The Chevrolet Camaro will soon only be a dream.

General Motors, which sells the brawny muscle car, has announced that it will stop making the sixth generation of the classic gas-powered car as it makes the mandated transition to electric vehicles.

Production for Camaros will cease at Chevy’s Lansing Grand River Assembly plant in Michigan in January 2024.

“While we are not announcing an immediate successor today, rest assured, this is not the end of Camaro’s story,” Vice President of Global Chevrolet Scott Bell said in a statement.

Chevy has become known for its motorsports presence with the Camaro, including competition in NASCAR and other circuits. The automaker vowed to remain committed to the racing world.

“Our plan is to continue to compete and win at the highest levels of auto racing,” said Jim Campbell, vice president of performance and motorsports.

Chevrolet’s announcement comes as Dodge also unveiled its final gas-powered muscle car, the 2023 Challenger SRT Demon 170.

The automakers’ transitions away from gas-powered vehicles follow a pledge to go all-electric by 2035 as both federal and state leaders seek to ban the sale of all new gasoline-powered cars within the next decade.
