Given that the front vent is solid, it's reasonable to assume that it will become hollow on the complete car - which also means we could get cut out rear vents too (not a huge hassle really).

Love the look - lights will probably go back to single units given what Fbodfather has already posted about getting whatever would fit.

I like a single light design best, can't figure out what is going on with this, but the rest of grille and hood look very nice.

I'm sure the bowtie will be there. If you notice, none of the badging is on this car yet. You can be sure it will say "Camaro" and probably "GM" on the side. They want to use your car as advertising, so I don't see why they would leave their marks off. The only reason I can think of not to put "GM", "Camaro", a bowtie, "Z/28" or "SS" would be if they thought the consumer didn't want it. Obviously we all really want those markings, so they'd be stupid not to slap their labels on there.

This brings a tear to my eye . I am so much more satisfied than I thought I would be, judging from the back pic. THANK YOU GM

Look at the size of the hood bulge....this is obviously not the base car. Something bigger is lurking under there.

I really like what I see!

I'm betting the grill/headlight treatment design isn't the final design. And I hope the vent opening will be functional.

The car looks amazing! Thank you GM and the folks involved with the new Camaro for keeping it as close to the Concept as possible. (I feel bad for you if/when you have to design a new model. How do you improve upon perfection?!)

I can't disagree that the black looks good. But, Dragon did some chops awhile ago with a "billet" grille that looked sweet too.

Dragon...you up for any more chops with the billet grille since you have a new pic to work with?

I should have added my comments about the "front view" as well.

Would much rather see the halos (see the first pic of the Make All Requests Thread) than these headlights. I'll bet they change for production, I just hope it's to the halos.

I hope they punch out the vents (both front and side).

I also hope that the rear quarter window gets some factory tint (back window too) to help "cover up" that B-pillar.

And while I want a Bowtie on mine (billet is preferred over those "gold plastic things they're using now), I don't want that GM badge on mine. I don't really like that on any of their vehicles.

Actually, I'll be debadging mine except for the trim (RS, Z28, SS) and front bowtie.

This car is perfect. I'll take it as is.

I love it!!! I'm fine with the bowtie on it or not. The side vents not cut out do make it look like a toy car, so anything to make them look "real" would work, I know they won't really be used.

No problem with the headlights, so whatever they choose is fine. I do wonder if it's a V6 that we are looking at. Each photo shown gets better and better! I can't take this, hard to hold on to my patience! I can't wait!

Well at first I REALLY didnt like those headlights at all, but then after I picked my jaw up off the floor (about 15 minutes) I started to like them, even tho after what FBod posted not too long ago, im pretty sure the aren't final. The grill actually look awesome, even without the badge up front. But the only thing i really don't understand, is why put such a large RAM air style scoop up fron and not cut it out!? I imagine that it will be cut out, but im still not sure if the side vent should be cut out or not. To me it looks nice either way. Well im gonna stare at it more now, and daydream about how badly i want it. Thanks FBod for the picture!!

Awesome job GM. I was one of those people who filled out that early online survey and said "PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE KEEP THE CAR LOOKING LIKE THE CONCEPT!"

Thank you. You have just gained a new customer.

This is the exact car I have been waiting for since I was 16 years old. My bud had '67 camaro that I spent many hours riding and driving in. I used to say that GM should just break out the old molds and pound out that exact car. Well...you did something even better than that here. I just could never quite get into the sleek F body cars because I like the tough ground-pounder look of the old muscle cars. This brings back to life everything that represented.
