That "European" styling that you guys are bashing is one of the reasons Cadillac is still in business.

Not the Camaro. As FBodfather said if anyone posts a picture and says that's the new Camaro they are wrong.

I won't believe anything anyone from GM says after the leak of the decade Corvette....

However, that shit heap certainly isn't the next Camaro...

now if the new design were taken from this design and few changes like the head lights were together like chevy Tahoe if you understand me, and the grill lets say they are separated like the Silverado without the ugly chrome.




and the tail lights kinda looks like this but with new design and cuter




i think it might have a chance to be cool and great new design for the 6th Gen.

and sorry if no one understand me lol, cause i'm terrible at explaining.

I'd like to see someone draw that. That could be cool.

I'd have to see the rear, and at least the render not on a magazine page to judge. That looks like the Code 130R with some enhancements and sized to fit the expected chassis.

If you guys all think it's a disappointment, it's a shame. I think it looks OK - but I think our generation looks better. Let's hope this was just a speculative render not based on anything any journalist has seen in a GM design studio or whatever . . .

Edit: I think this is from the April Car and Driver? We won't see that picture on their website for another month.

Guess I'll still be driving my 2010 in 2016 before I buy that cross over between a volvo and BMW; looks more like a SUV wanna be than a sports car. Where is the personality? Where is the "I am a Camaro" look. It looks like any other "performance" car on the street. Hope they change alot of things else I'll be driving a Mustang. lol

Even if it's not, I could see that front end being modded to look like a 2nd Gen...

Short answer: no. It's not. It's a rendering heavily based on that weird-looking 130R concept car.

For one, a brand new Mustang is right around the corner.

Like Fenwick said, the New Mustang is on it's way with IRS and a Lighter Chassis than the current one....

Plus FYI, The Camaro was kinda 5 Model Years late to the party...

Letting one run with little or few changes are what led to the sales disaster of the 4 th gens. If we want to keep Camaros around for a long time they need a new Gen to come along at least every 6 or 7 years. Look at the Mustang this version has been around for 9 years now, but they have had 3 refreshes in that time, some more than others. They will have a complete new car soon, and Chevy needs to keep up this time so they don't fall behind again.

The Vega was way ahead of it's time - The Chevette saved the idea and confused me at first but it filled the niche.

It would make sense, seeing as Ford is aimed to make the Mustang a BMW 4 Series (Coupe Version of the new 3 Series) Competitor.

Everything so far seems to be pointing to a smaller car. That includes the Mustang and Challenger. Hopefully the design team pulls it off and impresses us all. Although I would always expect those type of cars to look big.

...evolution, not revolution will be the change. We received revolution with the rebirth of the Camaro in 2010, retro as it was with the competition. They followed suit, but made it big in overall excellence. You are correct about the past, Chevy lost touch with vision..., became complacent, and sales plummeted. And then the unthinkable happened, the F body died as a results of lack of focus and diligence to the product. Major fail there. GM/Chevy was redeemed with the Gen 5, and now they must repeat that feat with the Gen 6 car. If it is anything like the C7 Vette, then we are golden.

If you mean that the Cadillac's unique styling as compared to the cookie-cutter bland ugly european cars has somehow made the cadillac brand a standout, then I can't agree more.
