We've seen the Camaro coupe
concepts over the past two years at venues like the Detroit and Chicago auto shows
. A stunning yellow Camaro also had the starring role on the biggest Hollywood blockbuster
of 2007. We're even getting "spy shots
" of the production Camaro taken by General Motors
engineers that are posted on the GM
Fast Lane blog. What we won't see any time soon is a production Camaro being unveiled during 2008. Kicking Tires quotes Chevy
execs as saying that the company wants to avoid overexposure when production is still a year away. The General also wants to get the concept car
to less prominent show sites like Houston and Cleveland, and there aren't many hand-made models to spread out across the country.
Since this is the third year in a row that at least one Camaro concept has been shown at the Detroit show, the crowd gathering around the Mustang
fighter has gotten decidedly smaller. We're thinking the reason for that is because the public is now ready for the production model, but since a salable model is still a year away, the General is smart to hold off until the iconic pony car is closer to dealer
lots. Besides, if we get a new picture from GM every week or two, it'll more than curb our cravings for bow-tie pony power for the time being.
