That "late 2011" rumour should be sunk, mainly because it's stupid. Who would release a friggin 556hp RWD car in friggin winter? Gimme a friggin break!

It's summer 2011 just like the Camaro SS/V6s.

Not to sink your ship, but their is a couple of things. First, this is GM, not all of their ideas are great ones. Second, I took a vist a local Cheverolet dealership(Tatly Cheverolet Morris, Il) couple weeks ago. They informed me that they will be releasing the Convertible Camaros in the time frame of October. Around here, October doesn't always have the best weather. So, what does that tell you?

Well the 2010s came out in March. Honestly, I don't care when the Z comes out, as long as its out in front of my house a couple months after production begins.

you do realize that for decades, the new years model would hit the showroom floors in Sept. of the previous year. with the camaro (and a lot of cars this day and age), they started production a little early. 2010 camaro for sale in Mar of 09.... speaking of which.... isnt it about the anniversary of the 2010 camaro production start date?

The date for the Camaro's release was March 16th, 2 days after my wedding. I will probably be buying the 2nd model year of this generation.

To make things weirder, my fiancée's birthday is September 29th. In 1966, that was the release of the 1967 Camaro.

My birthday, April 10th, this year is the last day to order a 2010 Camaro.

When I lived in college with my wedding's best man, we lived in apartment F5. Is the Camaro not like a 5th F-body?

I was meant to drive a Camaro.

I don't care when it comes out. I have not purchased the 2SS/RS because I always hoped they would release the Z28. It WILL be mine.

People do things because people don't think. Ever wonder why people make crappy movies? Because they don't have attention to detail and they just don't think.

We can avoid this by providing feedback. We know that GM reads these forums, so we should keep perpetuating the expectation of a summer 2011 release. At the very least, if they never thought about it before, they may think "oh yeah, I guess that makes sense".

If we don't set them straight and keep saying "late 2011", some sleepy GM exec may just bring it out at the end of 2011 because he never used his brain.

that's nonsense. It would be pure torture to release it in late 2011 and then have it sit in your garage undriven for a half a year.

I'm waiting LONG ENOUGH for my Camaro. I missing the 2010 summer, I'll be darned if I'm missing the 2011 summer too.

it does make some sense to release it in fall/winter. this way, they can meet the initial pent up demand of the "gotta have it's" and then they will be able to sell to the fairweather fans afterwards when spring/summer rolls around.

The point of a fall release is because they expect the hardcore enthusiasts to snap up the early production units. They want those buyers taken care of early so that when spring rolls in and the uninitiated start thinking, "Man, a new sports car would be nice!" there will be Z28s on the showroom. They are more concerned about sales momentum than they are about what makes sense for you personally. GM has been marketing cars for a long time, release dates aren't pulled out of a hat.

I just always thought they were cool

And, again, I'm making my own Z-28. =P

that reminds me I brought my son home from the hospital in a 79 Camaro.. I never told him that.. That is when I learned that a Camaro was not a car to put a babyseat in...

I wonder how many of these parts will bolt-up to LS/LT/SS models. That'd be interesting to find out. They're likely not going to be as strong as what the aftermarket has already engineered, but if you don't need to spend as much money for a part you're never going to use to it's potential, maybe it'd be a viable alternative
