Despite an auto market that was down more than 34 percent last month, Chevrolet is having a difficult time keeping up with Camaro demand. As such, General Motors announced on Wednesday that it will be boosting production at the Camaro's Oshawa, Ontario plant.

The new Camaro, which officially hit the market last most, has seen strong initial demand with dealer orders piling up. Chevy dealers sold 614 Camaros last month, with more than 15,000 dealer orders yet to be fulfilled, according to The Detroit News.

"We can't build them fast enough," GM spokesman Chris Lee told The Detroit News.

In order to meet the high demand, GM has added a week of production the Oshawa plant and will also use some overtime.

Despite its early success, the Camaro has already hit a snag - a recall involving 300 SS models.
