Yes!

Not feeling any other designs. They look like a generic car from a video game. I want to see some design cues from the 5th gen but sharper lines, a little smaller and more futuristic looking.

Just a note on platform, size and weight - about which there seems to be some more speculation than I would have expected.

The Cadillac ATS 2.0T RWD is 3" shorter in wheelbase, 7.5" shorter overall, 4.5" narrower and near enough as makes no difference 400 lbs lighter than a V6 Camaro.

That's the difference, essentially, between the Alpha platform and the existing Zeta platform. If, in the end, the 6th Gen Camaro comes out as big and as heavy as the 5th Gen, it would be inexplicable.

No way it looks anything like this. The front end is a 5th gen. The car is shortened and changed lines ect. Not much change whatsoever. The rear end seems like an ass up in the air. You hit it from behind and youll have a HUGE mess on your hands with the amount of damage she'll take!

Nice drawings, however Im sure the 2016 will look ALOT more different, the kind of major changes that we've seen with each of Camaro's five generations. These drawings are closer to a refresh in my opinion.

I think the 2016 will be a "retro" of the 2010-2013 since the 2014 is hideous.

The front side markers are too visible from the front , try to make it shorter and move the headlights further out , like 50% to the outer edge compared with the present position
The lights under the the headlights are not at center line of that black are , try to move it to the outer corner , or to the center of that dark spot but also moving it to the edge
All of the above are just an opinion , and one have to try and try till one is happy with the( final ) look , then it's up to the aftermarket crowd to do what they do

Okay, after reviewing all the comments and reactions or lack thereof, it appears most don't want a refresh or evolution; they want something new. This idea departs completely from the 5th gen. I haven't done a front or back for it yet but I want to see what kind of reaction this gets before I invest anymore time into it. I want to see just 'how' new people want, so please make your comments/feedback constructive.

As you can see this has a pretty low fender line, which helps open up the cabin view so you won't feel like you're in a cave. The forward view would be spectacular. The rear window is widened near the bottom to help increase rear visibility and eliminate the traditional Camaro blind spots.

What do you think?

The side view is strongly reminiscent of a Ferrari Testarossa.

Not saying that's a bad thing... Just sayin'...

Looks like a Corvette to me.

I actually like the older one better but I do like the top view as far as the width of the body to the bottom of the window, this would look good on your older design.

Here's a slightly revised version with a bit more detail on the top view.

300 views in 24 hours and very few comments. I rather liked this one; surprised it didn't get more of a response.

It's interesting...all kinds of people are more than willing to post comments if they DON'T like something; i.e. the 2014 refresh... yet they are eerily quiet when you ask them "okay, then what DO you want?"

Back to the drawing board.........

I think lots of people have an idea in their head of what they would like, but usually that is based on what already exists. Coming up with something that is different enough to be called "new" or "revolutionary" is much tougher in my opinion.

Getting people to voice their opinions, or actually put their thoughts down on paper..(or in this case...in photoshop or some other program) is going to be pretty rare.

I'm not really feeling the new design. Honestly, if I could spend a good amount of time in PS working on changes on the TF4 BumbleBee Camaro, I feel like I could make it look decent. Thats just my opinion though.

Otherwise I do like some of the other renderings shown in the other threads, but those are all evolutionary, and not revolutionary.

If you're asking...I want a measurable "notch" between the rear window and rear deck and a horizontal roof line. I feel Fastbacks are for sports cars. I want a front fascia that's more like an F-86 or F-100 than an F-22. I want a rear fascia that says "Don't even try me".

You should realize by now everyone has different opinions on what it should look Like. No matter what you come up with there are going to be those that don't like what you designed and they will be the most vocal about it. Just look at any thread on the 2014 refresh or the Transformers 4 bumblebee and you will get the idea.
I love the fact you are trying to get opinions, but most of us cannot envision what we truly want to see, but we can say what we think does not work or give minor suggestions on your existing design. Seeing a 2 dimensional sketch also will not give a full feeling of the design you are going after and it makes it hard to see what a real car would look like.
