I know that a lot of people will say they like this, but the belt line is still too high and the greenhouse too short.

And its got the corporate chevy face, large bottom grill, and very tiny upper grille. I do like some of the lines on that rendering tho.

Nope. Too stylized. Take the vette out and put the Camaro back in.

These exercises make you realize that if you like the current car, better get one soon. Also wondering if build quality will suffer 'Made in America'.

I'm a fan....as far as a design exercise goes I'm happy with this. This would turn heads. Looks modern and muscular, has the GM corporate face (which I'm not really a fan of using the corporate face on the Camaro, but if done right I could live with it), is a nice evolution of the current car, and easily looks better than the new Mustang. The Mustang does not stir up excitement for me, but this does.

True, but I'm thinking those heights could be raised/lowered a bit on this design and still not lose the good looks.

It will be made in the same house as the Cadillac ATS....the quality had damn well better be good. I'm not worried about it.

There is too much Corvette in that for me. Plus, the high belt line and low roof line will make it even harder to see out of. The 6th gen doesn't have the burden of restarting the Camaro so they need to focus more on performance than a flashy design.

Isn't that a fancy way of saying that the visibility is poor? I wonder if any other cars have that problem.

Nice design but I do not like the rear quarter for a Camaro. GM please do not black out the A-pillar like the Vette.

Its not a horrible rendring, but I agree, belt line is WAYYY too high. And the body lines from the front fender and rear quarter panel toward the door dont match. HUGE no no. The front bottom grill. I question why even make it that large if youre not going to just join the top and bottom making it as one? If youre going to split it? IMO make the split on the facia about 1-1.5" in width tops. You can install the bowtie there. No need to install it in the grill sense it would be about center.

The front end is workable. I kinda like it. The rear end? Ummm... no. I think it looks absolutely horrible because the rear wheel is just about the only thing you see from this angle. Blech...
I don't like the greenhouse either. It's too bubbly at the same time as being too short. That's a hard screw-up to pull off IMO.

Props for rendering it and putting it out there, though.

Nice rendering and nice looking, but not as emotional as the 2010. I just am not a fan of the new corporate face. I don't like this squashed look. It is too mass market and indistinct. I don't like it on the Traverse either. GM needs to focus on the emblem, like BMW and Mercedes, not the grill, for brand identity.

I totally agree however BMW is probably more famous for their grill design than any other car on the market. You know it's a BMW from the grill long before you see the badge.

Unfortunately that's the way the mustang went. Let's home GM doesn't follow.

I see Impala influence. It looks better than a lot of other renderings but I wouldn't buy it. Definitely doesn't look better than what I have.

Agree! This isn't saying camaro anywhere! This reminds me of the new Mazda! Yikes! Not impress or warranted the camaro nameplate! But hey, how can you beat the looks of a 5th Gen. Even though, I like the 3rd Gen look a like! But the 5th Gen is our last authentic looking muscle car , that is the vibe that I am getting !

I like it. An evolution of the current design which is what I've been hoping for, and rumoured to be the direction they're headed. I'm all for form over function and don't mind the high belt line, chopped look. How is visibility in a C7? I don't hear many complaints.
And I don't get comments regarding quality with the Gen 6 going back to the U.S. I'm Canadian and while I appreciated my car being built here I have no reservations about the 6th gen being built in Michigan. I feel better buying products that are Made in Canada/ Made in the U.S than made in Mexico (and yes I know some components come from Mexico)
