Well I'll be damned..

Scott,

Is the IOM in the cutaway a good representation of what the IOM we will be getting on the Camaro is? Because the IOM on the Solstice and Hummer I've seen looks very different. More red. This looks like it isn't metallic and more like hugger or tangier orange than IOM.

Thanks in advance.


Inferno Orange Metallic - -the color we're offering!
THAT is incredible news! I am SO happy to know he confirmed this color as IOM

Color on computer photos can be a tricky thing since it is dependent on original lighting, camera quality; camera settings; file format, compression, and settings; monitor quality; and monitor settings.

That being said, after looking at these and other posts and photos on the site, it appears to me that the Camaro team is playing with IOM and it will not be the same IOM we are seeing on the Hummer and Solstice. It will be more orange and less red. We can only hope.

My Fuji camera tends to make red cars orange. I have came home from many a car show and said.."I don't remember that car being orange?".

The only reason I'm not on the new Camaro boat until the second year is due to colors.

My first choice was white with victory red stripes and victory red interior. Then, I learned that they aren't offering white in the first run. And then, I learned they are not offering the victory red interior anymore.

So, my second choice was orange with white stripes and white leather (like the interior in the 'vert concept). I was still willing to order an orange '10 car. However, I saw the orange being offered on my computer screen and I said, "That's it. I'm out. No new Camaro for me this time around."

This cutaway color, as it appears on my computer screen, is awesome. I'm very disappointed that I can't get white leather with it, but I think I still would have gone for it, but there's too much confusion. I just don't know how it will really look.

So, I'm waiting. GM lost me as a first-run buyer (not that they care) over colors, and all I'm really interested in is the LS3. But, if I can't have my first or second choice, I'm not paying premium for a new car.


Here's hoping I can get a white/red stripe/red OR white leather car or an orange/white stripe/white leather car in '11. As it stands with me now, those are the only color combos that I will order new. Those are good combos that I think they should offer.

I hope this shows that there is an interest in Hugger Orange or anything that looks like hugger orange. Hugger orange is not bland, flat or boring and is preferred by enthusiasts on this forum almost 2:1 over Inferno Orange Metallic. I hope GM is listening and I thank you all for voting. I do hope that IOM is being re-done and will be the orange we see in the cut-aways and not what we see in the current solstice.

If that is what makes it to production, I change my vote to IOM

.........and we brought an IVER so that people could sit in it -- and also look at what may be an iconic vehicle from the past year.


Believe me -- we wish we could have had a Camaro in every color -- but to do that would have meant moving the event to November -- do you think people would have wanted to bring their Camaros and Firebirds and Corvettes out in November (meaning those who live north of the mason/dixon?????)

What we DID do was to ensure that we had a new GM car on display to represent each of the 10 colors --

White G8
Orange Solstice
Cyber Gray ZR1
Red Z06
Imperial Blue Cobalt SS
Red Jewel Malibu LTZ
Aqua Blue HHR
Black Equinox Sport
Silver Traverse
Yellow RS -- and they were all in the courtyard in a row............

Moreover, we had 14 cars for everyone to drive - from Cobalt Turbo SS and Corvette to G8 V8 and CTS -- not to mention Tahoe Hybrid and Silverado
Duramax and Solstice.................

I do believe most people were glad they'd made the trip.........


............and then there was the opportunity to talk to engineers and designers........
