General Motors Corp. plans to bring back the Chevrolet Camaro as a production vehicle, according to a published report.
GM Chairman and Chief Executive Rick Wagoner is expected to announce the return of the muscle car in a speech Thursday at an automotive conference in Traverse City, the Detroit Free Press reported Sunday.
The production version could be built as early as 2008, the newspaper reported, citing unnamed people familiar with the plans.
GM spokesman Christopher Preuss said Sunday he couldn't comment on the report.
GM had won praise for its Camaro concept, which was unveiled in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The 2002 model year was the last for the Camaro, which began its run with the 1967 model.
