EDIT: that is if CAFE doesnt have anything to say about it!

and i totally agree that there are not many other things they can reveal about this car before they HAVE to start talking about the engine......i just hope its sooner than later, so i can start trash talking, even if its with numbers.
The corvette skipped a year in the 80's, between the C3 and C4 generations. it just wasnt ready in time

And with the Mustang, I don't really count the 5.0's as Mustangs. Some people may like 'em as performance vehicles, but, let's face it, they're not Mustangs.

I swear that these are the same camera's used by Ufologists. You'd figure that in this day and age, with all the mega pixels and telescopic lenses that are available, that we'd be able to take a decent photo of a car.

Other than that, the car's looking real good. Those head lights look good in black too. But I agree, get your copyright off the car.

I'm with Dragon on this one. The fuel door appears to be on the right quarter panel. The pictures in the left lane news website are better. They're not perfect, but you can see the detail a little better.

Man those are some cool shots! I was just thinking that I was hoping for some more spy shots, since it had been a little while. I loved it the first time I saw photos of it, but after seeing it more, I'm finding I like it more and more. I don't think we are going to be disappointed

Taking a look at the pictures from leftlanenews.com (which aren't a ton better), I have to hold out hope for the gas filler at least being on the correct side, and maybe still on top.



As much as I can't see the filler door on the passenger side in the pics, it isn't on the driver's side either. In the 2nd pic, you can see that it isn't on the driver's side, but it kind of looks like it's on the top of the driver's rear quarter.

I can't tell for sure in any of these pics. I'm still hoping, but as I've said before, it isn't a deal breaker.

Guys I for one am not concerned about the fuel filler door as to where it ends up.... simply I dont care... but all the conversation about it.... I couldn't help but look again for myself... from these pics gentlement it looks like it is on top in the original concept spot on drivers side.... look at the picture attached..... its there imo... if you look hard enough... drivers side quarter panel.... look at it.... so everyone should be happy!!!! Especially TAG, lol, you seemed really down about this one!!

back up light location

The location of the back up lights on the new Camaro kind of reflect the first GEN RS Camaro location. also on the 67 and 68 the gas cap was between the taillights and the 69 had the gas cap behind the license tag. the first pic is of a non RS 67 the second pic is of a RS/SS 68 and the 3rd is of a RS 69

Yeah, I think that the filler lid is now a flush black panel covering the opening on the driver's R/Q/P. But the car still looks fantastic even with all that snow & salt on it. Be great if it were video.

Those 2 pics that Jay just put up show that the gas cap is where it is on the concept imo. It might even be some kind of combination guys (ie. GM put the nice lookin fuel cap on top of the rear fender but the real place to fill your gas is behind the license plate) so then no one has to worry about spilling gas on their paint BUT retains that look of the concept at the same time.

actually, it was going to, but they did produce one 1983 Corvette... there were others that were made, but only one survived and it is in the National Corvette Museum... it is a white car with the C4 body but with wheels and engine that are, basically, a 1982 model.

but you are correct in that the C4 was not ready for the 1983 model year, so there were no commercially available Corvettes for that year model.

are you talking about the fox body Mustang generation? because if you are, I believe that most people remember those as the longest running generation of Mustang... and some would argue that they were the best generation of Mustang for modification purposes... I know alot of folks that have actually made LS1/T56 conversions out of old fox bodies... and those cars are usually crazy fast.


and back on the topic of the filler door, I hate to burst anyone's bubble, but there are really only two options here:
1) the filler door is missing from this car, giving just cause for the car to have the "this vehicle contains less than 10litres of fuel".. or
2) the filler door is there and the black body, combined with the snow and reflections, is hiding it from plain sight.

I know alot of people are holding out for some kind of sign from God that they will be able to get the fuel filler door just like the Concept's, but it really is time to just accept that you will probably have to go aftermarket to get this kind of filler cap and location.

I know this has been said time and time again, but man she looks mean. I can definintely see the CTS when I see the grille on these new pics. Now all we need is a pre-prod interior minus loose wires and dashboard fixtures and we can expect Santa to be real nice to us.
