Its a older article but it gets the point across! Blue is just way to popular to be left out of the SS lineup.

I'd have to assume, based on what i've read, that since GM is going through financial hardships right now, and they are projecting the V6 to waay outsell the V8, its more economically efficient to limit the variety of colors needed to pump V8's off the production line.

however, i could also be completely wrong.. just a theory..

I want a different color, but I do like blue and I think that all colors should be available no matter what stile you want. The out come could be more cars sold. It is time that GM brass quit telling people what to buy and start making what they want instead.

I am not going to buy blue whether it comes out or not on the SS, so I voted no, because GM needs our the honest truth about what the market desires.

Hell yeah offer blue. I may not be getting the color but as stated before its a very popular color. Two reds, but no blue makes no damn since. Could do it like the Red Jewel and make it an optional color that you have to pay a little more for...

This doesnt make any sense to me. Of all the colors, why did they leave out blue. Whenever I think of a Camaro, I think of the color blue...I am not even kidding. I think that blue really personifies the Camaro, more so than even black. I always thought that blue was the absolute perfect color for this car, and blue seems to have a little bit of Chevy symbolism to it anyway. In fact, what got me into Camaros in the first place was when I saw a 1967 blue Camaro SS with white racing stripes.

Have we found out why they are leaving blue out? Please tell me it has something to do with the Z28.

I don't trust paint booths, I have heard storys about paint chipping off after years have gone by so i will never paint a car, and I don't want a blue ss i want a red ss but i still voted yes becuase I bet more than a few people want a blue ss on this site or not blue is a attractive color and has many colors to it like metallic and a lighter blue wich is aqua, so if they don't offer a blue SS offer a blue Z/28.

I know that I've posted a few times about what I wanted out of my 2SS/RS that I fully intend on purchasing. I'd mentioned black about a bazillion times, but then I saw a few photos of some blue vehicles that would totally sway my opinion. The LT isn't even something I'd consider, so with no SS in Blue, I'd have to go with black, but I'd really like to have one in blue (would be my first BLUE car!!!). I think it's a bad idea when marketing this car to limit the color pallette when it's a color available on lesser trim levels. That really doesn't make any sense to me at all. I guess that's why I'm not in the marketing sector. Still, you'll see an increase in sales if you include Blue in the SS trim level color availability. Just my 2 cents.

^^^ Ditto...what's up guys...just migrated over from 5thgen.org to join the blue vote...been a long time lurker.

I don't want to "settle" for another color, when all I want is a blue SS.

Normally I wouldn't care, but I wanted my next car in blue. I think the new 370z and Hyundai Genesis will offer that color.................

JSB is number 1 with me.

Unfortunately, we're asking for any blue on the SS at this juncture.

What are they thinking????

I'm not sure what they are thinking but they have to add BLUE to the SS line-up. It is a very popular color. Hopefully they will change their minds!!!

Without having an Aqua Blue Metallic paint option on the SS, along with the blue interior ambient lighting to match, with black leather, I'm not getting an SS, it's a deal-breaker for me too.
