Won't happen w/ the Camaro. GM needs to sell too many for it to be profitable. If the dealers can't sell them because they mark up their price, GM will hurty badly. If GM hurts, the dealers are going to get it bad from GM. Won't happen. I can see dealers trying to mark up the first few they sell, but as far as the rest, it's all up to us. If we won't buy them at what dealers really want, they won't sell and make money. If they won't make money, what's the point??? They will eventually compromise!

Right. One thing you have to remember on the GT500 is this, Ford is only producing 8000 to 10000 I can't remember the exact number, but I know it is under 10000. That’s why they are asking so much. The thing is, people are paying that much for them… I could see this happening to a SS ZL1. I hope not because that is want I want to order!!!

OK, just got off the phone w/ another dealer. He said that GM wants to sell 100,000+ per year, as we know. He predicts that GM will make 2/3rds of these V-6's so that GM can make this a worthy cause. The other will be Z-28's and SS models. Remember, this is what HE preidicts. He said no one except for GM knows for sure. But, as far as MSRP goes....

He said that it all depends upon how many SS models are made and how many each dealership gets per shipment. The fewer each dealership gets, the more likely they are to mark up their price above MSRP. He gave me the example of the Z06 at their dealership. Right now, they have 10 people on a waiting list to get them. He said this was a higher number than other dealers because the owner of his dealership believes that if GM puts a price in stone on their vehicles, that the dealers should stick to this. This is why they get more business. It just takes longer for this dealer to sell the Z06's. He said he's heard of the GT500's going for as much as $20K above sticker (as we've seen on a previous post). He said they won't sell any SS's over sticker price, but it will take a lot of time to sell due to a smaller amount sent to that specific dealer.

In other words, try to special order your new Camaro from a dealer you know will sell to you at MSRP. If you are just going to go off of price and don't care about color or options, you are going to get your Camaro a hell of a lot quicker than everyone else.

I e-mailed every dealer within 100 miles of me (about 15 dealerships) and have gotten back response from 12 of them plus calls from 2 of them. All have said the same thing, we will keep your name/number/e-mail and let you know something when we know.

Now as I was typing this message one dealer that I spoke with several times called just to tell me that he heard first quarter of 2008 for release date is what he found out just today, (he is a sales manager). He stated that all the flack about the late release date has Chevy wanting this car out sooner and it's top priority. We will see how true this is, let's hope so!

Did you ask him where he heard this from? All eight dealers I spoke with all stated that no one knows. One dealer I spoke to stated she will be buying a new Camaro as well. She said if anyone were to know, it would be her...BECAUSE she works at a Chevy dealer and has access to all their info. This is HER JOB. If anyone were to know, I wouldn't doubt it would be her!

I did ask him, he never answered and said I would be able to find out on my own very soon. He is a sales manager at the local Chevy dealer that knew all about the current info about the Camaro, so take it with a grain of salt, but I hope he is correct....

Yeah...I bet he really doesn't know but wants to look good. I only spoke to sales managers today and all stated the same. I bet this guy wants to try to make you happy so that you'll think of him and his dealership when you are ready to buy...and I hope it comes out early too. I'm not counting on anything, though.

I told him I wouldn't pay over msrp, as long as he keeps his word on that I have no problems buying from him whenever it comes out.

HA! Production will be very limited....sure. Let's see...100,000 plus per year? ...... unless they make only a quarter of those Z28's and SS's. Now, that would be somewhat limited for a top end model. I think the majority of us out there are going to want the top model depending on price, insurance, gas prices, etc. I pray there is enough to go around. There should be. It's just going to be a waiting game.

Maybe the dealer I spoke with isn't full of BS on a early release date:

I could see that happening. It's just like now. It's 2006, but the dealers are already getting 2007 models. That could very well happen w/ this one too. I don't see why they can't push up the date. They said themselves that if they are pushed enough, they can put off other projects to speed others up. We'll see...it could happen, for sure.

I see the camaro in a stalemate idea. The new camaro might come out fall of 08 , but not before . the reason is simple, the gm line-up for next year has to be strong enough to carry this car to us and the car is not even in production yet. we might get to see the real look and feel for it in 07 but not sooner.GM has a tendency to over do their gumph and give big news that falls short of thier promise. ( in 04 gm said : the new 06 monte carlo ss was supposed to be rear wheel drive and a supercharged model was supposed to be offered too)


remember also the economy is not that strong right now and the price of gas might go up to $4.00 a gallon soon if the oil companies have anything to do with it.

I also don't see the economy getting any better anytime soon (remember in 2010 president is out and we are still in a big war situation .

I see it coming out early, but only a few months, fall of 08' sounds about right. Just think they have to get all the tooling and assembly line ready so maybe a few months early!
