Chevrolet Performance Cars Flex Muscles at SEMA Show
Concept Corvette, Camaro and SS models highlight breadth of performance range


LAS VEGAS – Chevrolet provided the first look at nine high-performance concept cars today at the SEMA Show. The horsepower-infused range includes stylized versions the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray, SS sports sedan and a variety of restyled 2014 Camaros – including the all-new Z/28.

'From the all-new Corvette Stingray to the new Camaro Z/28 and SS performance sedan, Chevrolet is America's choice for performance cars. Our new lineup of racing-influenced models gives customers more choices for exciting driving experiences,' said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. 'It's our most diverse range of performance-car choices in nearly 20 years.'


Through the end of September, Camaro's total sales lead over Mustang was more than 5,000 for the year, putting it on track to be the industry's best-selling sports car under $50,000 for the fourth consecutive year. The Camaro enters 2014 with revised styling and the new Z/28 model – the most track-capable Camaro in the car's history.

The all-new SS returns Chevrolet to its rear-wheel-drive performance sedan roots, established with the small-block V-8 in the 1950s and enhanced with the Impala SS in the early 1960s.

And Chevrolet dealers can hardly keep the all-new Corvette Stingray in stock, with sold orders rolling to new owners off transporters.

'Racing is the common thread among Chevrolet's performance cars and that comes from decades of transferring race technology to our production models,' said Jim Campbell, GM Ú.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. 'Corvette, Camaro and SS deliver well-balanced, exhilarating driving experiences forged on the racetrack and refined for the street.'
