Beating a dead horse III Gm needs 20k orders for blue!

Going out on a limb here.. IF WE can get GM 20k orders for ZL1
we can have our BLUE or ABM equivalent back. It has to start somewhere folks, might as well start here. It is a matter of numbers.
Numbers = $$$$ for GM. They need cold hard numbers here folks. People actually serious about buying CAMARO in blue, and not just a "I want a blue camaro," or "I WISH I had a blue camaro," or "My brother drives a blue camaro and is cool" NO. They need something to go by as far as real numbers here.
I would be the first to give up my planned IOM Camaro for a BRIGHT Blue Camaro. The name of the color is not important. Call it 82 corvette blue, 86 IROC Z blue, BRIGHT BLUE METALLIC, AQUA BLUE METALLIC, STRYKER BLUE METALLIC. The name of the blue is not important here. What is important is showing GM you are willing to take a step of "FAITH" and let GM know you will BUY A BLUE CAMARO IF THEY OFFER IT. Make sense?
Now. Who on here is willing to BUY a BLUE Camaro?
We need a show of hands here.

I'll go out on a limb here and GUESS that the replacement for Cyber Grey (which had tiny blue specks in it) will be the Dark Titanium from their Silverados.

Fbodfather said it will be another member of the "gray" family and will be "richer." That would seem to me a prefect fit.

I honestly wouldn't expect any other blue besides IBM this year.

That said, I think their Light Blue Granite Metallic would be spectacular on ZL1.



Good luck, man. Kudos for screaming out what you want from the rooftops.

flashy car needs flashy colour. Lemans/Jetstream/Arrival...Blue needs to make an apperence.
Obviously there is ALOT of interest for a lighter shade of blue. the dark colours dont suit the camaro asmuch as the bright metallic colours...

Unfortunately the numbers do not support this..... Hence ABM being axed! Blue seems to be one of those colors that everyone likes but nobody wants as their own.

2010 Numbers-
- Aqua Blue Metallic (2,584 units) — 4.96%
- Summit White (2,655 units) — 5.10%
- Imperial Blue Metallic (2,702 units) — 5.19%
- Red Jewel Tintcoat (3,860 units) — 7.41%
- Cyber Gray Metallic (3,881 units) — 7.45%
- Rally Yellow (5,490 units) — 10.54%
- Victory Red (5,971 units) — 11.46%
- Silver Ice Metallic (6,156 units) — 11.82%
- Inferno Orange Metallic (6,289 units) — 12.08%
- Black (12,494 units) — 23.99%

Good post. Here lies the problem. You can't really blame gm.
We wanted to know "why" and now we know. The only way to
Get gm to change this is the public has to do they're part and past
numbers reflect this. This is the very reason for the thread is to give
Camaro fans a chance to change the numbers.

If you want a light or medium blue, thats fine. But why would you post this in the ZL1 section?

I'd honestly order a new metallic blue without hesitation, but that would be contingent on what type of blue they offer.

I'd be for a blue that looks unmistakably blue in almost all lighting conditions. A blue that's vibrant in the sunshine but is also dark enough to provide depth. A blue that is a pure blue like the bluest ocean and doesn't appear as a mix of colors such as teal or purple in certain conditions.

Give me a medium blue like that and I'm in.

He wants his ZL1 in Blue, but I see what you are getting at.
Move it to the general forum for more exposure to a wider base?

Hmm you would think with those numbers summit white would have been
axed as well but its still one of the colors still being offered.

Dark blue has always been my favorite color. I wouldn't have bought my Camaro if it didn't come in IBM. It was a dealbreaker. Even before I got it, I was actively looking for a LeMans Blue C6 Corvette. I won't even consider a ZL1 unless they re-release IBM.

I wouldn't have a problem with them doing a short special run blue, kind of like the synergy green. I just don't want to pay extra for a whole special edition with colored stitching and stuff. Hope they are working on more colors than just the ones we've heard about. A lack of a bright metallic blue is really disappointing.

Somewhat off topic, but I hope that they offer a stitching color besides red on the suede interior option. Saw the blue stitching on a Z06 Carbon today, it was Supersonic blue with the suede interior and blue stitching. Drop dead gorgeous!

And for the record, I would totally rock a Supersonic Blue ZL1!!!!

I'm also wondering what happened to the red and yellow interior accent packages that you were supposed to be able to get at dealerships. They might offer it, but I haven't seen it.

I read it, and read it, and read it again and I still couldn't figure out where you are coming from, or what exactly you're after.

What does a demand of 20k ZL1s have to do with the colour blue? If you are trying to build a business case for blue, why handicap yourself by making it limited to a low volume model within the Camaro lineup?
