The end of the cult car: Chevrolet will soon end production of the sixth generation Camaro. But fans can still hope.
Chevrolet will release the last models of the sixth-generation Camaro muscle car in January 2024. So the Americans draw a temporary line under the series after a production period of nine years – after almost 60 years of construction. The first generation sports car rolled off the assembly line in 1966, with a six-cylinder engine and an inline V8. In the summer there will be a final release with a Collector’s Edition package in the USA.
But fans can breathe a sigh of relief: the imminent suspension of production will not mark the end of the Camaro model name, as Chevrolet has officially announced. The Americans leave it open when and how the successor will be presented. Apparently, the American automaker wants to take its time with the new Camaro, which will likely be powered by electric instead of V8 engines.
Unfortunately, the hiatus is not the only one in the Camaro’s history: Chevrolet stopped producing the fourth generation as early as 2002 due to declining sales figures. The fifth, current version came to the market in 2009, and then in 2015 the sixth.
