I wouldnt read much into the changes we are seeing on those pics, those pics are computer renderings. The renderings are not based on the production car, but are made by an advertising firm so that they can make a very cool website. 3d modelers dont make 100% accurate replicas, theres always some changes. As long as it generally looks the same as the concept then its acceptable for the website.

You know you are right, I can only see a difference in the front. But I like it better. I can't see no other differences, besides the rear being more square. But in the chevy muscle magazine that come out a few weeks ago said this is just a concept version and there will be changes. But it is still a bad ass car.

Ok, found a press photo with the line that separates the fender from the fascia.

Ya it has always been like that it would not be right if it was one solid piece, because you know there will be body kits made for this car and if that front end would be one solid piece they would not be able to make a body kit. And I think a body kit on this car would be sweet.

It was posted a while back. Lots of threads to go through to see if it's been posted and that is pretty cool for those who haven't seen it yet.

I gotta disagree with you there, Mark. I think these may be real photos of the production version of the car. Yes, it's very close to the concept, and that's just what they've been telling us. The seperation lines for the front and rear facias look like how I would expect a production version to look. The roof line looks to be raised slightly to me, too. Besides the "big" changes to the front and rear shapes, the ride height is also higher. Again, Concept is too low for production. Yes, wheels look to be a bit smaller, too. This looks like just what I would expect to see in the transition from Concept to Production.

OK, this is just my opinion, but that's what I see.

I took another look at the GM of Canada website. I noticed that the Camaro gallery has a mix of photos of the Concept & the "Production" version. You can see photos of both front fascias, as you go through the gallery. It's hard to tell in the photos if the "production" version: the one with the built in front spoiler, still has the GM Design badge on the rocker panel area, just behind the front tire.

Also, on the "production" version, I'm guessing the spoiler, combined with what appears to be more of a "bumper" (it sticks out farther from the grill than the no-spoiler version) has to do with meeting bumper/crash standards.

Nice observations.

Thank you, well said. The response to the OP just shows how intense anticipation is and how high hopes are, I don't think we'll be disappointed.
