Camaro wasn’t built in a generation.
Each innovation has been the starting point for the next.
Every milestone a green light for another.
The fittest arrived, and this its journey.

Designed and manufactured in Detroit, rumours of Chevrolet releasing it’s own sports car began in the mid-sixties when the Camaro was only known by it’s code name – Panther. Initially released to take on the Ford Mustang in 1967, Chevrolet told many members of the press that Camaro meant “a small, vicious animal that ate Mustangs!” And ate it did. The 1967 Camaro achieved 220,906 sales within it’s first year!
Over the course of five generations, the Chevrolet Camaro has become a staple in the driveways and garages of sports car fanatics and Chevy lovers, alike. Despite notable changes since the 1967, Chevrolet has maintained (and perhaps enhanced) the performance and legendary status of the Camaro.
Celebrate the Camaro with us this year! Take a look back at where it all began and see where the road is leading us. It may be hard to believe, but there are far better things ahead.
