Can you give us a possible timeframe??

Such as.......in time for the beginning of ZL1 production in 2012?? I'm ESPECIALLY curious about the CGM "replacement" (Supersonic Blue perhaps?).

...and I traded away CGM #43. I'm sure the replacement will also end up being my favorite color again...

That's what's great about the metallics....... from a few feet away it looks like a standard color. Up close you see the shizznit, don't hate cause you don't have one lol. Jk you are entitled to your opinion...... but your opinion sucks lol

I am surprised that GM hasn't offered Hugger Orange on the 5th gen. I love IOM but if they offered Hugger, I would have bought it in a hearbeat. I know it wasn't a big seller on the 4th gen in '99 but I didn't think it looked good on the 4th gen either. It would look killer on the 5th gen.

I don't 'hate'. Whatever color someone chooses is up to them. There's colors that i like, but i personally wouldn't choose for myself. CGM just doesn't 'pop' when i see it in person. If you like yours, more power to you.

Like I said before, I just think the current GM color pallet is boring accross the board. I'm obviously not the only one that thinks this way, otherwise we wouldn't be having all these threads popping up.

Like always, I will wait and see what happens, but right now I am upset at the current choices in colors.

I agree. I really like it under certain conditions, but sometimes it looks kind of blah. If it was a shade or two darker with more depth and shine, it would be sweet!

I just saw an Audi on the road today with a grey similar to what I described and it looked awesome!

we are working on paint validation - so I would hope by 4th quarter - but we won't release it until we're comfortable with the appearance.........

The CGM replacement will be another member of the gray family......

Is it really that big a deal? I think the 5th gen Camaro is dead sexy no matter the colour...well, pink would suck, but you get my point.

Flaming Pink Metallic (FPM) would really pop.

I agree with you about the car whole heartedly Nick...and I honestly admit if "whatever" color was the only one I could get on a ZL1 I would buy it with no complaint. I really do not know what color I will settle on, the jury is still out on the options...it's gonna be a tough call for me because I have never been able to order a new Camaro and have a paint color option. The only new one I bought previously was a 35th SS and it was rally red, the only color it came in, but that was a hot color I felt.

Can't wait to see it

This will be a long 5 months waiting on the release of the new paint (hopefully) and the release of the ZL1's final HP/TQ numbers and price.

If patience is a virtue, well, I guess I'm not very virtuous!
