So Long Camaros…


There aren’t many car names that have achieved lasting, global fame, and Chevrolet’s Camaro is unquestionably one of the greatest American muscle cars of all time. I am sorry to tell you that Chevrolet is discontinuing use of the Camaro nameplate, at least for the time being. There will be a gap in Chevrolet’s product lineup the size of a muscle car after the sixth-generation Camaro’s last collectors’ edition.

Chevrolet’s legendary muscle vehicle, which debuted in 1966, has seen six iterations of rear-wheel drive, two-door, nearly constant V8 availability. Since their introduction, cherry versions of the first and second generations of Camaros have drawn the attention of drag racers, collectors, and pro-touring drivers everywhere. However, the aesthetics and feel of the third and fourth generations of Camaros weren’t always kind during the 1980s and 1990s. To be fair, a lot of our favorite muscle vehicles suffered during that period, but the important thing is that Chevy revived it from 2002 to 2010.

The final Camaros will be sold as 2024 models, with the last units set to roll off General Motors’ Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant in Michigan in January 2024. The Collectors’ Edition will be available in North American markets only. Chevrolet has yet to specify what exactly will be offered in its final iteration, but it did say the Collectors’ Edition package will be available on RS, SS, and a limited number of ZL1 models.

“As we prepare to say goodbye to the current-generation Camaro, it is difficult to overstate our gratitude to every Camaro customer, Camaro assembly line employee, and race fan,” said Scott Bell, vice president of Global Cheverlot. “While we are not announcing an immediate successor today, rest assured, this is not the end of Camaro’s story.”

This is some pretty sad news for Camaro lovers, including myself. We will just to wait and see what they will do.
