Yeah, but dodge has been comparing the SRT 392's performance with the Mustang GT500 and the RT with the SS camaro. They need a supercharged option to compete with the GT500 and the upcoming Z28.

That would be interesting, you could buy them from an OEM distributor once they were released and out for a few months. Mabye Chevy parts plus, GM Parts House, or one of the dealers on camaro5 could put a package together for 2010-2011 Camaro's wanting the performance suspension.

Not to mention, Dodge isn't afraid to offer Furious Fuschia as well. WE WANT A DECENT FREAKING BLUE GM!

I have asked this very question MANY times. The way it looks, I wouldn't hold your breath waiting for LeMans Blue...or ANY decent blue for that matter. Nice going, GM.

This is the color they need to offer on the Camaro SS.

I'm seriously thinking of having my SS painted in Jetstream Blue Metallic.

I agree with you HEAVY...I like the old school colors...looks Marina Blue..looks 68 Camaro

I know 90 percent of the folks on this forum like misty metallic black...like the Black Granite...but I was so disapointed when I got my 2009 Traverse..(as posted earlier)..and found out it was an metallic color...(I travelled a ways to get it and could not back out based on that fact).... .I like solid colors in black, white, and red...so that was the best black I could get. But any way...wheres the Corvette Bronze that looks like a washed out IOM

Go retro...where's the real nice light gold metallic??????

I asked the same question of Chevy customer service people on line, their response was that Aqua Blue was discontinued in favor of Synergy Green and it looked to be that way for the immediate future. I'm just the messenger...

I've been waiting on this 2012 model year. If they offer Nav system and spice the interior up I'll be buying one or I'm finding a used 2010 and making my own changes to the inside.

GM made a awesome car from looks to performance(z28 comming), you all are driving the best muscle cars on the road. Glad they're not falling behind Ford and Dodge with the changes the Mustang(Interior and new v6 and v8s) and Challenger(new v6 and v8s) have undergone.

If the next year has NAV, a redesigned console/interior and supercharger on a stock model like the 2ss/rs, I will give mine to the kid and buy a new one.
I bet your kid is hoping for new cup holders!

There is a big push to have rear view cameras mandatory by 2014

Very nice...that Corvette Bronze was a special order color in 1968 if my memory serves. Looks like us "old schoolers" are the only ones that like these colors. I guess there aren't any old-schoolers at GM making the color choices...too bad.

Just your big gubment mandating more BS to be installed on your new car. You get to pay for it whether you want it or not. Aholes.

I thought the first rule in drivers ED was to walk around your car and make sure kids aren't laying behind you.

Exciting news can't wait to hear more. Keeping an eye out for that suspension upgrade, and 45th anniversary package too.

I agree! I love the colours of the old Mopars they kind of became part and parcel with their Muscle Cars. To me RY, SG and even ABM make the lines of this car really stand out. Mind you Black is beautiful, they just look better in the shade.

Actually, I don't think the 'gubment' gives a flying **** about what color GM paints their cars as long as the money keeps coming in. So, for now, I'm going to say your comment is misinformed.

Yes, and rule #2 is to look in the direction you are traveling. So many people driving in reverse, and looking forward. Swivel that head! No wonder insurance is so expensive these days. I really hope backup cams don't become standard equipment. It's not necessary for us conscientious drivers.

He's talking about the comment made that rear view cameras appear to
be on the verge of being mandatory in all new vehicles.

Look at my post 118. I was responding to the mandatory backup cameras, not the F***king color of the car. Your response was UNINFORMED.
