General Motors will closely monitor the local sales performance of the upcoming Chevrolet Camaro before deciding whether to produce a factory right-hand drive (RHD) version of the muscle car in the future.
The first batch of sixth-generation Camaros will start to roll off a conversion line at Melbourne's Walkinshaw Automotive Group facility this month before going on sale across Holden's Special Vehicles' (HSV) network of 55 dealerships.
According to GM executive vice-president for global product development Mark Reuss, the current Camaro was not engineered for RHD production, meaning a factory iteration would have to wait until the next generation.
When asked if a RHD Camaro will ever be imported, Mr Reuss said "that will depend on how the current model goes in this market".
While the current model has yet to be released Down Under, it has been on sale in the States since 2015, and given the vehicle has an expected lifespan of five-or-so years, the next-generation may not be so far away.
