They've been working on the design at least for a while now.

Nobody thinks this will be the 6th gen Camaro exactly as shown, if at all (doubtful).

So...."LOL" back at you.
Lmfao... Please child I actually hope the 6thgen does look like this. So everyone can buy it and trade in their 5thgen.

I could be wrong, but there is something about this batch that strikes me as different from all previous offerings. Especially the models. Up to now we have seen nothing but sketches, photoshopped pics, and computer generated renderings. Anybody could have produced those. But given the expense and difficulty of producing models like these, we can only speculate on what resources might be sponsoring them.
Let's face it, when it comes to stuff like this, there are no "accidents". The deadline for finalizing, and presenting a design for the 6th gen, is fast approaching. These renderings have the look and feel, that for the first time, we are getting a viable peek at where GM is heading. And why not? Who better to give a glimpse to, than us. We are after all, a captive focus group; whether we realize it or not. And make no mistake, they are listening.

So heed my advice: Pro or con; be constructive in your comments. Not everybody liked the 5th gen. Not everybody will like the 6th gen; no matter what the design. That's just the way it is when you're playing to an opinionated audience this big.
I desperately want Chevrolet to succeed. I'm rooting for them to get it right, like I feel they did with the 5th gen. I believe they will do it again.
I guess I'm optimistic that way.
So on the off chance that GM is here looking for input: As a fan of this car, give thoughtful advice; not mindless criticism.

After all, we're all going to have to live with the end result. Might as well do what we can to make it a good one!
Good comment!

Akerson isn't stepping down until mid January, so the new CEO can't really do much until then.

On the other hand, the 6th gen has been under way for a while now. I wouldn't be surprised if its 2/3 of the way through its development at this point. Doing any sort of fundamental change from wherever its heading now (or in the near future) would be throwing away an awful lot of time & money.

The designs are very interesting. I could see a very wicked looking Camaro coming out of these. Hope they don't forget how successful the current car is and make it too ricer looking.

My guess is that it going to look exactly close to the current model out but it will be smaller and lighter with the interior dashboard being made more modern.

I would like to see hidden side mirrors on the Camaro, maybe something motorized. A manual setup for the mirrors would be just as good, the ability to hid them in the body panels would be great. A locking mechanism inside the car can lock or unlock the mirrors for when the owner wishes to store or extract them. The hood seems to have three vents. I don't know if this middle is dedicated to ram air but from what I can see, it seems to be for down force. Looks like the air enters in from the middle and transfers the down force closer to the edge of the body, near the two front tires. Wonder if this could provide more stability during high speeds. An idea I was thinking about is the ability to have easily removable parts for the body of the car. Have a base for the wing but at the base create a connecting bracket something of course reinforced that allows drivers to switch from stock OEM wing to a racing wing in seconds. The Edge panel towards the front fascia could be removable to add a custom splitter in the front, on track days. Also some quick connecting side skirts would be outstanding. A rail system I would call it, giving the ability to unlock a part off the car and exchange it with another part, tool less design. 3rd party companies can still make diffusers and other parts for the car the only commonality they have to share is the ability to connect to the rail system of the car (connection mechanism). Race mode, show mode or even snow mode lol. I think Chevy has a solid foundation to work with based on the design of this concept.
I not even noticed there were no side mirrors,maybe G.M. is planning side object sensors and a camera for backing up that displays in the rad/nav.screen,?i know probably not the case here but would be a neat option,
