Whether it is picking up awards for on-road performance, or race wins and championships at tracks across the world, Camaro has demonstrated Chevrolet’s ability to win in the most demanding environments.
“As we prepare to say goodbye to the current-generation Camaro, it is difficult to overstate our gratitude to every Camaro customer, Camaro assembly line employee, and race fan,” Scott Bell, vice president, Global Chevrolet, says. “While we are not announcing an immediate successor today, rest assured, this is not the end of Camaro’s story.”
Chevrolet will celebrate this storied nameplate with the addition of the Collector’s Edition package on the ’24 Camaro RS and SS, and on a limited number of ZL1-equipped cars available in North America. The Collector’s Edition pays homage to Camaro, resurfacing ties that date back to the development of the first-gen Camaro in the ’60s, most notably the program’s initial code name: Panther.
More information on the ’24 Camaro line and Collector’s Edition package will be available closer to the start of orders summer 2023.Performance has always been and will continue to be an integral part of Chevrolet’s DNA. From Corvette to Colorado and Silverado ZR2, to Tahoe RST and Blazer EV SS1, the brand will continue to offer a range of exhilarating vehicles for the street, the track, and off-road.
Chevrolet campaigns the sixth-gen Camaro in a variety of series, including NASCAR, IMSA, SRO, NHRA, and the Supercars Championship. Camaro will continue to compete on track, working with motorsports sanctioning bodies to ensure Chevrolet’s presence in racing moving forward.
“Chevrolet’s products and our relationship with our customers benefit from motorsports,” Jim Campbell, Chevrolet U.S. vice president, Performance and Motorsports, says. “Our plan is to continue to compete and win at the highest levels of auto racing.”
