Chevy is testing not the newest generation of the Camaro sports car

July 16, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

The guys from the American company brought to the test a third-generation Camaro sports model, which was discontinued 27 years ago. The car was spotted on the testing grounds of the American concern GM.

The third generation Camaro sports car was discontinued back in 1992, so why was it found at the test site of the American GM now? Whatever it was, the spotted car had a manufacturer’s license plate and a sticker on the windshield that gave permission to work at the test site.

It still does not explain why Chevy tested the car, which was discontinued 27 years ago, but publications that published these “spy” photos could notice something quite interesting. Starting to follow the prototype of the Camaro, the journalists listened carefully to his gear shift and concluded that the car has a 6-speed manual transmission. For the third generation, they are characteristic only with a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic transmission.

  As for the engine, the mysterious car probably had a small V8 unit hiding under a bulging hood. He had four tailpipes for the exhaust system and a safety cage, so definitely not your mediocre Camaro from 1982-1992. Perhaps the biggest clue that reveals the true identity of the car is behind the front wheels and on the rear bumper, where we see the GM Performance Parts badges.

  It can be assumed that this prototype was used as a test bench for future products of the concern General Motors. It is possible that some tests are being carried out with the suspension, given that the Camaro seems to have received a slightly higher ground clearance.

 As for a completely new generation of the model, it is in limbo – some rumors say that the next Chevy Camaro will appear in 2023, while others suggest that the model will completely disappear and then return as an electric vehicle.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that a photo of the back of the new Chevy Corvette (C8) appeared on the network. Due to information leakage, we can already now look at the American novelty with a medium engine location … but only at the back of it. The official presentation of the next generation Chevrolet Corvette (C8) will be held July 18.
