The Chevrolet Camaro is categorized as pony car, some versions though also as muscle cars. It first went on sale in 1966 to compete on the market with the Ford Mustang. It was built on the same platform as the 1967 Pontiac Firebird. Since its introduction in the 1960s, the Camaro has been marketed through five generations, the latest being launched for the 2010 model year.

The first-generation Camaro was available as a 2-door, 2+2 seating, coupe or convertible with a choice of several V8 engines. It was conceived to challenge the Ford Mustang in the muscle car segment and this first-generation was produced until 1969. It recently provided the inspiration for the 2010 Camaro design.

The second generation Camaro was manufactured from 1970 until 1981. It was reviewed in 1974 and 1978 but as it was based on the same platform, the model showed strong similarities with the first generation. In 1971 the Road & Track magazine elected it as one of the 10 best cars in the world.

The third generation of the Camaro was introduced in 1982 and lasted until 1992. For the first time the model featured modern fuel injection, Turbo-Hydramatic 700R4 four-speed automatic transmissions, five speed manual transmissions, 16 inch wheels, a standard 4-cylinder engine and hatchback bodies.

The fourth-generation Camaro was launched in 1993 as coupe body style with 2+2 seating or convertible with rear-wheel drive, and a choice of V6 and V8 engines. In 1997/1998 the model received updates on the interior and exterior. After 35 years the Camaro ceased production in 2002, due to declining sales.

Only in 2006 was the model revived with a Camaro Concept which eventually lead to the fifth generation. The coupe version of the 2010 Camaro is on sale since 2009 and available in LS, LT and SS trim levels. The LS and LT versions feature a 3.6 L V6 engine producing 312 hp (233 kW) while the SS with manual transmission comes with the 6.2 L LS3 V8 producing 426 hp (318 kW). The automatic SS is equipped with the L99 V8 with 400 hp (300 kW). For the 2011 model year, the convertible version became available too.
