Is the Camaro production anything like the GTO where it was only to have 3 model years? Is there a definitive date when this generation is to be done? Is there a 6th Gen in the works?

With everything happening in the automotive world, I can't help but wonder what truly will come of the Camaro. An announcement was made yesterday stating that the Corvette is not set for target practice, but I have to wonder how GM and the Government truly feel about the Camaro. How important is this first year of sales going to be for this car?

I doubt a big redesign or anything for awhile, especially with everything going on.

Ford gave the S197 some new clothes for 2010. I bet Camaro sees some new metal by 2015. That Sounds somewhat far away, but living on loans and such, I doubt anything in the next 3-4 years.

I'm wondering if Camaro will ever see another engine. Most likely GM will give Camaro "Bump" Engines, Engines that receive small rises in HP as the years progress, the 82-92 F-body is a great example. I expect the LS3 to be here for a very long time.

EDIT: It'd be super retro to have new sheet metal in 3 years, just like the '67 Camaro getting fresh looks for '69. Doubt it will happen though.

Part of my reason for sticking with my order is personal concern about the future of the car after government ownership of GM and mandates to increase fuel efficiency using hybrid and electric powerplants (in order words, get it while the gettin's good). Right now the future of the Camaro beyond the 2011 model year seems uncertain, IMO.

Again, the GTO was only intended to be around for 3 years.
The Camaro is planned to be produced as long as they can sell enough from what I've heard.

Until we see how GM shakes out, nobody can predict anything.

Right, which is why I wondered if the Camaro may have some sort of expiration date similar to what we've seen in the past.

So it seems that its future is up in the air at this point.

The Camaro will upgrade to a generation six car. With Mr. Obama running GM, the car will become much more eco friedly and fuel efficient. In fact, it will not even burn gasoline or use electricity! It will have a fresh air engine just like the one on Fred Flintstone's car. Think about how easy a brake job will be. All you will need to do is get new Reboks.

You make me wanna take off go home and Plant a Tree :p


Camaro means Friend.....friend to the enviroment :)

Camaro's used to roam the streets and terminate Mustangs now they make the enviroment smell like a bounce sheet how sweet.

HELL NO :angry:

I agree with helping the air but there are a lot of other things to do on helping that.
LEts quit cutting down trees for more parkling lots and cement.

Gm is pissing my monkey off :mad:

Camaro is a car name devised by a GM marketing team that was inspired by the French word "camarade", which is synonymous with "friend".

that has been going on since march 16th 2009 dont let any dealer try to fool you on the limited run thing they try to use to their advantage. just another excuse for them to mark it up. dodge dealer pulled the same **** with the challenger. had one even tell me they would only build challengers for late 08 and 2nd quarter 09 and that was it no more again.
what was even dumber was when they said that only 2500 camaros would be built a year.

my brother goes to school at kettering in michigan(old gm university) he said that one of gm's engineers an alumnist was driving next generation camaro prototype and said that it looked more like the early seventies cars not sure if he was mistaken or just confused hes more of a vette guy but still that would be pretty cool those were sweet looking cars

The GTO was intended to be around longer than that, but due to pitaful sales, and lack of nostalgia, it was short lived.

If sales are decent, it should be around for a minute, unless of course GM folds.
