22: Chevrolet Camaro Berlinetta
The third-generation Camaro redefined pony car design for the 1980s. The Camaro marked a new style that would resonate with a new generation of buyers. Then the Berlinetta hit the market, a luxury version of the Camaro (via LS1 Tech). General Motors sought to appeal to upmarket car shoppers, and they thought a luxury Camaro was the way. The Berlinetta featured an unusual dashboard and interior.
GM focused the Berlinetta on the female car shopper, dubbed the “secretary’s car” by car critics. From a performance perspective, extra weight weighed down the Berlinetta and a lackluster engine choice. A luxury minded Camaro might not be the best choice when it comes to a performance car. GM wanted the Berlinetta to compete with the BMW 3-Series, but that didn’t happen.
