No, Chevrolet Camaro Production Hasn’t Ended Yet

The end may be in sight, but it’s not yet upon the Chevy Camaro.

The Chevrolet Camaro is on its way out after losing ground to the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger, leaving it a forgotten, if capable also-ran. Its end is rapidly approaching, and according to one report actually came early—today, if the news is to be believed. But GM's pony car still has a few more sunsets to stare into, as GM has denied a rumor of the Camaro's early termination.

The report that Chevy would kill the Camaro early came from Road & Track, which reported that the final convertible was built back on November 22, and that the coupe's final production day had been moved up from January 2024. Specifically, it was to be built today; December 7, 2023, a date that would live in infamy. If it were true, which GM says it isn't.

"We are still working toward the conclusion of sixth-generation Camaro production, and I can't disclose details. I will say tomorrow is not the final day though," a Chevrolet spokesperson told The Drive on Wednesday, December 6.

So, the Camaro may be sticking around into next month as originally planned, though it's still going away (again) after almost 58 years. Or at least dormant, as GM has hinted on multiple occasions that the Camaro could evolve in the era of electrification. To quote what Chevy said in March, "this is not the end of Camaro's story."

One possibility is that the Camaro could be rebooted as a Cam-e-ro on the Ultium platform, as hinted in an early teaser suggesting possibilities for GM's one-size-fits-all EV architecture. Another, less exciting prospect is that it could mirror the Ford Mustang Mach-E, and become a brand name to slap on an electric crossover. GM has the electric SUV market covered better than most automakers though, so there's no obvious room for a Camaro Cross or what have you. All we can hope for is that whatever's coming has two doors and the means to crack seven minutes at the Nürburgring.
