bothers me how rare a green ss is...

seen lots of v6 come up on the market but the green Camaro ss is a true gem I like green and yellow but I am still debating what lengths I would go to get a green one, the price, extremely far distance ect most likely going to end up with yellow which I am totally fine with !

....for Dodge and Chevrolet I HATE how certain colours are special editions...as far I know you can order any mustang in "gotta get it green" now I am buying used so my rant can only go so far buy theoretically if I was buying brand spanking new and I cant choose last years colour wow....I wonder how many people walk away from almost buying a car for that reason and tracking down last years car used

I like special edition cars but come on its a paint code you could at the VERY least make the special one a candy green and the normal one like a normal Kawasaki ninja green....it grinds my gears lol does anyone else agree

You COULD order ANY 2011 Camaro in Synergy Green for a limited time...that's when all SSs were built and NONE of them are Special Edition Camaros...just regular production cars. There were approximately 3750 SGM Camaros built as 2011s...that includes LSs, LTs and SSs.

The color was first available as a Synergy Edition Camaro in 2010 only as a V6 1LT model and it WAS denoted as a Special Edition with a limited number of 2425 cars produced. This is the reason that you see so many more V6s in SGM than SSs.

The only thing that grinds my gears...lol...was being told that the 2010 Synergy Editions would be the ONLY Camaros ever produced in the color. Or even better news...if you're willing to settle on a Chevy Sonic...you can get one of those in Synergy Green for 2014.

Silly rabbit. You forgot that part of the disclaimer GM does all the time about reserving the right to change models, options, engines, colors, etc., at any time and without notice...

IIRC, and I may be mis-remembering, I thought the tricky words when the Synergy Green Editions were rolled out that they would be "the only 2010 Camaros" painted SGM. Which left that door open for 2011. I could be wrong on that.

I think that was a huge sore spot, and for good reason, for a lot of SE owners that got essentially duped by GM. But I think the 2010's were the only 5th gen Camaros to get the green treatment inside as well, correct? So it's still kinda special.

I was hoping Kinetic Blue, or something very similar would have made it to 2014 color choices. But alas...they really did limit that color. Shame.

GM had/has a Synergy Green interior trim kit available. So even then the interior stuff can easily be added.

Around here ANY SS is rare to see, not just the green ones.
As one of the savvy ones that gambled the color would continue in '11, I only see 2 other greens in a tri-county area--Both 6's.

Yes there was El...the steering wheel, shifter handle, arm rests and console cover all came covered in black leather with green stitching.
