B pillars are a inexpensive and light way to make the car strong enough in case of accidents. I'd rather have a b pillar and not die in a crash.

then they tell everyone its gonna be a 2010 model and not an 09,
but they haven't changed the release date. still gonna be released in about a year. kinda like the 2009 cars that are going on sale now along with the 08's. its a really early release for a 2010 model as opposed to a late release for a 2009.

then the gas cap gets moved,
cost and safety. read other threads for more info

then they mess with the headlights,
read my sig

and where did that cowl hood go??
I imagine that not all cars are going to have the exact same hood. but more importantly, what you see on the hood of the car is called camouflage. it tends to hide details like that, thats what its there for

before we know it its gonna have a ford badge on it
Then it would be the best product that Ford ever produced.
And you failed to notice that very little is different from the concept, out of hundreds of possible details there are around 10 that people have picked up on as being different. I don't mean to sound like a jerk when saying this, but it needs to be said in every thread with new shots of the Camaro. You haven't been following as closely as some of us have and you don't know the reasoning behind all these choices, neither do I or 99.99% of the people out there. I gave you, and everyone else the short version of it. Please don't take it personally, I said it as much for you as anyone else that has the same concerns. But there are 2 reasons why it can't be exactly like the concept: safety and cost. Making everything exactly like the concept would be unsafe and cost too much. To make some things safer and still look like the concept would again bring more cost. So keeping that in mind, they have nearly pulled off a miracle to keep it as close as it is.


As for my impressions on this set, I'm glad that GM found a decent photographer . . . oops. I mean I'm glad that someone happened to be in the right place in the right time with a good camera and a steady hand. I wish that they would take all that camo off, but if these pics pre-date the order given by Bob Lutz then there isn't much that can be done. But beyond that, things are looking great.

Wow, I'm glad those aren't the production headlamps....seeing them from the front makes the front end look ugly. I bet on the final model GM throws in the concept grill and headlamps

About the rear rotors being slotted and the front not: I thought I noticed that too with the last picture update. I guess I'm not crazy afterall.

I'd love to see this thing in red. Can't wait for that, but this car's pre-pro trim is such a relief. I'm glad they didn't bastardize it.

Yeah there are photographers that know where different companies test new cars shoot them regularly. Death Valley, Arizona mountains, Minnesota winters etc.

Not The Real Headlights...excellent username!

Ok, maybe someone mentioned this before...but the rear tires...they look fairly wide. I have 255s on my Camaro, and they look considerably wider. Any ideas?

Scott...all I have to say, is thank you and that you are a saint for putting up with the negative comments, the headlight thing, and just everything! Thank you for being here and taking the time out of your extremely busy schedule to talk to us. You truly are the man!

Ahh I love new photos!

Here's something I read about testing in Sweden thought it was interesting:

Quote:
There are gigantic testing facilites up in the Arvidsjaur-region of northern Sweden, whole communites excist because of them - and most if not all major manufacturers do cold weather testing there...! That is why the Camaro was spotted there.

^ Yea, about the slotted rear rotors, arent the front rotors usually larger and basically better.
The pontiac G8 (Zeta, same platform) has larger rear rotors. Link to G8 test
Quote:
Interestingly, while all four of the G8's discs are ventilated, the rear pair is slightly larger in diameter than the fronts. It's not a big difference (12.64 vs. 12.76 inches, a measly 3 millimeters) and the fronts are clamped by twin-piston calipers while the rears get single-piston units, but it is an interesting engineering choice.

The last pic that Omega posted really shows the lines. You can see the "reverse mohawk" the bulging quarterpanels and the side crease that runs along the door toward the rear "vents" (the upper one, not the lower by the rocker panel, tho it's very visible too). I think it's one of the best pictures to have surfaced of the ones I've seen. The lighting really makes the paint-camo worthless.

I think I see that too. The last one on the first page of this thread shows them lit up bright and they do look rounded on the bottom like the concepts. Good eye! I hope we're not the only ones who see it.

I see it too...good eye. And, ^love your username...funny!

Not sure if these are the same pix as the others but w/ PS'd backgrounds...prolly different. But, yes...you can see the mohawk in the last pic. On top of that, you can also see the laptop mounted in the center console (like police cars have) for all their preproduction Camaro testing data....kinda neat.

Also, they might be testing the usefullness of slotted rear rotors vs regular rotors to help them determine which to use.
