From the February '07 'Popular Hot Rodding'

It will be years until the new Camaro is on the streets, but thats no reason for pundits to resist speculating on every aspect of the future muscle car. Recently, Detroit Free Press columnist Mark Phelan discussed the possibility of a diesel powered Camaro. As he stated online, "Imagine a 2010 Camaro with a 360HP V8 and highway fuel economy over 40 mpg. ......"We don't see this happening but its interesting to imagine."

I don't know. A diesel powered Camaro??? It just doesn't sound right.

The article goes on to mention the rumors about the Camaro being sold in Europe.

"I want the car for our lineup," Wayne Brannon executive director of Chevrolet Europe told Automotive News Report.

Diesels do good in passenger cars but for a sports/pony car that would just be odd hearing the clacking ans seeing the smoke. Blah I'll pass.

I do believe an Audi Diesel won the 24hours at Daytona didn't it? Huge top speed, AND it got WAY better on gas mileage. I love diesels...If its feasible and makes good power and tremendous torque it would rock!
Yes Doug, in fact it did.

Europe has much better diesel fuel than we do and that is why they don't clack and they don't smoke. They are clean and just as powerful and they have more torque!

I like the thought!

Now a diesel Camaro would be interesting. I would buy one, of course after I bought an SS/Z28.

I guess you haven't seen/heard a diesel motor since the Eighties...

These days I have to look ON the truck to SEE if it is a diesel!

we have that diesel now, the ultra low sulfur diesel is here and is required on all 07+ diesels. i hope diesel can come here in cars stronger. still doesn't belong in a sportscar.
