Chevrolet has announced that it will discontinue the production of the Camaro after the 2024 model year. To commemorate the departure of the sixth-generation Camaro, Chevrolet will release a special Collector’s Edition with unique features and a paint colour inspired by the car’s original Panther code name.

Collectors edition

The Camaro ZL1 Collector’s Edition limited to 350 units, will come with a Panther Black Matte exterior paint, the first factory-offered matte paint for the Camaro. It will also feature a black metallic stripe, the front splitter and rear wing from the ZL1 1LE coupe, and red-painted callipers. The ZL1 Collector’s Edition will have a serialized steering wheel badge denoting its build sequence.




For the LT/RS, LT1, and SS trims, the Collector’s Edition will feature Panther Black Metallic Tintcoat paint with satin black accent stripes. It will come with 20-inch satin black wheels (polished forged wheels are optional), the front splitter from the 1LE package, and the rear spoiler from the ZL1. 

All Collector’s Edition Camaros will have Panther branding, including a panther incorporated into the “R” of the front script badging and the steering wheel badge. The interior will have a unique black colour scheme and special floor mats.


Buyers of the ZL1 Collector’s Edition will receive a Canfield Sport 44mm watch from Shinola with a serial number that matches their steering wheel badge. The watch will feature the Camaro logo on the watch face and a panther engraved on the watch band. All Collector’s Edition Camaro buyers will also receive a welcome kit.

Orders for the last Camaro will be accepted starting on June 15, with the Collector’s Edition becoming available in late summer. 

The pricing for the Collector’s Edition models is as follows:

  • 1LT Collector’s Edition with RS pack: Starting at $39,440 (coupe, including destination charge)
  • LT1 Collector’s Edition with RS pack: Starting at $47,385 (coupe, including destination charge)
  • 1SS Collector’s Edition: Starting at $49,890 (coupe, including destination charge)
  • ZL1 Collector’s Edition: Starting at $88,690 (coupe, excluding gas guzzler tax)


The above prices do not include the gas guzzler tax for the ZL1 model. The base prices for the regular 2024 Camaro models (LT coupe and convertible) are expected to start at $32,495 and $38,495, respectively. The pricing for the Collector’s Edition will be announced closer to the on-sale date.

Chevrolet has stopped the production of the Camaro due to several factors, including declining sales, rising costs, and a shift towards electric vehicles.

  • Declining sales: Camaro sales have been declining for several years. In 2022, Chevrolet sold just over 25,000 Camaros, down from over 70,000 in 2015. This decline in sales is due to several factors, including the rising popularity of SUVs and crossovers and the increasing cost of gasoline.
  • Rising costs: Manufacturing of the Camaro has been rising in recent years. This is due to several factors, including the rising cost of materials, the need to update the car’s technology, and the need to comply with stricter emissions regulations.
  • Shift towards electric vehicles: Chevrolet is shifting its focus towards electric vehicles. The company has announced plans to invest $35 billion in electric and autonomous vehicles by 2025. As a result, Chevrolet is no longer investing in new models of the Camaro.


The discontinuation of the Camaro is a sign of the changing automotive landscape. Classic muscle cars are becoming less popular as consumers shift towards more fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly vehicles. However, the Camaro is a beloved car with a loyal following, and it is likely that Chevrolet will consider reviving the model.
