Car and Driver: There is a 50th Anniversary Edition Chevrolet Camaro Because the Camaro Is Now 50 Years Old

2017 Chevrolet Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition

-

We don’t know anything at this moment besides this: Chevrolet will build and sell a 2017 model-year Camaro 50th Anniversary Edition. It said as much in a tweet pitched into the webbernet-osphere this morning with essentially no details attached. This makes sense—the car, not the lack of information—since Chevrolet first tossed the Camaro at the American public in 1967, shoving the two-door pony car into direct battle with the Ford Mustang. Of course, Ford had by then been selling the Mustang for over two years, generating a sales buoyancy that would hold for some time, leaving the upstart Camaro behind in the sales charts but not out of the rivalry, which would later turn red-hot in Trans Am showdowns and an escalating horsepower war.

All of this is to say that the Camaro might have been birthed into this world staring at the Mustang’s taillights, but it has long established its place among America’s greatest and longest-running nameplates. The 50th Anniversary Edition will celebrate that fact, and based on Chevrolet’s tweet, it will at least come in V-8–powered SS form, with some special-appearing hood stripes and grille trim. We’ve reached out to Chevrolet for more information, and we will update you as we learn more. In the meantime, get ready for what’s sure to be a heady celebration—at the end of its tweet, Chevy promises that the special-edition Camaro “is just the beginning.”

I wonder if it will be over priced like every other special edition Camaro GM's released lately? Z/28, 1LE, ZL-1, etc?

Ringo - you feeling old or you need a new car?
