Chevrolet Camaro – History – 4th Generation
The Camaro was all new for 1993. All though most of the floor stamping and rear suspension was carried over, the 1993 Camaro featured new plastic front fenders, a new short-arm/long-arm front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering, and an all new sleek styling. The model lineup was simplified to just the base Sport Coupe powered by a 3.4 liter V6 rated at 160bhp and the Z28 with the Corvettes 5.7 liter LT1 small-block V8 under-rated at 275 bhp. Once again, the convertible was gone. The LT1 was easily the most powerful small-block installed in a Camaro since its namesake, the 1970 LT-1 note the dash, and, considering the change in gross vs. net ratings, may have been more powerful. The Z28 could be ordered with either a four-speed automatic or six speed manual transmission, and came standard with 16 inch wheels and tires, four wheel anti-lock brakes, and a black colored roof, standard. Z28 prices started at less than $17,000, making it a true performance bargin. Once again, a Camaro paced the Indianapolis 500 and black replica cars were offered. Unlike 1982, no modifications were necessary on the actual pace car.
