Don't be confused by the rumbling and lumpy idle present in the video. That's the pickup truck the electric Camaro lines up against. It's easy to hear the (lack of) sound the eCOPO Camaro makes when the driver does a burnout to warm up the tires. When Chevrolet...

  • 2019 Chevrolet Camaro Turbo 1LE first drive

    Muscle cars of the 1960s generally did one thing well. They ground out tarmac-ripping power and torque, hurtling their body-on-frame selves straight down the road or the dragstrip with astonishing acceleration. But squiggly roads, braking zones, or enduring a track meet for longer than 15 minutes caused overheating, oil starvation, and all manner of mechanical apoplexy. Today's muscle cars do the full dance, though, and do so with damn near no excuses. Modern American muscle machines typically throb to the familiar beat of eight cylinders, just like in 1969. Chevrolet alters that beat with...
