Next year’s not going to be the easiest for those who venerate American performance cars. Stellantis has already announced that the Hemi-powered Challenger and Charger will sunset at Dodge with the 2024 models. Chevrolet has now added the sixth-generation version of the Chevrolet Camaro to the chopping block, with its disclosure that the model will leave the lineup after the final examples are produced late next January at the Lansing Grand River Assembly Plant in Michigan. If you’re a Chevy fan, this is depressing news but hold on, because there’s more.
While full details are still forthcoming, Chevrolet has announced a sendoff for its longtime Mustang-fighter that ought to leave car collectors in a very good place. Chevrolet will be marking this milestone in its performance heritage by offering a Collector’s Edition of the 2024 Camaro SS and RS, with a very limited and exclusive number of Camaros with the ultra ZL1 package also to be so equipped. What Chevrolet’s saying right now is that the Collector’s Edition will salute the entire history of Camaro, which will incorporate the car’s original project name when it was under development by General Motors and originally supposed to be known as the Chevrolet Panther. Stay tuned for details.
One thought on “Instant collectible: the final sixth-generation Camaro”
We are witness to the end of an era. Not like we saw in the 1980s, when we thought the Muscle Car had died. They somehow came back to life, as strong as never seen before. But now it is over, the movement, probably the longest trend in the history of the auto industry, has come to an end. It was a thrilling ride indeed.
