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.

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!!

It's a concept. To add to that its a concept for a movie. To add even more to that, it's obvious it's on the 5th Gen platform. Relax.

I believe unlike the first Transformers, this will not tell the tail of what the new Gen 6 will look like.. I believe this is something specially made for this movie. It looks like a heavily modified Gen 5.. I think to keep Bumble Bee's shape and contour that we are use to. I think GM is trying to throw us off.. No way this Chevy Cavalier looking car is a Gen 6... At least I hope not..

Gm will not pass on the opportunity to create buzz with this movie. Therefore I do think this Transformers car is a gen6 or at worst a test for the styling. Looks to me like a next step from the 2014 changes. We otherwise won't see a thing until the next Mustang is presented.

gonna go ahead and go out on a limb here. the 6th gen will look nothing like this. only things it will have in common are that they both have 2 doors, 4 wheels, same amount of seats, steering wheel, pedals, shifter, engine and anything else that a car needs to have, to function properly.

I like the headlights and the roofline is not that bad either. Either the new lights on the back are growing on me or they just work on this for some reason.

The front looks like parts were squished and then stretched. Not a fan of the lines under the headlights and the transition from the end of the door to the back of the car is not that smooth. It is an abrupt change that detracts from the rest of the car.

Like others I think there may be bits of pieces of this that go forward but doubt that this is the final version of the 6th gen. Also agree that fog/driving lights are needed. Perhaps the thinner LED ones to kind of tie more into a modern design.

I am very concerned. I hate the back of the 2014 refresh rear. No longer looks great and no longer looks unique. I do NOT like the front of that movie car. Looks very generic. Not special at all. The 2014 Vette looks pretty good from alot of angles but the rear is hedious. The 2014 Vette was supposed to be lighter but is actually a little heavier. The big thing the new Camaro needs is to be a little smaller and alot lighter (and fix the refresh mistakes). I'm concerned they will ruin the styling and won't meet the expectations people have in weight savings. Chevy hasn't been hitting homeruns lately.

This design is nice but it just doesn't say Camaro like the Current model. Yeah, the headlights are cool but it just feels wrong to me. The headlights look like they have a foreign influence. It doesn't look like it should be Chevy. Maybe I'm just too old fashioned. I'm sure this design will grow on me. I actually Like the Tail lights because they look like a modern take on the 69 Camaro!!
