They do need to widen the colour choices and bring back some of the old favourties.
My suggestions would be

Red Hot red - but tri coat it with red primer and red clearcoat to deepen it a bit
Deep Red Metallic - shade the flakes light red or orange
Hugger Orange - the classic that should have never gone away
Bumblebee Yellow - to much of an icon now due to the movie
Synergy Green
Lime rock/British racing green Metallic
Marine Blue Metallic - the classic from Gen 1
Imperial Blue/Blue Ray Metallic - preferably Imperial just a nice deeper blue shade
Magenta/Purple - seems they have picked it for the 2015 so might as well keep it
Black - classic and always understated
New black Metallic - big flake to make it stand out, shade the flakes indigo or violet.
Deep Cyber gray/Silver
Gold - deep gold not a soft "olympic medal" gold
Summit White - i remember this one from a buick my dad drove when i was a kid.
Pearl White - The Cadillac version looks rich and deep so copy it over to the Camaro line

They need to offer some accent stripe packages as well

The Standard Rally stripe in White Black Gray Red and Blue
A Synergy Stripe in White Black and Red
The Hockey stick in all colours
The Horizontal Hood Stripe in White Black Red and Silver

A yellow similar to millennium yellow back on the 00s Vettes
Grey has been popular lately, so put in a nice deep grey as well.

And then the standard barrage of non-metallic/pearl colors: White, Red, Black.

I agree with ALL of what you said.

Blue! I would like my next sports car to be blue... thinking something between Ford's Deep Impact Blue and Pontiac's Stryker Blue.

^ What Chain_Blue said with emphasis on metallic black, deep red metallic, and a revamp of Cyber Gray Metallic. I am biased with my current, but damn it looks good.
