NFSC Car: 2006 Chevrolet Camaro Concept
The Chevrolet Camaro Concept was unveiled at the 2006 Detroit Motor Show, to the cheering of a raucous crowd. It borrows obvious retro design cues and a 400 HP V8 LS2 Engine. The concept car features a 110 in (2794 mm) wheelbase, which is 9 in (230 mm) longer than the previous generation, but an overall length of just 186 in (4744 cm), 7 in (180 mm) shorter. GM (General Motors) is expected to release the fifth-generation Camaro in 2009, after a few months of production planning. Although the production version of the vehicle was not shown, GM said it would follow very closely the style of the 2006 Camaro Concept. GM confirmed the Camaro would be rear wheel drive, have an independent rear suspension, be offered with both V6 and V8 engines, and have available automatic and manual transmissions. GM is expected to show the production version of the vehicle in a massive debut at the 2009 North American International Auto Show.
