There is no alternate blue that will be offered in 2012.

SO glad I got mine I hate to see it go, but at least ours are more rare now...
Thanks for the fbodfather quote - hadn't seen it. This guy can write!

BRILLIANT IDEA: For those who are unhappy with color choices - have Oshawa run a batch of Camraos in PRIMER - the unhappy campers can paint it any color they adore.

that gold actually looks pretty good in my opinion. never been a big fan of blue cars so it doesnt hurt my feelings at all to see it go.

GM will always ROTATE the colors. It sounds to me like some new "fresh" tones are on the way for 2013. I bet they are getting rid of the JUJYFRUIT palette with a "slightly" more mature approach for a maturing brand.

Seriously though, I love IBM just as much as the next guy, but you didn't say its impossible to get an IBM ever again. Its going to be discontinued! Know what else will in a few years? the current camaro... sheesh!

I like color so one less choice is a bummer. Hope to see aqua blue metalic return and synergy green metalic. Not likely though.

I really wanted ABM but they discontinued right before I got my IBM.

I get compliments on my car's color EVERY DAY. Sometimes it looks blue, sometimes it looks black, sometimes it looks purple, sometimes it looks like a bass boat with all the flakes in the paint. The only way Chevy can make up for losing blue, is to give the Camaro the Jetstream Blue from the Vette.....!!!

Sad to see this beautiful color go. Glad I bought one. However, that being said IBM is not as electrifying as it should be for a car whose shape is electrifying to look at. Scott you guys need to go with a blue that just stops you in your tracks the moment you see it.

Something along these lines:

For a dark conservative blue something like 534:

Views: 377
Size:  44.3 KB

For a lighter somewhat conservative blue something like 522:
Name:  522.jpg
Views: 385
Size:  46.9 KB

But my personal favorite is heartstopping mountain lake 566 blue:
Name:  566.jpg
Views: 800
Size:  47.0 KB

You put Camaros in 566 blue in dealer showrooms under halogen lights and that color will sell.

Just some ideas for ya.

So you'd be happy with just Synergy Green, no other colors?
