I'm wondering if that's a giant single muffler under the tail. I can't really tell where the outlets are coming from in these pics. If it is that might mean no more true duals.

Do you know if the styling is typically locked at this point in the development? All validation now and moving vendors and tooling toward production?

This is getting more and more excited for 2016 to be released but I don't know if I should wait or just get a 2014-2015 for a good rate. Decisions decisions!

Is it me or is that just one huge muffler straight across the back?

That is why it is covered so well. Once in this phase of building prototypes normal product development on any product requires you to be making commitments for production. Changing styling now with any significance could drive a delay.

I posted earlier that it looks to be a one piece muffler like the one on the ATS but it could be just a decoy. You can see dual pipes coming to the rear axle on either side of the drive shaft but not where they exit the muffler at the rear.

I'm sure there will be lots of 14 and 15s left still even when the 16s come out.

I think the tires have less width to them, like what you would find on an LS. It seems like there is more ground clearance, too.

It's definitely either a 4 cyl mule, or a 6'er... Not a v8 from the looks of how wide the tires are.

Looks like lower profile tires. Single resonator. Shorter rear overhang. Looks to me like it is using front wheels off of a C5 all the way around. There is a small naked piece on the rear bumper and you can kind of make out some detail on the rear valence under the camo. The roof, side windows and rear view mirrors look close to the current C5. Overall looks smaller but hard to tell by how much.

I am worried that the camaro will stay ahead in styling and fall behind in weight/performance. I know its a big car but it can't compete with Mustang unless they drop weight. Just think how much lighter the stang would be if it had a SBC like the LS3. I can't remember exactly how much less the motors weight but an LS3 is way lighter. at least 30-50 lbs and its 6.2L vs 5.0. Just saying. We need weight loss. Lots of aluminum parts would help.

what I see here is a c7 style hood and rear window. gen 3-4 squarish headlights (yes I can pick them out although like everyone says its probly not the real bumper/fascia and they may have the headlights covered with square holes) and the one car has a big dovetail ala gen 1-2.

if they drop 3-400 lbs the Camaro will be on par if not faster than the 5.0 on the line. its already a drivers race most times now anyway

Is that the gas tank showing or a big muffler?

Coyote weighs less than the LT1.. LT1 does pack more technology. I'd go with SBC all day long.

It's really hard to see anything significant. The rocker panels, side windows, and a-pillars look very similar to the 5th gen. The car seems to have a high belt line again too.
The hump around the rear window is not the real body line of the car. It is used to hide the exact profile of the car.

Its trunk space for the T-tops #3 has a Mohawk and the others have reverse mohawks. #3 also appears to have wider tires.
