Those are decoy bodies. Unless GM has changed what they do with their test mules, what you see is potentially not what you'll get in the showroom. It's a purposeful move to always keep you guessing. Like the front end cover might be covering up something they looked at years ago and have no plans of releasing, but covering it up gets people talking. It's even possible they're testing a completely different engine that isn't even designated for the Camaro. Once car could be testing suspensions and the other is testing transmissions or towing capacities...who knows for sure except GM?

It's good they're testing SOMETHING. And it keeps us occupied until the real deal shows up.

Probably just took the camo from a CTS-V and slapped it on a regular Camaro to get everyone freaking out

Man - if I came across these cars, I'd be compelled to stop what I was doing and follow them until they either stopped, or until I ran out of gas to get as many pics' as I could.

I can't wait until we get some more pics'. I'm still very grateful for our Members generosity though and sharing these shots

Comparing Photos, what do you think?

This is a photo that I took at the C5 Fest. It has the T2 front fascia and T2 hood. The lower front vents are definitely larger than those on the the Jay Leno car and the size and shape seem to be pretty close to the pictures from Michigan and San Diego. The hood is strictly a guess on my part. It is hard to tell with the cover on the hood what the size and shape of the hood scoop under it. So this is my best guess. What do you think?

Who had this at C5, GM or just some guy who built one?

The lines look identical to the spy shots under the covers. Could this really be the first uncovered factory Z28 body we are looking at?

I hope it's the lighting, but the hood looks a more orange-y yellow than the rest of the body, maybe it's my eyes?

I think it was ASC or ACS that was selling the hoods and fascia.
