The classic all-American four-seat performance coupe. A convertible is also a certainty. The sixth-generation model will draw inspiration from the Euro-styled second-gen Camaro RS (1970–1981).
Today's model has thrived as a roomier, more affordable alternative to the Corvette, and as a source of pride to the haters of Ford, Dodge, and imported rear-drive coupes.
The Camaro moves to GM's Alpha component set (Cadillac ATS and other future GM models) to save significant weight and cost.
POWERTRAIN: Expect eight-, six-, and four-cylinder offerings, the last to fulfill rising mpg obligations while fighting a growing list of four-cylinder-equipped foes, including the SRT Barracuda, Subaru BRZ, Scion FR-S, Ford Mustang, and Hyundai Genesis Coupe.
WHAT MIGHT GO WRONG: GM designers could misinterpret Camaro's thin sales lead over Mustang and neglect critically needed interior upgrades.
ESTIMATED ARRIVAL AND PRICE: Late 2015 as a 2016 model, with a base price in the mid-$20,000 range.
