I wouldn't doubt it, but I wouldn't stake my LIFE on it since we saw two on the truck!!

I can't wait for this. and for the people that don't like the placement of the onstar/xm antenna would you rather it be off center and to me make the car look lopsided? let the pics start rolling in.

Yeah, I could tell SOMETHING was a little different, but wasn't positive what. Until the comparison image was posted.

I have to say, I actually think I like the Prototype's bumper better than the Concept's.

A few thoughts:

A sunroof!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Scott, I'm sending you yet another virgin for that one.

Gas cap - I don't see a side door or the fender-top mounted one like on the concept, so I don't think we can speculate either way for now. I'll be royally pissed if they idiots who don't know how to pump gas right ruin one of the best design features on the car

Antenna - I hope it isn't going to look like that too, but I think it will since that is a standard GM piece. However, I think it would be really easy to craft a BMW-style fin to place over it. Hmm, you could launch a decent aftermarket company that way...

Exhaust - yes they do look smaller and less fancy, little more generic. Kinda sad, but not a big deal. It looks like the whole area down there near the bottom is just less impressive than the concept, but still not bad.

B-pillar - Well done, as we expected. No surprises there.

Mirrors - Yup, the body color does make them look smaller. Good good.

Color - Yes, I do take back every bad thing I ever said about white. The best comment I've seen on it is that this picture makes it look like a Star Wars Stormtrooper's car.

In conclusion - this thing is drop dead sexy. I am even more excited to get one now. Thanks for the New Years gift, everyone at GM. I'm soooo happy!

I just want to comment briefly on this, and it's nothing on you, stovt001. Very nicely put.....I want to say something only because I've read too many posts very similar in fashion, only much, much more rude across other boards in regards to the exaust tips...

It is a prototype: Meant for niether show, nor showroom...testing only. And although it's probably a 50/50 chance whether they stay toned down like that or not - don't look into them too much.

I'm thinkin' we're looking at one of the V6 cars here. There is no spoiler and in one of the earlier shots taken of a couple of parked cars under their car covers (next to 2 Mustangs), it was easily discernible that one car had a spoiler while the other did not.
This could also account for there not being any noticeable vents in front of the rear wheels. I have no doubt there will be a number of obvious visual cues differentiating the V6 and the V8 cars.
At this point, I'm thinking that huge congratulations are in order to the entire Camaro team for getting this car to where it is today and for keeping it so true to the Concept! Way t'go guys (and gals)! We're almost there! Keep letting stuff like this trickle out and there will be no problem maintaining interest in this car from here on in until the official unveiling and release to the public!

Best regardSS,

Elie

Yup I realize that, but I was actually saying that even if they stay like that, I won't be disappointed. Lets face it; the concept was hand-built and cost millions to make. Some things aren't going to be as nice, and if this isn't even the best we'll see, well shoot, then I'm ready to sell blood and organs to get me one of those.

It's only looking better and better! What do you know!?!?!? A sunroof!!! Most definitely pleased to see that; Another element to cement the fact that this is indeed, my next car. Oooooooooo yehhhhh.

Yup, sunroof just about sealed the deal for me. I'm now 90% sure this is my next car, and I just might have to stretch and get it earlier than I had planned. Oooh boy.

I'm loving this. Didn't the last prototype pictures not have that angle in the side? Either way, it looks gorgeous. I'm loving the sunroof option. I even like the more subtle exhaust tips and lack of spoiler. It looks good with color-matched or black mirrors, so that doesn't phase me. All in all, I can't wait to see more official pictures. GM has been doing a great job!

You'll learn to not leave your computer. Calling your mom for a bedpan among other things if you want to keep up with the latest news. (see World of Warcraft episode of Southpark).

It seems that the pictures and information being given to the public about this car is starting to snowball. I'm in absolute awe with what we've gotten in the past 45 days. It's a great feeling to go from not knowing anything except there are mules, to seeing pics with camo, to no camo two weeks later ALONG WITH interior pics. It's good that it's progressing. Body would go into shock if all these were released at the same time.

I don't expect to see too many minor visual details in a prototype. I'm pretty sure we will see the vents in a production Camaro (but maybe not all of them) and a spoiler.

This has been a truly great day. Got half my debt for school eliminated (thank you mom and dad!), got my marks in for my courses (passed everything!) and got pictures of the Prototype Camaro's interior and exterior

Since there's no spoiler on this car it makes me believe that this is probably the base model (v6). I'm guessing the z28 will come with a spoiler and different wheels, maybe even a different hood.

EDIT: just read garfin's post and noticed he said the same thing lol

The rim and wheel size is just too big for it to be a V6 model, IMO. Looks like the same 20 inch rims that are on the black camo car on the bottom of the transporter truck with the wheel close up photo, which is a V8. The current Mustang GT can be had without a spoiler. They could be testing the V8 without one.

I would imagine a spoiler could very well be optional on both models.

very happy they kept the side indent. I was afraid it would go from a crease to a line. the color and size of the pic makes it hard to tell but it looks nice! I know todays pics of the exterior and interior are small and still unfinished. It just reminds me of what is really going to make me buy one.

when I sit in that seat in a 3rd or 4th gen to this day I always feel like I have come home after a long vacation. I really hope I feel this way when I sit in the 5th gen for the first time

Looks damn good in white.

Looks funky w/out that rear spoiler....hmmm

Tire size looks good. No probs there. But, those surely won't be the rims they plan on using. I'm sure they'll have something we've never seen before for that.'

Sunroof??? I can't believe they did it...if they did. It's still kinda hard to tell. Just worried about that roof and those lines. That's gotta look kinda strange. Hope it flows well...sure it will. They wouldn't just let that go.

Color matched mirrors sure do make it blend and fit well w/ the car. They now look like they belong!

Where's the d@mn gas cap?!?! It better not be on the passenger side! I'm so sick of that. What the heck is the point in a passenger side gas cap?! We have that on our Kia and I HATE it. I can't see it up top or on the side...which worries me about it being on teh passenger side. I sure hope it stays put up top on the drivers side. It gives it that race inspired look.

Again, lookin' pretty d@mn good there, GM. Excellent job!!! And thanks for letting that picture go out there for all of us to see!!!

Now...get us some better pix of that interior! PUH=LEEZ!!!

Why is having the gas cap on the passenger side such a problem? It works fine on my Cobalt. Just wondering...

I'm very happy it's that close to the concept (considering the small picture size, the colour, angle etc) - can't wait to see more!

Because.

I'm sure it does.

Ok.


Yeah...I hate passenger side gas caps. It's just plain inconvenient. Sure, the passenger side gas cap works. But, if you could open your car door, exit, swipe your card right in front of you, turn left and open you gas cap, turn around grabbing the pump and turning back to put it in...then, you can take a step and sit in your car while it fills up if you wish. You know...sometimes it rains, it cold as heck, you don't feel like standing, etc. and you want to get back in your car...you can just sit down. Having to walk around does take a little more time. And, if you can't get back to the pump in time when the safety thing swithces (but you can still pump two more gallons) you don't get to completely fill your tank. If you are sitting on the side of the pump, you simply open the door, exit and you are standing at the pump. It is a convenience thing here...and I'm sure there are plenty who will agree to that. I'm sure that when you bring something home that has to go in the back seat, you aren't going to walk around to the back passenger side to put it in that seat when you could very easily just put it in the seat right behing you to get out after you get out. There's no point in walking all the way around to get your stuff. It just doesn't make sense....kinda like a passenger side gas cap.

Another reason, I see it as a safety factor. All the doors surrounding the vehicle are locked and the only door unlocked is the one right in front of you while you are pumping. If it's opposite, the only door I have to get into my vehicle is on the other corner of my car. Takes longer for me to get there and is easier for someone to get into if they wished. I could get more into this, but you probably get the point.
