Petition to GM: We want to see Cyber grey

Petition to GM: We want to see Cyber grey on a Camaro before it is too late to make any changes in color for the sold orders...

This is a $40,000 investment and we are seeing multiple cars of the same color so there is no excuse by now that there has been no cyber grey camaro painted..

Ummmm.... why do you want to see just one color? I would think it would be more appropriate to ask to see real photos of ALL the colors.

Maybe a PDF of the brochure or something would work?

How about we petition for something everyone can use!?

I will be buying one in that color, but I don't care to see one before January. GM is in terrible financial shape, and they've done enough for us that we shouldn't be demanding colors that aren't already on their prototypes. I'll wait for production to see it.

I would agree and say that GM has already given us an unprecedented amount of information.

And maybe there is a CGM Camaro around somewhere that has just not been photographed. GM has only officially unveiled Black, Red, Yellow and Silver and the other colors have been spy shots. It has to show up because GM has to test the paint system with all of the colors sometime.

Edit: We have seen pilot cars 1-4,7,12 so right there we are missing 6 cars that have not been photographed.

That's a great suggestion. I love that gray they used to put on the last generation Mustang, especially on the Cobras, and CGM reminds me of it, except it's better I might have to go that color if it enhances the bodylines better than the IMB or black I was thinking of getting.

Let's cut them some slack and give them some room to breathe

Blur,

I'm not demanding the color.. And I know the financial situation GM is in however they did paint at least two in the more expensive color of the Red jewel clearcoat so they could have saved money and painted one cyber grey.. This is simply a petition from the most influential forum regarding the camaro as we all got GM to include both blue's for the SS.

I say ease up on GM. They have way more to worry about than making sure we see one color of a car that isn't even in production yet. We already know it's coming, it can be seen on other production models, relax and be patient.

Still amazed there is no WHITE, so my CGM will have to do, but it would be nice to see it live and not memorex. Still trying to convince wife to let me keep 67 also. Don't want to have to make that decision.

I understand about the financial situation, but I don't think its TOO much to ask to see a color before the pre-ordering is finalized. It could be as simple as having someone from GM snap a few photos of the cars on site and just posting them. They'll eventually get on here anyways, why not give that credit to GM? It will show how GM cares about their customers (even though they do with or without those pics, but nonetheless it couldn't hurt that bad).

I'm sure the car is out there, it'll be here soon.

I agree they've got more important matters to worry about right now, but we should be just one rung below their financial dilemma. We and coming Camaro buyers are a large part of their future, and our satisfaction and resulting word-of-mouth advertising have to be very important to them. I fully expect we'll be seeing MUCH more finalized data, including pics, nearer the production date. We've still got nine weeks until that date.

Part of the reason they are in such financial shape is because they have NOT been playing up to the public in these kind of deals...they finally have created a nice automobile, but in an effort to NOT let it become another GTO, they need to market the sucker...forums are FREEE advertising...if these companies would be a little more creative in their AD/PR they'd be doing alot better selling cars...their financial situation on the other hand has as much to do with CEO's ballooning paychecks, as poor sales.

Good post GM has no one to blame but themselves. They have allowed corporate greed an unions to turn their company upside down. Any company that supports union job pools is pathetic. How can you support allowing assembly line workers to show up and sit in a room all day and not do work and still get paid is ridiculous. We should not be kissing GM's ass like so many here believe; we r the customer. They r here to serve us. I currently have 4 GM vehicles, and I could care less if they go bankrupt. It is probably the best thing that could happen to them. Cutting the dead weight would be the best thing they could do, chapter 11 would allow them to still operate, and get thier head out of their ass. The only reason to save them is huge impact them failing would have on our economy, and the millions of innocent workers that depend on them.

Cyber Grey will look just like the Cyber Grey you see on the Vette. If that doesn't work for you then wait until next year. GM doesn't expect you to buy the car in advance.

And they have plenty of "excuses".

Sorry I don't mean to sound harsh but it's just a color.

so by your logic cyber gray should look the same on the traverse as on the corvette.... have you seen the cyber gray traverse? the colors look nothing alike. on the traverse it looks like a plain dark gray on the vette well.. it speaks for itself. even the same colors look drastically different on different cars. I ordered a cyber gray but at this point am thinking about changing just because I havent seen it and im really worried it will look more like the traverse than like the ZR1.

most of the people that have ordered this car havent seen it in person much less driven it, is it so much to ask to see what a certain color looks like?
