So reading that, and some of the comments, I find it really funny - though not a bad thing, that more than a few folks actually like the 'horrible' headlights!
It's all very well that we, on this site, are "in the know", and have some indside information, but these official pictures are cropping up on lots of other websites where the users don't have the same information we do. Therefore, they'll take the pictures at face value.

I can only hope the reason the headlights still aren't ready, is that they are going with the concept's LEDs and Halos.

I'm looking at the picture and I'm not seeing what he's talking about... You'd think he saw satan in the driver's seat or something.

Honestly, I couldn't ell why I hate it so much ...


Just a general feeling, I really lost that raw and powerful feeling ... looking at the concept, I was thinking "WOW" and couldn't really tell why in details ... now i feel a "YUK" and couldn't tell more ...

General feeling, headlights, the tail looks so much like some kind of an impala of something, tooooo narrow, ridiculously little wheels ...

no, I hate it.

But you guys have the right to like!!

shit happens!





ps: maybe I still have some hope ... somewhere ... that changes happen and that the SS version will be a real car

Well ... i have taken another look coz' I felt strange when reading your post ... the worst to me is the face: maybe it's the angla, but it looks more flat, shorter as the tail looks longer.

anyway, likes or dislikes ... my neighbor thinks the El Camino is the hottest car ever so ...


good night yankees

Punk Rider: I'll bet it's just the color. Give it another shot when they release pictures with another color. Also, you have to remember that this is NOT final.

I think she's gorgeous and can't wait until I have one in my garage.
Congratulations to everyone on the design team at GM!

Yeah, never give up hope until you've had a chance to see one in person and take it for a test drive.

Holy shi- that's beautiful! Very nice! Like the new grill, staying pretty close to the concept, and the side mirrors are great! Now just slap on the gorgeous bowtie and we're in business!

Thumbs down

Yuck?

Maybe those are the headlights for the new Firebird. That would be ok... Whats with the fake hood scoop? What is wrong with that bumper and those foglamps? Are they from a Tahoe? What is that rear-bumper? Is is from Pee-Wee's Playhouse? Chairy, anyone?

Well, I just bought a 2007 Mustang GT. The first Ford in my life, because this Camaro, as I knew it would, bores me to tears after the final version appears. Of course, it could look tons better in person, as many GM cars do. In fact, I find that many cars I hate in pictures, by GM, I turn out loving in person... I still hold hope.

For now, this is my gut-feeling.

I'm glad you people enjoy it, I just think its more bland garbage that was watered down with a big motor from GM, came too late to the game, and is going to get crushed by the new 'Stang and upcoming Charger...

GM has only one car that I drool over. The Cadillac CTS. I m 32 y/o and That car is far more sexy and hot rod like than this entry-level amatuer-mobile. Now I lust over my hot-rod Caddy! Zig!!!

Three things for those who hate this picture (and the one of the rear) to keep in mind

1) Its still only a preproduction and so certain things like cutting out the vents may not have been bothered with
2) Those are not the actual headlights, they were grabed from a parts bin and shoved into place
3) Most cars look boring in white, for the same reason that most cars look intimidating in black. Wait for photoshops to get a better idea of what it will look like.

There is a lot that could be improved with aftermarket if you feel the concept is better. The headlights aren't final, and new ones could be fabricated with just a little effort. The scoop is as it looked in the concept. Even if the vents aren't cut out, you could take it to a shop and have them cut, paint, and finish the car how you wanted. Basically, this is the concept in white. I have trouble believing that you think this is horrible when it looks so close to the concept. White isn't a flattering color. Keep that in mind, and do enjoy your Mustang. I'll be rolling around in a Camaro as soon as I get the money.

You can say that again! I almost died when I read half the people like them! The real ones are much better though, don't worry! And if you like it at all in white you're going to LOVE it in black! (ever seen a white base Mustang?)

hmmm. Maybe I shouldn't have said what I said about negative comments. Friggen' karma . But darn, you haters are passionate about...well...hating!?! You know that's not healthy for you, right? I'm betting that the majority of the reason you two h*te this car is because you are taking it for final production version...as you see it...in this flat white. BAD idea.

Well...then again, maybe you're not part of the 90% of people who love this car. Sorry.

Anyways, IF you don't like it; I for one don't want to hear it called garbage, or an "amateur-mobile"...because you are 120% wrong, no matter how you slice it. And it hurts my feelings, sort of.;p

I agree. Just because you have a hard time distinguishing prototype from production, please don't come on our forum and trash this thing of beauty. Constructive criticism is OK, but if you don't have enough imagination to take these early "spy" shots with a grain of salt, please keep your comments to yourself.

Thank you.
