Is this the platform for a new Z28? Dunno. But it was just shown at the Detroit auto show. Rear Wheel drive! Chevy Code130R

Underwhelming, design-wise.

Now the Silver one, OTOH, I kinda like! FWD? Oh well.

Well, its RWD & has a 109" wheel base (same as the ATS), so my guess is that it is on the Alpha platform -which is the platform for the next gen Camaro.

I have no worries about the V8. If an I-4 and a DOHC V-6 will fit in it, a cam-in-block V-8 certainly will, at least dimensionally. The I-4 would be just a long, and the DOHC V-6 is probably just as wide, and definitely taller. If GM can get a small block V-8 sideways into an Impala, surely they can get it into anything RWD.

God, I hope it's not the "style" of one. It reminds me of various 50s-60s-70s Bristols with their cabs that weren't really congruent with their bodies.

I could see some of the front end on the 130R concept carrying over to the next Camaro, and I like it pretty well (the front that is, not the rest).

From Jalopnik - their comments on it:


Code 130R, the first Chevrolet concept, is a four-seat coupe that seriously looks like a Camaro that made love to a Mazda RX-7 that had already made love to a 1 Series that was the illegitimate child of a Dodge Neon. We're not saying the design is derivative so much as it is a collage that when combined provides a completely underwhelming design for their perception of America's future.

I think you are just being a naysayer because of what you want....

I can see how they can save much more than 200!

Remember all those people that said they "absolutely hated how retro the 5th gen is"? If this new model is a "trial balloon" for the 6th gen Camaro, I hope the 5th gen naysayers are happy with the new result. If this is the direction the 6th gen Camaro goes, I'm not going to be happy about it. Time will tell if this new Chevy concept has anything to do with the 6th gen Camaro, I don't think so, but what do I know.

I would have to see it in person before I got too harsh in judgement. They say it looks pretty good in IRL.

I think there some good original design in the car, I like the less raked windshield, the dog house seems to be saying, "Look at me, I'm a Chevy" just a little too hard, (consider how they departed the norm with the Camaro and run with it) a few tweaks with the lines here and there, it could be a winner.
