LeftLaneNews: Camaro announcement before SEMA show

GM to announce Camaro production ahead of SEMA?



There's speculation in the Motor City that GM will announce plans to produce the Camaro ahead of the October 31 SEMA show, according to the Detroit News. In early April, organizers of the 2006 Specialty Equipment Market Association show announced the event would have an increased focus on muscle cars, with Ford, General Motors and DaimlerChrysler teaming up to jointly display their latest offerings as they share the title of "Vehicle Manufacturers of the Show." The Ford Mustang GT500, Chevrolet Camaro, and Dodge Challenger will share the limelight at the event, organizers said. While there's no concrete evidence that GM is getting ready to make an announcement, it's unlikely the automaker would go into the show as the only automaker without production plans. On July 1st, Chrysler announced it would produce the Challenger as a 2008 model.

"The Mustang, Camaro and Challenger helped bring many of our industry's earliest businesses into being," said SEMA President and CEO Christopher J. Kersting. "The current production and concept versions of those fabled cars are now kindling similar passion in a new generation of auto enthusiasts and are once again providing opportunities for our member companies."

"The idea of collaboration is particularly appropriate this year, the 40th anniversary of the SEMA Show," noted Kersting. "Our roots and our heritage have evolved with the musclecars of today, so it is fitting that we're celebrating our past while working with OEMs that are looking to the future. They share the passion that our member companies have built their businesses on, so it's a very good fit."

Its just speculation, but it is a good point GM's right now the only one of the three not committed yet to building the car on display.

Well, I think we already are, but the big thing is WHEN! If they don't get it out no later than the '08 model year, they are hosed.
