Following the Malaise Era of American automobile manufacturing, the ‘90s and early aughts saw the return of some genuine performance. That included a little extra go for the fourth-generation Chevrolet Camaro, which was produced between 1992 and 2002. This particular 2001 Chevrolet Camaro SS recently went up for auction, selling for $13,601.
This particular Chevrolet Camaro hails from the fourth-gen’s penultimate model year, which arrived just before the nameplate was shelved, only to return for a fifth generation in 2009.
Providing the motivation is the 5.7L V8 LS1 engine, which produced 325 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque right out of the factory. However, this particular model was upgraded with a selection of performance pieces which up the ante slightly.
The V8 connects to either a six-speed manual, or a four-speed automatic, with this particular model equipped with the former. A short-throw Hurst shifter makes cog swaps even more enjoyable.
Other standout components include forced air induction, a high-flow exhaust system, sharper suspension, and wider wheels and tires.
Outside, we find the exterior draped in Sunset Orange Metallic paint. It’s all very straight and shiny, and the scooped hood plays well with the other various SS bits.
The interior looks sharp as well, with nicely maintained black upholstery. The new owner will enjoy the usual array of comfort features, including A/C, power windows, cruise control, power locks, and power seats. True to the model ear, this 2001 Chevrolet Camaro also comes with a CD player and remote 12-disc magazine.
This Chevrolet Camaro is listed with 27,621 miles on the clock, and is located in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Three owners are listed in its history.
“This car was purchased by my mother in 2002 and garage-kept ever since,” the seller writes on the listing. “It’s in showroom condition with not a mark on it inside or outside. Obviously a very rare car with all the options and condition.”
This 2001 Chevrolet Camaro ended up selling for $13,601, with 19 bids vying for ownership.
