The latest generation of the Chevrolet Camaro has ended after two generations and nearly a million sales in the United States alone from 2009 to 2023. On November 22, the final sixth-generation Camaro convertible flexed its fabric roof as it drove out of the Lansing Grand River plant.
The final Camaro coupe left the assembly plant on December 14 without a gold watch or a retirement party from the automaker. Chevy confirmed the information and issued a prepared statement stating in part, “Camaro is a passion product… It has a global fan base and has brought people into Chevrolet dealerships for generations. The sixth generation was known for its athleticism and poise, exuding confidence on the road and dominance on the track.”
When the fourth-generation Camaro was discontinued in 2002, fans had to wait seven years for the pony car to return. For now, all we have is GM’s assurance that the Camaro’s show will continue, but we have no idea when.
Until then, Chevrolet stated that the name would continue to be used in racing series such as NASCAR, IMSA, SRO, NHRA, and the Australian Supercars Championship. The Camaro configurator is still available for strolls down memory lane, and the $14,995 Camaro Collector’s Edition Package is a viable option. It is, indeed, a $90,000 Camaro. However, it is the last $90,000 Camaro.
