I like it but needs to be more different. Well done, wish I had that software and ability!

Why does everyone think the Gen6 will be based off of the 1st gen? To my knowledge......no one at GM has even officially said there will BE a 6th gen yet...or that it will be based on the 1st gen again.

First generation: 1967–1969 (3 years)
Second generation: 1970–1981(12 years)
Third generation: 1982–1992(11 years)
Fourth generation: 1993–2002(10 years)
7 year gap
Fifth generation: 2010-2014(4 years so far)

With sequestration and still recovering from the recession and every car manufacturer limiting platforms and vehicle types to save $...... does everyone really think GM is going to have a completely new redesigned gen 6 Camaro ready in 16' based on the 1st gen?

Personally, I think its the safe bet for GM to do but there are many other options that would garner new fans and interest. I HATE the 2nd gen but I could easily see that happening as well..... I'd LOVE to see a modern 3rd gen as the 6th gen :P

GM has confirmed there's going to be a 6th gen by saying the next generation Camaro is being built in Lansing, MI, but it was left open ended as to when that would be. Fortunately for us fans, the Canadian Autoworkers then promptly proclaimed they would need something to fill the void in Oshawa by late 2015 - maybe it's not 2+2, but it seems a safe assumption that if Oshawa is going to need something to replace the Camaro line by late 2015, then that'd mean by late 2015 the Camaro is moved to Lansing, IE the next generation Camaro would be a 2016 model year.

Based on the 1st gen? Anybody's guess, my personal opinion - no.


That said -- while the MODEL YEARS for the 5th gen are only 2010-2014, you have to keep in mind that the DESIGN has been around since January 2006. It's an old design.

I personally hope it's revolutionary like the Corvette was. Recognizable as a Camaro with cues to the heritage, but unique and not a modern interpretation of any of the previous generations.

Great concept but I would like to see it with the front fenders widened to match the rear...besides that I would buy it!

The current Camaro was a great hit for GM, so I don't think we will see a totally radical new shape in gen 6. I think the greatest hint lies in the current design transition from Corvette gen 6 to gen 7. More edgy, sharp lines and aggressive shapes for exterior, with a well thought out (cup holder re-do?) and refined (boring dash/gauges) interior with better materials and a tight finish are what I thing for Camaro6.
I plan on looking for a Gen6 SS-1LE. I have been driving my car since 2009, I am ready for something newer.

Love it. I would trade my 5th gen in in a heartbeat for that. very nice lines and i love the fronts of both as well at the look of the windshield flowing up to the roof. both are very well executed in my opinion. love the doors and back side windows on the grey one better and the front end of the blue one.

What camera lens did you take the photo with? I've noticed a dramatic difference in the way dimensions look depending on if I use a 35mm, 55mm, or a 105mm lens in the software to take snapshot renders.

Based on that one angle view you've posted, assuming you have 20" rims it looks like the window height is maybe 12" at best. Do you have any other renders from different angles?

This would be the original image.
