GM shelves Camaro convertible, Z28
4-cylinder engine option is also on hold
Jamie LaReau - Automotive News - March 23, 2009
DETROIT ó General Motors has delayed indefinitely the Chevrolet Camaro convertible and Z28 high-performance variant to save cash, sources say.
GM also has tabled plans to add a four-cylinder engine version of the Camaro. GM is starting to ship the Camaro to dealers this week.
Insiders say executives hope to restore the convertible to GM's product plan.
"Neither one has been outright canceled," says Terry Rhadigan, a Chevrolet spokesman. Rhadigan said GM will seek to bring out the convertible in 2011.
Another source familiar with GM product plans confirmed that the four-cylinder for the Camaro is dead for "the time being."
GM began building the Camaro, which starts at $22,995, including shipping, on Monday, March 16. GM estimates that it will take until May or June to fill the 14,000 sold orders in hand.
