Does Car & Driver even realize that Chevrolet is moving away from that fascia design?

We don't get much info about future products out of our friends at GM. They'll pop in to correct/shoot down mis-information, but getting hard info months or years ahead of any actual reveal doesn't happen. They all like their jobs too much.

However, we do get access to some high quality spy shots pretty reliably.

That car was sitting in the same 2012 Detroit autoshow display as the Code 130R that Car & Driver based their rendering off.

The original render thread with the 130r concept makes the homepage? C5 is on a roll! Lol. I guess since the OP of the other thread edited his own post, y'all had to revive this one? Quick thinking mods.

This is my first post haha. I personally think that this is a nice looking car, but not for a Camaro. The front looks more like a Malibu or a Traverse than it does a Camaro. I think the 5th generation has its own unique grill that helps gives the car that Camaro personality. I looks like a nice car though, I just think the grill does not have that Camaro feel to it. It is only fair to fully judge a car however, when you are behind the wheel haha. I'm looking forward to hearing more about this.

Don't think so! People need to stop playing around with that concept, that's NOT going to be the next Camaro in any form or fashion! (Well, except for Alpha that it rides on)

I'm not sure why people are getting in such an uproar about this picture. Its a magazine trying to sell issues. Its pure speculation, which is to say an idea, most likely based on zero hard (or even soft) facts. That being said, our friends at Chevy are likely seeing what enthusiasts' reactions to any design ideas are. My own personal feeling is that I hope going forward we see progression from the 5th, which is really a progression from the first. At the risk of offending other Camaro fans, I think the further Chevy got from the first generation, the less popular it became until they stopped making it completely due to lack of interest. Build off the most iconic of Camaros (the first), like Chevy did with the 5th gens and they'll remain strong. I'm not saying rehash the first or the fifth, but don't start with a car that bears no resemblance to the fist, like they did with the second gens. Just one person's opinion, that's all.

It is too bad that many car companies try to fit the same front end look on as many vehicles as possible. When you look back at cars in the 60's the only manufacturers doing that were probably Mercedes and Rolls Royce. But you knew a Chevy was a Chevy the same way you know a Camaro isn't a Mustang...because each has their own individual looks that they aren't trying to share with a half dozen vehicles in the line-up. You knew a Chevy was a Chevy and not a Ford or Mopar not because they had the same corporate grill, but because they were clearly an Impala, a Chevelle, a Nova, a Camaro, a Corvair, etc... Sadly, it seems a lot of car companies are more interested that you only know its a certain brand, than a certain model made by a certain brand. No wonder studies are showing that younger generations are feeling less excited about cars than past generations. Thats like wanting people to get excited about ice cream when you're only offering vanilla, chocolate and strawberry when past generations had Ben & Jerry's variety to choose from. But as I said, that's just one person's opinion.

Hood looks much better. The hood definitely needs to have this kind of character, whatever it ends up being. Look at the new CTS hood. Amazing.

Definitely need a raised center hood, or something to give it a muscle appearance.

Not too fond of that nose though. I think maybe the center crease needs to come down a bit and hide the red part that goes back inward, just above the lower grille. Nice work though!
