Looks like it will share the Impala tail lights.

Interesting shape for the hood. I like that it suggests buldging fenders, as well as a sleeker front clip. I am really curious as to why the front is so rounded off, though.

If that rear end is the least attractive part of the car, I can live with it. Though I think it looks a little vanilla. If it is the not the least attractive part, I'm not real sure what I'll think.

Very interesting.

I see 3rd Gen Z/28 in the spoiler and 4th gen SS spoiler in the decklid. The rounded tail was a very popular design in the late 1980's early 90's in concept cars like the CERV.

Not that every new line needs to be compared to every old line, but automotive history has a way of repeating itself in popular design.

I don't know that I'm a fan of the new hood...looks almost backwards to me, but I'll need to see it on the car.

I get compliments on my Mustang every now and then, now there will be more confusion

Hopefully the tail lights are incredible enough to mask the similarity.

other than the downward slope, the shape is nothing like the lancer/evo. The part that wraps around the corner has a sharp point at the bottom of the evo. The Camaro has a dull point near the top. The edge closest to the middle of the trunk on the evo is way more slanted than the Camaro. The Camaro may even be vertical.



in other words, some of you need to get your eyes checked.

Aren't you the same guy that thinks Tom Brady isn't one of the greatest QB's of all time. LOL your opinions always gave me a good laugh. That's why I like you so much! (that's another topic though)

But it brings me to a point, again. That is your OPINION.

I don't need to get my eyes checked. That's my perspective, as soon as I saw that rear end, I thought of an ugly Mitsubishi Lancer. So do a lot of people.

The downward slope, the reverse light in the very center (skinny oval thing) in between the tail lights are the exact same. Obviously the shape isn't the same, but until they actually put the tail lights in the freakin' car. It looks just like a Mitsubishi Lancer in my opinion, and apparently several other people's opinions as well.

I pointed out FACTS when it comes to the differences in the two taillight shapes. There are more differences with the shape than there are similarities. I'm not sure what you are talking about with the reverse light. the evo reverse are not in the middle, they are toward the center of the taillight housing. i'm not sure where the reverse like is on the Camaro. i'd have to see another picture of it.

Also, it's hard to tell what the whole back end will look like without the bumper on there, or with camo all over it. Might as well say the imapala and 2016 Malibu looks like the evo rear end as well...
