The Camaro IS going to Lansing.

Im not sure if anyone has thought of the history of Camaros.
67-69 3 years
70-81 lasted for 11 years with a few changes on the way
82-92 lasted 10 years with a few changes
93-02 lasted 9 years with a fairly big change in 97-98 but still kept the basic body.
10-13. Its only been 3 years.
I would think its just time for a minor change and a few more years of the same body.
Just my two cents

So when is the alpha platform going to be used? Because that will be a different car. Not a refresh but a new modeled camaro.

It's actually 4 years. Model years '10, '11, '12 and '13 with a '14 refresh and '15 final year. Camaro production will shift to Lansing some time in 2015, probably for the '16 model year.

2015-ish.

Exactly! And that 2016 will be an alpha platformed new modeled camaro. Totally revamped.

So, the current Camaro will have had a nice 6-year run. That's just about perfect, IMO. Long enough so that no one who wants one should be complaining that it wasn't available long enough. But not so long as to get stale.

The interesting thing about this generation is that it's design has been around since 2006 in the form of the concept car...So as far as looks and "oldness" go - it'll be 9 years old if by 2015 it's a new generation. Not to shabby considering I still drool over them when I see one.

I don't understand why anyone is questioning the timing of the 6th gen. It's been officially stated that Camaro production is moving to Lansing and we know it will be late 2015. They will not be building a Zeta car at a factory that produces Alpha vehicles. Period. End of discussion.

I bet you just peek in the windows and look at the floor mats. Do you keep a chamois on you so that you can wipe up their window when you're done?
