Yes, it does appear lower, leaner and quite a bit smaller in the rear end.

I'm not a convertible guy, so I don't have a dog in this one.

However, let's keep in mind that Camaro pricing is usually pretty close to Mustang pricing (and vice-versa, of course). Not sure...

Interesting catch. Thanks for posting it.

Hard to say, but the c-pillar shape doesn't scream Camaro to me.

Looks a bit like the Opel Calibra sketch that was floating around earlier in the year.

Whether it makes sense to buy a 6th gen Camaro depends upon the buyer's particular priorities and circumstances. Personally, if I had just bought a new (or 'new' used)...

You know, 9/10th scale would make a lot more sense. I like smaller cars but 7/8 would be tiny (i.e., the size of the Scion/Subaru twins).

With that said, if a Chinese-built knockoff 7/8 Camaro...

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? ...

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.
