Chevy Camaro Insurance
Introduced in 1966 to compete with the popular Ford Mustang, the Chevy Camaro has become an iconic American muscle car. After a seven-year hiatus in production, the Camaro roared back onto the scene in 2009. For collectors, Chevrolet released a limited-edition Hot Wheels Camaro to celebrate 50 years of Hot Wheels leading the way.

With a starting price of $25,905, the Chevrolet Camaro is just a couple hundred dollars more expensive than the Ford Mustang. If you’re feeling extra flashy, you can splash out over $60,000 on the Camaro ZL1, which comes with a 6.2L, V8 650 horsepower engine. That makes it one of the highest-powered cars on the road.
It would be a shame if all that horsepower was wasted on a daily commute. The Chevrolet Camaro gets its turn on the track in the Grand Am Road Racing Series, which includes the iconic Rolex 24 at Daytona endurance race and a variety of races held across the United States and Canada.
The Camaro competes in the Grand Touring division against sports cars from Porsche, BMW, Ford and other makers. You’ll also find the Camaro going grille-to-grille with the Ford Mustang in the National Auto Sport Association’s Pony Car Racing Series.
Although the Camaro comes out on top for speed and curb appeal, it comes with the usual drawbacks of a sports car. Small trunk, cramped/non-existent back seat, and limited visibility. As Edmunds explains: “World War II-era bunkers were easier to see out of.” Ouch.
