Why not this?

Found this while doing some research about the 6th gen. Evolutionary style while keeping big headlights and aggressive look.

I think a camaro should not have that curvy lines. it looks more like a sportscoupé than a muscle car

But i think the new camaro should get something like the Marix LED Headlights from Audi.

Pretty sure those are banned in the US.

I like that a lot. That is the type of path that I hope GM follows with this car.

Noooo! Looks like it was designed by Bangle. I do not like his styling. Also where is the trunk? I want a proper coupe not a Z4.

It has potential, at least it looks like a possible new design.

The concepts always look curvy like that - then the actual car comes out and it looks much more "normal". I'll wait to see some spy photos before getting too excited.

Well, since you asked why not ... here are a few reasons:
  • roof is too low;
  • 'stuck in a bunker' feel of the 5th Gen would get even worse
  • doors may not be able to open
  • absolutely no suspension travel without having the fenders cut into the tires
  • front tires may not be able to turn for the same reason
  • mirrors are too small
  • trunk and/or 2nd row of seating appears to be non-existent
  • tires are far too thin, wheels will be easily damaged by bumps in the road (made even worse with 0 possible suspension travel)
  • does not look like there is any curb protection offered by tire sidewall
  • with the rear wheels so far back (coupled with a fairly long nose), it will be difficult to get decent weight distribution
  • extremely radical departure from other alpha-based cars, would likely requiring substantial re-engineering of the chassis to accommodate


That reminds me, don't ask rhetorical questions on an internet forum ... you never know when someone will answer it honestly.

I am sorry but this is a schematic concept not a production concept so I feel your comments are misplaced. Almost all schematic concepts start at this point with exaggerated features and then the designers begin to refine the design to something functional. If we were to search back we could probably find those same comments for the 2006 Camaro concept which actually was a production concept.

Misplaced....really? I thought the comment of the "re-engineering of the chassis" is a pretty significant reason for this design not to work.

That design would work for a two-seater but it's not really proportioned right to have a back seat. Not bad looking, however.

To be honest, it looks like a gen 5 Camaro that melted a little and lost its form. And I don't think the Camaro will ever be so curvy like that picture. That said, I think it looks okay.
