Looks good!! Now for the rear brake duct to be functional, would the rear caliper not have to be on the front side of the disc instead of the rear? Or does it really matter?

You should design cars for video games. Those designs would be awesome for that.

...mine even has mirrors, headlights and a spoiler! What was I thinking?!!!

You know, some of you really need to stop and think before you post. Do you honestly think there's going to be styles and designs like nothing ever seen before by anyone anywhere? That somehow even though it has 4 wheels, seats, mirrors, windows, headlights, tail lights, engine up front and has to be a "muscle" car, a NEW shape is going to be possible that doesn't even remotely look like anything done before?? Grow up!!! These ridiculous "it looks like (image of car from the past)" posts are absolutely worthless. If you can't be positive and constructive like some of the others in this thread who are doing a great job of getting into the spirit of this effort, then don't even bother posting.

Since we know GM people look at these threads, wouldn't it be great if we could give them the impression we care about design and want to contribute something other than the glaring evidence of what a bunch of immature divas some of the customer base can be? This is a CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT thread with the key word being DEVELOPMENT. I'm taking constructive feedback, ideas and suggestions and putting them into 3 dimensional images. Are any of you negative critics who say this looks like some other car from the past offering anything useful? If you think you "know better" then by all means show us what you've got. CONTRIBUTE like some of the others are or just don't post. If any more of these kinds of useless posts keep showing up which do nothing but waste space and clutter up the thread, I'm going to start asking mods to delete them.

Nobody is making anyone come in here; if you don't like what you see, that's okay...just be specific about what you don't like and why, and offer some suggestions as to what changes you would like to see. Think positive and creative. If you're just going to be condescending, mocking, negative and complain then stay out cause I don't need you in here.

I think you latest version looks a lot better. Wheel wells correct lower shape. The new roofline looks much better to me, while at the same time still gives an increased viewing area over 5th gens. I,d say you nailed it as far as what I was thinking.

I think what a lot of people don't realize about gm & others design is how much all overall platforms WILL change shape in the future. All the first cars looked like horseless carriages, next was very boxy, next smoother , but still boxy, on to the fin look years, to longer& smoother, 2 lights to 4 lights to 2 lights, big boats to smaller boxes, to more streamlined, to retro looks , etc, etc. Point is many cars all from same years take on similar looks, partly to chassis designs, manufacturing, & other requirements.
We should be glad the 5th gen Camaros look more like what most consider a Camaro rather than some of the gm concepts no one really wants to remember.
Doc, I have a few other suggestions which I'll just share in a pm, along with a few laughs for you from my insult collections I receive for my stuff.

Design is usually evolutionary and rarely revolutionary. Hell, just changing tail lights sets some people off...

It looks too much like a Corvette, its too small to be a Camaro, and the body lines and design make it look like something from the 80's, too old. Its a complete step back from the current Camaro's jump. What made this generation (5th) so successful is it looks futuristic.
The Camaro is just a Corvette that is much more liveable on a daily basis. Its got 4 seats, rides more comfortably, and is safer. Its always been higher off the ground so it can clear pretty much any road situation with ease. Look at the main complaints about the 5th gen. Its always been the visibility and the trunk space, both aspects that reduce its ease as a daily driver.
Car design is moving more towards this:

Not this:


If you handed your render to someone and told them to place it with one of the two images I posted there based off which it looks closer to in design they'll put it on the Fiero.

We all know GM has influence on this site, look at the concept that got front paged recently:


It wasn't a coincidence they front paged that, they are performing market research for free lol. Look at the new Transformers 4 Camaro too. Although its obviously a modified Gen 5 they are giving us a rough sketch of the 6th Gen. It will look similar to that front paged concept and the T4 car. Just basically take the T4 car and shrink it down. I feel like this is all in plain site or am I going crazy?

I don't think you should give up though. A "mini" Corvette/Camaro definitely would have a market based off sales of that BRZ thing Subaru made.

http://www.autoblog.com/2012/06/20/s...-selling-cars/

Take your design and "futurise" it. The tail lights and head lights need a serious revamp, I'd start there. Take cues from all new major brands. Nowadays you need some kind of halo/led strip, something. You also need some kind of led runner on the bottom of the bumper and probably an exaggerated and aggressive grille. Cars nowadays are all moving towards more tough looking urban street fighter cars. Then take the roof line down as it would be a 2 seater.

It sucks when people don't like something you took a lot of time to make but you have to be ready for that possibility. As long as you like it you should be happy. If other people get you upset then you weren't really making it for you. I spent months building a custom bumper for my car and there were/are a LOT of people who hated it but at the end of the day I love it and that is what matters.
