For the track only - not street legal.

Neat, yes. It is, however Camaro's swan song. Go out with a bang.

Wish they would build a copo like in 1969 that you could drive on the street and keep all the extra junk you don't need off. Only this car is good for for drag strip. It looks pretty but otherwise  it just takes up garage space!

Not so sure about that. It sounds like there will be another iteration coming. Besides, what else would Chevrolet have for NASCAR? I don't think for one second that they would walk away from that series.

From what Iíve been reading, Chevy is saying 2024 is the last year for the Camaro.

As far as NASCAR goes, if the manufacturers keep moving toward ďall electric by 2035Ē,  (I have some long term doubts) then something will have to dramatically change.

And then consider Indy Car & F1 - what will they become in an all electric world?

But before any of that happens, huge/significant/massive changes in the existing electric grid & charging station infrastructure has to occur in order to handle an all EV vehicle world.

There are currently EV racing series championships for formula and off road vehicles. Like it or not, it's coming to a series near us all in the future. If not total EV, at least hybrid. I've seen a few of the formula E races. IMO, they need to put baseball cards in their spokes. All you could hear was tire squeal.

I agree with Rich. I may get an electric for around town but the all electric cars thing has a ways to go. If NASCAR goes electric it with look like slot car racing even more than it does now. I would like a COPO camaro but it would have to street legal for me.

GM has said no more Camaro after 2024. Challenger is out also. There are no plans for any platform development after that. No rear drive cars...except Trucks, and Corvette as I understand it. NASCRAP has been losing fans for years. Its "Car of Tomorrow" failure has shown that. Now, its more like a video game series of racing. The stands are empty. There is no more 'Win on Sunday, sell on Monday".
