not really the same. more people get foreign languages tatto'd on their body then english. And i've seen a few camaro tattoo's. both the word and car. lol

i've always wondered why people not from japan/china/korea get that writing on their body. unless they have some kind of connection with their culture, it doesn't make much sense. but a lot of people do it.

Its because of China's insane Import taxes. IMVHO America should be doing the same thing, its a big reason our imports far out wiegh our exports. Also generaly speaking when you by foriegn the money goes over seas compared to buying domestic. If America had the same Taxes domestic products sales would shoot through the roof.

For anyone who has travelled extensively in China, you will know how completely chaotic driving is there. But the one bright side is that there is almost no traffic enforcement in China and millions of miles of paved roads.

Driving the highways of China is like running a Nascar race. You're nose to tail with the guy in front of you and as soon as you get a fender's length ahead, you can go ahead and cut in. I've had hired drivers pass a slow moving dump truck with his car's hood about 2 feet under the dump truck's rear overhang! YIKES!

I look forward to leading a certain other company in sales and seeing what they do with them, how they mod them, what they get out of them (HP), and if they rave over them as much as we do. ..

Not sure what the Camaro might cost in China but in Brasil it's around 170's. I'm told.

GM release:
RMB 500k? Man....

That's close to $80k here... for a V6? Way too much, for me it is! Not to those CHINAman cousins over there..... Good for GM, & the dealers over there... I think also good for the people over there, to have a taste on American Muscle I guess.

I wouldn't say no enforcement, maybe you're not in the city, every traffic light's got a camera!

There is no way the Chinese will drive a camaro. If it ain't Japanese, they ain't buying it. I've worked with Chinese folks in engineering for the last 15 years and every single one drives a Honda or Toyota. They think American cars are junk.

Well, the V8 Camaro SS have been selling for as much as 1.3 million RMB, and V6 used to cost about 700K RMB. (The unofficial imported ones in China)

There are tons of really nice cars like M3, 911, GT-Rs in major cities like Beijing and Shanghai, while the Camaro is not as nice as the cars I mentioned(let's face it, Camaro is a great car but it's not the same class like cars like M3, 911, and GT-R), it's a lot more rare and really stands out. Some of the rich people in China will pay the extra bucks to get a nice car that's a little more rare. And money is not an issue to a lot of them.

Plus, the 'Transformers' effect will also boost Camaro's recognition in China. so if GM is smart, they should release a special edition Camaro in China that's the exact same as the Transformers 3 Bumble Bee and charge a 25-30% premium for it, and people will buy it.

Did you know GM sold more cars in China last year than in the USA?

Unfortunately the Chinese have something we have very little of, import tariffs. They can export as many cars here as Walmart can sell, but a Camaro in China would cost about a trillion dollars.

Well most Chinese engineering folks I have seen have a master or PhD, live a very modest life, they buy cars that are not expensive, good mileage, and low repair cost, and they save a good percentage of their income into the bank. IMO these Chinese people are not the targeted buyer of any premium cars, because they don't care that much about their car. On the other hand there are Chinese business owners and restaurant owners who really care about their 'status' and spend big money on Mercedes, BMW, and other luxury items.

Most wealth people in China care a lot about their status and how they look in front of other people, they want expensive, exotic cars, designer cloths, and other things that can show their status. GM is targeting these rich Chinese people with the Camaro in China, and it will be priced and equipped accordingly. Most premium options like leather seats and stuff are probably going to be standard equipment when the Camaro goes to China, just like how most Hondas and Buicks have standard leather seats there.
