Another point to consider is the originality of the design. I find it irritating when (especially Chevrolet) tries to make their design more European looking (like the new Corvette). I don't like European Cars, rather I like American Muscle Cars.
...now that's a contradiction about design. I agree about what you say overall, but I don't see the C7 look being Euro. The 4th gen Camaro clearly had a more Euro Italian type look to me IMHO with the nose and headlights. I owned a 2002 35th Anniversary SS Camaro, 6 spd, and traded it in on the ZL1. Performance and cost comparision. The 35th SS price came in at 32K'ish, the ZL1 came in at 56K'ish. The 35th was 325 HP, the ZL1 is 580 HP. They can not be compared between ride quality, suspension, creature comforts, stability, traction, ride control, driver comfort, music, connectivity...and many other metric. The 35th Annv. SS was oldschool, all balls and no brains, it was a handfull and it was a twisty bendy architechtire from the factory. It was really quick though...I loved that LS1. The ZL1 is a full second faster with anyone behind the wheel, even better with a driver. I must say, having driven them all, the 5th Gen ZL1 is hands down World Champion Camaro of all time. The 5th Gen is retro '69, and we don't have a clue what the 6th will look like yet...do we?

My older sister, I still call her twisted sister, had a new 84 Z28 and a bronze 85 Z28 which she totaled in a racing incident lol. When I was 11 I used to steal the 85 and and drive all over the neighborhoods freaking out all my friends, but I would have to have it back before she woke up or she'd beat my ass lol. I guess that's why my first car was an 82 TA

You make some very good points. I would like to share the following video in which Ed Welburn talks about the design of the C7 Stingray being more "European" at about 2:20 into the video.

Mr. Welburn is a driving force within our community. I commend his attention to detail and his commitment to our GM products. My observations were subjective....as in judging art, opinions vary. And we have some gorgeous designs coming online. Good posts. Thanks!

They look alright but I'm done with the retro look don't get me wrong I've loved the Mustangs, Camaros and Challengers and the way they've made these new cars looks modern while still harping back to the classic cars but I don't want any more but now I want to see a new original versions of these cars.

I like the way the 6th Gen may resemble the 3rd Gen. Looks like the weight would be lessened.

I got a 2013, and I would trade in for either of these renderings.
after seeing so many over the past year now, we all should give a Hugh sigh of relief, and know that GM really did a great 6th gen model.

gotta agree with old school on post 101.
I don't think the 4th gen had more performance over the 5th gen.
its like my beloved 3rd gen . . . could never hold a candle to my 2013.
and man, I loved that 1990 Z-28!

That looks awesome!! Ive seen other "third gen inspired" 6th gen renders, & they really sucked. But this looks amazing. I love the 3rd gens!

in all honesty, i dont think the 6th gen should be inspired by anything. make something new.

those renderings do look awesome though.

I'd be all over that! My very first car was a 1987 sport coupe. I also owned a 1992 Z28. I'd love to have an updated third gen.
