Hoping that you're right. A more vertical back window would likely improve rear visibility.

I would be really happy with a well executed 3rd gen styled 6th gen.
If it looked anything like this, I'd say it would be for from a flop.

Right now the plan is to buy a used 2013 ZL1 in feb of 2015

If it looks anything like a 3rd gen the plan will change & there are about 6million members on a thirdgen forum that will have a hard time resisting one as well.....

As for the spyshot photos, I think GM is jacking with us.... ton of padding ^ a different nose everytime they bring em out....lol

Just an observation.

Really can't wait to see if I'm close.
I agree. It definitely has the 3rd gen front end mixed with 5 gen going on. I think the front will be very flat and unatractive. Only time will tell...

body style appears shorter & more narrow. Me thinks it will look more like a 4th gen

it's lower and seems a little smaller now. One pic #5 you can compare the height of gen5 vs gen6 and gen6 is not as tall and seems a bit smaller with very evolutionary lines regardless of the different platform now.

A good place to look I think is to compare the dimensions of the ATS coupe (its longer and wider but lower then the ATS sedan) to the Camaro. I wonder if it is going to be slightly longer then the ATS coupe but similar width and height, though I think some would suggest that the 6th Generation Camaro will be a 5th generation Camaro grafted onto an ATS coupe.

ATS coupe is

Length: 183.6 inches
Width: 72.5 inches
Height: 54.8 inches
wheelbase: 109.3 inches
weight: 3,418 pounds (2.0T no options)

2LS 2014 Camaro (no options lightest spec)

Length: 190.6 inches
Width: 75.5 inches
Height: 54.2 inches
wheelbase: 112.3 inches
weight: 3,702 pounds

My predictions 2.0T manual no options

Length: 185 inches
Width: 74 inches
Height: 53.5 inches
wheelbase: 110 inches
weight: 3,550 pounds

Actually I think it would make for an interesting design if they went with the Cadillac CTS 114 inch range wheelbase for the 6th generation Camaro and an overall shorter length (185 inches). this will give the car shorter over hangs front and rear. That would be essentially taking the current car and moving the wheels out a combined 7 inches. I think if they did something that extreme they could in concept place the engines completely behind the front axle (depends on if 2 extra inches would be enough to pull it off). Then they can low the engine in the engine bay further dropping the center of gravity and moving weight further back. This would give it geometry closer to a sports car.

I like the way you think, but the engine placement is controlled more by the firewall placement, and the A-pillar is historically aft of there, so moving the engine back 2" makes an already long front end even longer.

Moving the front axle forward two inches
Would make more sense then moving the engine back two inches. Actually we dont even know if two inches will be enough. The point would be to lower the engine in the engine bay.

Yeah, there's normally a X-member that connects the suspension. It would take probably 6" to be able to drop the engine, but then you'd have oil pan issues, on a lowered car, the first good speed bump you hit would crush the pan..... lowering would also lower the trans, so a manual would need a serious linkage re-work. It's always something.....

If they did that, they would end up with something like the 4 the gens where half the engine was under the dash.

of course they are. remember they tried to trick us into believing the c7 corvette would still have the traditional round tail lights

also I've never seen that grill on the current models in those spy shots

There are probably a number of ways to do it but they probably couldn't practically do it on the alpha platform. If gm didn't produce the corvette though them i would say that they couldn't do it. I just think switching to a front mid shop layout would elevate the level of performance for the camaro.

The biggest issue is that the camaro has more then two seats
