Just because an automaker kills a nameplate doesn't mean you won't see it again some day.
Ed Welburn, General Motors' global design boss, said GM has wanted a new version of the Chevrolet Camaro almost since the day the old model died in 2002. But GM had too many other priorities.
Plans for a Camaro revival in 2004 were shelved, Welburn said, because GM officials were not satisfied with the vehicle's rear-wheel-drive underpinnings.
"We needed a little course correction," Welburn said at last week's Automotive News World Congress. He said the Camaro concept seen at the Detroit auto show could be in production in three years.
