Chevrolet ditched the Impala in 2020, but artist Rain Prisk took it upon himself to revive the model. We now look forward to the return of this luxury coupe. The front end rendering immediately evokes associations with the current Chevy Camaro. The very low stance gives the car a sporty look, as do the large black wheels. The sides are simple except for the crisp chrome strip that runs right down the center.
Previous versions of the model
The roof of the model is low and the openings for the windows seem quite tiny. There is no B-pillar on the door, reminiscent of retro cars. Unfortunately, the Prisk does not render from other angles to see what the rear of the coupe looks like (photo: instagram.com/rainprisk). But there is a picture of the cockpit, and it looks downright luxurious.
Render of the new Chevrolet Impala
Under the hood is hopefully a large block V8. However, current environmental regulations make it difficult to sell such a power plant. Alternatively, powerful electric motors and high-capacity batteries can be used to create a quiet cruiser for long distances.
Chevrolet first used the Impala name on the 5-seater Corvette concept in 1956, and in 1958 the name appeared on production cars as a top trim. In 59, the Impala became a separate car in the Chevy lineup and received body options: sedan, station wagon, coupe and convertible. The model went through several generations until 1985.
The Bowtie revived the Impala name for the 1994 model. The new SS was power-oriented with a 5, 7-liter LT1 V8 engine under the hood. However, this joy only lasted until 1996. Chevy brought the Impala back in 2000, and it lasted several more generations until production ceased entirely in 2020.
