That is some seriously disappointing s**t

seriously, is it that hard to offer an SS in a color that you are already producing the car in?

Which blue are we referring to?

Imperial Blue Metallic


Aqua Blue Metallic


I love Imperial Blue Metallic, and that's my first choice. I'd love an RS/SS in Imperial Blue. Not a big fan of Aqua, but I'm withholding final judgement until I see one in person.

EDIT: I just checked the ordering guide, and neither of the above blue options appear to be available on the SS.

I think this is a huge oversight on GM's part. Metallic blue is the best!

Chris is right.
We have to convince GM to offer the Imperial Blue on the SS. That's our only choice right now.

I originally wanted blue. something pretty much exactly like how the IBM is rendered on the color selector at Chevy's site. Im now leaning towards summit white whenever that hits dealers. that said i am very dissapointed there is no blue for the SS. it literally makes no sense, theres enough people who want it and maybe i might fall in love with IBM again once i see it in person and might want that instead of white. I'd like to have the option. Please GM offer blue on the SS

Why in the world would they not offer blue on the SS? That makes no sense! I'm not buying a 10, maybe an 11, so I guess I don't have a dog in this fight.

I bet they realized no one would buy that dogsh!t blue they are offering on the V6 when ponying up for the SS.

Blue is a hard enough sell as it is...they need to figure it out. I can't imagine what kind of 'consumer' survey's they use to come up with some of these colors, but it might not hurt to try to sell what the majority of people want when it comes to basic choices.

Build what people want, you may claw your way out of this impending financial fiasco.

I'd like to see Imperial Blue or Jetstream Blue on the SS. I don't know if it's a deal breaker because I was prolly going with red anyway but I was going to give the Imperial Blue a look. If Jetstream blue was offered I'd really have a difficult decision.

The Camaro is a muscle car. A vibrant, true blue is a muscle car color.

Aqua Blue Metallic (I'm thinking Teal, like mid 90's Chevy Cavaliers) I don't think will work on the SS.

Blues explained for people at GM:

Aqua Blue Metallic:



Cheap @$$ Cavalier Blue Metallic:



I'm really hoping there's no similarity other than the fact that the cgi drawing happens to look like the color in the photo of the Cavalier.

I know there was also "Teal" offered on the 3rd Gen Camaros, and early 4th gens, turning to a darker color later on. But I think we're asking for more of a Jetstream Blue / Medium Quasar Blue. Something with pop. No confusion with green, and not navy blue like Grandma's old recliner and/or new Toyota Camry.

Actually, if Navy Blue Metallic is all we can have, I guess I'd be okay.

Just not:



or

The rendering from chevy's site are nowhere near what the colors look like in real life. Check out the Indy pics to see them on real cars. Aqua blue is nothing like Cavalier teal, and Imp blue is much darker, almost black when the light isn't hitting it directly.

I am rethinking my whole order now that I can't get my blue Camaro

aqua blue from the real life pics looks pretty awesome.

imperial blue is pretty freaking dull if you ask me.

My 08 cobalt is that color and Its nothing special.

Lame. I guess I'll be waiting another year for a blue to come out if GM even exists then.
