Wow GM GREAT JOB!!!!! The Camaro is as close to the concept as any of us could have hoped for.












I'm going to be soo jealous of you all once you get your Camaro's and I'm still waiting for mine. What shall I do in the mean time....

I never realized how freaking hard it is to color something that's white....
but it's coming along...this is a first shot at it.
It doesn't help that GM put a real flat white on there...for obvious reasons of course...but geesh - Photoshop hates it.

all in all the lines look very good now that we can see them a little better on the hi rez pic. That rearend looks about 4" too long. I hope its just the angle because it looks odd. I guess I'm just not used to seeing a camaro with a deck. the third and fourth gens didn't have much of a deck after the hatch. Looks like they wanted to keep a hatch type back look but give it a ist and second gen type deck. Really throws me off. I don't know what to think

yes much better in blue.

I think the car would look good with a 89 transam GTA type spoiler that slopes up on the side quarters before going across 4-5" above the deck

All -- we're exceedingly happy with your responses to the picture of the white car.......just great to see the excitement and passion you have for the new Camaro. (and we live for this!)

For those of you in Michigan and Arizona -- and hey -- other states as well -- keep your eyes open -- cammo is officially off......and as Ed Peper says -- we hope you'll take pictures (hopefully good ones....) and post 'em!


Oh -- and Bowtie Guy -- careful of those 'Camarogasms' when you're driving!

(shared your comment with the group -- everyone cracked up for quite some time!)

Darn it Scott, I'm out of virgins to send. I do live in LA after all...they're hard to come by out here.

So with that new higher res picture, we can confirm that at least the prototype has a glass panel in the roof of some sort, cowl induction, and some sort of vents in front of the rear wheels. Me likey so far.

I was shocked to see the sunroof at first, but then I realized that they pretty much have to design two sets of roofs and headliners for any car with a sunroof option, so I guess it wasn't too much harder to design both a reverse 'hawk and a flat roof with a glass panel. I agree, that sure makes for a difficult decision for a lot of people, but I know that I will definitely order a sunroof if it is offered. And one should be, since the Challenger offers one and a glass-roofed Mustang variant is planned.

For gas caps, I have honestly never noticed any extra effort having to go around to the passenger side to fill up. I'm one of those very rare un-Americans who thinks nothing of walking a couple extra feet. I take the stairs to my cube every day, as I work on the second floor (first floor for our friends across the pond), yet all of my coworkers take the elevator. As far as sitting in the car and pumping a few extra gallons in after it shuts off, both are no-nos. Sitting in the car supposedly increases static electricity build-up, and while I'm sure the threat is exaggerated, you're still technically not supposed to do that. Topping off is a real thing to never do though. The cut-off point is set for a reason, and pumping in more after it shuts itself off just floods the charcoal canister and will likely lead to costly repairs down the line. Really, you should never do that. Getting an extra 2 tenths of a gallon in the tank is just not worth it. And with people causing problems when you pull in head-to-head....WOW. I live in LA, land of the incompetent and self-centered driver, and I have never had anyone cause a problem like that. That is just unbelievable that would happen.

You want a difficult gas filler? My 1970 Olds has the filler behind the rear license plate (it folds down to expose the cap), and it won't hold the nozzle in place by itself, so I have to kneel behind the car physically holding the nozzle in while it fills up. It has a 20 gallon tank too. Now that is an annoying fuel filler.

Why are y'all still saying whoot! it still has the vents!! Are my eyes bad? because all I see are three indentations, not a single cut through the metal. Yes, yes, I still love it, but those are NOT vents! Don't get me wrong, It's awesome, and I appreciate Scott's comments about how not everything is production yet, so I still have hope about my vents, at least on the V8, or "A" V8 since there probably will be more than one. I also appreciate Scott's comments I first saw on Josh's TheGMsource.com about it being 65% done. I'm hopeing for better gauges, deeper, more detail. But hey, it's a camaro, and I love the shape! I wanna go Stang huntin!

The larger picture shows more detail, looks nice. Anyone got some pictures showing the actual car from the front, to see grille and the back? Am I wrong or is this car delayed a year until end of 2009?

camaro10, like you, I pray that they "cut open" those air vents. If there's one thing that I think is so cheasy, it's having air inlets, vents, etc that DON'T WORK. I think it's a waste even putting them on. One of my biggest complaints about the Mustang...air vents. My wifes 00 had them. The air vents in the sides were for show and the one in the hood didn't work either. CHEASY. I sure hope they cut'em open!!!

camarosc35, ^the Camaro has NOT been delayed until the end of 09.

I doubt they'll cut them open, and even if they do they'll be non-working... It's not like the slots will be cooling it's "mid-engine" or anything. I think it's cheesy too, designers shouldn't put non-functioning vents on cars-- leave that to Mattel. It worked nicely on the mustang because that's a cheesy car
