The prototype looks like the concept car federalized and modernized for market. I especially like the smooth transition from the base of the windshield to the A pillar, which is more rounded, more steeply raked than the concept car. The wheels are just like the concepts and look to be about "19. I just hope they're the same size all around, as the front wheel looks obscured by the angle the shot was taken. Overall, this photo shows that we have a lot to look forward to.
Kudos to GM Design, looks like they have another hit on their hands!

yeah...agreed.

Again...just a prototype. They won't go to extroardinary lengths to deck it out w/ all the options. There's still a lot of time....and those bits and peices of info will continue to trickle in.

It's nice to see something and I'm not worried. Yet.

The wheels look small, the bra(s) will hide the detail (and spoilers) and I reckon they'll have kept the hood and roof ridges/scoops and other bits and bobs too.

As long as I can whack on some 20s (they look like 19s) I think I'll be happy.

Nothing has changed. The 2010 model year for the Camaro will just have an extremely long run, being built in 2008, for sale in early 2009.

It does look like some sort of bottle on the windshield. Almost like bottle of sunscreen. Is it real hot and sunny down there this time of year?

or maybe its Octane boost

STUNNING!! I'm not suprised about the rear view mirror. I do like the fact that they enlarged the side mirrors and but kept it true to the concept. I think the wheels are 19 and should be an option.

I could be totally wrong, but it looks to me like the thing on the windshield is the key ring (key, fob, and a tag). On all the car lots I worked on, we used to put the keys under the wiper like that when we were moving the lot around. And when I went to the Lexus Ride-and-Drive (training), they almost always put the keys under the wiper....easy to find and can't be locked in the car from there.

another mention of b-pillar

(as TAG mentioned earlier), I am wondering why you can't see the b-pillar on the passenger side.

I guess the door windows are huge and you just can't see the passenger b-pillar at this angle in the photo.

I think it would be cool if GM is lying and there actually will not be a b-pillar, in an effort to keep others from copying the Camaro.

It looks as if he is hiding the b-pillar because there really isn't one there and it's a surprise to be mentioned later.

I'm sure GM took care of details like that in the image before they released it to the dogs

What I would have done if I were GM would be show a B pillar, show that the cowl isn't there anymore, show that there isn't a nifty gascap, etc, basically make it boring to enrage us and keep us arguing for some time to come. I'm sure that there are people at GM that can use photoshop as well as anyone. THEN when the real deal hits us we will fall in love again.

That's true... There's nothing to say that they didn't photoshop this image before releasing it... There was a delay of a few days there, and it's not like they had to develop any film or anything.

I seriously doubt that GM would straight out lie to us and say "There will be a B-Pillar" if they weren't actually planning on putting one on. If anything, they would have hinted towards it and left us all to jump to our own conclusions, which we certainly would.

Agreed...key fob

At first, I thought (since there was no b-pillar) that it could have been an old picture. Then chalked it up to it being a large window and us just not being able to see the pillar. It would be nice if GM was the only one to not have a b-pillar. But, the way I see it, Ford put the pillar in the Mustang, Dodge, put it in the Challenger, and basically, it's going to happen on the Camaro. There's no reason for GM to hide that fact anymore. The competition kind of gave in (if you will) by putting in the pillar. I understand. I was upset at first. But, I'm over it. I "HAVE FAITH!!!"

And yeah...that would make my day if it was really not there and that was the plan on building it. That would really get me stoked!

That's another thing I was really hoping they'd keep. I loved that steering wheel.

Oh, and I don't think they PD's that photo. I bet it's just a regular old photo from a cell phone or something.

Don't underestimate them. Ed is standing there for a reason, if they covered one B Pillar, they would blur/black out the other.

I have no doubt that is a well designed teaser pic to keep the chatter going

Mr. Lutz Sprung this picture on everybody...Remember in his original blog he said: "I can't show it yet...".

Well, all of a sudden it popped up. Good 'ole Bob, always surprising people...

And I'm going to go out on a limb here, and say that...yeah this was a posed picture. That no they didn't make Ed hug the car, but that he did hug the car, and somebody said: "Do that again." Then they positioned it just right (by accident or not), and we just can't see the B-pillar. lucky us....

Also...anybody notice the door locks? You know...the shiny thing on the sill of the passenger door...rather than a plastic thingummy near the door handle... Thank you!!! I love it! :eek:

But, at this point in time, when Bob Lutz and Scott have already admitted that there will be a b-piller, would be the purpose in hiding the b-pillar? If everyone already knows it's going to be there, why should they hide it? I mean, is it that far out that another car company (Dodge) could steal GM's idea and use it in the Challenger? I really don't know. I just think there's no reason in hiding it. Maybe, the person who posted the photo, PS'd it out for the heck of it to keep us guessing. Maybe it's there and we just can't see it. Who knows.....

Well, the way I figure it, the pillar on the passenger side should be right behind where that white rectangle is on the windshield.

The question is: Is the rectangle a sticker on the car, or a half-assed attempt the cover up the pillar? If you look closely, and use a lot of imagination, you can see a little black dot (darker than the rest of the door) on the door right on the corner where the edge of the door meets the edge of the white box. Could it be the corner of the pillar?

I do see that "shiny" thing you are talking about. It could be a door lock. Personally, I don't mind either way they go w/ this. I'd rather not have a metal door lock on the side of the door. I'd rather have it plastic, that blends in w/ the inside of the door shell...or leather...either or, I don't mind. I just don't want it to be metal (cause that crap gets hot on your arm when you rest it on the door in the hot sun).

Triangle on roof w/ a dot connected to the bottom of it. Below that is a white rectange on the windshield. Behind that white rectange is where I think the pillar would go.
