If they were so great, they would still be in production.
Dead wrong, Flight152.
There were several factors contributing to the death of the F-bodies, and the fault all leads to management at GM
, and how they let the F-body family die.
First of all, let's take a look at the Camaro. The Camaro produced in 2002 (it's last year, for now) was basically the same Camaro that was produced in 1993, only with different headlights and an LS1 (in Z28 models) rather than the old LT1. That's it basically......9 entire years and no change.
By '97 or so, GM
saw all the hints that fans wanted a newer Camaro.
All they did was change the headlights, and upgrade the LT1 to an LS1. It was enough to satisfy continued production of the Camaro for the next years, but GM
seemed to ignore the FACT that sales began to constantly decline by the year.
And they knew why......their complete lack of effort to actually make a new Camaro.
People were getting tired of the same car...........and this would happen with any car if the manufacturor produced it the same way for a decade.
For a reason only God knows, they let this problem slide all the way until 2002, until sales were too low to satisfy production for the future. During the time period when this all happened, 1993-2002......Ford had gone threw 2-3 generations of Mustangs. Do the math......
What is the main point here?
The Camaro didn't die because it's a bad car.
It's one of the best sports cars you could ever get for around $20K, and it still is. Production stopped because of bad management at GM
, it's VERY obvious.
Remarks like "If they were so great, they would still be in production" mean that you are completely ignorant about GM
, the Camaro, and the F-body family in general.
Maybe you should wait until you actually know what you are talking about before you spout off again.
