With the release of the consumer ordering guides, we now know for sure there is no blue available for SS. I know this was disappointing news for me.
The ONLY way this can change is to show there is a large enough consumer demand for it. Please, no rants, no death threats. Those of you who are ready to buy and want blue, speak up. We all know GM is reading this board for reaction.
I would absolutely say if you were ready to order, and are now considering changing your mind, to let your dealership know blue is a deal breaker for you.

I was on the fence about when to buy due to several factors but my car recently got destroyed by a drunk driver so I was leaning towards sooner rather than later in the year. That being said, if there is no Imperial blue then there is virtually no chance of me buying until it becomes an option. I love the Cyber gray color but that's the color of my current car so I think i'll pass on that. My plan was to get IBM with CG or white stripes.
*Footnote: The factors I was deciding on were Nav, HUD and most importantly a Z28.

Reason: Got my blues mixed up.
Terrible call on GM's part. ALL colors should be available. You can even get blue on a Z06 and ZR1 for heavens sake! I cannot for the life of me understand why GM limits colors like this when it is a NO COST item to them. All it does is p*ss people off when they can't get the color they want on the otherwise LOADED car when you CAN get the color on the base, no option car. Totally unacceptable. GM, offer the SS in ALL colors!
And cloth seats on a reduced cost 2SS w/ leather seats optional

I hate for my first post to be a complaint but... why is there no Blue color options on the SS? I was looking forward to buying a fully loaded Blue SS but now it is not possible. I hope that GM will reconsider this decision of not offering Blue on the SS models. If I am going to drop 35+ K on a car I am going to want the color I like on it. Sorry to rant but it's a bit disappointing is all.
Well that makes my color choice easier. I was trying to talk myself into Aqua Blue anyway. Now I won't have that remorse everytime I look in my driveway. Now the choice is Victory Red or Inferno Orange. Or do I get yet another black car. Probably not, really tired of black. Although the Camaro looks totally badass in black.

Doesn't make sense !! Why would it be available on the LT, and not the SS ?? They are the same freaking cars with different options !!!!
Anyhow, Being a Canadian, I couldn't even order anything now..... I would have even gone to my friends down south, but again thanks to GM brass, the dealers down south have been told not to sell to us.... Man this bites !!!!
I would like to know why they would choose to exclude blue from the SS lineup. Obviously it was a conscious decision, so there must be some logical explanation, either from a marketing perspective or otherwise. Rather than drawing attention to what IS an SS, they've chosen a color palette that says "I'm defintely NOT an SS." As somebody mentioned, I don't think it costs them any extra to do so, as we otherwise see with the extra-cost option of "Red Jewel Tintcoat." Pretty heinous that GM made this decision. All the leaked material points out that the SS is targeted at us- the enthusiasts. It said that enthusiasts like us would "seek out" the Camaro. So with that in mind, why would they limit our options? Because they can? I honestly can't make sense of this. Insert shocked and devastated smiley face guy.
Looks like I'll have to make an appointment to remove the blue from my Bowtie tattoo. Not kidding.
