Thumbs up New 6th gen Camaro renderings!

I saw these this morning on GMI. If this is a repost, I apologize.

Clearly, a styling exercise more than anything. I think some pictures give a definite Camaro vibe though.

Pretty cool, but too over the top. Definitely a styling exercise.

That was a student intern design study done in 2012. It is a 1/3 scale clay model. There are some interesting cues in it.

Yeah, the top right pic of the actual model just screams Camaro.

Comic book toy cars with ridiculously over-size wheels and under-size cabin. I don't know why people think this kind of look is "futuristic" as it's so impractical in any real sense. I would rather see realistic possibilities instead of over-the-top dramatic stuff.

It's a design study done by an intern last year. Nothing official.

I know i'm in the minority but I don't think they should change the current style all that much, but I was a huge fan of the late 60s design and like the update here in the current model.

And doing a pretty damn good job, as long as they make sure the whole front isn't blacked out - that looks really good wow

It's an interesting design but can you imagine the road rash on those side ducts? Probably some influences there though.

Plus the fact that GM wouldn't show the 6th gen this early.

It think as a whole, it is too over the top (but I guess that's what these studies are for) but there are parts I like about it.

A little over the top for my taste. Things I like and things I don't like. I can see a 6th gen taking styling cues from this, not as extreme as this though

I think they are cool renderings. I like them...the 1st photo top right angle looks sweet and the side view from the 2nd rendering looks awesome. But I'm not sure they have enough "Camaro" heritage in the design for my liking, but then again some people would rather run away from that altogether and go with something completely revolutionary. I will say I can see the "hips" there and some other throw backs which is nice so I guess I can't say I don't see any Camaro heritage in that...there is some.

I definitely would hope for a very modern if not forward looking looking car, but with the heritage cues thrown in. I guess thats why I love the 5th gen so much. When it was released it has those modern sharp lines, and it was bold like nothing else, but also had the Camaro DNA in it. Chevy brought us the concept as closely as they could, and that is the way to do it right!

I think your experience with creating your own design gives you a different perspective than others. You look at this and see the inpracticalities and what couldn't possibly make production. Thats fine, but thats not really very fun either. The whole point is to take something that looks wild and over the top, and then see what can be done with it. I'd rather start with something over the top, rather than boring and try to make it look more exciting.

How did the 2006 concept Camaro make you feel? I'm sure you've seen the first sketches for it right? (wild and over the top with the huge wheels) and then they brought it to clay form, and eventually to a rolling model on a GTO chassis. How did you feel about it then? This is the process I'm talking about.

As for the shot below...with some tweaking to the roofline, and some other small changes like wheel gap and what not, I could 100% see this coming out in concept form. From there, if the public LOVES it, GM could make something really road worthy. I'm not saying I really want that to happen with this particular rendering. Just making a point.

I understand this is way over the top for something as the 6th gen and nothing to practical about it. And it is too soon for Gm to even give a hint on what the 6th gen might look like, But im sure they did it to kinda keep the Mustang talk at a minimum and keep a lil more light on the Camaro.

I'm reasonably sure cars on the road now were 'sketched' years ago but you have to introduce changes over time or else you get too many, "over the top" perspectives.

The first one I could live with now!

The styling is too busy IMO. The '10-'13 styling still captures the modern and retro look the best.
