The Chevrolet Camaro is an American sports passenger car that was presented to the public for the first time in 1966 at the Detroit Motor Show. Its serial production started in 1966 and continues with interruptions to the present day. The car was or is driven - depending on the version - by a wide range of engines with a displacement of 2.5 to 7.4 liters. Production took place in various cities, mainly in the United States, including Norwood and Van Nuys.
The Camaro model was developed and put into production by the General Motors Corporation, the owner of the Chevrolet brand, primarily in order to engage in a market battle with the very successful Ford Mustang, which entered the market in 1964. The Camaro model in GM's offer was complemented by a Pontiac Firebird, with a floor plate (the so-called F-body platform). On the American market, it was classified as the so-called pony car and muscle car. In the course of production, they were offered primarily in three body versions, as 2-door: coupe, convertible or convertible. The model was produced in the course of production of six of its generations, the latest of which entered the market in 2016.
