The indented main grill area is starting to seem like a reoccuring theme. Check out the Nascar Camaro

I like the side profile but no thanks to the front.

The back looks like the 2010+ Mustang.
I doubt fbodfather would admit something like that.

I mentioned in the thread on the other site...I don't think even 'evolved' 5th gen styling works as a fastback. That's really about the only thing I didn't like about those chops. Yeah, the front end view was a bit rough, but I think it would look good with a little refinement.

I didn't care for the coupe or the four door sedan - but the convertible and El Camino both looked promising to me

I pretty much agree with many of the other comments here:

1) Side profile looks good and a nice update of the current car, but the fast back doesn't quite work for me. It looks decent on the silver car, but looks a bit odd on some of the other shots. Going a bit more traditional here (not having the roofline swoop go all the way back) instead of fast back would be better.

2) Side windows look a little funny...specifically the swooping shape of the lower part of it.

3) None of those front ends work for me. One too plain, and the other looks like a bug face. soften up the bug face one a bit and go with a different head light design and we could be talking. Give the hood some character...performance cars should NOT have a boring hood! The center bulge the current car has would still work perfectly.

4) Don't see enough of the rear end to know forsure, but I'm thinking it needs a new tail-light design

Overall for someone's mock-up, not too bad, but still no way I'd purchase it if the front looked just like that.

If the 5th gen needed to have the B-pillar behind the rear quarter glass, those designs would need it as well...

As stated above, the rear end looks like the same "baby with a dirty diaper" rear end that the Mustang currently has.

The targa top is the only thing I liked. Please, please, please - if we can't get t-tops anymore, PLEASE give us a targa top on the 6th gen!

I'll be honest in saying that this is the first 6th gen study that has potential. I think it looks good. Its a derivation of the 5th gen style but adds a more oval profile and cleaner sculpting lines. The front grille needs some work, but IMO that will be an easier task than shaping the body. Its very interesting; I would be careful with the pillars. The pillars seem to dip a bit into the lexus think.

Overall it is a fantastic start, and with a little work with the front and rear facades, the design could be another success.

Edit: The 4 door sedan would be a welcomed alternative to the Chevy SS (the front end needs a lot of work). The designs need to be bold, clean, and less dependent on design and chassis sharing that has been the usual GM think.

Send a message via AIM to Mr. Wyndham
It's said that there are dozens if not hundreds of design submissions for cars like the Camaro and Corvette....they pick a few they like and start massaging the clay....

I would love to see all of those proposals that didn't make it...

Looks like a lot of Jaguar or Mercedes in the Camaros.
