No. That's the 130R concept car, it's a sporty 4cyl RWD car that could probably compete with the FR-S and BRZ (if it were produced). See also: TRU140S.

Don't worry, that's not it. Not that I know anything, but I would bet big money, that's not it.

Yes that is last years Code 130R concept
Not the Camaro. As FBodfather said if anyone posts a picture and says that's the new Camaro they are wrong.

I hope not.
If GM sports cars continues to go the route of European styling, this company is in big trouble. Case in point with the ugly(IMO) C7 Corvette, that looks like a Ferrari 548 from the front, and a 5th Gen Camaro on steroids, from the back.

GM designers get it together, stop trending with everyone else, and be yourself for goodness sake.

the lights looks like BMW and the grill well we know from where.

but really it's ugly, and the design is kinda wrong

the lights are small and the grill is too big.

BTW didn't i saw this picture with different design ?

I have to agree with post #8. It seems that the GM designs as of late have been a hit or miss. The designs are busier and are not as crisp as some of the concepts we've seen from 2008. Some of the intent of the designs look ambitious, but one or two of them (Corvette) needed more studio time IMO.

That car from the OP might be a nice edition as a new model, but it would look strange as a camaro. GM has to think hard on this one. The camaro design has to walk the tight rope between nostalgia and modern appeal.

Call me crazy...I like the design. Just not the 4-cylinders of the 130-R concept.

If GM does make a 4-cylinder version, it won't be for the same guys driving V8s. It also will be no slouch. The reason they didn't do it this time around is that the car wasn't "fun" to drive. With less weight, less power might be necessary to make the car fun.

If GM takes that car, gets rid of the middle grille bar and the ridiculously large bow tie, makes the head lights bigger and gives it some decent performance, that might be a solid entry sports car.

Yall need to ...

The picture is of the Code 130R concept, NOT THE CAMARO. It's not a muscle car, it's not a performance car. It is designed to be a sporty-looking, fuel-efficient, cheaper, fun car marketed to younger buyers.

I remember those days. I had a 71 hatchback, my first new car. Traded it for my first Camaro...
