Fifth-gen Camaro Approaches 500,000 U.S. Sales. What will SIX do? 6th gen teaser

Friday, March 13, 2015, 8 a.m. EST

Fifth-gen Camaro Approaches 500,000 U.S. Sales
Production milestone caps five years as America’s best-selling performance car

DETROIT
– Talk about a big family: Chevrolet expects to deliver the 500,000th fifth-generation Camaro in the United States this month.

The fifth-generation Camaro has been a runaway success for Chevrolet since it went on sale in August 2009. Camaro sales passed Mustang in 2010, to become America’s best-selling performance car – a title Camaro has retained for five consecutive years. In the process, the Camaro has helped bring new buyers to Chevrolet – with 63 percent of retail buyers new to GM.

“The fifth-generation Camaro has clearly resonated with both long-time Camaro fans, and first time performance-car buyers,” said Todd Christensen, Camaro marketing manager. “That sets the bar high for the next chapter of the car’s history.”

Remarkably, the Camaro continues to gain momentum, even as the fifth-generation Camaro nears the end of production this year. In 2014, Camaro total sales increased 7.1 percent for its second-best year of sales since its introduction. For the first two months of 2015, total sales are up 3.6 percent over 2014:

In its final year for the fifth generation, the 2015 Camaro lineup offers a broad range of models that balance style, performance and efficiency:
• The 323-horsepower V-6-powered LS coupe and LT coupe and convertible – including the 2LS with an EPA-rated 30 mpg on the highway
• The Camaro SS coupe and convertible, with a 6.2L V-8 delivering up to 426 horsepower
• The road-racing-inspired Camaro 1LE performance package with unique gearing, suspension tuning and tires that make the model capable of more than 1 g of lateral acceleration
• The 580-horsepower supercharged Camaro ZL1 coupe and convertible – the most powerful Camaro in history
• The track-capable Camaro Z/28 (coupe only), which was named Motor Trend’s 2014 Best Driver’s Car – the first American-brand car to receive the award.

Love the Z/28!

I'm not sure about the built count!!
Mine was made in the first working week of January of 2010, on the 18th and I have number 83817.
How can it be that they've made 61,648 in 2009 and a week later they're at 83,817?
Perhaps the discrepancy is all those that didn't past QA? wow...20K ? ishhh...
What else is plausible?

Also, for all you BLUE car lovers, notice how they used RED text for the RED 5th gen car, and BLUE text for the 6th gen? could be something...

Cool video! When the 6th Gen Camaro is available, you can bet that we will have a top notch CAI available for it just like we have since the 5th Gen came out!
