Agreed. On my 4th Gen I remember one popping off while on the expressway - thank God it was late at night.

The 1st gen is very popular with collectors, no doubt, but they aren't the only ones that Chevy has to keep an eye out for. There are also a lot of folks into the 2nd gen because it doesn't have the "garage queen" tax due to being as highly desired by collectors. There is also remarkable difference in the looks and style of the 2nd gens in at least the front fascia, so a '71 looks almost nothing like an '81 even though they are both considered a second gen.

It would be a lot easier to remedy some of the (albeit irrelevant in my book) complaints about the current model by taking more influences from the 2nd generation, and stealing some stuff from the 3rd and 4th as well.

For instance, going to a hatchback style rear end. It may lose some stiffness, but if it's a smaller platform with less weight in the first place, then the chassis can be braced in other manners and still retain necessary strength. This would increase the visibility and storage of the vehicle, and allow a softer rear slope so that you have more room for rear passengers.

That said, the SS70 isn't my cup of tea because it's too dang tall and the body lines don't flow at all. I think the next gen will need more radical style designs, but can still take elements from the 2nd gen. If the overall height of the vehicle were something along the lines this rendering:



I think that the 2nd gen look could influence the style while still retaining the evolution of the overall design. If the vehicle will remain roughly with the same proportions it has now, though, then a more 3rd/4th influenced look would make more sense.

THAT WAS ACTUALLY TIGHT!!!!!

But I would think to float 3 to 10 teasers and see what sticks.... the fact is going somewhere never tread before might be the ticket!!!!

I do like the look of your pic though NICE!!!!!!

2016 Camaro HP

I love that my 2SS / RS has 426 hp stock (which will be increased by spring) but I am hopeful that there will be many more horses involved in the 2016 model. I know I am being greedy but damn if I dont love the power.

This is all speculation as of right now but the speculation is 2015 release as a 2016 model. This info hasn't come official from GM, but release dates even straight from them are subject to change.

You are very wrong about weight killing the 5th gens. They are by far the best Camaros ever. Strong at the drags and at the track. I doubt the 6th gens will be 3,600 pounds. If so, nice, but even 3,600 pounds is still a heavy car.

The best thing Chevy can do is make the visibility better and give us a factory GPS. Power is no big deal. You can have as much as you want with the current car.

Chevy will be hard pressed to build a car that is a bigger hit in the looks department. They will have to be careful not to mess it up. It is fun to speculate about the next Camaro, but the current car is so good they can take their time and get it right. Enjoy the 5th gen in the mean time. It is no hardship.

If that target weight were so vitally important to the car & market segment, the Mustang would be outselling the Camaro. But last I checked, the Camaro's lead was increasing.

I think he is speaking from an enthusiast's standpoint. Lower weight is never a bad thing. Additionally, if you never strive to improve - you don't.

The SS70 (gen2 style) would lend itself to T-tops. Not having a back side windows helps the concept. GM has stated the Gen5 was designed to have a vert in mind. When the Gen6 does start showing up, it'll be interesting to see if they have T-Top or Targa roof in mind. But then why compete against the Corvette. And then the new Mustang style roof line will be interesting to see. So far I'm hearing Gen5 Camaro styling; lower roof line and broader back shoulders.

As stated before, the new platform for the Camaro will be smaller than the current chasis. Dropping some weight is almost certain. We can also expect a direct injected V8, and there might be better info on this engine on the vette forums.

If they base the car on the ATS 'Alpha' platform, < 3,600lbs should be doable, (and expected for the V6) since GM has already said they ATS weighs several hundred lbs less than its BMW competitor, which already weighs less than the current Camaro. Looks like anywhere from 3,400 to 3,600 range from the info I've seen thus far.

You are correct...but why keep the Camaro a boat anchor if you don't have to??? Just because Camaro is outselling Mustang or might look better (to most people), doesn't mean its OK to let the mustang pull further and further ahead in the performance segmentt. I've even read the next mustang could be even lighter than the current one....Camaro needs to lose weight and shrink (but not much!) in size. Alpha platform is perfect for that.
