Think about guys. Only the first Gen last less than 9 years. Why would they change to a different Gen if it's only been out 4 years? I bet it will be closer to 2016 or 2017.

There so much more going into a generational life span than heritage...or historical reference. Things are much different today than they were even 10 or 15 years ago. I think past generation lengths means the least out of all things considered.

It's been said multiple, the Camaro was late to the party. The disadvantage to it coming out late is that they now have to replace it earlier or else it will be dated (in the consumers eyes) when the next gen Mustang comes out. If Chevy had released the Camaro in 2006 or 2007 you wouldn't have this problem.

It's not that the Camaro is actually dated but if the Mustang has 2 generations before the Camaro replaces 1 it will be bad for sales since the car will go stale...

They wanted to know how I knew all this, and I refused to give them my sources, but in the end everything I told them was true. It helped me a lot when it came to ordering my Camaro!

I read somewhere (don't remember where, and don't quote me), but it usually takes about 3yrs for a new vehicle to go from design to pre-production.

If the GM Design Team needs some inspiration for the next 6th Gen, here is my own concept I made , what do you guys think ?

Inspired from the new 2014 Corvette with the new LEDs , new curved lines...
Very agressive looking , but the fat "european" fenders have to go

This! No doubt. It'll be lighter. My guess is 300lbs lighter than SS. Around 3450-3500lbs. Hopefully has MORE power than now naturally aspirated. A 12.5 second SS would be great.

Then issue out another Z/28 that weighs about 3250-3300 lbs with an LS7 AND an optional SS with an LS7 with a track pack or just a dry sump LS7 in it.

The LS series is dead. The 6th gen Camaro will have one of the new LT motors under the hood.

This is my guess as well, and one of the reasons we won't see a Z/28 in the 6th Gen....

Because a new Mustang is right around the corner.

Anyone who refers to previous generation intervals to predict the 6th gen's debut is delusional.

the next Camaro will be on the same platform as the Cadillac ATS , which is out, and CTS, which is coming out later this year. the 6thgen will almost assuredly be out for 2016, not only because they already have the chassis, not only because there's a new mustang , but that platform weigh's a few hundred pounds less.

Nobody knows except engineering. But we can speculate pretty well at this point. Especially since we know when the 5th gen will be going offline at Oshawa.

The 5th gen ends production sometime in 2015. I doubt they would not have a Camaro for a year just to wait for the 50th anniversary.

Come on, why would a salesman lie about something like this? You can trust whatever he says 100%. You can also believe him when he says that everyone is paying sticker price, and that you should never buy a car without the extended warranty and the dealer installed paint sealant.

Yep and if theyre just going to use the LT1 as the ONLY V8 engine, its quite possible that the ONLY V8 powered camaro will debut as a Z/28 like they did with the mid to late 2nd gen. Maybe just maybe they have the 5.3L as a V8 option as well. Time will tell. Next yr we should be getting more info on the 6th gen though engine options probably wont come out until early 2015 or dec. 2014
