I really like the early 2nd gen design. The split grill is pretty sick IMO. My favorite tho is 67-68. Love the fender lines. 69 isn't as clean for me...I think the redesign of the fender lines was a redesign mainly for the sake of redesign. Though i certainly wouldnt turn down a 69 Z/28 if one came my way and I'll alway have a soft spot in my heart for the gen 3 IROC's. Just please don't rehash the gen 4.

I personally love the 3rd Gen look. Maybe because it was what my first car was...anyway I love the 1st Gens but since they already did that with this generation either spice up this one (dunno how cause it's just so sexy) or try it with the 3rd. I never have liked the looks of the 2nd. It's my least favorite out of the 5.

GM sure does have a challenge, I trust'em and probably will buy a 6th gen at some point

Personally I think they should stop production next year and come back with the 6th gen 5-7 years later. Next year come out with limited edition z28 maybe 500-1000 models or less. I liked the gap between '02 and '10

GM has gifted us with a new design for each generation. Sure the Gen5 has many clues from the Gen1. I would not expect the Gen6 to be an updated version of the Gen5. Maybe it'll have some clues from the other generations, but the Gen6 will sell on it's own merits because our Camaro designers share a PASSION with us !!!!

Remember when you saw the concept Camaro backin in 2006? I remember where I was, and that I had to have one. I would love to have that same moment once again.

I would trust GM . They have proven with the zl1 that they know how to improve on the camaros looks. Why not just change the front grill and taillights , wheels and make it lighter?
They could also change the mirros and trimm and beep the basic shape maybe slight differance with the fenders, but make it over with slight changes. Hood , the gills in front of the rear tires, diff side trim . The basic design should be kept the same because if its not broken dont fix it.

That's the spirit that caught me too! The challenge I see is that the 2006 concept was the first car since the 60's that made me say.... "DAYUUUM".... gotta have one of those as soon as they put some serious horsepower in it. (and Voila....... ZL1). "Opportunity" and "Readiness" collided with the 2012 ZL1. Sometimes it happens only once in a generation.......

Anybody want a true fastback with no quarter windows? Looked good on the 2nd gens, but I only liked the 70-73's.

I think GM should concentrate on the weight problem, But doin't mess with a good thing. Just look at the numbers that the auctions bring in. Its not the gen 2,3,or4. It's the Gen.1 comaro. Twek the lines GM. like you did with the 67 and the 68. But doin't mess with a goooood thing.

I agree, think they should concentrate on weight and tweak the current design, just enough to look "better" but keep the basic shape, I know its a TALL order!

Ding Ding Ding! We have a winner. Evolution not revolution.

With so much at stake coming off a hugely successful design GM has to create an evolution of the 5Gen or pay the price. The 5Gen was supposed to be based off the 1969 design, however I think it looks more 1967-68. The perfect move would be to add more of the 1969 styling cues; wheel well arches, frontend light placement, an even more sinister fascia, etc. Then hide the door handles, revise the rear with different tail lights and a better placement for the reverse lights. Maybe even some polished aluminum or exposed carbon bits to add more interest.
