General Motors is discontinuing the Chevy Camaro.

They announced they’re discontinuing it after the 2024 model because sales have dropped. The last one will roll off the production line next January.

The original Camaro came out in 1966, so it’s been around almost 60 years. And this isn’t the first time they’ve stopped making it. They did stop for a while in 2003, before relaunching the brand in 2010.

The good news is it sounds like that could be in the cards this time too, and it might just be another temporary pause.

In a press release, Chevy said they’re not announcing a successor but, “this is not the end of Camaro’s story.” Now people are speculating they might relaunch it as an electric car.
