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.

The refresh should've looked something like this I think.

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.

I love this rendering and would really want to see some of this in the 6th gen.

I was thinking the same thing. Most of this rending looks good but seems like the rear end/shoulder bolster area just went...blah. Like it got narrow towards the rear. And definitely not liking the FRS tail lights. Maybe with a slightly modded C7 vette tail lights?
