Oh..wait I cant? because they arent in production and have no impact on sales at all?

Damn..I guess the Camaro will have to wait for a while to regain a dominant position.

Hype of two different models wont increase sales for other trims of the Camaro. That would like me getting all hyped up about the 2011 SRT8 and running down and buying a 2009 SE.

If people are excited about buying a Z28..they're going to buy a Z28 when it comes out, not rush down and buy a 2011 SS. If someone is burning up over a 'Vert they're not going to rush down and buy a brand new LT.

If they do they're morons.

Yeah, don't know or care about all that. The new Camaro is huge, the addition of the convertible and then the Z28 is just gonna keep that freight train rolling.
Basically with the Mustang what you see is what you got until the new design.
That's all I'm saying.

its funny how fast these threads get combative.
wow.
we're finally in a place where american muscle is back!
we should all be happy for each other, not against.
i know i said "hahah" earlier about the 3 (probably crappy) stangs outselling camaro,
but... would you rather be sharing the road and stories with your fellow Big Three ponies, or a bunch of cartoon-esque insanely moronic ricers?

Ya, but you also need to factor in that Ford is offering 0% financing for 72 months on the Mustang. You are NOT going to see that offer for a Camaro anytime soon. And the convertible and Z28 will help distance GM far away (IMO) from the competition.

Hype produces interest, and interest leads to buying. Do you honestly think the Camaro would sell as much as it has without all the hype surrounding it?

Yeah, but I agree with ViperTomcat, that won't lead to sales today.

The Camaro did have a lot of hype, but I tend to think it was the ability to deliver on the hype that put it where it is right now. Obviously the convertible option will be a known quantity as far as performance, but the Z28 still needs to live up to the hype or it won't sell well (especially at it's price).

So I think there are people who are planning on getting the convertible already, but folks are only considering the Z28 right now.

You're right that interest is good, I just don't see it converting to sales unless the Z28 stands out like the Camaro did. And of course, if the Z28 does perform up to expectations, then watch out.

Kind of a confusing time for counts- right on the cusp of 2010 and 2011

Actually the anticipation for a convertible and the Z-28 is probably hurting Camaro sales. Take the number of Mustang vert sales and divide it in half and give that to the Camaro, and divide the GT500 in half for the Z-28, and you will see next summers sales. (If the economy keeps gaining ground)

I'm sorry that you, for some reason, do not like the interior of the Camaro.

I really hope you enjoy rocking out in your future Mustang though. Maybe they'll even offer a HUD for 2012.

I guess I'll be enjoying the usual compliments I get from bystanding strangers and family/friends who I give rides to in the meanwhile.

hahhaha
all the interior "haters" are just on the same kick as the moronic journalists.
if they were all creaming over it, so would all the peeps online, too. ignore them. its a great car in and out, and the accolades, sales, and apeshit-happy drivers like us are the proof. not that it even needs proving.

What this all means is that the new 5.0 excitement is gone. Good sales...yes....beating camaros in 2010 sales....not gonna happen

Doesn't take a mathmatician or number cruncher to figure it out.

6000 cars to make up in 5 months....at an advantage of "3" cars a month....not gonna do it. In fact, I'll be surprised if they beat the Camaro for more than 1 month the rest of the year.

Or performance, or resell value, or overall value, etc etc the list goes on.

Seems to be the numbers are all well above the competition. Very nice Chevy!

Two things I noticed:
-Camaro July 2010 production was only 4,900 units. That is half of what GM has been producing monthly in the past year. Is this an indication of a declining production future for the Camaro?
-The one year trend of the Challenger has been increasing steadily. There were no sharp increases or decreases. Due to this, the Challenger looks the most promising out of all 3 cars....especially with the new engines next year.
