I would take this in a heartbeat. It looks even more hungrier for mustangs than the 5th gen was!

...exactly!. The renderings we have seen of the next Gen Camaro does not fit that same evolutionary category IMHO...just sayin'. The Vette broke some ground with it's body styling, functionality, and appearance. Sex sells. And it's sexy. Will the Camaro follow suit? I think so...

Here is what you have to consider.

It is nearly impossible to come out with some so complicated as an automobile or truck that everyone will be madly in love with. It can very quickly become polarizing.

On the flip side you can try to make a car or truck so neutral as to not offend anyone but those aren't the cars people fall madly in love with. Generally we call those Hondas or Toyotas.

I saw an internal comparison one time on the Full Size Pickups compared to the Dodge (at that time). The chart showed very few people disliked the Chevy while a huge number of people disliked the Dodge. But on the other hand the "love meter" showed luke warm feeling for the Chevy but equal love to the hate for the Dodge. Which one still sells better?

Not saying this is always the case, but if you try to design to not offend you will more than likely come up with a product which elicits only moderate passion.

I may not want to feel passion for my Impala or Malibu, but I sure want to feel it for my Camaro or Corvette. And the risk is you won't make everyone happy.

Yep. Pretty much describes exactly the process/reactions I got with my own concept design experiments here on the forum.

They just upped the sticker price on the C7 by $2,000 because it's selling so well.

I think the back end looks great and I wish they didn't jack up the 2014 Camaros just to differentiate them from the Vette.

I mean look at the rear fascia of the new Corvette, what were they thinking?

Amen brother. That rear is God Awful..........

Yeah they ruined the C7 so bad that sales in February 2014 were ONLY 149% greater than the C6 was in February 2013
Just imagine what they would have been if they had not ruined it!!!!

Cadillac’s new portfolio of sedans total sales improved 48 percent. The award-winning ATS sedan had its best total sales month since its launch, and 72 percent of ATS buyers in December were new to the Cadillac brand.
Also last month, Cadillac began deliveries of the 2014 CTS Vsport sedan to customers. The rear-wheel-drive CTS Vsport is equipped with the all-new 420-hp Cadillac Twin-Turbo V-6 engine and eight-speed transmission. CTS sales were up 75 percent over November 2013.

Sounds like they picked a good platform for the next Camaro! A 420 hp V6 sounds good too...if they can get the price point down in the low 30s.

GM always stumbles with style

The problem I have with GM is what they always do, ruin any style they have. The taillights on 2010-2013 Camaros were SO popular, they actually changed the design of the taillights on other models to look very similar. THEN, they change the Camaro's lights to this abomination we see today. It makes no damn sense.
