Click above for a high-res gallery of the Chevy Camaro concept.

We're admittedly tiring of the Camaro hype machine, but we can't fault the fanboys at 5thgen.org for keeping their pot of excitement on boil. The site threw up a countdown to the announcement of the production Camaro on July 22nd, which apparently will be held at all domestic Chevrolet dealers through a two-hour satellite broadcast. Retailers will be given all the details on the Camaro at that time and according to a source, "real orders for real cars" will begin being accepted.

      Hell yeah Camaro !!! i wonder what engine will be in it ?
      • 6 Years Ago
      That is the most mindblowingly horrid interior I have ever seen in a car in the last 30 years. I don't even know where to start.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Wait, someone fails to see why a 4,000 lb car with a four cylinder engine is a bad idea? I mean, really?

      ESPECIALLY one whose name is synonymous with V8 sound, power and fury for decades? One whose reputation would certainly be marred by such a thing?

      Is there anyone out there who honestly thinks a four cylinder, 4,000 lb car isn't going to work hard to move around, won't sound real good doing it, and will use nearly as much fuel as the V8?

      Someone thinks that there are really people out there who are going to think "four cylinder" and "fuel economy" when they hear the name Camaro?

      Wow, just wow.

      Again, the market is rife with four cylinder perfomance cars that are smaller, lighter and created to be four cylinder cars in the first place. Buy one of those.
        • 6 Years Ago
        It isn't 4,000lbs, and Audi sells a lot of 1.8Ts A4 which are about 4,000lbs.

        Yes, the engine will sound like it is working hard. It will be working hard.

        If you don't like it DON'T BUY IT.

        Why do people act like making a 4-cylinder version somehow affects those who want the V8?

        ahahahahhahahahah

        I had to cover my mouth to keep from disturbing everyone in my office from laughing so hard...Thank you for that post.

        Great Post!

        You're either a little girl who wondered on to our site or a pedophile, and little girls don't have mustaches...
      • 6 Years Ago
      Let me see if I got this straight: this was an announcement that they will have an announcement a couple weeks in the future.

      And this is news for what reason?
      • 6 Years Ago


      If it were 1965 instead of 2008 I would be excited.
      • 6 Years Ago
      GM has been dragging out the introduction of the Camaro for so long that by the time is does hit dealer showrooms it'll be D.O.A.
      • 6 Years Ago
      If you want a four cylinder car buy a car engineered for it, like the turbo Solstice or Sky, the Cobalt SS, HHR SS or get a used SRT4. Those of us who vastly prefer V8s have been waiting a long time for this car.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Amen. Praise Jebus!
        • 6 Years Ago
        There's a new Camaro coming out?! SWEET. Maybe they'll make a Challenger next :D
        • 6 Years Ago
        If you want a four, the turbo Solstice or Sky, the Cobalt SS, HHR SS or a used SRT4 would probably be on the bottom of the list of cars I would recommend.

        If you want a tasty four, go Subaru. The award-winning 2.5 turbocharged boxer engine is a much better and more growly way to go.

        Though, there are plenty of other non-American options, too...

        An HHR??
        • 6 Years Ago
        I fail to see why someone else wanting a 4 takes away from you wanting an 8. Are they mutually exclusive?

        I think GM should build an Ecotec 2.0L turbo Camaro, even though it won't sell well. A few people will buy them and overboost the hell out of them (something you can't do easily with a NA V6) and give GM's 4 bangers a good name.
      • 6 Years Ago
      News about News that will be coming out very soon seems.
      Well you know.

      Anyway I rather have news about the new TF2 that will be coming out in 09.
      • 6 Years Ago
      This car jumped the shark before it was even released....

      Between the Camaro and the Volt, GM's PR machine has been mighty busy lately. And you STILL can't buy either!
        • 6 Years Ago
        This isn't PR. There's no public announcement, an enthusiast site got the info that was intended for dealers and published it.

        There is no way to not tell the dealers about the car, and GM can't stop enthusiast sites from reporting on it. So in short, the only solution to you getting too much information about the Camaro is for you to stop reading sites that are seeking out the info and bringing it to you.
      • 6 Years Ago
      HELLO????? This is an automotive enthusiast website. If you dont like seeing all the info here, get lost. Ten years ago, none of this information was readily available and now everyone is complaining about too much? Sure some of it is repetitive, but I'm pretty sure I can seperate what I have seen from what I havent, without whining about it everyday.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Agreeeeeed. I don't care at all about that Hyundai "luxury" sedan that everyone kept talking about but it didn't make me angry or annoyed that people were talking about it.

        It's like... Get over it. People want to hear about this car.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I think for some posters, its the only way they can have their voice heard. No one will allow it at work or at home, so this is their place to vent. If you could take away all the negative posts that are simply here to infuriate, maybe we could get some useful insight to what people are thinking.
        • 6 Years Ago
        This was not an announcement, and the event will not be an announcement.

        GM told dealers when to tune into the satellite to get launch and ordering info. Then someone posted the info to a site and you read about it.

        That's the whole story.

        Don't like it? You're the final link in the chain there, it's easy to break it by not reading about it.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I see this Camaro, and all I see is crap
