The second quarter of 2022 saw sales of the Chevrolet Camaro jump to 4,545 units, a 63% increase compared to the first quarter. Now, let’s face it, this is an anomaly. Not only is Chevrolet’s muscle car dying in the water, but Dodge’s Challenger and Charger models are also coming to an end with a special “Last Call” edition that will be the final send off for its combustion engine.
And Ford may have released a new Mustang only weeks ago with this model boasting the most powerful version ever under the Dark Horse name, but even this seems to be a lazy, safe, way of investing little into a car that will, like most sports cars on the market today, die out.
Even the noise around the 2023 Nissan Z has taken a hit, with the company not putting enough trust in its car to adapt it for the European market. Yes… it’s a sad time for us gear heads who love the sound of a combustion engine. These days are almost up.
But to quell our sadness at this thought, designer Timothy Adry Emmanuel, known as adry53customs on Instagram, has worked alongside HotCars to bring us what he believes the next Camaro will look like. He’s designed it to be a V8 hybrid, like all the fastest cars on the market right now, and builds on the design we’ve been watching evolve over the past years.
It’s lower, seems to have a longer wheelbase, and integrates huge aero trickery into its bodykit with canards running through its lines. There are more vents to shake a stick at, a large ducktail at the rear, and side-exit exhausts that put the cherry on this modernised muscle car.
The wheels are, frankly, awful with them being finished in a bright chrome, but the rest of the car is simply divine.
Now, I want to know… is this what you want from the next-generation Camaro? Let me know in the comments below.
