The "B" is for Bummer...

"Despite the fact that GM Chairman Rick Wagoner originally said the 2010 Camaro would be "virtually identical" to designer Sangyup Lee's concept that debuted at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show, Lutz confirmed that the production Camaro will in fact have a B-pillar, making it a standard coupe instead of a traditional hardtop coupe.

Lutz said the standard coupe structure is necessary to keep production costs down and ensure the Camaro's frame is as light and tight and possible.

The same fate is true for the Dodge Challenger. The Challenger concept was also presented as a hardtop coupe in 2006, but the 2008 production version will be a standard coupe when it goes on sale next spring."

Wonder what that's going to look like...

Re: The "B" is for Bummer...

And so it begins...Did anyone really think the production version would look much like the concept?

Re: The "B" is for Bummer...

yeah, I'm disappointed about the rear side windows as well, now it will be fixed like the Mustang. Overall the body lines and design will be very much like the concept.

That won't keep me from taking one home though

My neighbor, the Chevrolet salesman, tells me that Side curtain air bags will be mandatory on all cars soon. According to him that is why the Pontiacs are retractable hardtops and he expects the Camaro to be the same. He says nothing is getting redesigned or a new design as a soft top.

Jeff - most 'salesmen' out there haven't a clue what is coming in a few months, much less in a few years. I wouldn't give info like that much juice
