I don't think it's an narrower, but the camo is making it hard for your eyes to determine sizing. If they improve the seating position, that will help correct some of visibility problems from the 5th gen.

So did some playing around. Here's some cut and paste of wheel to side window sizing. The top are from the spy photos showing a 20" wheel. The bigger photos are from a Z/28 which is a 19" wheel I believe. It's not exact by far but it definitely looks to be the same height in terms of window from the 5th gen.

From all these spy-shots and especially the most recent ones, I wonder about the "staggered" wheel set-up....It looks to me like these possible I-4 cars have the same size tire and wheel all around....At least a staggered set-up doesn't look discernable...dunno....

Just wondering if the SS will be staggered or square set-up...I can't tell from the renders or spy-shots one way or the other...If they do go 19", I hope it's a square set-up...If they stay with 20's maybe will still be staggered...??

I have to agree with the others....I think there may be someting...whether its just simply camo on the window...or some kind of structure added on to the top/bottom edges of the window and then camo'd over to make it look like its part of the body.

No point in arguing over it though. I'm certainly not. We'll know soon enough.

I still believe it's just Camo covering the black rubber window moldings like we have on the 5th gen.
But if they are hiding something it is definately at the bottom of the window and not the top.

Yeah I noticed them also. Maybe for smooth air flow.

Good detective work, thanks. It's the same size as the current model. P.S. I need to get a life...

Nothing about the 2.0T has been confirmed yet. Probably won't know until 5/16.

Exactly. We don't know if there even is a 4 cylinder model.

We don't need your kind on this forum. Just kidding, I looked at a few Ecoboost Mustangs with the Performance Pack, it is a pretty neat car. No official word on a T4 Camaro. I am kind of hoping they surprise us with a 3.0 TT V6.
