Default Camaro Concept.. Opinions.

I like camaros.. My last car was one.. If you havent taken a look at the concept camaro I encourage you to do so. It looks pretty impressive...
However I am a tad bit disapointed.
They wanted to go back to the classic camaro look as ford did with the mustang.. and there is a HINT of the classic look to it.. however I find the car much more Futuristic looking than classic. The hints of classic-ness that are there are enveloped with the futuristic look right on top.. (and in the case of the front and back lights) even blocking it.

The HP looks impressive 400 wow.. I wonder if this will be for the Z28 version... SS version or what?

What is everyones opinion on this car? Just wondering@

im a big camaro fan, but mostly the old 1st gens, mainly the '69er. the concept camaro IMO is pretty damn ugly. 400 hp is sweet, but a face only a mother (or the most hardcore of fans) could love.

Thats what I thought.. My brother is a salesman at a dealership that MAINLY deals with chevys.. they are authorized in both ford and chevy though.. but needless to say he is BIASSED to chevy.. He loves the car..
OH and on a funny side note... he used to work at a ford house and back then was all the way ford lol... guess you gotta be for what you really sell lol.

My uncle owns a ford dealership and his son works there..
Its halarious to listen to the bickering...
OH and get this.. theres a doctor in my town that is a big sports car fanatic. He is on the ferrari preffered buyers list ON TOP and gets first choice of any ferrari that comes to the US.
He just ordered a ford GT and put the payment down for the 07 SALEEN.
he paid about 30k over sticker price and guess what...
He wrote one check.. for both of them to my cousin...
*drools* Must be nice to have so much money that money is.... nothing.
Im betting he orders one of these camaros the MINUTE they become available.

I like the way they look, but I think the new mustangs look better. The LS2 is an amazing engine, and the hp numbers are stout, but keep in mind it is planned to be built on the Zeta platform and will weigh ~4,000 lbs. I would rather wait until I can afford a car with an LS2 that doesn't weight two tons (i.e. the vette).

Correct me if I am wrong, but I heard 2008-2009 on the new Camero, with the Challenger shortly thereafter.

I am hearing at my Dodge Dealership that the Challenger is on for 2008. I think I read the Camaro may be 2009.

I don't like it. I like Camaros for the most part but I don't like the new one. I really liked the LS1 cars.

I like it and hope they build it. If GM prices it close to a mustang then they will have a winner. If the price gets to close to the corvette, then I do not think it will sell well. I think the GTO suffers from some of that.

Take care,

I think the new comaro will come to market around the time of the redone, 2009 mustangs to once again, star a muscle car war.

But I think this is the one they are going to produce. I don't like this one at all.

I agree with the old versions as well. Don't really like the new concept. The Zeta platform ruuins the car IMO too and the release date on the camaro is 2008 so we'll see them on the lots end of next summer.

gregariousgreg,

I just bought my uncles 75 Vette a few weeks ago and is all original numbers matching. Here it is:

Needs a little preventive maintenance done first before I get it on the road but all in all in excellent shape for the age.

OK, back to the subject......I DO NOT care for the new concept Camero at all. They might have put subtle little hints of retro into it but you have too look too close IMO to see them. Now the Challenger says retro all the way. You can see it the minute you look at it as well as the Mustang. Ford is going to be one step ahead of everyone on this. I think they might be wanting to wait for Ford to make the next body change to see if the competition is going to stay or fade away to a futuristic look.

I like the concept minus the front. Front wheel back looks cool.

I think the new camaro looks like a cadliac and the bow tie in the grill makes it look cheezy. The horsepower is impressive though but will the regular blue collar guy be able to afford it? The new mustang I think is the best looking affordable car with ***** I've ever seen but opinions are like ******** everyone has one.

Default RE: Camaro Concept.. Opinions.

I'm a Chevy guy from the late 60's. I had a number of Vettes, Chevelles, Camaros, and even a Vega. I now own an 05 Mustang GT as my toy. I think the new Camaro is also too futuristic looking. GM hasn't produced a really nice muscle car in a long time. The SSR was a flop, the GTO was another abortion, and I think the new Camaro will fall to the same demise also. The one thing that I see might kill all these cars again is these HorsePower Wars. In the early 70's not only emisisons killed these types of cars but also insurance rates for HighPerfomance Cars. I know when I was young I always wanted more go too, but now I hope this doesn't send this new generation into extinction because of insurance costs. Chevy should forget the Camaro and build an awesome Retro 67 Chevelle. I also don't think Chevy will compete price wise with the Mustang everything they make is for the Rich and Famous. May be thats why there in so much trouble.

I can draw pictures of cars. Until I see an actual production vehicle, I can't get too excited about a big maybe.
