Likely looking at one half of one die in a 4 or 5 die line up to stamp the one piece body side.

We are not looking at a panel.
I didn't mention a press?

I think it shows more changes/features than the camo'd cars in that area....Roof line and windshield for sure....Rear quarter looks more drawn in from wheel flares, suggesting smaller dimensions....

...I think Chaz's rendors need to show that roof line and overall length of the car as different....

Yeah, part of a monster progressive die for sure, only the male half of one segment,...still could get gills and much more later on...

I think it's a cool find.....hopefully the guy who got the shot won't get fired....I don't think it's that big of a secret let out...


Just sayin' the roofline in the die looks more pronounced than what we see here in the rendors....Maybe....

That's one of those things most won't like at first simply because it's different from what we're used to..and grow to like as we see more of the car...looks a little off to me too, seeing how that arch really makes a carmaro. But I won't pass judgment until I see one in person!

The design of the complete car may tie that line in juuuust right. Just gotta wait and see..

I bet most who blatantly complained about it looking too much like a 5th gen begin to retract their comments!! NEVER judge a book by its COVER or a CAR by its CAMO!

These styling people are killing me! The qtr window on my SS is good for style only, you can't see anything through it, this one will be even worse. I honestly don't know what their thinking is on this car.

You can't tell in the image because of the angle. The rake of the back pillar and seating position will determine visibility, not the back 1/4 window. Also wasn't the size of the back window the real problem with aft visibility?

wow
just wow

feel bad for the guy who leaked it

This seems to be gunning for the fast back design ford put out

Im sure the finished product will look great no doubts, but the 5th gen design is Timeless

There is nothing in this picture that indicates the size of the 1/4 glass opening. The a-side is probably about the same as today. We just won't know the size of it until we see a finished panel....................and that we likely won't see.

Agreed it won't be an improvement based on the a-side opening but we see nothing here that indicates it will be worse.

Yeah, it will depend on who leaked it. Internal or external. GM employees used to have to have the camera covered on their cell phones. This policy may come back. Anyone that was visiting had to have the camera covered on their phone and it was always checked on departure. Covered with a film that indicates if it was peeled back or removed that is.

Have you ever sat at the barber as a kid and half way through a haircut (with just the sides mowed by the hair clippers), you'd think to yourself, "damn, if we had a fire right now and I had to run out like this, everyone would laugh at me." That's what's happening now with the people bashing the design without seeing the complete car... "The quarter window sucks," "the bumper sucks," "I don't like the headlight." I can't wait to see this thing whole both inside and out. I think everyone will shut right up and forget they said anything bad about it.

And it better come quick too because im starting to look at other new coupes out there and they look more appealing the longer I wait. I love my camaro but damn come in Chevy...

You thinking it can compete in anyway with the new Mustang is a joke. Ford redesigns cars to be better, faster, more efficient. GM redesigns cars to make them cheap and profitable. Again LMFAO.

I also found that a "Jason D Babbitt" lives in Lansing Michigan, or the town over, Grand Ledge....
