We need a Nice Imperial Blue....I fear that (barring a Polo Green one) I will be unable to buy a new Camaro SS if it isn't Blue.....it's a deal breaker for me, and buying a V6 isn't an option.

I'm not going to get my car in blue but I believe it should at least be offered in blue because many people want it on their cars and it was my 2nd color choice.

HA i called this months ago, c'mon you should know they arent going to make the SS available in all colors. Im still sticking with Black, Silver, White, Cyber Grey and Red will be the only options for it.

And no one would listen to me.

I'm much more worried by the missing 550hp under the hood than by the color of the hood ...

The Mustang Cobra has always been available in fewer colors than the V6 and GT Mustangs. In 1993 the SVT Cobra Mustang was only available in 3 colors and in 1996 it was only available in 4. Why? I don't know. One must presume that it makes it easier on the manufacturer if lower volume cars are produced in fewer colors. And the V6 Camaro is anticipated to outsell the SS Camaro by more than double.

The camaro since its inception has always been offered with at least one if not two blue colors at launch and throughout its long run until 2oo2. If you are comparing the Camaro to the Cobra, you are comparing to the wrong car. The Mustang V8 has always had additional exclusive to V8's colors giving even more options than the V6 because they know their audience well.. The V8 if anything should offer more color's than the V6 even if there is a premium price for some like the red jewel..

SVT Cobras have been the lowest production volume Mustangs.
Camaro SS is planned to be the lowest production Camaro model.
How is this an invalid comparison?

The 2007 and 2008 Mustang brochures show the exact same colors (and number of colors) available on both the V6 and GT Mustangs. Apparently you are wrong that "Mustang has always had colors exclusive to the V8".

And you apparently missed my earlier post, where I said that I had been hoping to buy a Camaro SS in blue with white stripes myself. I'm right with everybody else who WANTS them to offer the SS in blue. I am just trying to understand what reasoning they had in not offering blue on the SS. Again, it must provide some advantage for them not to, or else they would, right?

While the 2007 and 2008 brochures do not include or mention it, the '08 Mustang Bullitt was a special version of the V8 and was the only '08 Mustang model available in dark highland green. So special models are sometimes available in colors not available on V6s or even regular Mustang GTs. And the '03 Mach1 was the only '03 Mustang available in grabber blue, but once again the Mach1 was a special model and not an option on the Mustang GT.

This year the same color's are offered in both the V8 and V6 models (bullit not included even though it is a V8 produced by Ford) however many of the years have offered exclusive color's on the V8 only. My point was made in that at the very least, all the color's were offered on both V8 and V6 Mustangs while in many years exclusive color's were offered. I remember in 1998, there was a special Gold color only available that year for the V8. Let's hope this forum gets GM to change this before production and offer a blue color.. AS for me saying the V8 Camaro vs the GT500 is an invalid comparison because the V8 Camaro will be in a much higher production run... I'm not here to argue, just saying that if you compare the Camaro V8 with the Mustang V8 as it should be, this year GM is doing things a bit differently than normal by not offering any blue color on the V8's..

I'm sure that all the folks who REALLY want blue enough to wait will get the last laugh when they come out with a badass new blue color.....maybe say in mid year when the white ones are available.....if not sooner. Cause in my opinion if they are thinking about sales numbers I'd be willing to bet more blue ones would be sold than yellow or inferno orange (maybe even more than both those combined)

Gonna have to look up some #'s on color sales. Blue is a "normal" color and im sure they would sale more blue than yellow or orange.... could be wrong though.

Personally I'm not interested in blue, but I want everybody to get as close to their dream Camaro as possible and not having a blue color option for the SS will definitely dampen that dream for alot of enthusiast and casual buyers.

I posted repeatedly in the other "no blue offered on the SS" thread, so I'll post here just to say that at least one blue should be offered on the SS, especially since 2 reds are being offered.
