7: Storied Nameplates At GM
When you think about GM canceling the Camaro, there are also a number of other well-known nameplates that come to mind. What happens to the future of the Impala, Caprice, and Chevelle? Without these vehicles, the future of the automotive business will be quite dull and lacking personality.
With the move toward electric cars, GM will be less able to revive certain nameplates because it just won’t make sense. You might not think very much about this now but there are points in history where a brand revival is extremely profitable. Take the retro-inspired Mustang in 2005 for instance or even the VW New Beetle in 1998.
