Camaro orders: Nearly 3,000 in three days

http://www.autoweek.com/apps/pbcs.dl...810169985/1065

Nearly 3,000 people stepped up for a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro during the first three days since General Motors opened up the order bank.

And those people will be waiting at least four months before they get a car, as production isn't scheduled to start until February. Those who have placed an order will get updates from GM, including notification of the target production week for their car.

GM will build the Camaro at its Oshawa, Ontario, assembly plant.

Also, the automaker has yet to start taking orders for convertibles. The 2,944 sold orders taken since Monday are all coupes.

There might be another large group of orders submitted this weekend, when many people will have the time to visit a dealership.

GM opened up the order window earlier than it typically does for a new car because of the pent-up demand for the new Camaro, a GM spokesman said.

More than 600,000 people were "hand raisers" who had given GM an e-mail address in order to be notified about Camaro news.

None of us would have to worry about any markups in that case. Fingers crossed.

The Camaro is 100 hp past its competition. The V6 is running with the top of the competition. In other words, if these cars are the whipped cream and the lower trims are the shake, the Camaro V6 is the cherry on top, and the Camaro SS is the person eating the whole ****ed thing.

When the Camaro starts to show up at dealerships then it should get interesting. It may start a wave of people wanting to order/personalize their own.

Chevy made a good move by taunting us with the concept and giving us the protoypes and the famous shot 2 years ago:


I think the (almost) 4 year wait for the Camaro has brought tons of more people looking to buy one over the years. Chevy has done everything right to advertise the Camaro so far, so 3,000 people isn't at all surprising to me. Man I wish I could be in that number right now.

P.S: wtf is this?

The numbers are more impressive and meaningful when you place them in the context of our current economic hardships!

exactly...also figure most people don't even know chevy started taking orders and announced prices (some dealers probably don't even know yet )...and marketing isn't even close to being kicked into gear yet. I'd expect to see some Camaro commercials during the superbowl and one given out to the MVP...assuming they have sponsorship again...(last year they gave out a hybrid escalade). This baby is gonna sell.
