The front end is horrible. My wife saw a picture of it last night and said, ugh, did you see the Transformers Camaro, the front end is ugly.

Wow!!! That looks so KILLER!! I love how the designers made it look even more futuristic than the 5th gen, but still look retro 67'! I doubt it's going to look exactly like this concept, but it's gonna be very close to this just smaller.

I'm shocked too!!! The front end of the 5th gen refresh almost caused deadly riots amongst the Camaro faithful, and then THIS Hyundai/Scion-looking hideous thing is getting rave reviews??? Oh man!! Thank God Fbodfather said this isn't the 6th gen.

They need to lower the center of gravity of the car or paint the GFX. Honestly, with the dark GFX and the ride height, it makes it look like a 4x4. I am a fan of the headlights, though I doubt this is a foreshadowing of the 6th gen given the fact that the rear is still distinctly 5th gen. It wouldn't be a 'new model.'

My suspicion is that this may be a hint to the styling queues of the front end, much like they did with the Corvette concept. The real car came out looking very different, though some of the styling queues and lines were similar.

Seems like T4 bumblebee front was designed to look more like the audi A5 headlights. I miss that american muscle look. Especially the long and wide front grill.

I think the back, sides, and rims look amazing, but I think I'm in the minority of people who don't like the front. It's too rounded off and bulbous. if the upper grill and headlights were thicker top to bottom that would be great.

I especially like the lettering on the tires, I think I'm gonna look into doing that on my ZL1....

If GM made the 5th gen for the next twenty years my guess would be most on here would love it. It seems as if members try to justify their car as the best by disliking and tearing down anything new. I'm not just talking about this T4 Camaro, either. I'm talking this, all the concept versions of the 6th gen, the '14 refresh on the LT, SS and the new Z28.
This is the first sports car to beat the Mustang in sales...people have every right to think it doesn't need any radical changes. It's also hard to understand why Chevy didn't just use the new Z/28 for this. The timing would be perfect to use the movie as a marketing tool.

The only thing about the 5th gen that I think could be improved is it looks a little fat--trimming a few inches off it would probably help alot. Same basic design, just a little smaller and lighter.

The Corvette Stingray concept was never intended for production and the C7 isn't derived from it.

The problem is you cannot keep a design stagnant for too long, people that have the same design as was available 5 or six years ago are not likely to want something that looks just like they have, what's the point? Plus those that didn't care for the original design may be drawn to the updated design, bringing in new buyers. I still feel one of the big reasons the Camaro went away the last time is it stayed the same for too long. In the car world change is usually a good thing.
Look back, it used to be in the 60's that foreign cars remained pretty much the same for 10 years while American cars had refreshes every year and completely new cars every two or three years. Now many Japanese cars are totally redesigned every 4 years or so where American cars usually just get a refresh in 4 or 5 years.

I like the rear end, but don't like the front, difficult to tell but still looks a little on the large side.

I'm not liking the front & rear end, It just doesn't look as tough/aggressive as the 5th gen's design. The 6th gens redesign if this is it, Makes it look about as tough as a Pontiac Sunfire.

As its been stated numerous times this is just a 5th Gen with some customizing done for the movie, it is not a 6th gen in any form or fashion.

NO NO NO! This look ruins the Camaro for me. I thought GM had finally learned a little something when they finally released the 2010, but I guess not.
If they want to redesign the Camaro, it needs to show more of its heritage i.e. loosely base it around the 2nd Gen. If this, or anything close to this is what hits the dealerships, I will NOT be buying another Camaro as planned for me wife.

This may not resemble the real 6th Gen. at all. However, if it does, they missed the mark on the front end. It's not aggressive or well designed what-so-ever. The rest of the car I can live with, but the front is hideous from every aspect except the headlights (and even that is just so-so).

No way the final production version looks like that. That is just hideous its like a mix between a focus, prelude coupe with audi led hids and maybe a lotus elise frame. There is nothing muscle about that.

You know what I think? I think Tran likes starting these threads to invoke conversation and to read all the off the wall thoughts people come up with.
I think it is a movie prop and nothing more.

The vote is in ...

It doesn't have the "muscle look" that attracted so many to Gen 5.

It may cater to the new younger folks but will be a hard sell to those who remember the good ol days.

No BAD intended, but look at this article ---- Me thinks the new design contributed to this loss of crown.... (no mod narrative amendments needed)

I can't believe how ppl so quick to say 6 gen. It's clearly a 2014 refresh with an ugly front end made for a movie.
