best regardSS,

Welcome to the site!

I think Tag answered your question on the interior. You can also search for threads about stick vs. auto. In the end it is up to you, but I like your thinking. Since you already have an auto go for the stick. Enjoy the car and the site!

One has to wonder what happens after all the "enthusiasts" orders slow and then have to survive on "regular" Joe's walking in off the street.

Do folks think everything is going to get fixed and folks ready to spend $30K to $35K for a new vehicle in Feb???

Sadly i can't afford it and i am an enthusiast lol. I see what you're saying though, whats going to make someone pony up 30-35k for a car during a recession unless you're a camaro fan? I tonnes of people that don't know squat about cars and if they went to a dealership and saw the new camaro they'd think that is a nice looking car, but in todays market, a v-6, at 35k and things looking grim for the auto industry it'll be interesting to see what happens.

Let's hope for the best , the way the economy is going in North America right now we may only see one year of production of the SS IMO On the other hand this would make the SS ULTRA RARE and would be a collectors car , I heared someone say the same thing about the Challenger it could be AXED within a year if sales are not high enough

I have to admit, I got sideways on the entire Camaro situation. I love the new car, I want one so bad I can taste it. However, when I started contacting several dealers around my area, I was hit with a $2500-5000 over sticker at virtually every one I contacted with one exception who told me never over sticker but no supplier discount.

After all that I was very disappointed. Add to that,the stock market tumble and the Detroit 3 going hat in hand to Congress for help, I ended up wiped out of the market for the time being. I can only hope that we see some recovery and focus to redirect this whole mess.

Bottomline is I ended up being forced to sit out until things pick up. I hate being in this position. I would dearly love to be able to sit down sign the papers and write the check, but, it won't happen for a while.

Really makes me sick.

The layoffs in Oshawa are sad, first of all, I feel so bad for those great workers there.

However, Oshawa ia a HUGE complex. This does NOT affect Camaro production.

Regardless of everything, there is a backlog demand for the Camaro.

They are still projecting sales of 11 MILLION cars next crappy econmic year.

That's down from around 16 million, but it's still a s-load of vehicles.

Many will be 2010 Camaros.

Why would he do that? He stated he already has a 'vette and intends to keep it and add a Camaro. He doesn't need a price on any Corvette.

Can anyone actually confirm that the 2010 Camaro will qualify for the supplier discount?
My dealer told me that GM rep told him that he was ALMOST positive that the car would qualify.
---Yes, this site is addicting!

Make it a two for deal.... lots of reasons to move up to a 2009. More HP, better shifting, steering....and nearly at dealer cost. Not to mention 2009 may be one of the lowest production years since 1995 on Vettes.

Who knows what kind of deal I'd do on a vette / camaro deal....
