FWD me a copy too! My dealership here said that I would be able to order around mid 2008. They also said to expect to pay "sticker or a little bit over". I told them I don't have to have the first one in town (though it would be nice to see it come off the truck). So I will check with other dealers around and if no one will let it go for sticker or less, then I will just have to wait another year and save up that much more money. :p

Here's the news after calling 8 dealers. 6 of the dealers said they have absolutely no clue when they will begin accepting orders because there has been no verified release of information regarding options and dates. Therefore, they will not accept orders at this time nor can they accurately speculate as to when they will be accepting them (6 dealers said this).

One dealer said it is not in stone, but they will possibly be accepting orders in March or April of next year.

The last dealer said he has information confirming that it will be made in 07 and released in 08 towards the end of the year possibly as an 09 model. I then asked how he got his information. He said through a GMinsidenews website. I asked how I could get this information. It is through a network not accessible to the public. SO, I asked another dealer about this site. He said he read it too and that everything was speculation only. AND, that at this time....NO ONE KNOWS.

Thanks for doing the legwork and sharing the info! Seems the dealers are as much in the dark about this as we all are

Meant to put my last post here due to more info from the dealership. But you can check it out on the price gouging thread...just put it up. And...you got it...the dealers all have no clue. All they get is a daily bulletin with upcoming information (some true but some speculation). It all depends upon who's reading it and who likes to spread the rumors! No one really knows for sure at this time.

I know what went on with my dads brand new saturn sky. he placed an order in early feb and got the car a couple months later. this was while the car was in preporduction he orderd the car. if it is the same way and pre production is in 07 then I have no doubts it will be out in 08. what part I don't want to even guess but I'm sure that it will be out in 08.

"early '08"...(shaking head "nope".)

It's a pretty sure bet it'll be late '08. I'll be visiting the dealer where I ordered the SS from next week to see what further information I can find out.

My guess is that we will know definitively when they show what will hopefully be the production protoype at SEMA. Can't wait to see it!

Who knows? Maybe they will do some changes to it in order to better represent a true production model. They have the blueprints to work off of. Keep showing the silver concept. In they meantime (10 months), they get the production version set up. That's plenty enough time to put together a vehicle that would better represent a true production model. If not, they're sure to release some new info on engines, options, etc.

Come on now, $anani! I will agree that yes, it is a bit early to get any strong info on the Camaro. GM will most likely continue giving us bits and pieces (hopefully some more at SEMA). However, it's NEVER too ealry to try and figure out when to get on "THE LIST" at your local dealer. Remember that saying that goes, "the early bird gets the worm"? Well, I know that I won't be stuck at the end of the line saying, "boy, I wish I woulda just tried to give'em a call" while everyone else is out and about in the new Camaro. I'm keeping in touch w/ my dealer(s) and when I get info, I'm letting ya'll in on it.
I am happy to hear this'll be your first new car and even better....it's gonna be the Camaro. Once you get into a Camaro, you get hooked. I could have bought a brand new car when my 02 Z28 was totalled. But, what did I do? I flew up to Iowa from San Antonio to pick up my SS. There's nothing like it. I just hope I can figure it out financially to where I can keep my SS w/out having to sell it to afford the new Camaro. Now that would be sweet.

Nope. I haven't been on a list but learned a little about it when I called my dealer. They aren't starting the list until they begin to get factual information. Pretty easy stuff. But, I wouldn't expect to get on any list until at least the beginning of next year. That's a guess, but I'd keep my ears open and call every once in a while to see what your dealer does. It won't be the same across the board. My dealer could begin accepting in April/May of next year while your dealer could begin a list in July. All I'm saying is if you want to get into it early, don't rely on them calling you. Do it yourself and keep up to date with them.

after detroit auto show of next year, January 07,we will know whats going to happen. i still am very much stuck on the fact that they are going to bring the car out in mid 08 as an 09 car like the z06. there is no way they are going to have the car star in the transformer movie and not intend on bring int out shortly after. thats not coming out till next july, they plan on bringing the car out in 09 thats a whole year and a half till it comes out. there is no way thats happeneing. i think its going to come out earlier than that. there going to surprise us about it. especially if they have banners and billboards up with the car on them and its not coming out for another 2 years? i dont think so too much advertisement will wear out the car just like the ssr so if they dont get it going soon people are going to start to turn the other way with it. right now is one of the highest points of the car, waiting for something to be finalized. its coming my friends....... its coming

Keep up the wishful thinking and it just might happen. I'll have my fingers crossed.

As per GM memebers, the camaro will be out 4th quarter 08 and will be titled a 2009 camaro. 6-8 months before that, they will start releasing dealerships allocations. This means you will be able to order a camaro from your dealer depending on it's allocations. The first year looks to be an order only basis.

New Camaro Released as '08

I know someone with a Black Convertible Z28, he declares it to be an '08 that got it from a dealer which is "in the family..." I think I am supposed to keep my mouth shut, but this is a pre-production release and it is in fact a DEALER CAR. I still am not sure why he has it or how, but it is in fact his, titled and registered... I might be able to post pictures here soon...

I just want to confirm that in fact, there are pre-production models running around so do not be surprised if you see one in your town. I, further, am not certain that I am supposed to know about this car, it was by accident that I saw it.

I think GM is going to release the car EARLY because of the Pressure from slow dealership sales on other models.

Confirmation on Production

I just checked after I posted literally 3 mins ago and my sources will not reveal even where the car is being manufactured but that in fact, the car is production ready.

As a side note: When I was at the NAIAS in Detroit, I met with the robotics metal fabricator engineer and she confirmed that the car, as of January was ready except for minor tail-light changes in order to satisfy NHTSA and that the rear-view mirrors on each door were to be qualified or enlarged for production, but that the car was ready other than that... so, watch out boys and girls, Z28s are going to be in your 'hood sooner than we thought.

I just checked with my two internal sources that have access and the last mention of anything Camaro was the letter that was spread around right after Transformers was released.......If they have it and it's really gonna happen in 4 months then they shouldn't mind giving you a copy to post up for the rest of us. This would also mean that the Camaro was going to be released before the G8. I don't think so. I'm not calling out a fellow Carolinian, but this just seems a little off. My dealer has been sending me any information that he gets his hands on and this is all news to him as well.

Ed Peper is even on video saying this past weekend that it wouldn't be out until late 2008, early 2009. If we were this close to dealership delivery, there would have been actual spy photos all over and orders would have been taken.

And for the guy whose neighbor has a friend at a dealer in the family with a 08 convertible Z28........without pics it's It all sounds great, but, what do you mean he couldn't confirm where the car is being built. Are they building them in undisclosed locations in hidden bunkers in New Mexico? No wait, that's where the keep the alien relics. The cars are being built, well, will be built in Oshawa when the assembly lines and tooling are up and running.

Now, this could be a big ploy by GM to sucker the competition into a sense of lull, but I kinda doubt it. If this car was going to be available in early 08, there would be so many people beating down the doors at dealerships. And didn't someone else say that first year was going to be on an order only basis.....how the hell are they going to only allow people to order 150,000 cars? They aren't. They would never get built.

I look forward to seeing some documentation to back all of these claims up.
