2008 Beijing Auto Show: "2009" Chevrolet Camaro

Let's sell the Chinese some Camaros! Edmund's thinks it's spectacular GM released the Camaro in yellow. We know this is one of the show mockup bumblebees making the show circuit.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------

BEIJING — General Motors showed its new muscle car at the 2008 Beijing Auto Show, and this time, the 2009 Chevrolet Camaro was decked out in yellow paint.

Having already debuted officially at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show, the Camaro has already been the subject of numerous spy photos. But this is the first time the new Camaro has been seen in a color other than silver or black.

Official specifications for the production car have not yet been released, but the Camaro concept used a 400-horsepower all-aluminum 6.0-liter V8 mated to a six-speed manual transmission, plus an independent rear suspension.

What this means to you: The Chinese get a look as the U.S. market continues to salivate in anticipation of the production car. — Kelly Toepke, News Editor

Edmunds is kinda clueless (or very late on news) at times

Good for preliminary research on buying a car though.

And for pricing both used and new. They give you invoice and list and then "What other people are paying" which surveys current selling prices.

well-- obviously Edmunds wasn't at the North American Auto Show -- or they weren't paying attention -- because that's where we first showed the 'fiberglass' Bumblebee.........

The other two Bumblebees are once again, saving the world from Decepticons -- Transformers2 is in production.......

Are we talking production Camro's or the same ol' fiberglass bodied prototypes?

The Bumblebees from the first movie. The "GT-MarOs"? They were working, driving cars.

Not sure which cars you're referring to -- the one in the picture was originally a Silver Fiberglass that was built at the same time as the Silver Concept -- and the Red Fiberglass -- we had it repainted in "Bumblebee LIvery" for NAIAS.

Production Camaros haven't been seen yet.

i think he is talking about the new movie and if the production car will be in it rather than the fiberglass car.

Notice Scott didn't say they don't exist yet, just that they haven't been seen.

I'm sure there's one for the movie, but I doubt there are any more. The mules don't have to look nice to see how the drive or operate. We won't know about any production Camaros until GM shows them to us.
