Earlier this morning we reported that the General Motors disbanded its High Performance Vehicle Operations unit. GM said that engineers from the department will now focus on more high-volume Cadillacs, Buicks, Chevrolets and Pontiacs and that all high-performance projects are on an indefinite hold.
However, Camaro SS fans can rest assured that the 422-hp Camaro is still on its way. According to Inside Line who spoke with spokesman Vince Muniga, the Camaro SS “is not threatened at all.” Muniga said that the Camaro SS along with the Corvette ZR1 and Corvette Z06 are regularly engineered cars and don’t go through HPVO.
HPVO is responsible for products such as the V-series Cadillacs, Chevrolet Cobalt SS, HHR SS and a V8 version of the Colorado.
Muniga said that the Cadillac CTS-V is also a regularly engineered car and will continue through its life-cycle.
