If anything they should bring that out as a Cruze Sports Coupe.

Please no 68, might as well go 67. a MUCH better yr both in looks and what started it all. But no retro. I think you'll see some 5th gen in the design, but overall it'll be a much different looking car. 9/10, we're not going to like the look as much as a 5th gen.

Umm...all body panels are the same/interchangable from 67 to 68. Only slight variations are the grille and the 67's had the little quarter vent window.
Now a 69 has a totally different body from the 67/68's.

The 5th gen is a good mash-up of both.

I have a feeling that we will get a evolution of the 5th gen, but the overall 'look' will feel the same.

Won't be the catastrophe you are imagining. From the center of the car subtract an inch from each side. I bet we will barely notice.

Didn't see this before I posted.... often the movie folks do these on their own, but not always and it appears Chevy had their hand in this one.

Considering TRU140S is a FWD Delta-II car, it has a better chance of being a next-gen Cruze coupe than a Camaro.

I still think the Transformers 4 is the Gen6, ie 2014 Gen5 cut to fit on an ATS chassis with some updates.
The T4 Camaro is obviously a Zeta-based 5th gen. It just has a different front fascia and body kit. Dimensions are 100% Zeta.

It needs to.

You do realize Camaro is currently built on a full size sedan platform? When Zeta was conceived GM was planning on building everything from an Impala to a next-gen Buick Lucerne to a flagship Cadillac sedan on it. Hell the current Caprice (Zeta LWB) is a land barge.

Shrinking it down to fit Alpha and the weight reduction that will come along with that is only a good thing.
