The electrification of cars It’s a huge benefit to the environment. However, it also leaves as a consequence that true icons of the automotive world say goodbye to us. General Motors (GM) announced that the last line of the historic Camaro will come out in 2024.
It’s the end of another one of the so-called Muscle Carafter the farewells of the Dodge Challenger and Charger (Toretto’s in Fast and Furious). That the Camaro is no longer manufactured is confirmation of a death foretold.
according to review Passion EngineGM had already said that the sixth generation of these cars – on hiatus for approximately three years – was not going to continue after 2026. However, they are advancing functions and announced that a Collector’s Edition line for Camaros will be launched in January 2024 RS and SS.
After this, the Chevrolet Camaro will be discontinued from the General Motors factory, located in the town of Lansing Grand River, in Michigan (United States).
Why is the Camaro an icon?
Well, because it has an incredible design and a power that, in its time, had no competition. That would be the simple and clear answer to qualify the Camaro. However, this characteristic made the sports car establish itself as a class vehicle represented in multiple aspects of popular culture.
The Camaro has six model generations throughout history. The first began to be manufactured in 1966. The first of its style were the Rally Sport (RS) and the Super Sport (SS). The latter had a powerful V8 engine, with which any lover of the motoring industry identifies.
He appeared on the big screen, countless numbers of times. One of the most remembered in our era is the 1977 edition (yellow with black stripes) in the Transformers saga.
Another one that became very popular is the Zl1 version that came out in 2012, emulated in a miniature version (both in black and blue) by the Hot Wheels toy brand. The red, low-profile, eighties and nineties versions that tried to compete with Ferrari are also unforgettable.
We especially highlight the 1985 Z28 IROC-Z versions and the 25th anniversary version, the 1992 RS.
