Naked Camaro Hits the Web

The Camaro has had spy photographers up its tailpipe ever since GM announced that they were thinking, maybe, about possibly perhaps building a new Camaro. And although we've seen some pretty good shots before, GM is now running undisguised prototypes around so you can get a complete view of what the Camaro looks like. Can you really call them spy pictures when GM is asking to have the pictures taken? Instead, maybe we'll call them "pre-press kit photos" because they're taken before GM invites over the professional studio photographers and then rubs oil all over the car and puts up those funny silver umbrellas. Aside from the horrific watermarks involved, there's a downside to documenting every step of the testing process and showing people the car before it's actually good to go (the Flex effect). Even though the development time line for the Camaro has been reasonably quick, it seems like we've been waiting since Burt Reynolds' first face lift for the new Camaro to hit the showroom floor. Anyway, to quote Three Dog Night, a child is black, a child is white, it turns by day, and then by night.

    No they don’t. The price at the local dealers has dropped from $225,000 to $175,000 over the past six months. I think $175,000 is around the original sticker price for a Ford GT.

    NickR : March 11th, 2008 at 1:21 pm Considering lightly used GTs still go for sticker No they don’t. The price at the local dealers has dropped from $225,000 to $175,000 over the past six months. I believe the Ford GT's MSRP was $102,000. $175,000 is still quite a bit over MSRP. Dealers aren't exactly giving them away. Besides, as long as they have one in their showroom, it helps keep customers in the showroom. While they drool over the GT, the salesman has additional time to work on selling them a Mustang.
