Stupid Salesman

I went to a dealership this weekend and we was talking about a new silverado and then we started talking about the new camaro. We was talking and out of no where he said that they are going to start out at 40,000 i said 40,000 I'm thinking more about 30,000 then he said that the aren't going to be mass produced like in 69. I should have set him straight but i didn't and say then why did bob lutz say that they are planning on selling 150,000 a year isn't that mass produced. So i asked him if he was talking just for the first year and he said no what an idiot.

There is ALOT of misinformation out there.

I feel at this point, I probably know ALOT more than the dealer.

If I worked at a dealer, I'd sell the hell out of Camaros. Misinformation is right on the nose, there. But, we know a whole lot more them at this point...including those salesmen who are with us here on the boards. Obviously, that guy doesn't know what he's talking about. Personally, I'd let him in on a pointer or two....mmmmk...more like three and four.

My dealer said something along the same lines--that they are going to be produced in a limited number, therefore, the dealers around my area are only going to get 2-3 Camaros a piece!!!

Please someone tell me that's wrong...I know what Lutz said about 150,000 target...but I'm doubting

They will not produce camaro in limited number or they wouldnt have put 2 different V6 motors in it. Hell if they were gonna make em in limited production I doubt they would even have a base V-8. This is just stupid information coming from stupid people. Only way this would even be close to credible is if they have misinterpreted correct information and are only talking about the first quarter.

Lol.... they will not produce the Camaro in a limited number becasue they have already ublically stated that they intend to sell 100,000 of them a year! Unless "limited" is relative term, i don't think 100,000 counts as limited.

What an idiot.

Either this guy was just a dolt. and i would have asked him where he got his information, and if he plans to still be selling cars next year when the car actually comes out.

OR he was puffing to the guy to get more money out of a car he miiiight not be able to get.. adn in small areas they will be hard to get for dealers that don't sell crap anyway. especially the top of the line models will be hard to get.

Well I wouldn't consider Western New York a small area. There are at least 3 Chevrolet Dealers within 10 miles of me....

i was looking at a sports car when i was talking to him for my papaw and that's what he said. He could have just told me that so i would buy a sports car now but he still probably thinks that. I told him if they start out at 40,000 they wont be to many sold then.

I was getting ready to pull out the dictionary and figure out what the heck that was....uh....what's ublically......hmmmm.....that's a new word for me!

We've already heard that GM is hoping to sell 100,000 in the first year. I'm thinking they are hoping to have enough buyers to sell 100,000. I can easily see GM stepping it up and working round the clock to mass produce up to 150K because they are selling like hot cakes. I can't see GM sitting back and not making more too keep up with the demand. If people want it, they will get it. GM will have to keep up and I think they are prepared....or will be.

I am not usually the kind of person that will go out of my way to think up a word that makes me appear smarter than others, so usually if you read my posts and see something like that, it is a typo. I have a tendancy to think faster than i type, so my fingers are always trying to catch up...sometimes they take short cuts by leaving out letters.

Maybe the dealer was refering to Chevy rolling out the loaded, top-of-the-line models first: $32K - $35K. Then add on any intended dealer mark-up and you could be looking at close to $40K. I can see the most powerful and expensive models being released first, then the cheaper V6s. The Mustang GT was selling 80% of the Mustang models in 2005. When the factory finally caught up with demand for the GT, they mixed in more V6 models to maintain the volume of sales they wanted.
No the salesman said they are going to start out at 40,000.

The best idea we have on pricing is to look at the Mustang and guess it'll be close. That was from GM. They said it would be "priced to compete with the Mustang." I think the Z28 and SS will be comparable to the GT...with one or the other being in the same price range and the other (depending on upgrades) a few grand more.

This is craptactular!

I have called like 6 dealers in Arizona and only ONE is selling it at MSRP. That place is called Courtesy Chevrolet. Hell, one place (Thorobred Chevrolet) is selling it at $10,000 over MSRP. WTF? Whats wrong with these greedy bastards? If more dealers are like that, I fear for GM's numbers.

I know man. It is quite ridiculous. I mean seriously, $10,000? Might as well get a corvette for that friggen price. Who is going to buy a V6 Camaro for 35k? People will buy the Mustang GT for that amount. Retarded dealers.

I doubt they will markup the V6s just like dealers didn't mark up the Mustang V6s, just the V8s.
