Automaker bids farewell to Camaro, as Chevy announces collector’s edition
Something weird is happening in the car world. There’s a peculiar convergence as we say farewell to some treasured models. First the DBS, then V12 Wraith, then the Dodge Challenger, now it’s the Chevy Camaro’s turn.
Chevrolet is retiring the sixth-gen Camaro, after almost a decade on the market in this particular guise, at the end of 2024.
Described as “a small vicious animal that eats Mustangs”, the Camaro rose to fame in the ‘60s as a Ford Mustang rival. Early 1970s racing successes would pave the way for a glorious career in a number of global racing series, including NASCAR, IMSA GT Series and various hot rod series, to name but a few.
To commemorate the event, Chevy is adding a Collector’s Edition package to the 2024 Camaro RS and SS, and on a finite number of ZL1 cars in North America.
Paying homage to the model, there’ll be more info on the Collector’s Edition before orders start later in 2023, though Chevy has revealed that it wll ‘resurface ties that date back to the development of the first-gen’.
Codenamed ‘Panther’, global automotive industry watchers are curious to see what will be revealed.The Camaro is no ordinary car, having earned its stripes as a cultural icon with various media appearances too.
