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.

I'm going to call it like it is, it's probably too late for any contest

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.

I understand you're only talking body design but I beleive that has been locked down already.

Edit: Regardless though I would like to see what people come up with.

I like that design, I hope the 6th Gen improve on the 5 th Gen design. I would love to see our body style in that smaller body. But we will see what GM does.

I do like the tail lights on that rendering. I could see something like that going on the next gen (or as you said, being part of the 2014 refresh).

Actually, I think overall I do like it. Not perfect but looks great. Looks like a possibility for a smaller 5th gen. I actually think the wheels are just OK....not a big fan of them but its just a rendering so no worries

This idea is going in the right direction; still a bit sharp-edged though. That's the thing about a muscle car... when the design trend is all sharp edges and jagged angles, it's hard to clear that out of your mind and start thinking in terms of muscles which are curves flowing into curves flowing into curves.

I'm working on pencil sketches of my own idea but I'm not an automotive artist so they're a bit crude and sucky but as I practice they're getting better. Soon as I feel they aren't too embarrassing I'll post them up.

I don't mind sharp edges if they are done well and add to the overall characteristic of the car rather than just being some random edge to fill in an area.

The 5th gen has lots of edges rather than smooth curves and I think thats what really makes the design striking from many angles. Not saying I couldn't love a design with more curves than edges though either. As long as it has the basic "thats a Camaro" design and looks muscular I'm game.
