Shoot for the 2010 or hold out for 2011?

My wife and I have been looking at getting the 2010 Camaro for about 2 months or so. We agreed that it would be prudent financially to wait till we have a larger down payment. I'm a huge Camaro fan and really wanted the new release 2010, but now that I've heard/seen little glimpses of the 2011 I'm starting to get excited about the 2011.

Is anyone else waiting for the 2011? Would there be any disadvantage to waiting to get a 2011 other than not getting it during its revival?

i'd wait until after sema then decide or if you like green, but when the 11's come out you might get a little off a 10 on price

Well one disadvantage and to me the biggest is that the cost of the options on the '10 may go up on the '11 and most likely there will be a base MSRP increase as well.

This may sound silly, but I like the idea of owning the first year of this body style and being the first kid on the block to own one.

That being said, once the 2011's come out, you could probably save some money on the 2010 if they have some sitting on lots still.

They MAY also make positive changes just as they did with the GTO's as well... I had to get the wifey a new whip first, so I will prolly have to wait for a 2011...

I know what the colors for 2011 are, but don't know of any physical changes. Anyone working on a new facia or grill? Are the tail lights changing? How 'bout factory installed Hurst short throw shifter?

Not happy about the color changes, because I don't know what color to buy now.

I live next to Berger Chevrolet and heard that HUD will be available in the 2011.
For what it's worth.

I'm kind of in the same boat, I am planning on placing my order in April and hoping for a June delivery, but who knows what'll be available then, 2010 or 2011? I've contemplated on just holding out till June and trying at my luck to get a car with my specifications off of the lot.

you know what the difference between the 10 and 11 will be ... the sticker will say 2011 instead just the next shift will start making it

The 2011 wont be here till at least the 3rd quarter of next year. I doubt their will be many significant changes besides colors. Their may be a few new options but I doubt anything that will make a 2011 much better than a 2010.

Where'd you hear this? I'm just curious because as of right now I didn't think that there had been any official info release on when the 2011's would be released.

I am waiting for the 2011 because I want HUD. I was told by a dealer they would start taking orders in June. How knows maybe some other creature comforts.
