After 35 straight years of Camaros rolling off the line, Chevy pressed the giant red stop button in 2002. The current F-Body platform that the car was based on was phased out, and at the time, demand for this type of sports coupe was at a low. Lucky for enthusiasts, it wasn't long before designers Tom Peters and Bob Boniface went back to the drawing board in '05. In January of '06, a new concept, which paid homage to the first-generation Camaro, was launched at the Detroit International Motor Show. The two-door, four-seat, rear-wheel coupe housed a 6.0L, 366-cu-in LS2 V8 that produced 400 horsepower and was linked with a T-56 six-speed manual trans. Exactly one year later, the convertible model, sporting a sleek Hugger orange paint job with dark gray racing stripes also showed its face for the first time in Detroit, with the main differences coming on the rear fenders and a reworked interior.
