Yep I was going to say about the LED running laps (see below). but man they did a good job doing camo! I also suspect that GM does this on purpose running them side by side. Ironic that someone is just standing there ready to snap pictures as they were turning. But as stated. I'm getting pumped. one of the pictures the 6th looks lower than the 5th (unless deceeving). Another looks like a little girl in the pass seat. and trying to poke at the headlights, still look like we got the halo's, but the rest of the car... good luck figuring it out. The dual exhaust may indicate a 4cyl/6 cyl model. from the looks of how (not) as wide of a tire.

Good catch. Blind spot detection is definitely a worthy and welcome addition. Cross-path would be great to have, as well.

Yes, definitely a smaller person in the passenger seat of Car #1. 'Take your daughter to work' day at Milford? Or perhaps just a petite adult woman?

So guys...I have figured out what is under that camo. We wanted a smaller lighter Camaro right? Well feast your eyes on this beauty...

That looks like a Trans-Am to be honest. You can see the grill and lights clearly on some pictures. The back light covers looks like the Camaro to trans-am body kit that someone did.

I don't think it has a dual nostril thing going on as someone mentioned - the strip in the middle of the camo is just to cover the Chevy badge. The 5th Gen is close to being one of the (if not most) iconic Camaro, so I'll quite happily place a bet that the 6th gen will be a subtle evolution rather than a majority overhaul.

The DRLs interest me the most, however. From what I can tell they're optional equipment in the USA. In the EU and UK, they're mandatory by law on all new models from the 2011MY onwards.

I hope, with LED strips being integrated into the bumper, that they are now standard equipment. This would point towards GM gearing the 6th Gen for Jolly Ol' England - hopefully in right hand drive to compete with the Mustang.

Hell, the new Mustang sold out of its 500 pre-order units (2/3rds of which were for the UK alone) in 30 seconds, and had confirmed pre-orders of just over 9000 (again, with something like 2/3rds going to the UK) in under 90 minutes.

GM would be stupid not to bring out a true Euro-Spec model with a 4-banger and RHD. They wouldn't be able to screw them together fast enough.

When do you think these cars will be revealed? Paris Auto Show in September? Or is that being a bit too optimistic?

Why would Chevy debut the latest iteration of an iconic American musclecar in Paris? Not to mention that these don't look auto show ready by next week. I think the leading consensus right now is a January debut at NAIAS.

Probably not the only one that thinks it, but even just the front end looks very different from any current Camaro.

(Different hood, very different lights, different diffuser)

The pictures also show an obvious different in width and height... it just gets better.

You're not the only one but you can't even see the fascia. There is another layer of camo under the mesh. You can see it in a few pictures.

Plus, those don't even have to be the final headlights. The 5th fen prototypes had placeholder lights that upset a lot of people. There is even an smiley for them on this site.

Note the front end wheel gaps. One of those Camaros has a much lighter front end.

Actually I think he is accelerating, the rear is squatting as well. I am basing this on the comments from the photographer saying "they were getting on them" or what ever it was they said.

Take a look at the pictures of them at the intersection. Neither is moving when parked there, so it makes a nice comparison.

99.9% sure the quad headlight you are seeing are cutouts behind the Camo bra . just a shot in the dark but I think I see a more pronounced pointy front bumper?

On both points.

If it looked anything like a 2nd or 3rd gen, it would flop.

Nobody likes 2nd and 3rd gen Camaros, at least I don't. The best looking generations are the 1st and 5th, Chevrolet knows that, and I think they will hold true to making it evolutionary and moving away from this whole retro thing. It's going to look mostly like a 5th gen with some minor "evolutionary" changes, not revolutionary.

I also agree, that there certainly won't be quad head lights and you're only seeing cut outs in the camo.

Also, by the way, you can't tell "high performance" vs V6 just by looking at the exhaust anymore. The V6 is available with the NPP "quad" exhaust on the 2014 and 2015's.

Notice the red 5th gen is a V6 and has quad tips. I've seen one in the wild myself also, sounded pretty good.

Another positive note, looks like the rear diffuser does not take up half the bumper like 2014 refresh does.
