It's very strange, when I think about it from a personal standpoint....I really do love the color blue...a medium-to-dark blue being my favorite. Yet, I don't foresee myself ever buying it on a car. And I don't really know why.

Yep. The new Colorado has what appears to be a nice blue coming. (No real pics have been shown yet). The new Silverado has a great blue as well. I would like to see it in person but from the pics it looks great.

That's interesting that though you do love a particular shade of blue, you don't envision yourself buying it on a car. It could be that you have another favorite color that supercedes it **cough**

So is there that much politicking within the GM suits to have certain colors being approved from year to year? I think they missed out on rare opportunity to see how well a medium blue could be successful with the Kinetic Blue color. I think they could have sold AT LEAST another 50 units without the Hot Wheels package

In your opinion, what would it take get another color similar to it to come out for the Camaro?

Actually, blue is far and away my favorite color...I just view cars with a more mechanical, space-age vision...and thusly silver helps make the car look more machined and precise in my eyes.


Anyways, I think it's less politicking, and more about clever engineering/manufacturing work arounds. I can tell you that without the Camaro, Oshawa would probably never re-configure the paint shop so often like it does now for special cars and general color changes...

My bet is that the colors that Chevy deems "low volume" will be forever restricted to special editions. Because of three reasons:

1) The most obvious: low volume, limited run. Remember - the issue long term is having the paint literally spoil in the hoppers and wasting money/efficiency. So if you only plan to make so many, that is no longer an issue.

2) The next-generation car is going to be built alongside Cadillacs and will have to share painting resources. Bright, shocking colors like Synergy Green are not exactly Cadillac's thing...but ATS has a nice mid-dark blue that might find its way onto Camaro. Maybe?

3) By putting "wow" colors on special edition cars, it both makes the cars "special" besides some stickers, and allows them to say: Want a bright blue? We put it on the Hot Wheels car!

Ultimately - I do know they constantly re-evaluate, and aren't snubbing the requests for varying colors, especially blue...they read these messages, they hear you, they understand what enthusiasts are asking for. But ultimately, our desires are factored into production decisions alongside many others.

This. No more darker blues. I posted the following link in the paint colors thread to show what I think would be perfect.

Honestly, I would rather have a Dark Green. The new Rainforst Green on the Cruze's is a good color. Maybe just a hair lighter than that.

GM defnitely needs to bring back a good looking medium blue color. The Saphire Blue of Porsche would look so amazing on a camaro.

I cant understand how we can get so much different kinds of red, but only one (imho way too dark) blue

I will not pretend to have knowledge on the painting set-up's of modern car factories, but can't they change colors each time a car come's to the spray booth? I would love to see some favored colors that are called for by the car enthusiast's to have some special limited runs every year. Imagine if there were maybe a 3000 limited run of special colors (nice blue, greens, and golds) for a particular model year. Talk about desirability and collectible!

I want them to offer blue, so the sales can suck again, and everyone will get over it.

Except for those that don't read these kind of threads and are noobs, then the whole process starts over again.

Exactly...I'll get one, and I'll love it, and so will everyone else, but nobody will be able to get one so I will feel special once again!

Except even if the blue 6th gen is a miserable sales failure, people will still complain when GM axes the paint color.

But why the hell not. If a few early 6th gens get sold because of a blue paint color, so be it.
