Woohoo! The 6th Gen is coming! Let me make this educated guess: It will not be offered in any shade of BLUE. Period!

Could be worse. It could look like that butt ugly '69 Camaro you see people swooning over. Old inefficent POS cars belong in the smelter. If you think I'm being serious, get the stick out of your ass. M'kay?

I onno I highly doubt that
I think they're going to do what ford did and try to evolve the current design.
But then again, seeing what they want to do with the vette, they might just go revolutionary again
Damn I just contradicted myself lol

Still gonna go with what I first said. Evolving the current design while being smaller, lighter and more efficient in power and fuel economy
And I'm sure the SS will be a v8

Unless the base V8 is pushing 475hp and under $40k MSRP I'll likely skip the next gen. and pick up a 2015 special edition

Who cares what it is going to look like? I think they perfected it's look in this generation, I really don't want them to change it.

I have a lot of faith in GM and anticipate a repeat of the Gen1/Gen2 transition. Two great models that were totally different. The cool thing is the Gen5 as already without a doubt but it's mark in car styling history. We're driving living legends !!!!!

I can not believe this isn't on the home page. Spy shot at a show of the next Camaro. Now this is just a mock up but you can see the lines. http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl...:0&tx=76&ty=72

In reading one of the Camaro books, which details the Gen 1-4 pretty well and has a lot of nice photos, there are elements from all previous generations in the current one.

I'd like to see the next one take more cues from the 70-73 body style, at least with the front end that I really like more than the 1st gen's.



Translate some of these curves into some nice hard body lines to reflect or to improve upon the new Corvette design, and you would still have the 5th gen looking awesome, but the 6th gen also looking awesome as well.

2016 would be fine with me. I just hope that leaves enough time for a fifth gen Z28, and enough time for me to get one, a blue one.

It won't be a 4th gen rehash...not like how the 5th gen is based off the '69 Camaro. The rumors are that it will return to a sleeker design set forth by the 3rd/4th gens rather than an evolution of the 5th gen.

I wholeheartedly concur. I LOVE the styling of my 5th Gen. 'VERT. The 5th Gen. is aesthetically absolutely incredible. The 'VERT just does it for me.

I hope the 6th gen. won't deviate too much in design, if at all, from the 5th gen. Smaller and lighter with an engine upgrade and I'm in like Flint!

..Should be nice, but then again like the 5th gen it's no F-Body. At least it's not going to be a full size car next rehash.

The 5th gen looks good, but it is not hard to top. They never topped any of the previous generations with other gens, they just changed the styling to look more modern.

Excluding the 4th gen anyway, that was a huge step down from the car before it.

Not quite.. biggest step in the wrong direction was 1969 and 1970. They had something in the 69 chassis, but the 1970 turn on it's head just doesn't scream Camaro. The Trans Am ran far and away with the 2nd gen.

1st and 3rd gen really do. What we need to see is the same radical change that came with the 3rd gen. The chassis design, the new body molding techniques found in that rear hatch glass. The emphasis on streamlining as seen with the raked windshield (which was nutso for the time).

4th gen, just a RWD sport coupe. The Trans Am ran with that generation easily.

Just need to look back at what made the 1969 and 1982 Camaros great game changers. Moreso the 1982.

I wanna see something a little smaller, maybe 200 lbs lighter with a 475 HP V8 and a 350 HP V6 give or take a few. I like the current interior, but less plasticy stuff would be nice. The exterior of the Camaro already looks amazing, so maybe just a little refresh would be good. I will be waiting for the 2017/18 ZL1!

How does the 2015 Mustang beat the 2016 Camaro by 2 years?

Word is that the 2015 Mustang is the big change to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the car? Not to mention they could pull another 1964.5 thing and have the 6th gen Mustang pop up in mid 2014.

Where as the 2016 Camaro could be released as a 2017 MY car in mid '16 to harken back to how it was originally released 50 years prior as well.

Not to mention if GM wants to go all out and pull off a radical change like they did in '82, I'd say take the extra two years and curbstomp the Ford design team.

Thing is though, Ford has indicated in the past that the D2C platform that underpins the 05-current car isn't going anywhere by 2014-2015. So it remains to be seen just how flexible the D2C platform is for Ford and whether or not they'll capitalize on their refined SRA or go to an IRS.

Something GM could also capitalize on: Developing a super light weight IRS design for both the ATS-V and the Camaro SS.

I'd like to see a V6 for us Fuel cost saving people that still want some POWER when needed > All the juice and no seeds. Say twin Turbos like the LENO Sema car. V6 with 426 horse power and still get 30MPG not thats what we NEED.
