Arrow Spy Pics: Group of 2016 Camaro Prototypes Spotted Out Testing

New round of 2016 Camaro spy photos, this time we have close-up shots of a large test group rushing to get back to the safe confines of the General Motors Proving Grounds.

This particular test group--8 or 9 cars strong--consisted of solely high-performance variants. There didn't seem to be a six-cylinder in the bunch, and they made one serious roar as they tried to streak past the photographer's lens.

Hmm, overall seems to be same general shape as gen 5 if you discount the padding around the rear window area. Hope to see more uncovered soon! Not like any secrets are going to be stolen at this point.

Good to see more pictures. Now we know they have more than one on the road. Looks like numbers 3, 2, 7, and 1. Looking forward to seeing some of the covers removed.

Confirmation of a grafted-on '14 nose. Much of the rest enjoys wearing a "fat suit".

Very nice. THIS is why I check in at this site at least a couple of times per day.

Okay, guesstimators of the overall length and wheelbase, we now have some very horizontal shots... work your magic!

I will assume that the standard V-8 model will have wider rear tires then front and these all look as if the width is the same front and rear. So these are either I-4 turbo or V-6 engine models, looking at quad exhaust I want to say that these are V-6 engined cars. They look as though these cars sit lower then the current V-6 Camaro so maybe expect a better handling car even in base trim.

Someone needs to try to photoshop through the see through mesh on the front.

It's tough to tell at the moment, but I'm not digging the lower grill opening.

Yeah, the lower grill looks like the "catfish" 4th gen grill or the TF4 Camaro grill.

If you read the text, it says they made quiet a roar as they passed by. If these were I4s, or V6s, roar wouldn't be haven the word chosen. These are V8 models. Those are at least 275s on the rear I'm thinking

Pretty normal anymore. The new Mustang used them as well. But its pretty easy to tell they have a very 2010-ish looking 5 spoke wheel in there. I'm glad GM continues to offer 5 spoke wheels on their sports cars...its a good look. I read awhile back that its pretty much a standard for GM to use a 5 spoke rim, but not sure how true that is.

I'm with some of the others on this...and not really convinced its the real front fascia just yet, but who knows...it could be.

Under the camo, it looks very much like the 5th gen, but I'm sure theres much going on under there we can't imagine.

There are a couple shots from when the car is just passing by the camera (not directly in front) where you can kind of read the tire model. Can anyone enhance these a bit more and see the actual size? Looks like 20s, but if this is a smaller car, they could be 19s.

Once we figure that out, we can more accurately come to a conclusion on wheel base.


Overall, very cool stuff!
