That grill is not aggressive looking at all. When I saw the new mustang I thought it looked overly aggressive.

I love how so many people have such strong opinions on the look of the thing lol. What exactly do you see that you like or don't like?? The darn thing is covered in camo.

It is not wise to judge a book by its cover. You're lliterally judging the thing by its cover. I think the anxiety and lack of knowledge on it is screwing with people's rational thinking.

Yup. When the first spy shots came out there were people here thar thought it was a pontiac lmao. I think Chaz has it about 80% right, that other 20% is going to make a big difference.

I think the reason people say that is because the 5th gen made such a huge splash with it's look. It was unlike anything out there. It was a head-turner. It was THAT car.

That's how a lot of people see the camaro now. The kind of car that is a the front of muscle car aesthetics. That is different, ahead of it's time.

With all due respect, the current Camaro design isn't a timeless one like the 911. It already feels long in the tooth after 6 model years and a refresh.

Visual refresh 2.0 isn't all that interesting to me. I was hoping for something that was eye catching, that would be the same kind of forward design - a head turner.

What makes it worse to me is that with each refresh they seem to be homogenizing the design more and more - it stands out less with each change. If chazcron is even remotely close, this is a car that's starting to blend in more and more, not stand out more and more.

I get refinement and performance arguments, but this car didn't get so much attention because it was refined. It got attention because it looked really good and like nothing else before it.

The mules and renders and speculation doesn't share that. It's in a werid place that it looks close enough to the current car that I don't feel the need to upgrade based on looks, but it's different enough that I'm glad I have the one I do because they just seem to keep watering it down.

you nailed it, its the details that make the car.

5th gen prototypes were the same, people bashed them like crazy, when they saw the final product they were all extremely happy for the most part.

Gm will nail this one as well, I'm just hoping they can do something great with the Tail lights, and not seem like an after thought, the front end on the 6th looks mean already

The 5th gen was given ONE refresh which looks just fine for my tastes since I belong to a generation that use to get a model refresh each and every year when I was a kid growing up. Some people like it, some don't, thats totally acceptable when it comes to individual taste.

The 5th gen design inspiration was the 1st gen and it was refreshed every year with similar minor updates for all 3 years and they did not alter the basic design language but they enhanced enough of the car to keep it fresh. This would be very expensive in todays manufacturing climate.

5th gens still stand out in a crowd and continue to draw ooh's and ahh's from kids and adults alike, it has not grown old but it is time to move forward be it an evolutionary design or not.

I'm anticipating the new model to be a clean sheet upgrade as it relates to driving and performance dynamics from the present car. The design will be a bonus regardless of how far they decide to go from what we have today.

This car will make all you "Nancy's", no disrespect to any actual female Nancy's, change your tune once the car and info is finally revealed. This car will not disappoint.

So, I did some amateur enhancing. I still think the shadow Camaro seems way swoopier than the clunky camo'd California Camaro.

The reflection on the roof is not conforming to the top of the greenhouse and you can see a hint of a kink where the top of the windscreen is.

I'm done modding my '10 till I get a definitive look at the final product. If it something that just blows me mind and is worth upgrading to then I'm all over it if not I may just trade my SS to get '12 zl1 or so.

Are you saying the camo is more believable or the shadow?
