Well, that got one thing right: the headlights. Wow. Those look amazing. I am still not a fan of the taillights. Give us the current taillights (none 2014 model) and those 6th gen headlights, and it would be amazing!

At first I was a bit scared but after really looking at it... I LIKE IT, the only thing that bothers me is how small the front upper grille is, I love the side, the rear lights actually look GOOD on that back bumper. But that upper grille is just too small.... the headlights look great and that massive lower grille looks aggressive.

So I give a on everything EXCEPT that upper grille, just too small for me, if it was about an inch or 2 larger I think it'd be perfect.

Guess we will have to wait and see if this is the real deal!

EDIT: And I don't see how this would be a 2014 redesigned 'bumblebee' edition Camaro.... This car is very clearly more than just a front and rear bumper change.... Though it could be a 5th gen w/ a front/back bumper and all 4 quarter panel replacement and side skirts in addition to near headlights and hood. That is an aweful lot of a change just for a bumble bee edition car.....

From the side view, the from looks mustang-ish. Not that big of a fan of the fron end look...The rear however is kind of cool with the vents.

even if that does fortell the next gen, it's on a 5thgen, so the effect will be different.

If this is referring to the yellow car, then I doubt that it is a look into the '16. The yellow car looks more like a whiff of the current '14. In addition, the body clearly is based from the 5th gen.

The 6th gen. has its work cut out for it.

Well it's a super ultra modified 5th gen. Even if elements of that front fascia make it to the 6th gen (I suspect the headlight assembly and DRL design might), it's going look awkward on the outdated 5th gen body.

Yeah you are right, I agree that it's not what a 6th gen will look like but it probably hints the direction it will take styling wise.

Okay I'm seriously missing what makes it look like a Volt.



OMG low profile headlights and a grille. LOOKS LIKE A VOLT.

Think they went a bit overboard with it, like the rest of vehicles in the movie

A few things:

1) I wish people would quit calling Camaros that are blatantly 5thgens, 6thgens. Minor styling hints? Probably, there usually are in these types of cases. Different body parts than a stock 5thgen? Definitely. A whole new generation? NOT. EVEN. CLOSE.

2) It's obvious that they're going for more of a desert race type theme (and with the 1st gen Bumblebee). But, to actually look decent, IMO...

3) Needs the GFX painted yellow to visually lower it.

4) Needs an actual lowering. The headlights on their own look GREAT, but much too high to go with the rest of the car. Lowering a bit more will help alleviate some of the visual mismatch.

5) It's just too round and bloated looking overall, to my eyes.

6) We had "Corvette-like" taillights on the early 5thgens, "sunglasses" taillights on the Euro cars, "Prelude" taillights on the 2014, and now you can throw "telephone" taillights into the dramatic Camaro taillight saga.

7) C7 Corvette FTW!... SEXIEST. CORVETTE. EVAR. ("Camaro" taillights and all).

And the vehicles in this new Transformers movie are so awful I almost wish GM had pulled support for it.

Nope, not a fan. If it IS a harbinger of the 6th gen I'm really glad I was able to get my 5th. Never been a fan of the rounded off look. Reminds me of what Ford did with the 4th gen Mustang and the updated 5th gen look.

Yeah... the 2014 "updates" are why I bought a 2013... to me, the only thing the 2014 has going for it is the Z/28... but, then again... maybe the changes will grow on me.
