2019 Camaro IROC Z28

Originally referred to as the “Camaro that thinks it’s a Corvette,” the IROC-Z Camaro was first introduced in 1984. Since then, the popular muscle car has solidified its place in automotive history.

Based on the guidelines enforced by the Classic Car Club of America (essentially stating that a car is a classic after being on the market for 30 years) Receiving this designation instantly gives the car more value. The price of the car doesn’t necessarily appreciate, but the depreciation rate also stays steady at a minuscule level. If you find a classic car with low mileage, it’s like hitting the lottery.

Despite Chevrolet re-releasing a number of previously retired vehicles, including the SS, COPO, ZL1, and, coincidently, the Z-28, it doesn’t appear that the IROC-Z will be making its triumphant return anytime soon. After all, the stock car race that it was based on came to an end in 2006, making the name relatively irrelevant. However, as Jonathan Welsh of The Wall Street Journal notes, a re-released or update versions of the IROC-Z could generate “pangs of nostalgia” for those Generation-X car lovers.

Evidently, the word has been spreading through the Internet that, hey!, Chevy is making a new 2019 Camaro IROC Z28 and there’s renderings and everything! This Is False! A new 2019 Camaro IROC Z28 is more than likely never going to ever happen again.
