As for the future of the Chevrolet Camaro nameplate, the current sixth-generation model is slated to continue on until the end of its regular lifecycle, which is scheduled to sunset at the end of the 2023 model year. What happens after that point is currently unclear. Although the Camaro is undoubtedly one of the most iconic nameplates in the history of American performance, a new generation is not currently in the works, at least not in the form we’re used to seeing for Camaro. It’s possible that General Motors will reintroduce Camaro as a new high-performance electric vehicle, which will likely irk the purists, but falls in line with the automaker’s overarching move towards the all-electric segment.
