Cool Ford: Yes, Camaro will outsell Mustang this year

http://www.autoblog.com/2010/12/23/f...ang-this-year/

Ford admitting the Camaro will outsell the Mustang this year

Quote:
It's true. For the first time since 1985, the Chevrolet Camaro will outsell the Ford Mustang in 2010. Besides giving the Bowtie Boys something to crow about, it also makes us genuinely intrigued to watch how 2011 unfolds, considering that Chevy plans to unleash its convertible and Z28 Camaro editions.

Somewhat surprisingly, Ford doesn't seem too bothered. According to Ford sales analyst George Pipas, "If that was important, we wouldn't have taken a shift off at Flat Rock," which is where the plant that assembles the Mustang is located. That's a somewhat dubious statement, since building too many vehicles in one model year only leads to problems for the next... In any case, this is a trend worth monitoring.

That video encompasses what every Mustang owner asks themselves when they see a Camaro on the road.

Im not trying to defend GM and bash Ford, but the only reason Ford survived is because they mortgaged every single asset that they own to raise money to survive. Analysts agree that even though GM went through bankruptcy it is much healthier financially than Ford.

I think it's great news for GM ,securing their finacial position. But I bet everyone on here likes the relative exclusivity of their Camaro at the moment; it's why I'm getting one. There is a risk that in five years time, you'll walk down the street and think.."oh there's yet another 5th gen"..the way you do S197 Mustangs now.

This is great news for GM. It demonstrates that the hard work and years of planning were worth GM's time because enthusiasts and average buyers alike cannot resist this car. It seemed like this day would never come. Keep up the good work, GM.

It is great to see GM climbing back. I have owned a 66 Mustang, 72 Pinto, 93 Tauris SHO. Also have had a 74 Opel, 94 Camaro, 99 Grand Prix GTP and a 10 Camaro SS.

I will stick with GM these cars have been better than the Fords in the long run for me. The GTP was the only real bad GM car I ever had.

Can anyone explain why it's so important if Camaro outsells Mustang by a few cars? Beyond simple bragging rights, who cares.

Stock holders...
Current Camaro owners looking to sell...
GM/Chevy dealership employees...
Assembly line part suppliers...
Aftermarket manufacturers...

From an aftermarket stand point, it makes it easier for vendors to invest time and money into new products when a vehicle continues to sell well.

Well sure it is. I would be too if I could get a judge to tear up my mortgage and let me keep my house.

Looks like GM will be resurrected on the stock market after all. The SEC has approved GM’s IPO bid, which means that soon, GM will be a publicly traded company again. GM targets a share price between $26 and $29, and it will offer 365 million shares of common stock and 60 million shares of Series B mandatory convertible junior preferred stock with a value of $50 per share (whatever that means). If all goes according to GM’s plan, they could raise $15 billion on the IPO.
