You might not be too far off. I'm certain GM has used NASA as inspiration in the past.

LOL All in fun.....

Here are 3 variations. View A is trying out side vents and side markers. Views B and C are similar except in view B I'm trying out an idea for a stylized front side marker light, but the back is not quite as stylized. View C experiments with side marker lights and I clipped the top of the rear wheel well to create the visual impression of the line extending from the side vents, even though there's no actual line there. I also gave slightly more definition to the line around the rear vents in view C compared to view B, and view C has the CAMARO letters in black instead of chrome.

Right now view C is my favorite. That car would look good in white, silver, red, yellow, metallic grey, a frosty metallic champagne blue, butterscotch orange, and an SR71 style black.

Been lurking for a while on this thread. Doc, great work. I really like the rendering just above (B) with the non traditional side markers.

Keep up the good work.

Thank you! That idea popped into my head when I was thinking of strobe lights. I don't recall seeing anything like this before so I thought I'd give it a try. I've taken it a bit further with these two renders; view C having a modified front version that's shaped to look like the lines flow from the front grill, moved back and with more space between the orange bars.

These renderings kinda remind me of a car from the 80s

Now we are cooking with peanut oil! I like B, looks great. I was working on with paint and made the vents a little bigger, kind of rough but you get the idea. I do however like it smaller also. Your marker lights look sharp, very unique.

I see a lot of NSX influence in your designs. That's nothing to be ashamed of though. These cars were first built in the 90's and still turn heads.

I agree, it is a very clean design and yet still holds up to this day. Here is a little change on the holden coupe.

I've been working on some fairly drastic changes to the above render, I hope you won't mind. I'm not done though. I intended to do the 'hip' only, but it quickly snowballed, so I figured I'd just show one with the hip only while it's still relevant.

Wow you REALLY want to carve into the side! lol

Yeah there is a slight bit of that in the fender line. That type of fender line shows in more than a few cars; one of my favorites is the Ferrari F50.

Okay so you prefer the more discreet fender flare. I'll bring that one back and do a front version.

Feel free to post your suggestions. And thank you for caring and making the effort!

This one is for you...raising the side detail that high really eats up the side of the car lol...I don't know... what do you think? I also made the fog lights white which it looked like you preferred. I stuck with my strobe side marker light idea to see if it works with your idea. The 3 light segments compliment the 3 side vents. I'm still not sold on fender flares; so far I like the idea of going with a clean pure side without even a fender lip because EVERYBODY else is doing fender flare bulges. You can't differentiate yourself from the competition unless you do something different than what they're doing.

While I did calm the flare some, that isn't what I meant. However, a matching front is desperately needed.
This might better illustrate what I'm talking about. It's still subtle and flows smoothly with the rest, but gives it a more aggressive stance:
