why cant they keep the name?
I love the camaro taking on new areas, but changing the name is stupid to me.
Do we change the name of import cars here for lambos or anything?
I know the fairladyz is the 350 here but I dont know, not liking the name change

They didn't change the name, 科迈罗 is just the Chinese name for it (in Chinese).

I had a Fairlady Z in Japan! It was the 280Z here in the States back then ('90). Man, 120KPH seemed so fast on those tiny 2-lane roads!

With the automation of the Camaro plants, they can build them over there and make a killing.

Think of how many americans buy a Lamborghini or Ferrari? They are probably cheaper in Italy than they are here. So lets make some extra money on the Chinese

So, we often refer to mods that look over the top as "RICE", so do you think in the China Camaro market, when they see American Camaros with over the top mods as "HOT DOGed"
