well, sure glad that that yellow tail light thing is probably gonna change back to red, cuz if it didn't, I'd have Crapped a Horse, and then I cry,(do to the fact that a horse came out my arse, and that the taillights are yellow)but I'm glad that's probably not going to happen

ow wow, those are nice pics. Not only are they clear and focused, but they are great angle shots. They are the type of angles that you would see in a magazine or something if you know what i mean.
I really like the exhaust tips and the front bumper is perfect!
I'm so proud to be a GM guy!

Just got my email telling me to get back here! Finally got the photo with the location huh? Well, it would have been cool to have had the gas filler at the top but hey... the car still is looking wicked!

I'm ok with the gas filler on the passenger side, I've had that before and like most said, no accidently banging the driver's door.

These photos are coming out so frequently that it 's messing with my mind... I keep thinking the car will be out in a couple of months! Errr

Boo for passenger side gas cap, its not a deal breaker for me at all even though its a small inconvenience. But hooray for the wide ass tires! Those are the 20's as seen before, so those brake rotors are probably bigger than they seem. The caliper looks like a single piston though, oh well I'm sure it'll stop on a dime and it might not even be the production brake setup on it. Again, GREAT JOB GM!!!

Reasoning why I think its a V8:

1: Slot in nose is open, well go figure, the intakes on small blocks are there in the front.
2: The dual exhaust tips, definitly 2 mufflers and tips, so far only singles have been seen (V6 anyone!)
3: Wide, low profile tires.

Everything looks good to my eyes!!! It seems they are keeping most of the concept content at this point.

Cobalt has the gas cap on the passenger side. It makes me weep for the future of mankind that walking 2 extra feet to the passenger side counts as an inconvenience.

I know the gas cap was moved because some people might spill gas on the paint that way. I say anyone who ruins their paint job by spilling gas on it because they're too incompetent to fill using a top located gas cap should be punched in the face and their Camaro given to someone more deserving.

So not that the rear lights are going to stay that way, but if they did it wouldn't be hard at all to convert them to all red. No worries there at all.

What I am worried about are those brakes. If those are what are going on the production V8 model, I will definitely buy some real brakes as soon as I buy the car. Those things are pathetic.

All we can tell about the front scoop is that it is indented. The other one was indented too. It might not be fully cut through. It does look like true duals though.

because it needs to be said every second or third post, this is a reminder that the amber rear lights are Euro and Australian spec taillights... they will most likely be red on the North American production car... the 4th gens had similar lights for cars that were shipped outside of the North American market, so I cannot see that this generation would be any different... and you know they do have to test those lights to be able to make sure that they are ready for production and operate as planned.

keep the faith, folks, keep the faith

also...I just need to ask. Worrys about those brakes (I suppose) are well founded. But Ponder this; Scott, and now Bob Lutz has said that this car is being built with a "best in class" philosophy, right?

Do you have that little trust in GM, and the Camaro team, to think they're going to build a car that can barely stop??!??!??
C'mon,

So TAG, are you OK buddy?
I know, this IS pretty disappointing, I feel your pain man. But, maybe GM just hasn't worked out the mass production details of the top of the line Camaro fuel filler yet? Or, there will always be bondo and the after market
Hope you're OK man, but we're still gonna be buying this awesome machine when they're released.

Thumbs down

Once again, my biggest complaint is the back bumper and those backup lights.

The flush, clean concept rear end is so much better. That lower buldge in the bumper is dumb.

GM, are you listening
