I DON'T think we have TOO much to worry about, when it comes to production versions of GM concept cars .

I love it the way it is. In fact, with all the new info we have been receiving (quotes from GM execs), it sounds like not much is going to change on the exterior at all. This is good news for me. I don't know what else could be done to make the grill look better. I've seen a couple of pix and think there are a couple of options, but again, it's grown on me. I, for one, love the air inlet. It's not in your face aggressive like the TA Ram Air's, but a more subtle and functional this car needs to breath design.

Nitro -is that all that bothers you about the Camaro...the lack of nostalgia?
Look into some numbers and reviews by major automotive sites before you try to destroy the Camaro for how it looks.

I mean take a look at my signature. That is the best side-profile of any car in the WORLD. In my opinion, even the corvette has met it's match in styling.
I would take this car over a pure 69 look any day. The 69 was cool as all hell , but the 5th gen DEMANDS

Oh, and good post McFly, i've been looking for some past concept to production pictures

That's about the only thing on your list I can agree with.

The concept is perfect aside from my desire to see some GFX. (Which I'm sure will be an option, or at least available aftermarket.)

It'll be the same. Listen to what the GM exec's say and I'm sure all of us won't be dissapointed. The general public won't notice the difference. GM does a great job in that sense.

I have to say, the Crossfire is an example of the production version looking better than the concept.

That Crossfire Concept is just plain ugly in the front.

I agree 100%. I have no reason to think otherwise when we have been told by multiple sources that they can not tell the difference between the concept and the production version. The exterior will look almost exactly like the concept....

It is the interior I am more interested in.

Exactly. They haven't said a thing about this. Between the two, I'd have to go w/ the vert's interior over the silver coupes any day.

The only big difference is the color change from ugly orange to a nice clean white. And the lighting was blue. Other than that they are almost exactly the same.

But I agree, just making a color change made a HUGE difference in making it look much better.

Make all the orange/white from the concepts into a brushed nickel/silver color, the lighting the blue (or customizable would be even better) and it would be perfect. (Ok, I could do without the lower guages, I'd prefer a storage area there.)

Funny thing is the little indentations where the gauges are will become storage for change for quite a few people. lol. It will be odd having to look down at gauges rather than have them right there in your face. I kinda like the "different" idea and change from the norm. However, I do want that storage like you're saying....like the 4th Gen, but with a cover that doesn't pop off and actually opens/closes perfectly every time.

As far as the rest of the interior goes, I too, love the color change. Orange wasn't cutting it for me. Love the two tone leather seats...like the gauge cluster...get rid of those funky radio/ac controls...and put a rear view w/ temp and directional up there (old technology by now and should be included on every veh, IMO).

I think a couple things helped to completely change the look of the vert. As you guys already said... getting rid of that orange color, what a bad idea that was. Secondly, the lack of a top. I was not a big fan of the interior head space in the coupe either. I think getting rid of the headliner and that wierd rearview mirror helped as well.

If they left the interior as it is on the vert, then i would be ok with that; however, I still would like a more conservative interior.

Honestly, I think that some combination of a console makeover and an instrument cluster makeover would do the trick.
