The Camaro Team wants to update you on Imperial Blue Metallic and the availability issue surrounding that color on the ZL1 and other Camaros --

Because Camaro shares a common body and paint shop with several other vehicle lines at Oshawa, we must abide by decisions that affect more than just Camaro - and thus Imperial Blue Metallic will be discontinued very shortly. Offering it for only a week or so on the ZL1 is not practical as it would require paint re-validation for ZL1-unique components such as bumper fascias. Crystal Red Tintcoat will be available to order shortly.

We will have further information as to order cut-off dates for LS, LT, and SS models in Imperial Blue Metallic very shortly.

I have inside knowledge (through my dealership who has connections to Camaro Racing Division) that the LT/SS Imperial blue will last for orders through January. After that, sometime in February, it will disappear and IBM orders will be rejected.

It will be replaced by a light (slate blueish) blue.

Your source is incorrect.

because there are other car lines built at Oshawa - there are only so many paint lines available.

Remember - paints change from year to year......and that's all I can say at this point.

I do not know who you are referring to - "GM of the Camaro Name" isn't a title we have at GM --

If you would like to PM me with the name - I'll be happy to explain.

Have we gotten an answer to this question? Normally we get a replacement color whenever something is cancelled...

So per Scott's post we will likely see a new color palette (however small) in 2013 for the ZL1 and probably the entire camaro lineup. Somebody posted there are two blacks...but I thought there was only 1 shade of black?

I hope ZL1 comes out in that Light Blue that the Corvette has, that would look pretty clean with the black wheels I think!

There is only one black unless you get the 45th anniversary edition.

Fbodfather did not mention anything about the future color palette...

Thanks for the info Scott.

I know I frustrate my dealer when I don't believe what they're telling me but now I know it's true. I hope I'm not speaking alone when I say I appreciate you being the messenger of both good and bad news even though it's tough.

I agree, it is horrid.

I know fans of a true blue probably aren't a fan of Super Sonic Blue, but I think it would look killer on a ZL1. Then again, I ordered AGM, so I like the gray influence in this shade of blue. The black features of the ZL1 combined with this color = sick.



Even with that said, I really hope they offer a true blue for enthusiasts that have been begging for that color.
