Looks pretty good overall. Will be nice to see a finished version later this year.

I know it may not be finished, but I'm happier with the choice of 4 headlights than the concept's 2. Looks good, and speaks to the '93-'97 Camaro I hold so dear in my heart I'm glad to see a black surrounding area too.

That is one beautiful car! I can't wait to get one even more now!!!

I kinda' like the headlights because it doesn't scream retro' to me, like the rest of the car. I've always wanted a '69 anyways, so I don't mind that it looks like one (to me) so I think the headlights are a tasteful way to maybe distinguish this car. I like the concept car highlights better, but these are very nice.

JMHO

This is awesome! The front helps make up my mind. The air intake is there even though it's not punched through. This grille isn't right though. I like the egg crate of the concept better, but I'm sure it will look better with the real headlights, HID Projector with halo's please! Also, from this angle, I think it's safe to say the rear side vents won't be cut out!

I'm with the folks who thought this was the v6 trim, because the insert on the upper valance looks solid. But overall, me likey.
+1... not that crazy about those headlights, so I'm hoping they won't stay. Give me angel eyes!!!

Please make the vents and RAM air functional. Not sure about the head lights just yet... Not bad but not sure.

So very happy with the rest of it. I kinda like it without the bowtie... But the rest of the driving world should have to see that kick your @$$ car in your rear view getting ready to blow by you is a CHEVY!!! So, they better have it on there....

WELL DONE!!!

This car definitely looks a lot better from the front than it does from the rear. I really hope the air intake and the side vents are cut out. It just looks too much like a toy with them there but not cut all the way through.

I agree with what someone else said a while back: "Either cut them out, or don't have them at all". But I really think they add a lot to the awesomeness of the car, so please just cut them through.

I realize those of us that really want them can get them cut out ourselves later, but I don't want the overall impression of the new Camaro to include dent-vents.

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.

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?!)
