Parts of it line up pretty nicely (especially if we stick with the false 5th gen fascia and deck lid strapped on idea) while other parts of it are clearly off.

Still might be some styling hints in there...
I do believe that this is an early sketch of the C7 Corvette, based on design cues that it shares with the production Corvette and the mid year Corvette also in the shot.

What a major let down..Who was the guy at Gm that said the 16ym would look NOTHING like a 5th gen? I could have traded this year but nooooo I was hoping for something different.Like maybe a 2nd gen retro version. I feel like I've been lied to.
You can change the taillights and the front fascia but its still a 5th gen..come to think of it didn't they do that for the 2014 models?

Ummm, I don't know WHO you heard anything from, but the only thing that I'VE ever seen on these boards is that the G6 will be "Evolutionary, not revolutionary" and that it would be a variation of the G5 - it would be based on our current cars but not the SAME as our current cars

I also only remember hearing that it would be evolutionary though I don't doubt reports early on that the design would be a dramatic change. Early on in vehicle development they tend to look at a number of concepts and end up picking what is best (based on many factors and their criteria). I personally would love to see a more modern and dramatic design (I think going retro again would be a mistake). I am sure that people said look at the sales success of the current model, so lets not change too much....

What obviously is changing is a move to the alpha platform which hopefully yields a car that performs much better and gets better fuel economy. Also they still have a chance to show some design flare on the interior and greatly improve material quality as well.

Though from a design perspective I do kind of fill that just evolving the exterior is kind of what they did for 2014 model year so why just do that again.

You based your decision on rumors. GM isn't going to make any official statements until the reveal.

Nothing tells us headlamps or tail lamps. In fact if you look close we are likely seeing the JC Whitney lamps that got rpeveryone worked up on the Gen 5 car at exactly the time in its development.
The pass. side headlamp... yes... yes it is

If that was intentional, it's awesome!

Ya, I agree, probably a little toned down. They are close, but the roof line (A pilllars) are little off (slanted more) than the actually car under wraps.

Nice job smggugfaw

Yes, nice work with photos.

Allow me to respectfully dissent, though. I think that the shape of the car under wraps is far closer to the overall shape of the current Camaro than it is to that concept sketch.

We are in similar agreement.

We are saying the car under wraps is not as extreme at the sketches/renders.

Although, there is so much padding on the front windshield and rear window, it is tough to say what it will look like.

Can't wait to see the actual model, that said so far I am not a fan of being able to see that LARGE trash can in the back. I liked the rear end's before the 2014s, before they went all exposed on me. Just my $37 and change.

Except for the Ferarri vents, I REALLY like that! But that's more revolutionary than evolutionary, I think
