Well folks.... I've decided to call it good on this project. I've already put way more time into it than I'd originally intended but it was a lot of fun and I learned a great deal; time well spent I think. I'm going to put what I've learned with this software to good use elsewhere. I'm guessing the 6th gen Camaro has probably already been designed including the body styling. I hope it's great. I wish I could build my version; it would be a beautiful, sleek, elegant car. I'm not sure that's what the overall market wants though; it may be too refined of an image. It seems from reading what people say that they want something that's rougher around the edges. My design would open up the market to an area it probably doesn't reach now; a more affluent demographic, but I don't know if my design would appeal to the "rough-around-the-edges" crowd... it might lose them. Hard to tell.

At any rate, I sincerely thank all the people who took the time to participate, who read through all the many posts; the many thousands of views from those who didn't comment but by being interested enough to make all those views, it gave me encouragement to continue. It's been a very enjoyable and educational journey. I've done enough to give anyone who looks a pretty good idea of what I had in mind. I don't think GM will use it (although if they did I would certainly buy one! lol) but hopefully it gave them some useful ideas they might not have had otherwise.

I've already been working on some sketches for Camaro 2020 so in the not too distant future I'll start a new thread once I have something in 3D to look at. I know that's pretty far out in the future but maybe if we give them some useful feedback early enough, we can help them design Camaro 7G.

Thanks again, one and all!

For your next project how about doing a rendering of how you think Ford should have designed the new Mustang. I think that would be interesting.

That Concept is pretty sweet, kind of the direction I wish they'd go. It looks I-ROC inspired. I did not like fords new mustang design , then again I really never have the last few gens of the mustang, thats probably why I own a Camaro in the first place

The straight sides bother me. One of the reasons I love my current car is her curvy "hips". Also, these headlights wouldn't be able to hold Halos would they?

LOL. Now that I've done one, these concepts take a lot of time. I'm not a Ford fan but if Ford wants to pay me I'm absolutely certain I can do better than what they just rolled out.

Thank you! This concept would be a sleek and beautiful car if made for real.

There's a lot more curve in the sides than you can probably see in these renderings. It actually has a long fender "hip" going back to front; it's just not short and bulgy. If you've read through the thread you'll see the reasoning behind the look.

There aren't halos on these lights; they're rectangular quads. The "halo" if you will has been replaced by the LED strip beneath them.

Doc its been great watching this project, and I was there at the very beginning! The time you've put into this is staggering for sure! Good stuff!

Thanks for sharing your vision for the next Camaro. It was fun!

Just viewing this for the first time, finding from a random google search. I thought it was an interesting project with some good thoughts..

While hardly anybody with decent vision of their own will agree with every aspect of anyone's design project, this project does have some shape cues that look like something GM could one day call a Camaro. The larger window openings definitely speak toward more practicality, which many modern car designs lack when trying to see outside of it.

While I'm in agreement than many side shape cues of the design are n't very Camaro like, The front fascia design & rear tail lights in particular catch my attention.

As the owner of probably the weirdest vehicle on here, I wouldn't mind your front fascia design in place of my now over 4 year old front nose.
swap. Also wouldn't mind your tail light design in my bedcover, which I am designing custom lights for, doing away with the vette tailgate lights.
How bout that for my next design change?
current front view.

That has to be the most unusual Camaro mod I've ever seen lol. I appreciate your appreciation of my project. I may revisit this design since I've gotten MUCH better with the software and I'd be able to do things now that I didn't know how to do with it at the time.

Thank you for your comments and post!

Will Camaro buyers be attracted to a turbo four-banger?
If it has less horsepower than the V6 currently offered, and the price is equal or more than what's currently offered, then I don't think it would be successful. In order for something like that to work they'd have to get the base price for that model below $20k; especially if it has less horsepower than the V6. But at that point is it really still a muscle car or just an economy sedan with "sporty" performance? After seeing how difficult the Camaro crowd is to please, I don't see a turbo 4 going over very well unless the performance is at least the same as the current V6 but it's cheaper and gets better mileage. Even then....the Camaro crowd is a tough one to please....

So GM went from the 67 to 69 with the tail lights then decided to skip the 70's? That looks like an 82-90' to me...not bad but why do we have to go through the same Gen's all over again. I would prefer that it stays Gen I retro inspired. History is present so we don't make the same mistakes again..

I like the design...only thing that I could see a problem with (which is why engineers have a hell of a job) is your design looks like it would have an even smaller trunk opening than current gen to not take away from the design itself. Love our cars but for an advid golfer its annoying

As a purist I hate the idea of cutting through a feature, but for practical purposes I can see where that would be the way to go. The trunk opening could cut through the winglets near the outside so the trunk opening would be much wider. That would be a reasonable compromise for functionality.
