Those 2014 Mustangs are the last of the best looking.....scoop them up now before the fusion coupe hits the streets with thousands of justin biebers driving them. Poor dodge lol.

Don't know but they haven't started production yet.

I know that the rumor was that they were going to be releasing some 2015 Mustangs as a "2014.5" model year which were going to be collectors. If that's the case, I would imagine they would be hitting the show rooms sometime this summer.

I'm sure Ford includes fleet sales in their numbers (as do most manufacturers to bloat their numbers); the question is how much (if any) of the Camaro sales numbers is fleet sales?

Must be where those Challenger sales went.
At least the Camaro sales were up 1% and not down. Anytime your sales compared to yourself are up then you are still doing good.

Still strong sales even with the crappy weather. Amazing to think there are now over 400,000 Camaros running around now.

Every manufacturer includes fleet sales. GM is at 25.1% fleet.

And you better believe Camaro has a fleet percentage.

Your Camaro is cool. Those wheels really work with the white body. I am not sure what engine/trans you have but a cold air kit with SCT
custom tune will put a smile on your face. Factory tunes are dumbed down to meet NHTSB requiements to certify the vehicle. They usually involve
dampening the throttle response and top end limits. A custom tune deletes all of that and you unlock what you paid for. V6 or V8 both benefit by custom tune.
If you have a manual trans go for a short throw shifter. If you have an automatic look at the TCI street fighter ratchet shifter with reverse lock out
and a B&M shift kit in the trans. Stop there. That is enough. You never want to take a car too far from the factory design. Go drive your car, it will feel like a different vehicle and you will like it. If you buy at the right times these mods are about $1600 and figure $300 for the B&M shift kit install. Trans shop only,
unless you really know what you are doing. If you skip an item it would be the B&M shift kit. These work, but you may not like the head snapping, tire chirping shifts on hard launches. If you are happy with your auto trans responding through the gears leave it alone.

Thank you for the compliment on the car! It really looks better in person and the wheels being white really made me like the wheel design. Wow! Nice! Thank you for all of the info! I will definitely use the information that you gave me . I definitely won't touch any mechanical stuff ! So shop it is!

New Camaro sneak peek?

I found this on the CNN/Autos site. It has been my understanding that
accurate prototypes of new models need be on wheels two years before production.
It takes that long to build the tooling, fixtures, stamping dies, and transfer lines.
This could therefore approximate the next Camaro. Looks very Chevrolet, and
very Camaro. Appears to increase rear/side vision.

That front end keeps popping up. I won't be suprised to see the SS 4-door lower grill added with some 2nd gen styling. The big lower grill seems almost like a Chevy corporate theme... even the Malibu has it now.

Looking at the Camaro above, with #96 on side, gives me de ja vu to stuff Q and I spotted earlier. There are some camaro design influences in the 15 mustang. That #96 has definite mustang design influences: the Shelby grill center section, the hood scoop, the side window frame, the rear window scoop, the spoiler, and the side pipes. The way this going we will all be driving the same car. Wow, an Eleanor Camaro!

I believe you. It looks scaled wider than higher. I think the front end, while very Chevrolet, is too much Malibu to be a Camaro.
