    I've seen the older Bumblebee Camaro called a '74, '76, and '77 in many threads.

    I've also seen the newer Bumblebee Camaro called an '08 and and '09 on here.

    What are the official manufacturer model years? LEt's end the debate right here and now. Also, what year were they called in the movie?

    '74 and '08, I'm pretty sure. Why people come up with all those other dates, well, I blame that on poor reading comprehension, the decline of our public school system, etc. :dunce

    New BB is an 09 concept model that hasn't even seen full production yet. There are only 4 in the world right now.

    yes, the auction and numerous auto sites that were covering the movie confirmed that the "classic" camaro is a 77. its kind of funny that he's called a "classic" camaro, since that car is anything but classic. its known as one of the worst cars to ever carry the camaro name.

    the newer bumblebee is a concept car, and doesnt really have an actual year attached to it, as there may be extensive changes to it before release.

    honestly, there arent that many differences in the body, which is the reason for the confusion. but the differences are there.

    but to be more exact, bumblebee is a 1977 camaro Z28 sport coupe with a customized hood to let the engine breathe better.

    you called?

    straight from the horses mouth, click on the "features" tab at the top, and scroll to the bottom:

    basically what I think confuses people is that the car is probably going to be for sale at the end of 08, but as an 09 model year. that's what manufacturers do, their "model year" can start as early as july.
