A question that I don't think has been asked.

So most people have been speculating what the design of the 6th Gen could look like and wondering what it might include.

My question is what is it that you DON'T want to see in the 6th gen?

I don't want to see a return to the bubble back rear window/no rear-quarter window design. We had enough years of that.

A lot of weight, not having the same look of interior as all the other fleet of cars in Chevy, heavy cast wheels (worth a shot)

The 2014 taillights and put the word "Camaro" back on the steering wheel! Heck, the Impala has it's own logo.

Please remove the over sized front and rear bowties and bring back a modern version of the 70's and 80's Camaro flag emblem. Keep it small or leave it off; but please ditch the giant bowties. The Vette doesn't have them and neither should the Camaro imo.

Don't want to see:

1) L99 engine - I'd have bought an SS auto by now - but not with the inferior L99
2) Poor visibility
3) Bigger wheels/tires - I want to ride on comfortable rubber, not the rims
4) Summer tires - I'm not going "racin"
5) Heated seats - In Florida I need cooled seats
6) Retro dash/interior - Check out the 2014 Impala SS - copy dash and interior
7) GM hallmark: questionable reliability of new designs/models

I don't want to see a 6th gen Z28... but rather stick with the track dedicated Z/28. And I agree with removing the bow tie but I'm not a fan of the Red White and Blue emblem used on the 2nd and 3rd gens (not sure if used on the fourth gen?) The heritage grill looks just fine without a bow tie so I'd suggest designing a good looking grille that doesn't incorporate one.

It was used on the 4th gen and I liked it a lot. Maybe a modern version would be great. Just remove weight!!

Yes the red white and blue emblem was used on 4th gens.
Here is one from 95.

Thanks for the info. A Red White and Blue emblem was also used on Mustangs (not sure what generations) and it was very similar to the one used on the Camaro. So what pony car used them first?
In terms of emblems I like the SS in the center of the grille... maybe just leave the V6 with the bow tie. And I really wish engine displacement was advertised on the car (V8's only) in cubic inches
