When that time comes though it's 2SS/RS or 2LT/RS if I'm very impressed with the LT.
Yea me too. One good thing about waiting till then is hopefully by then you'll find one 2-3k below MSRP.

I need to wait for some significant incentive to buy mine. I was banking on $30k. Now, I need to wait until I can afford it. :(

I completely agree ... everyone talks about it being the same as the new mustang when it comes out ... why the same - make the camaro price cheaper, and we already know the camaro better in quality and features, it then becomes a no-brainer on which car to choose. Not that i'd EVER buy a Mustang ... just a little disappointed I'll probably be one to wait til it hits the used market ...

A little more expensive than expected, so I'll save for a few more months then get my SS.

I second this.

I was expecting the SS1 to start at around 28k. To see it start at 31k is a little dissappointing. So, instead of me rushing out to order it, I will wait untill things loosen up on the price front. All I want is the RS package, moonroof, and the hurst shifter. But that would push the sticker to almost 34k. About 4k out of my range right now.

I'll wait untill you can get some bucks off at the dealers.

it's so crazy to hear people who have been dying to get this car for years and months now saying that they have to wait even longer or not get the car at all. i've only been a member since february and a fan of the car since the transformers movie. but to see others who are life long camaro fans be so upset should send a message to GM

I've been saving for this car since 2000 when I bought my last one. I can definitely afford it, but I am forced to wait because there's no HUD and no Blue color.

I'm right there with ya man. I still hope to get it, but ordering it in 2009 I think is out of the question. I think I'm going to have to wait until 2010. The only way I can see getting it before than is if they offer 0% before 2010 and I don't really see that happening.

wel i was banking on a fully loaded LT2RS being less than 30k, IMO a v6 should not cost more than a v8 EVER, but a loaded LT2RS is like 32,300. that's about three grand outta my price range, so yea i think that they also should lower the prices a couple grand and the sales would go through the roof, sure they would not make as much profit per car, but in the long run they defs would be able to make up for that loss.

That would be below invoice, don't think you will see that for a while.

I only found out about the car a few months ago, but have been saving towards a car for my 25th bday in february 2009 since the beginning of this year. initially i wanted to get the LT/RS but it looks like I might only get an LS. if at all that is, because i'm not sure if the LS will still be as impressive without the fog lights, 18" steel tires, basically no convenience interior etc. I will have to wait and see.

I vote none of the above.

Prices are exactly where I guessed - G8 GT = Camaro SS, loaded SS equals G8 GXP.

I'll be waiting until inventory has reached the level where decent deals can be had. Or order online and have it shipped for a reasonable deal sooner.

Yeah, if I were going to get an SS, I might as well get a 2SS because a purchase of that size needs to be something I'm completely satisfied with. But the prices are just too much right now. No sense in getting a V-6, that would be a downgrade for me. I'll wait a year or so until the hype has waned, and look for a car that was owned by someone who got more car then they could afford.

Very disappointed in the base SS price, with the options I'd want it'd come in around 34k + tax, ect I figure would bring it close to the 37k, waaaayyy over the line of what I was looking to pay (So much for affordable and competitive with mustang). Damn, I really wanted this too, but guess I'll probably get something else and trade it in later an get my Camaro a few years down the road.

The 6.1L V8 Hemi Challenger starts ar 42k.......... Chevy was smart! (Even though I wouldnt buy the Challenger).. I was buying the Camaro since I saw it on Transformers.. no matter the cost.. Wasnt sure how I was gonna do it, but I was pretty posisitive about it.
