Thumbs up Camaro engineering and design is wrapping up! Entering production phase.

Quote:
The most recent project, following the completion of the VE Commodore, was the development of the Chevrolet Camaro to be built in Canada.

Mr Mooney said that as the engineering development for the Camaro winds down, "our next-generation project won’t be far away".

"The Camaro project is now slowing down because they are now getting into production. All the heavy engineering work is being done as we speak. The design work is pretty much done," he said.

Well, If that's true, then I think we can start expecting some more info Very soon, like, within months!

I heard somewhere that there'll be something on the production version by Christmas (December)... Hearsay, but if they really are starting to organise production, then maybe not too much hearsay?

I have a good feeling about January....very good feeling. That'll be three years in a row they've had something Camaro at NAIAS. Just think about it. Two years from the day the bring out the first concept model. A year and a half to get a mock production model built. I bet they show the production model. After all, we've heard Bob Lutz say he's seen the production model and he couldn't tell the difference between the two (concept vs. production).

I agree with you Tag. I think we'll see it in Jan. Not soon enough for me, but at least it's something to look forward to.

Dang, that is way !!!!!!

I just wish the Maro wasn't gonna be a year behind the Challenger.

Here's hoping that the General is keeping a BIG secret from us, and the production starts in line with the Dodge.

But I'm not betting the farm on it!!:(

Regards to ALL!!

Mike

I'm betting that towards the end of this year we'll get "rumors" that there'll be a production model at NAIAS, which'll amp up the attendance to the show. Then...it WILL be there, and everybody will cheer, and laugh, and cry again, just like in 2006.
