Anyone else notice the similarity in the lower body sculpting?

I did. But I think it more closely resembles the 5th gen's character lines.

I'm no expert, but if it were a six bolt pattern, then you could go bolt to bolt, but since there are only five...

Does it look like it may be more pronounced on the Camaro - looks more drastic on Camaro?

The 5th gen is narrow at the front getting wider towards the back before tapering quickly back at the quarter panel.
These both are wider at the front and gently taper back to the quarter panel, opposite from the 5th gen.

Yes more pronounced but a similar shape.

I wouldn't swear by this, but I believe it is pretty close.

You're right. Here's a few more shots supporting your eye.

But I wouldn't go so far as to say it's like the ATS...I think the ATS's character line is far more civil and mellow. I agree with DenverTaco that's very drastic and "in your face" on the Camaro. The camouflage is hiding some of the attitude.

We will most likely see a wheelbase around the size of the ATS-L but it won't be derived from the ATS-L since the extra length for that was added behind the driver to give the back seat more leg room. There looks to be more distance from the A pillar to the front wheels giving the Camaro the longer front hood look.


I believe that the wheelbase will be similar if not identical from spying the seating position of each driver in the pics shown above. I also see similarities in both cars wheelwell to front edge of door opening length and also rear edge of door opening to the leading edge of the rear wheelwell opening.

But I guess after getting whooped in performance from every angle for the past 5 years; the prospect of dealing with it all over again, but with 200+ less pounds would make me nervous too,
I wouldn't go that far. GT500. Brash, hard to drive, whatever... it was what we all wish we could have in terms of factory equipped straight line performance.

I don't recall Ford coming out publicly w/ anything until we saw the car and even then, not a word on weight, but they did say it would handle better and it does.

Where/when did Ford mention anything losing weight, or gaining weight. I only recall magazines and "tuners" saying.

I honestly think gm is comparing the heaviest 5th gen to the lightest 6th gen to get those numbers. I hope dearly that I'm wrong but I doubt a 5th and 6th gen will weigh 200lbs difference when having the same options. Maybe 50-100lbs at best.
Nahh... you can rest assured, the 6th gen SS will be 200ish lb lighter than the 5th SS, base vs base.

The only test I'd consider really truly done was when Randy Pobst drove them each around the same track, but even then, he did it on different days. However, the new just smashed the old.

But at the same I fully expect a loaded (3SS?) with MRC to weight at least 3900-4000lbs still.
I nearly agree, but I expect the heaviest SS(excluding high performance packages) coupe to weigh in around 3800.
