Fifth generation Camaro sales hit 500,000.

The fifth generation Camaro, now in its final model year, is getting ready to race into the record books with the sale of its 500,000th model.

Hitting the market in August of 2009 as a 2010 model, it did not take long for the fifth generation Camaro sales to surpass the Ford Mustang and become the best-selling performance car in the U.S. five years in a row.

The 2015 Chevrolet Camaro, which has helped increase sales by 7%, comes in a wide range of models including the 323-hp V6 LS/LT coupe or convertible; the 426-hp, V8 Camaro SS coupe or convertible; the 580-hp, supercharged Camaro ZL1 coupe or convertible, and the Camaro Z/28 – that comes ready for the track.

“The fifth-generation Camaro has clearly resonated with both long-time Camaro fans, and first time performance-car buyers,” Todd Christensen, Camaro marketing manager, said in a release. “That sets the bar high for the next chapter of the car’s history,” which will be the sixth-gen Camaro set to arrive in May.
