The Chevrolet Camaro SSX

The Chevrolet Camaro could get a track-only Mustang Cobra Jet fighter

Rumors around the high performance muscle car world are indicating that when the 2011 SEMA Show opens, GM Performance Parts (GMPP) will unveil their new Stock Eliminator Chevrolet Camaro – a purpose built drag car that will help GM racers keep up with the likes of the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet and the Dodge Challenger V10 Drag Pak.

Since the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet FR500CJ was introduced by Ford Racing, it has been making short work of the factory drag racing classes with all sorts of records but next season, there could be a new Chevrolet Camaro drag racing package from GM Performance Parts that could help GM racers to dethrone the Cobra Jet. General Motors hasn’t offered any official plans to build a track only drag racing package for the Camaro but the folks at LSXTV have speculated that SEMA 2011 will introduce the world to a Stock Eliminator Chevrolet Camaro. GMPP has used past SEMA Shows to roll out special edition, high performance packages like the road race-ready Camaro SSX (shown on the right) so it would make good sense for GM to bring out a drag racing package to the world’s biggest performance expo.
