Chevrolet has officially announced the end of the Camaro’s run after the 2024 model year. After that the nameplate will go into hiatus, despite Chevy saying that it’s “not the end of the Camaro’s story.” As a tribute, The Bowtie Brand released a short 1-minute video that pays homage to the sixth-generation muscle car and all of its variations released over the years. And as a send-off, Chevrolet has officially announced an upcoming 2024 Camaro Collector’s Edition, with full details coming this summer.
Since 2019, MC&T was first to report that the sixth-generation Camaro would depart after the 2024 model year, that there wouldn’t be a sixth-gen Z/28, and that Chevrolet would offer a final Collector’s Edition as a sendoff. All of which proved to be 100 percent accurate.
2024 Chevrolet Camaro Send-Off: Details
The video titled “Sixth-Generation Camaro – One More Ride” already says plenty about what the video will imply. After a montage of sixth-gen Camaro milestones, the video concludes with teaser images of the 2024 Chevrolet Camaro Collector’s Edition, which will tie-in the original car’s codename from the 1960’s: Panther. We immediately see it in the “R” of the “CAMARO” fender badge in the video, but there’s likely more tie-ins than that. Just don’t expect any powertrain upgrades.
Coupling with the end of production for the Chevrolet Camaro, the Collector’s Edition won’t be the only epic send-off from General Motors. The Garage 56 race car will turn some heads and make an epic stand around the track at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race this year, paying homage to 9 years of Camaro Six.
The Chevrolet Camaro debuted in 2015 as a 2016 model year vehicle. Its debut was a high-budget production that took place on Belle Isle, Detroit, where Camaro fans the world over could attend. Even GM CEO Mary Barra as in attendance, along with scores of media. Eventually, said media were allowed to drive prototypes of the Camaro Six around the Belle Isle IndyCar road course. Infamously, one was crashed by Patrick George. Today, he does freelance reporting and writes about how “gas bans work.” Never forget.
