Assembly Methods of Camaros So far

Does anyone know how the Camaros that are testing on the road or seen at shows have been assembled? I'm sure the assembly line will build quite a few cars before they get all the bugs are out. Do you think they all have been hand assembled so far?

Just realized this is in the wrong forum. Feel free to move as required.

i think they are trickling out of the plant while they train workers for the run

probably only a handful of cars though

i cant point at specific cars but that would be my guess, like the orange ss/rs we saw inside the factory.

Most of them were hand-built.

Before actual production begins on February 16th, GM will be building some Camaros off the line to give to VIP's to drive around and then provide feedback for improving production. I don't think any official number was ever announced...

Do you know if we are going to be able to sit in the car's in the auto shows or not? By that time, they should be able to get a couple more car off the production line.

you're guess is correct. there were camaros on th assembly back in the spring. how many have been built? no idea. They are supposed to slowly ramp up production this fall then go full swing in the winter.

yeah training people to make a completely new car takes a while as well as getting every thing layed out just right for optimum efficiency
