Not sure what it is, but the doors look very short horizontally. Compare those to what is on the current car and they don't seem nearly long enough for a coupe.

I think you've got an attractive design here. I really do like it. It looks better from the side than I thought it would. I actually prefer the side view over the front 3/4 view.

But for me, the final design would have to come with more curves, more edges, more to look at. Its good, but so far not getting my blood pumping.

Even though I just said above that I do like the side view, I'm also worried that the newest profile with the raised belt line in the front may be straying too far away from what I feel the Camaro heritage is. Its attractive, but doesn't say Camaro to me.

I will continue to follow this just to see where it goes

I think because the front edge of the door is behind the side mirror instead of in front of it like it should be.

Based on feedback here's the latest. The side view and D1 are the same setup. D3 has the fender flares and raised rear fender hip as requested.

I gave the D1 views bronze colored wheels which I think helps warm up the look of the car. I put the traditional 3 vents on the side in front of the rear wheel. I also move the front door line forward as requested to lengthen the door.

I've struggled like crazy with the roof line on the side view. You wouldn't believe how easy it is to move a line just a slight bit and suddenly you've gone from a Camaro to a Mustang fastback. I'm not entirely happy with the location and side-view profile of the cabin. I've moved it forward, backward, up, down and I still can't find that sweet spot where it looks "right". But hey... it's a work in progress.

It's great to see the participation and that people care! Inspiration is what this whole thread is supposed to be about.

Because the window edge at the front of the door is so low I made a conscious decision to put the outside mirrors on the fender in front of the door. That may or may not work with the driver view inside the car but that's easily changed and they can be on the door too. I was even thinking of moving them forward onto the fender above the wheel like a race car but since that would be really cool looking it's probably not legal lol.

I think you can play with the shape of the quarter glass a little maybe raise the angle of bottom edge to get that Camaro triangle shape and use more (heavier) C Pillar to stretch the back without the fastback look.

I the roof line looks really great! I don't think it needs much more tweaking, although I'm not saying you couldn't possibly make it any better either.

LOL welcome to the addiction; no matter how many changes I make, I keep messing around with it too hehehe.

HOWEVER...that being said....this is getting REAL CLOSE to what I envision for a 6th gen Camaro.

I tweaked the roofline for the umpteenth time and I think I finally got it this time; this looks "right". I put the suggested lower body reverse coke bottle waist line in. I moved the side mirrors to the doors. The side view now has brakes. What brand are they? Why they're the STOP! brand of course! A little designer humor...I know... very little; don't quit your day job, etc. This design stays with the sleeked down upper rear body line which works well with the lower reverse coke bottle waist.

I think I'm going to leave this alone and start working on an appropriate back. You know... modding a design like this is almost as satisfying as modding my car and it's a helluva lot cheaper!

Looks good. I cut my a pillar a bit deeper because it lengthens the look of the back ala testatossa. It is easy to get addicted but I think you have nice design and I hope you use 4 small round tailights ala 70-73 camaro. It has always been one of my favorite designs.

Okay here's the last last revision (I think). Fixed the area at the base of the windshield. Added lettering to the tires. Fixed the lower front side view to match the perspective view. Adjusted the door shape.

That's it. I really mean it this time. Actually I want to do a 3/4 perspective from the rear view so that along with an actual rear view will be my next project.

Looks good but I am not feeling the gills as they are drawn, I think they would look better longer, thinner, stair stepped and curved to match the wheel arch, like we have now.

Nice! Now I really like the side profile...completing the "reverse" coke bottle look as you called it is pretty dang cool if you ask me. That will add more of the character in the side I was looking for in your design.

I'll be curious to see the rear end view.

If I had to put my money on the final real design from GM...I'm expecting there to be more modern/futuristic looking "vents" as I'll call them with LED lighting on the front end...sort of like how the SS sedan and the new 2015 Mustang is looking. But I'm not sure I could come up with a good design for that myself that looks modern without going overboard. You've got a good template to work with for sure.

You know I debated about that. I wasn't sure if that would be too dated a look; too retro. This particular design seems to lend itself better to less curvy gills. Believe it or not the ones I have on there now are curved somewhat; just not as much as the 5th gen. These are intended to be functional not just a styling gimmick so they need to be wider than the 5th gen gills.

Anyways here are 3 versions; D1a has your idea with the gills taller and more curved. D1b has my idea with straighter gills but I did make them narrower and taller. D1c has a NACA style side scoop just to show what that might look like.

This is it; I've spent hours going over details to see if anything looks off but I can't find anything at this point. The only thing I'm not 100% happy with is the front running lights in the grill, but that's a minor point. The major shapes are done. I've finished various details and included an aero package of sorts. This looks "right" to me. I'm working on a top view and from there I'll do a rear view, then a 3/4 perspective rear view. By the way... I took the red stripe on the side out while working on something and the car still looks good without it, so that could be an optional graphic.
