I finally put off getting a 2013 so I can do a refi on the house and get a few things done around the house (painting, etc). My goal is to see if a decent blue is offered for the 2014 or 2015. If not then I may end up moving on to a competitor. I understand about GM not wanting to do "unpopular" colours. Hyundai has certain colours only at certain trims and I passed on Genesis Coupe because I could not get both the blue I wanted and the accessories I wanted.

Hopefully something will be offered and I will be able to still order it in either December or January.

If I said it once...I've said it a million times.

Love my ABM....love that its a rare color....glad its MINE!!! I don't think its coming back, and I don't think it should.

But why GM won't make Kinetic Blue a regular color is just beyond me. Its freaking gorgeous. That said, if they do make it I'll probably sad that there is more beautiful blue out there and not just my car. lol

The color %'s are skewed due to availability.

If you look at DuPont popularity charts on their web site, light blue, much like jet stream blue is number two or three in Europe and Asia, behind silver and white, in North America it is near last. I agree ABM could and should have been lighter like jet stream blue, but we did not have any other choice, just happy that Chevy bent to pressure and allowed ABM on the SS, as it was to be V6 only.

..there, I fixed that for you....and I agree 100%. That is a color reminiscent of the mulsane blue offered back in the day. It's a gorgeous medium blue, but....it's a one off designed for the '13 HW car only, and discontinued <currently>.

Autoweek has an article about the Indy pace car as a Laguna Blue Corvette, seen testing in Michigan test track, goes with the hotwheels Camaro Blue.
Mulssane Blue was lighter than Jetstream Blue, My 1970 Camaro was Mulsane Blue.

Although I love my cgm, the abm is the best color in my book

I considered Aqua blue. But the color sample they showed did not do the color justice, and the fact that GM did not offer any accessories in this color (splash guards, and painted engine cover), really just pushed me to red jewel. I still love every Aqua Blue I see.

I have a feeling that yours were painted after the fact. The engine cover was another one that didn't exist in Aqua blue.

I just felt that GM wanted to get rid of that color as they didn't bother to offer any accessories in Aqua blue.

You also couldn't get synergy green splash guards/quarter flares either.

Maybe this is a really dumb question, but how much does it cost a manufacturer to offer a few more colors? I've noticed the number of models that may offer no more than 5 or 6 color choices. These always include black, white, silver, grey and usually 1 or 2 other dull hues. At least in higher profile models like our Camaros, they offer a few more. I'm not knocking the more conservative colors....my garage includes silver, black and white, but it would be nice to have more options, like the Aqua Blue.

Why was this thread moved to Camaro6 over 2 years later? We already got Hyper Blue.
