Lightbulb Early Speculative 2016 Camaro Size / Length Measurements

Based off first prototype spy photos.

Well I had a little free time last night.. This was very crude until I actually have some time. But I was using Car & Drivers "estimated" wheel base length that they calculated based off of the Impala that was next to it.

Wheelbase: 109.32" vs 112.3" of the 5th gen.
Overall length: 186.88" vs 190.4" of the 5th gen.
Length of door: 54.97" vs 56.5" of the 5th gen.

When I have a little more time I'll redo the measurements using the wheels as a scale. Assuming they are 20's.

Nice. So it lost 3+ inches. Still can't pass a bucket of chicken through that side window, but that's okay.

Here's your 2010.

The 2014 Mustang is around 188.5" long, so this would put it slightly shorter.

Also that sketch shows the wheelbase as 119" when it's actually 112.3" or maybe I'm reading it wrong..

119 does seem way off. Hmmm.

Somebody doctored the numbers. 119 is wrong. The 112 number is right. Mustang is 107.1 if I remember correctly. ATS Coupe is 109. I am thinking the new 2016 is about 109.

186" Overall length is the same as a 1969 Camaro.

Except even your base measurements are off of a fake front end and a decklid that is overhanging the rear bumper fascia by at least 4 inches if not more.

Nice try, but this is a much smaller car than what you are showing. Now the dimension may be close, but your tip to tail is off of parts that won't be going to production.

Even the most aggressive vehicles have some type of bumper on the back. The decklid is simply overhanging that bumper, even in this photo it's pretty clear.

2015 ATS Coupe Specs:

O.L. = 183.6" (+.8" over sedan)

Base Curb Weight = 3411 lb (2.0-T with 6-speed Automatic)

Weight Distribution (above driveline) = 51/49%

IF the Camaro comes in close to these dimensions (personally, I'll bet on an inch or 2 longer nose than ATS Coupe, or 185" or so), with a tad fewer Standard Features than the Cad, we should see a 4-T Camaro @ or under the same-engine 4-T Mustang in weight. With better W.D. than Mustang's 53/47% (iirc).

I am wondering if this Camaro isn't as long as it looks, maybe they added extra padding in the back to hide rear detail and it makes it look longer then it really is....

I actually think that the ATS coupe might be a great platform to work off of in building the 6th generation Camaro. Maybe add an extra inch to its length (and 2 to the wheel base).

There is a big chunk of padded camo on the back of that car so we can't tell for sure how long it really it. It's smaller than the pictures show.

I think taking stabs at the 6th gen's length is fun, but really there is no way to make an accurate guess at the overall length based off of the above shot.

I'd say those rims are either 19" or 20", so based on that you could try and get some sort of guess at wheelbase, but not much more.
