Now that padding is off, what say you?

Has this affected your likelihood of buying a 6th gen?

I'm rather liking it. Still need to see headlights and tail lights. I would prefer the slat-styled grill evident on the previous group to the honeycomb style grill on this latest mule. Perhaps those are just trim differences between the T4 car and the V8 car?

From what I see, stance of a performance car, looking good.

I think with this new gen GM is reaching farther outside the "Muscle car", or Pony car segment and targeting M3 and AMG...maybe?...or is that ATS-V, CTS-V territory?

Idk...whatever it is...I like it.

I can't vote for the top pick, b/c it really is going to come down to the details we won't see until reveal before I can make a final decision, but I do like what I'm seeing.

I think GM will knock it out of the ballpark like the5th gen, however, I don't think I would buy another.

I think its time for myself to jump to the next level, which would be the Stingray

I am concerned that the front end is going to end up looking like a Corolla.

So far so good. It's the interior that will seal the deal.

There is still PLENTY of padding underneath the vinyl wrap on that car..... I'll reserve judgement till we see the actual car, but it's looking very promising.

Not impressed at all. Looks like a 5th Gen refresh more so then a new 6th Gen. I was expecting more of a revolutionary look I guess. I didn't want a smaller "looking" car, so like I had said previously, Ill just try to get a killer deal on the 2015. But to each their own. As long as you're happy is all that matters. I think I waited soooooooooooo long to see it and was just expecting a bit more. We shall see though.

I understand that. I read that a long time BUT I was hoping for something a little more. I mean it looks like all the lines are the gonna be the same (side panels, fish gillls, etc.) and looks like they shortened the rear and just basically changed the front end and rear so again, looks more like a 5th gen refresh.

I'm kinda turned off, but I'm sure it will look clean and perform good. I'll just keep my 5th gen a little longer.

As long as that tape "pillar" in the grille is just that, tape, NOT a pillar, and it sounds like sex with Rachel Starr on wheels then I will gladly trade my 11' for that bad girl

To me it just looks too much like a mix between MY2014 and TF4. I really hope a lot of what we see is fake and the 6th Gen will look more independent from 5th Gen.

I like parts of it, but the slab sides and tiny windows seem to emphasize my biggest complaint about the 5th gen, and actually make them worse. I am remaining open until I see how the character lines mold the profile (for good or ill).

If the base '16 Camaro SS, has the same or better handling performance than the actual 1LE, count me in and specially that performance is offered on an automatic transmission then it will be great for me. I will be the first one in the line to get one.

When you say "padding is off". Are you talking about the thread with the vert that more exposed & the coupe at the end of the thread? Or is there a pic somewhere with ALL padding off?
