14. 2001 Camaro
The 2001 Camaro is considered to be the last of the breed. Called the “Catfish Camaro” due to the large front duct used for cooling the engine, this model was the last of live axle cars and was a classic muscle car in a modern package. It was also the lowest production year with less than 30,000 made (via Cars).
The engine options included the venerable 3.8-liter V6 with 205 HP and the famous 5.7-liter L.S. V8 with up to 310 HP. Even today, early 2000s Camaros are considered the best bang for the buck in terms of power and performance for an affordable price. Their drivetrains are rugged and can withstand drag racing and track days.
