Less than a day before the new 2016 Camaro’s big debut, CNBC’s Squawk Box program leaked an image of a pair of them Friday morning. Someone who happened to be watching snapped a screen shot and put it up on GM Inside News. There’s even a CNBC first test drive video posted on Yahoo!.
Earlier we posted about the sixth-generation’s big debut coming up Saturday in Detroit. Chevy says more than 1,000 people are expected at the party tomorrow on Detroit’s scenic Belle Isle. Hundreds of those attending will be Camaro enthusiasts who are bringing their cars – from 35 States and Canada. Spots for the event filled up within hours after Chevy opened the RSVP list to the public. In fact, so many fans wanted in on this 2,400 enthusiasts are still on a waiting list.
“The response really speaks to the passion owners have for Camaro,” said Todd Christensen, Camaro marketing manager. “I wish we could accommodate more people on Belle Isle, but we are limited by space for the reveal itself. For those fans on the wait list, Chevrolet will send them an exclusive sneak-preview of the new Camaro just before the rest of the world sees it at the reveal.”
The day-long Camaro celebration begins Saturday May 16 at 8:30 a.m. with a caravan of more than 350 Camaros around the Chevrolet Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix course. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. enthusiasts can tour a museum of historic Camaro models, ride in a Camaro Z/28 hot lap around the race course, and drive many current Chevrolet products.
