The Gen 6 Camaro shares the basic Alpha platform with the Cadillac ATS & CTS. Gen 7 Camaro in EV form sharing an EV platform with EV Sedan’s wouldn’t be surprising. If you got a gen7 Camaro it’d have to be more practical than the current 6th. Gen car.
I agree with this perspective on it 100%.

Those sites are probably just using the Camaro name and assuming 4 doors as added click bait.

Notice how GM’s response was the same as the original Camaro to be killed after ‘23 or whenever it was, story that came out 2 years ago.

It’s not a Camaro if it’s 4 door. What will it be called? Camaro E-sport? Even if it’s just a 2dr EV. You can call it Camaro by slapping a Camaro emblem on it? It ain’t no Camaro just as the mustang E-Mach isn’t a mustang

Meh, I wish GM or gM or gm or WeverTF they identify as these days, the best of luck. They've decided that EV is their only future, so I've decided that Porsche is my future. They can whore out whatever brand they want. They own the rights to it, but I won't be buying it. It's been a great 25 year run for me, I enjoyed many of their awesome cars that were designed for car enthusiasts.

Bottom line is ariZona28 is right. JUST CALL IT SOMETHING ELSE!!!! Yeah and that Guardians thing has me pissed too and I'm not even an Indians fan.

How about calling a Chevrolet Spark a Corvette? Don’t want to offend those that can’t afford an actual Corvette so let’s make em feel good they’re now driving a Corvette the size of a shoe box?

Thanks for sharing your perspective. For what it's worth, protesting the name has been going on since the 70s. If you'd like to read an overview of the history https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clev...go_controversy

You do know that the Cleveland Indians was named after one of the first Native American players in MLB who played for Cleveland and Chief Wahoo was an actual person right? The team and mascot were named for actual people to honor and respect them not out of disrespect. This whole movement started because somebody got a bug up their a$$ and decided to be offended about something they knew nothing about.

I am familiar with Louis Sockalexis, the naming out of honor is pretty debatable.

I don't think Native Americans protesting this in 1971 = a bug up their a$$, but to each their own!


Here's some quotes from people on a topic they know nothing about

I wish they would replace the handicap symbol with the Superman logo. That would look great on my plate.

I personally identify as a big cat, so I would appreciate it if they changed the Jax Jags to the Crackers given the town's history with Florida cattle.
