    I heard that they stopped making them. Are they redesigning? Or is it gone for good?

    :rolleyes:

    They would have sold a shitload more if they had actually advertised for them, camaro z28 was the best bang for your buck (straight line speedwise) out there by far but for some reason GM let ford just completely dominate the pony car market (sales wise), the only reason they made it to 2002 was some UAW contract or some shit :sad2:

    Hopefully we'll see them back in another few years with an ls2 in it, rwd, kicking ass as ever :bigthumb: :x:

    general motors didn't give 2 shits about the f-body because the market isn't there.

    all general motors cares about is SUV's and their cars have suffered. I mean... obviously there is a market for muscle cars, see mustang, but f-body sales sucked tidewater.

    General Motors killed the f-body, everybody knows it, and until you "purists" admit that, and require General Motors to build you a decent camaro... I mean come on! How can their be a market for the mustang, and yet their is no market for the camaro/firebird. General motors under managed, under marketed, under built, and under developed those cars.

    I can be quoted making fun of trailerparks and denial of truth, never did I mention mullets. Nor rednecks (although that has yet to mentioned)

    They killed it because the Mustang was killing it in sales. The reason for that is that all in all, the Mustang was a nicer car to drive as a daily driver.

    There's no market out there? I can't even begin to count the number of mustangs I see on the road on a daily basis. If anything sales in that market segment are increasing. GM could have easily gotten a share of that market with a half-assed ad campaign (as opposed to none), but yes they killed the f-body because it didn't sell well (gee I wonder why...).

    And what the hell do you mean by decent camaro? How many 20k$ cars are out there where you can get a 5.7l v8 with >300 rwhp from the factory and mid to low 13s stock? Oh thats right, none!

    You can't simply sum up the failure of the recent f-body to marketing. Lets face it.... if you are in anyway interested in a a performance car, you know about camaros. PERIOD. So they didn't market it? Big deal. I bet you everybody who bought either a f-body or mustang in the last 5 years (whom hadn't already devoted themselves as a purist of one model or the other) had checked out, researched, and test driven both cars.
