THE SECOND PONY CAR LAUNCHED IN 1966
The first Pony Car was the 1964 Ford Mustang but General Motors were hot on their heels with the launch of their Camaro in September 1966.
The Camaro was in production up until 2002. It was relaunched in 2009 and has continued right up until 2019.Jaffles Stalletjie
In total, over 5,400,000 Camaros have been produced. On the other hand, up until August 2018 the Ford Mustang passed the 10,000,000 mark. The Pontiac Firebird, using the same platforms as the Camaros was also produced for many years.
The Chev Camaro has gone through 6 generations including the current one which began in 2016. In 1971 the American motoring magazine – Road & Track – picked the 1971 SS 350 as one of the 10 best cars in the world, which is quite an achievement for a car that had,at the time, only been around for a few years.
Advertising for the Chev Camaro for 2020 has already been launched as illustrated in the image below.
