Yeah but it doesn't mean they don't listen to feedback. And even if they fall short on the first design, bad sales would motivate them to do a refresh real quick so there's still some value in submitting ideas I would think. The mechanicals are probably already set. I'm guessing body styling and interior design could still be changed at this stage.

I'd love this idea. There are plenty of bright artists on this forum and with collective ideas I'm sure GM would listen. It's all about initiative. Don't wait for GM to ask, just have to do it. I'm sure GM has concepts and things of that nature but it doesn't hurt for them to maybe grab a few ideas from a lucky member on this forum.

I agree. I'm sure they have exterior and interior design in the middle to late stages already, but I'm sure they can and still will be making changes and tweaks.

I hope they do a good job with the 6thGen...but I'm prepared and looking forward to a totally new look for the car...It's gonna be different, imo, waaay different from what we're used to, including the '14 re-fresh...

To replace my HUD light bulb...would have cost $2000

I like this too.

To me, lower part of the bumper needs work although the lower leds look cool. Upper grille and headlights are sweet.

Hood may need more character. I hate a flat hood on a muscle car.

Rear end is chopped too much. Add a little length back there and add a nice rear spoiler which all muscle cars should have and you have got yourself something here.

Yeah, that is a great start! I wonder how difficult those headlights would be to make?

I agree with this. Also they should make the rear rounded on the top like a '67 as a base. RS and SS (though Im unsure as to "SS" on a 6th gen with the Chevy SS coming out) would have spoilers to compliment the car as well as make it more appealing. I would prefer some type of rounded headlights over pointed . The door panels are too curvy. Its a start, now it needs some refining.

I think this would be a great excersize just so some of the forum members can see what it feels like to have your idea of perfection sujected to open forum criticism. Some of our members are really, really hard on the designers that help shape what we get. Opinions are subjective and everyone has their own agenda and priorities.

My favorite genral vague comment on here is, "The ______ (insert part of Camaro here) needs to be completely redone because they way it is completely sucks. C'mon. Get real. I rode in my buddy's Mustang last wekend and blah, blah, blah."

I've always thought, "Great. Sketch up you ideas and show us something better."

I suspect we will find out a reason most of us are carpenters, doctors, bean counters, etc. Designing things with common aestetic appeal and functionality is not easy.

GM probably listens to their customers more than any car company, esp when it comes to the Camaro.

It is a cool idea and would be fun to see everyones ideas but I am 99.9% sure the 6th Gen is already for the most part full designed and it isn't I wouldn't want a car GM only spent two years on!

Well we're only talking about the body design; if somebody comes up with a great body style design I don't see why they might not be interested in seeing it.
