Camaro to debut before Indy according to Autoblog

Autoblog is saying sources at GM are saying that it will debut before Indy.

http://www.autoblog.com/2008/05/15/c...ndy-this-year/

Man I hope this is correct.

Autoblog has usually been reliable when they have said that they talk directly with GM.

Oh boy I hope it's OK for me to post this. From what we've been told months ago by the folks at GM we've been working with, there will be a private unveil for press/media the weekend BEFORE the PUBLIC unveiling at Indy. Maybe that's what they're getting at.

Of course plans can be changed.

Moreover, GM just announced that the Camaro will be seen at Indy. Don't expect it to come out of hiding any sooner. Remember that this will be a MY2010 Camaro, so releasing it in early 2009 is as early as GM can get away with releasing the car.

September will be fine by me. If it is unveiled earlier then that's even better. But it doesn't really matter to me, Im sure it wouldn't be very far before the Indy bash, and no matter when I see it for the first time, I'm still going to have to wait to get my hands on it. :(

I don't know about this.

The picture on the site isn't even the actual photo...it's photoshopped with a "guesstimate" on a color. GM hasn't revealed a color lineup (just speculation) and AutoBlog has taken it upon themself to plop up an official photo with an unofficial color.

It just doesn't look very professional...and that's why I doubt it. I could be wrong, but I just can't take someone serious that doesn't even "try."

That seems plausible, however that makes GM's comments to Autoblog rather odd. Why tell them that when any reveal to the media would have a gag order on it until the public reveal? I'm wondering if someone in GM decided that September might be too long a wait. GM has generally shown production ready versions and specs pretty early.

+1. I'm not disputing the post, by any means, however, I remember reading Father would make annoucements on CamaroZ28 first. Who knows though?

It isn't my post. It's Autoblogs and thought it of interest because it counters the news we've heard here. Wish a GM official close to the truth would let us know what that cryptic Autoblog post was about. Scotttttt where are you?

Wow, deep breath. I don't think they were trying to pass these off as the official color options, but rather to give people a feel for how it might look in the usual color options.
