We are going to build both V6 and V8 models at startup --

i would imagine that the SS will be out at release. The V6 will likely be there along side the SS. However, if the V6 is out ahead of the SS I would imagine it will be a matter of weeks not months before the SS is available.

Guys this message means that both cars will be out and sold at the same time. The V6 will not appear before the V8 and vice versa. At the same time.

I guess, in theory, a V6 could roll off the line before a V8 at the plant, making the V6 the first Camaro. I'm not worried.

Someone probably read that historicly the six has always been the bigger seller when it comes to Camaro and made up a story to match their assumption they made since gas prices are where they are.... As Fbod said

Could he have been more clear he said both will be available at start-up! Not weeks, but at start-up, this is why rumors just keep swirling around here.

Guys, dealers know the V8 will be high demand. I am going to make a speculation, the statement you are about to read is merely MY opinion, not necessarily yours.

SPECULATION: They (some) are trying to convey an artificially low supply, therefore increased profits on "dealer" markup. The consumer will think "I better buy it at whatever price, the dealer was lucky to get this one therefore I better get it". This is one of the reasons people don't like car salesmen.

lol that's not merely speculation... That is the truth...

Yeah, I'm sure both will be coming out initially. And for those of you that do want the Camaro right away, you know what to do, either go in now and place a sales order, or when pricing, and official orders begin go and place your order.

I'm not sure what the big deal is anyways. Anyone getting their cars early, doesn't get to choose from as many options because some will not be available until mid year.

Unless, of course, they put in another line and perfectly time it to have a V6 and V8 Camaro come off both lines at the exact same time...

I'll stop now.
