Being the owner of over 18 Camaro's in my time (4 of which were Gen1) the 2nd GEN Camaro is actually my favorite until Gen5. So while I respect your opinion I would disagree. The Gen1 Camaro is far more iconic and that is why I believe they made the Gen5 retro to that car. I do not believe they will make a retro model that harkens to the Gen2 Camaro but I do not believe it is because the Gen2 was not popular or a fantastic car. I just think it is time to move on....

...I tend to agree with you, having owned many Camaro's back in the day as well. The 2nd Gen IMHO, within it's first 3 years of introduction <70-73>, is as iconic as the 67-69's.

Half way through the first model year of the 2010 Camaro, C&D and Motor
Trend mags were still calling it a 2009 and saying it had an LS2....so I wouldn't take any of their speculation as "fact"....certainly not that picture.

I can't believe this is going to be produced. It's hideous. What a shame. That bowtie emblem is the worst thing they put on these cars.

Here's a revised side view. Quite a bit was changed. I completely resculpted the fender lines. The top windshield was moved backwards, roof line altered, side windows streamlined. This view has the 5-spoke wheels. The upper render is with the wheel well extensions and 19" wheels. The lower render is without the wheel well extensions and 20" wheels.

Doc, since its an SS, how about adding a hood scoop that is much more prevalent on the side view. Not voerly done but that can be seen.

You haven't read the thread, have you?

That is not a production car, nothing like that has been announced for production, and most importantly of all ... even if something like that does get produced, its not going to be the 6th generation Camaro. Its just Car & Drivers guess as to what the 6th gen may look like, based heavily off of the Code 130R concept.

I think Chevy will lower the fenders as depicted in the side views presented by DOC, and
I think Chevy will do this to meet pedestrian safety standards in Europe. This way they
will be able to compete with the Euro-Mustang of 2015...Ford did the same fender-height-lowering-thing to be able to sell the new Mustang worldwide (i.e. Europe, etc.)

The C&D rendering is therefore more FOS than real...between the nose and the fenders, it is WAY off what will happen.

Cute thing is that the front of the 2 year old 130R looks strikingly like the new Mustang. Throw an Aston Ford-in Grille..

This is what happens when you design ala trend-du-jour... elements on everyone's cars start looking annoyingly similar. Much of this is obviously intentional. If a particular style is wildly (or even just moderately nowadays) successful everyone else starts trying to copy it to cash in on the style "trend" rather than put in the time and effort to compete with something original. Companies are so desperate for sales, many will do practically anything to generate revenue. Compare this to 45 years ago when muscle cars were born; there was absolutely no question what company's products you were looking at from Jaguar, Porsche, Ferrari, Lotus, Mercedes, BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Cadillac, etc. Even though they may have been competing for the same market segment each manufacturer took pride in producing something that was uniquely theirs. They would have been embarrassed and ashamed to produce a me-too look-alike product to their competitor. That wasn't competing, that was plagiarizing.

That doesn't mean they weren't inspired by each other; they were but they still put in the effort to make their own products distinct. The same thing was going on in music. There were many bands on the scene, but there was no question about who you were listening to when you heard the Beatles, Beach Boys, Byrds, Moody Blues, Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, Eagles, Boston, etc. Now so much of the music scene sounds so similar it no longer matters who's actually performing; the songs, styles and music are so plastic and homogenized they're pretty much generic.

I'm encouraged by the C7; it shows a willingness to lead instead of follow and I hope that same spirit is alive and well in the Camaro design team. The new Mustang looks very safe and tame; no chances taken; nothing bold or exciting. That kind of approach never wins the gold medal. It may be good enough to take a silver or bronze, but the opportunity to take the gold is wide open now for the Camaro design team. I hope they really go for it!

I totally agree about the mustang playing it safe in design. I believe the design is not bad but it's not that I gotta have it design. The ball is in GM's court to make the 6th gen Camaro a stunner.
