At Long Last, GM Presents: 2010 Chevrolet Camaro

July 21, 2008
Today's the day GM officially shows off its newest musclecar, the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro.

As is the game these days, a few favored places got some official information and photos before today's official reveal of the car--the usual buff books who need lead times to generate dead-tree pages. A few blogs--starting with Car Tribe, and aided and abetted by Camaro5, Autoblog, and Jalopnik--blew the covers off the pics early last week, putting another nail in the coffin of artificially constructed embargoes.

So without all the fanfare GM had intended, the Camaro is here in production form. You can get the full synopsis of what we know so far in our full review of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, but before you go, some basics from the GM newser held today:
