Post Chevy Camaro is heading to Asia (Japan)!

Great to see this news. That means there's now plans to sell the Camaro in Europe and Asia! Camaro going to help GM restore its image both in US and abroad

Japanese unit of General Motors has unveiled an all-new Chevrolet Camaro with which it seeks to make a fresh start from bankruptcy filing with the resurrection of a sport coupe long-awaited by Japanese fans of American muscle cars.


The GM unit plans to deliver the fifth-generation Camaro in Japan around November in the wake of strong sales of the sports car since its May debut in the United States.


With its GM lineup likely to be halved with the sale of the Saab and Hummer brands under restructuring following its filing for Chapter 11 protection on June 1, GMAPJ President Rick Brown said that the new Camaro under the Chevrolet brand along with the remaining Cadillac will play a key role for the Japanese unit.


"GM Japan will offer a product lineup that will further satisfy the expectations for lovers of American cars," Brown said.


The Camaro LT/RS with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine will be sold for around 4.3 million yen while the Camaro SS/RS with a 6.2-liter V-8 engine will be sold for about 5.35 million yen.


The Camaro has sold over 20,000 units in Japan from its debut in 1967 to 2002, when production of the fourth-generation model was scrapped.
GM Japan, which began taking orders for the new Camaro from June 11, has already received orders for around 100 units on the back of booming demand in the United States.

This will be an excellent market for GM, especially China! Will GM build those Camaros abroad or (hopefully) add a second factory here in North America (hopefully in the US)?

I hope they bring up at least one more factory in the US to build the camaros. One factory to supply the world will not be enough to keep the supply high.

If they start building them in the USA again I will be the first in line to trade in my Canadian 2SS/RS on a new USA built one. Maybe a convertible? Or maybe they only make the Z28 here to give us a little swagger back.

No offence to the Canadians, mine is well built. Honorable mention to the Australians also.

I just really wanted to buy as much of a USA made car as possible but dang it this Camaro was just too sweet to pass up so I just had to buy it even knowing it was designed by a South Korean, based on an Australian design and manufactured in Canada. Ug what happened to us in the USA we created and use to rule the Muscle cars. It almost seemed as if GM went out of their way to avoid having the Camaro have any connection to USA.
