Pay Tribute to the Iconic Golden Bow Tie Muscle Car
Chevrolet presented the last-ever Camaro in Lansing, Michigan, lately, Road & Track reported. Manufacturing originally was meant to continue up until 2024 but closed down ahead of schedule this week.
“The Camaro is a car that has been embraced with great passion,” a Chevy spokesperson commented in a statement to the publication. “It has captivated fans all over the world and has been a mainstay in Chevrolet dealerships for decades. The sixth generation of the Camaro was particularly known for its athletic prowess and composed demeanor – it exuded confidence while driving and commanded respect on the track.”
Chevrolet divulged the termination of the Camaro last March. To commemorate its legacy, the marque has crafted the Camaro Collector’s Edition, consisting exclusively of 350 copies in Panther Black finish.
Chevy may not have announced a direct successor to the Camaro, but they did assure fans that “This is not the end of Camaro’s story.” Fans of the iconic vehicle will remember that it was discontinued in 2002 before making a triumphant return in 2010 as the fifth-gen iteration. The sixth-gen Camaro arrived in 2016, and while it may be coming to an end, the future of the Camaro is still uncertain.
It looks like the dawn of electrification has arrived for the corporate world, and its impact on the auto industry is becoming increasingly evident. So, it would not be a shock at all to see Chevrolet’s Camaro jumping on the electrification bandwagon soon, if all else remains unchanged. For the present time though, the famedCamarobrand has taken a small breather– with the Chevy Corvette being the lone performer left in the brand’s high-performance roster.
The time has come to bid farewell to the Chevrolet Camaro in the muscle car realm, together with its long-standing adversary, the Challenger. Speculations imply that this Challenger will be restyled as an all-electric powerhouse, boasting 885 horsepower. Yet, Dodge may present a petrol-driven substitute for those not prepared to adopt the electric format yet.
Meanwhile, Ford is experiencing success in this segment with its most current S650 Mustang generation. They provide several options, such as race-only models like the GT3 that will be making a debut at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2021. Ford has denied rumours that the present model will be discontinued by 2028; this Blue Oval pony car appears here to stay for the foreseeable future.
