The movie comes out a 1 yr from now. By that point, the new Mustang will probably in the showrooms (or nearly there). Sticking a mock-up of the next Camaro in a movie like Transformers makes a lot of sense. Obviously, the Mustang is going to be getting a lot of attention next year. GM is going to need to crank up its own advance-publicity machine for the Camaro.

Count me in the minority that thinks this looks pretty good. I think it looks like a leaner, meaner version of the current car.
The nose reminds me of my '05 cavalier. It's definitely a striking look but I'm not sure if it's the good kind.

Make no mistake, this IS what Chevy has in mind for the next Camaro. You don't buy into a 150 million dollar advertisement that's going to be distributed worldwide with toys and merchandising, etc. and not put in your intended design.

Oh well just just makes my 2012 that much more of a classic.

You do if you already have unused design mockups lying around since you just refreshed the car with a different design...

That would be a huge blunder on Chevy's part if they just threw something together from scrapped designs and then had to explain to the public that it won't be for sale.

And actually this looks like a natural evolution of the 2014 design. They narrowed the grill significantly for the refresh and this one has practically no grill at all. This also uses the same tail lights as the refresh.

It looks awkward. The black moulding comes up too high in the rear and center of the car giving the illusion of the front being too heavy. The design in general does not flow from front to back. It looks like 3 pieces not 1 car. The headlights are cool, however they don't look as though they belong on this car.

Good surprise, but I tend to believe what we are seeing will be close to the 6th gen. Kind of like the subtle differences between the 5th gen transformers camaro concept and the production 5th gen.

And I don't really car how they make the horsepower, whether it a Turbo, supercharged or just a whole lot of hamsters.

That was when he was pressed with the question. In this case he just offered information. Very different.

I don't think this will even be close to the 6th gen. Even with the movie coming out next summer, I think it is way too soon for GM to drop any design elements of the 6th gen. I'm keeping this in perspective that this car has been altered for a fictional movie.

Not a huge fan of the front at all. The back end isn't too bad. Hopefully the production car will be more appealing, otherwise I'll keep my 5th gen and then find something else to trade for down the road.

I hate that this keeps happening though!! I hated the retro mustang switch in 2005, so I decided not to stay in the Mustang family. Now it's looking like I don't like the new look for Camaro. :( We'll see though!!
