they are 245/45-ZR20s... the ones that are on the Concept style wheels are also Pirellis, which is something that I've rarely seen on any GM car.

I've very pleased with all aspects of the car... and I can't wait to hear what the f-bodfather himself has to say about them uncovering the mules

Looks good. I'm glad about the sunroof. I just can't help but be extremely curious about the location of the gas cap.

not to be a fuddy duddy to those thinking that the gas cap might be on top, but this is going to be a global car, so the possibilty exists that the filler door will be on the passenger side of the car for left drive variants... this has been the case on other "global" cars from GM, Ford and Chrysler in the past... just a thought, though, no promises that that is correct.

Not to knock your reasoning, but I have looked at many cars and trucks and it seems that no matter where they are built or sold, the Gas cap is located opposite the side where the exhaust is located on single exhaust versions.... The Sky is sold in other countries, as the Opel GT (Europe) and Daewoo (Korea) and the gas cap is on the driver's side.. the HHR is not sold in other countries, and the gas cap is on the passenger's side...
Of course we don't know for sure if the Camaro will come with any versions that have a single exhaust (I say probably the entry level V6 will).
We do know it is not behind the license plate or on the rear panel

The car looks awesome! I can't wait to get my hands on one.

Are those the reverse lights in the bumper, or are they still hidden above the exhaust pipes?

noticed something about the pic: The side-mirrors are body color. Which help to make them look that much sleeker. Unlike that White Prototype we saw some weeks ago. With those ugly black side mirrors on a white body.

I also noticed that! Maybe the gas cap is the same color as the body of the car, and that's why it doesn't just jump right out at us? On the concept it appeared to be a kind of "chrome" material or something... but they might have done that to make the gas cap stand out a little more so we would notice it and say "HEY... Look where it is!" lol

I am REALLY excited if that is a sunroof!!! :party0048: If I can't have t-tops, I want a sunroof!!

It's also missing the bowtie on the rear between the taillamps.

I'd stake my life on that being soley because it's a Prototype. All that car is, is what we saw under all that heavy camo. Mr. Lutz just ordered it all off from now on as I understand it.

I don't know, there are a lot of people who really like the vents... I'm not sure if they would take those off. You can see the vents on the camo'd prototypes, too.

The side marker lights are bigger too, I hope they have the bowtie in them like on the new Malibu. Also the exhaust's are smaller and don't have the straight line at the top, but both of those things are acceptable. One thing I'm not likeing is the way the concept wheels have evolved, they don't look as much like the concept wheels as the new Malibu LS's wheels do.

No spoiler on the white car, and the valance between the taillamps almost looks concave. Obviously, the pic is fuzzy, but the "C"pillar looks smaller, and The reverse lights look like little ovals cut out on the rear bumper. The concept never had any so I guess they had to put them somewhere, but I would have thought on either side of the licence plate or something like that. My CTS also has the gas door on the passenger side with dual exhausts, so that could be a possibility. I do hope it's on the deck, but not likely. I also like the door handles body color. Helps to hide them. I wonder if the sunroof will still have the reverse mohawk....Just noticed, the bumper also has an extra crease or "lip" just above the black part. On the concept it's flush.
