Design Contest for 6th Gen

What do you guys think of a design contest for the 6th gen since so many people voiced strong feelings about the refresh?

I actually really like this idea.

I think the content should come from regular people you and me, or from students in automotive design, or really anyone except those affiliated with the final design with GM.

Why do I think that? A few reasons. 1) So GM can't really influence us in any way with their design. 2) I highly doubt GM would give us designs to vote on that actually end up looking like the real deal, unless they don't care to keep the design under wraps like car companies normally do.

I think the best way to go about this would be a rating system, so we can rate on a scale like 1 - 10, instead of only one design getting my vote. But honestly, I'd take whatever method we get.

Only problem I see with this, is that as ethusiasts, we may be overly biased against designs we are familiar with, rather than new or futuristic designs, but thats just a maybe. It may not be a big deal at all.

I also wonder if we aren't a bit late in the game for this, as I'm betting by now GM has some close to final designs under wraps, assuming the next gen will be a 2016.

I also think that some of the designs should incorperate some ideas about where to place certain things of the internals "ie" heater core, to where a simple fix should not be taking out major items to replace a 20 dollar part that will cost you over a thousand dollars.

That'd be great, but I don't think that is the purpose here. But I hear you!

If anybody has any design ideas feel free to pop them in here. Might be interesting to see what people come up with.

If I remember correctly the 5th Gen was the result of an internal GM design contest. All departments world wide were eligible to submit designs.

I would bet that the final design is over 95% set, and will not change at this point.

It'd be fun to see regardless of whether or not the design goes anywhere. I think it's a fun idea.

I'd say good idea...but perhaps an exercise in futility as far as what it will actually look like....Perhaps the contest winner would be based on who's design comes closest, but I think it's a little late in the game....Don't think they'd be changing platforms and announcing what model year ('16) it would be built unless they already had the car designed already...

But to that end...my favorite so far is a pic I saw of the next Barracuda...lol...
It looked like a blend of Corvette and 5thGen Camaro...I loved that look...can't find it, but it was a blue car...looked awesome...
