..I will give you that premise...but go back to my thread and see my commentary....it looks outlandish...and I will add cartoonish or movie propish. It is so far out there to gather any thought of what the final production would look like. If you think it will carry over any or much of those characteristics from asome wall hung proto design drawing I'm not seeing it. Just sayin'...

I don't know...after looking at it for awhile it's definitely a cleaned-up and more streamlined version of the 5th gen, and the artist's name is Steve in the lower right so this isn't one of the 5th gen concept drawings. The fact that there's a big bold explanation of what that image represents kind of indicates that the image is showing something that's "midway through development". And it does say CAMARO... The final grill opening would be smaller, wheels smaller, cabin taller but that may very well be an unintended peek at where the 6th gen styling is going.

And considering where that clay model shows they were in the development of the Stingray which had to be a couple of years back, that "something" Camaro was "midway through development" awhile ago. Probably pretty much done at this point.

There's no question in my mind that the 2014 "refresh" was strictly the result of the Z/28 project and they decided to use those body changes across the line to help recover the development costs. The difference between the way the refresh front and back look on the Z/28 and all the other models is like night and day. That strategy worked and was doable for 2014... but if that giant graphic on the wall is correct, they were already working on the styling for the 6th gen when they rolled out the Z/28 and the 2014 "refresh".

We'll see. If they do the front right as far as size of the grille and styling, that front will look super. It's the back I'm worried about. They really need an awesome fighter-jet back, not something from an Impala.

Will they show something this fall with availability and pricing in the spring of 2015?

but how many of the 'so many others' were on the wall at GM's design studio?


Just curious, what is the other blue render bottom right corner?

^..good point, and Doc is very articulate I might ad. But, my argument is we have seen so many renderings, so closely grouped to one another, that one is almost blind to what the outcome may be. Whether or not it's on a GM wall in a media pic. I see no hints in the future design, just sayin''

I lime it in general , but to me some how it has a little Stangish in it
The depressions on the door and front fender and the ridges on the hood
Take that out and we should have a more Camaroish car

How do you really feel...lol. I just don't hope it isn't a overreaction to the 14' models tiny grill opening that so many people complained about.

That's how I really feel lol. It's kind of like an early 2nd gen look but of course modernized. Sad to say but if they're going to go 2nd gen look, the orange with white stripes 5th gen/2nd gen look would be better.

The look on this car is just not there. Side view, rear view? Not bad. I'd never buy it, but it's nice. The front end just looks like a 10 yr old was asked to produce the next camaro and this is what came out lol.

IMO that is NOT a Camaro!

I think that render is of the 5Gen.

The top right corner render has potential.
