100,000 Camaros a year?
Bob Lutz, the product czar over at General Motors, says that the Chevy Camaro will be so smokin' that 100,000 coupes will fly off dealership lots each year. That's also the number the automaker must be able to sell before the concept will see the light of day in production form. The automaker is deep in engineering a production version of the muscle car, and the business case is being fleshed out, according to Lutz, but a final decision hasn't yet been made.
The 100,000 mark might seem a little high, but it's not unattainable by any means -- the Ford Mustang sold 160,975 units last year and the Camaro itself hit the 200,000 mark in its heyday.
