AutoWeek now says 09 Camaro has been moved to 08

Recommended Posts

If you don't like Edmunds date for the Camaro start reading AutoWeek. They are reporting in the Feb 20th issue that the 2009 Camaro has been moved up to 2008.

I get the feeling info on this is so tight the press is reaching for any clue they can right now. Watch the Camaro web site and posts from Fbodfather for any additional clues. What clues he post do come together in time.

They give no other details on the Camaro but they do outline the latest Bluedevil hints. Most of the same as we have been hearing 2900 pounds, $100,000 and supercharged. They did say 7.0 SC but they have been the only ones I have seen to make a 7.0 claim.

For the folks that don't like the 08 Camaro date you can contact them at Autoweek.com.

Did they say it would be an 08 MY or here in 08?

"One hot rumor: Camaro production was moved forward, from 2009 to 2008".

That is all they give in details, I wish there was more.

Thats great news, if they do it right it will be a big hit. The D.O.D. system and great price point and quality will make it a smash. With the MPG so good i would use it as my daily driver. I really hope its here soon. I honestly believe they will sell a lot of the base models to young girls/woman. If the price they have been saying it will cost is true, I cant see it not being a huge hit for GM. GET HER HERE!!!!

I think a Camaro followed up by the Impala will be a great 1-2 punch.

The heritage of these two car is something Japan can build. They have for years tried to buid a better Harley but don't understand it is might run better and sound like it but it still ain't a Harley. NSX and Ferarri they same thing still not a Ferarri.

For such a traditional minded country they never have grasped Heritage and history in cars or bikes in the states.

especially how nice they say it is. The only thing that scares me is we heard the same stuff about the new Malibu for years and still no car so I hope it doesnt take forever GM needs it now. However I do agree it would be a great one two punch. The line up should be pretty cool in the next few years. Monte RWD Impala RWD and the Camaro. and in a newly designed Malibu ( soon I hope ) to compete with the Camrys/Altimas of the world, the trucks its changing I just hope people will give them a fair shake

Yes, they are getting warmer. ;)

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Slightly warmer, but I have a feeling that's too far into the decade to make a difference.

Just look at the progress made on GMT900. :thumbsup:

No, it means you have to put your foot down to roast your tires. AFM shuts down half the engine at low load — coasting downhill, highway cruising, idling at the lights, crawling around the parking lot etc. Put your foot down and all the cylinders fire for maximum power.

no he's right. they just have to make a few minor mods to the concept before it makes it into production in Oshawa. adding 2 rear doors, turning the engine sideways and adding a leaping antelope logo. instant Campala? or maybe Impalaro? or maybe just Impalacamaro.

Yea - my bad - who am I to talk - especially when some very talented and gifted people around here are sifting through certain peoples dried turds, counting the reconstituted corn kernels and learning the coded messages and hidden mysteries to these programs.

I can't compete with that - especially when I can only pick up the phone and talk to real people.

Yea - again - my bad. Sifting through crap is not my strong suit!

Considering this being a place for GM Enthusiasts and real enthusiats I often wonder why certain people post here any longer? Simply to inflate their own ego's in a "Jim Dollinger" sort of way?

I do apologize that I am not as good as "sugar coating" my responses, must be that college education you have.

This is a place to share ideas, speculate and have fun! Not a place to just do personel attacks on another posters just because you don't agree.

If you have an idea present it and let other have their own opinion!

So Josh will it still be here in 07 - Yea I shot that timing down over at cz28 when you posted it. Why, it is wrong.

And another thing Josh - a reflection of ego is being able to admit when you are wrong. I think you and the BM should step back and look in the mirror. Admitting you are wrong is a trait you both lack. That is why your opinions are such easy targets for being dissected and torn apart. You do not learn from your mistakes. You do not learn period.
