Here's the text from the article for everyone.

2009 Camaro Watch

The world first saw the Chevrolet Camaro concept car at
the 2006 Detroit Auto Show. It was an instant success,
enthusiasts from around the world asking when the production
version would be ready for sale. With innovations
and options never before seen in a pony car, the concept
car had everyone excited to see what the production version
would bring. Since that show, Chevrolet engineers
have been working tirelessly to deliver to you the greatest
Camaro ever produced.

The return of the Chevrolet Camaro may well be the most
anticipated automotive launch in the history of General
Motors. Like you, the engineers at GM Performance Parts
are excited to not only drive a Camaro but to modify the
Camaro for extreme street use, drag racing applications,
and road racing.

First, here is what we know about Camaro: You should
be able to buy your Camaro in early 2009. There will be
at least one V-6 and V-8 model offered. We know that the
convertible Camaro will be out later in the 2009 year. The
car will come with an advanced independent rear suspension
offering an incredible ride quality. Beyond that, we’ll
have to wait to tell you more.

As for our involvement, we can tell you that there are Camaro
enthusiasts from several divisions of General Motors
that are working on special editions, handling kits, engine
parts, accessories, and general hot rod parts that should
help you keep the wrenches flying for months after your
purchase.
We know that the Camaro is a special car—one
that people will be passionate about. And, we want to make
sure that the GM factory can provide you with just about
anything you want in the way of high performance parts.

One thing is for sure—the 2009 Chevrolet Camaro will be
one of the hottest cars to ever hit the streets and racetracks
of America. And, GM Performance Parts plans to be
right there with crate engines, bolt-on parts, and serious
engine upgrades to ensure that your Camaro performs to
your expectations.

the Camaro concept at a gathering to celebrate GM’s 2006 announcement
that it will build an all-new production version of
the Chevrolet Camaro. The sport coupe will be nearly identical to
this Camaro concept that was introduced at the North American
International Auto Show. Production will begin at the end of 2008
and the Camaro will go on sale in the first quarter of 2009.
Damn, I was hoping for more engine data.

I like what they had to say about all the available performance stuff. Just makes me that much more impatient.

Well, its nothing new, but it is reassuring to hear none the less.

I love looking throught gmpp crate engines, looking at the torque lines (not all have 'curve') and reading their possible applications for their engines, such as for the 572

Great find! Its good to know that they are eager to get their hands on one. Their parts dont void any warranty and actually come with a warranty, right?

^From what I understand, it doesn't void the warranty. I believe you can order your car w/ special GM performance parts, take delivery from the factory, and have it all under warranty. It only makes sense to do it that way for GM. They know that aftermarket is a big business. Why not get in it now, make chingos of dollars, and make sure it's done right from the beginning. If SLP were installing special aftermarket exhuast kits on the SS's back in the day, then why can't GMPP do the same?

Yep...I bet it'll happen...all w/ a warranty.

That's one good reason to give it a year or so before I buy. Then I can see what GMPP has to offer and get the car with everything I want... hmmmm.

And under warranty! Thanks the ticket!

DGthe3 summed it up for me - not new, but reassuring. And agreed about waiting to buy. I'm glad things are looking like end of 2009 or early 2010 for my purchase.

Yeah, I think you can get 500+ horse out of a Mustang through Ford. I believe Roush still has Ford's warranty through their Stage III S/C package.

The Camaro's performance future certainly looks bright

That's why the GMPP will be more expensive than the aftermarket... some of that money goes into a warranty $ pool that they use to cover any failures. But with the resources of GM behind it, I DOUBT you'd see any... the engineers know what their doing.

And this is generally awesome news!
