Look... GM put out a press release a month or so ago saying that the 2015 is the final year for the 5th gen. What more do you want? Unless they're planning to skip a model year, the 6th gen...

Admittedly, I'm not an automotive engineer, but I suspect that the Camaro's body will be different enough from that of the ATS that crash testing will be something more than 'just a formality.' ...

GM said in a press release about a month ago that 2015 is the "final year in the fifth generation" (exact quote). There's probably a good 10-12 months of production left.

But, no, there's...

Interesting theory, and you might be right.

Do we know for certain, though, that the ATS couldn't handle a V8? When you come down to it, how much heavier is, say, an LS3 compared to the LFX V6? ...

I really like Geiszler's design, but it's much more 'revolutionary' than 'evolutionary.' So, unless GM has given everyone a massive head-fake, I don't think that the next Camaro is likely to look...

Seems that we're now up to 4 or 5 threads on the same speculative article containing ZERO plausible, confirmed details. :rolleyes:

Yikes, that sketch looks horrible. Sort of a cross between Bentley & Cadillac grills. Weird headlights. Dated rear spoiler.
Hate it. Sincerely hope that the real car looks nothing like this.

The new GM is in love with 4-bangers (turbo & NA), putting them in a lot of cars that never had them before, e.g., Impalas and CTSs.

I really wish that the moderators would close this thread.

There's ZERO possibility of the new Camaro looking like this Frankenstein version of the Code 130R. This is just a waste of time.

Well, I don't necessarily take this to mean Bay thinks Welburn is asking his advice on car design. 'What do you like?' could simply mean 'Which of these would you like to use in your movie?'
