I agree with the "round face" and "scrunched" comments. The car looks like it's frowning and has cheeks/bags under its eyes. I'm too used to 5th gen proportions. The upper grill should be taller, the lower should be shorter (and turn that frown upside down), and the headlights most definitely need to be bigger (nice style though).

But, again, I'm guessing/hoping it's just a movie design. Not the right base model to be anything more than a design thought for the 6th but haven't we already heard the design for the 6th gen is already "in the bag"? It's high time the cat was let out of said bag I think.

I see it more of an evolving of the current design from 2010 to narrowing of the upper grill and enlarging the lower one on the 2014 to narrowing the upper grill even more and enlarging the lower one more on this one.

so far I am on the fence. I like the front end just wish the head lights were a little bigger with some minor tweeks. rest I am unsure of but I with hold full out judging until I see something in person. but from looking at a pic my 12 ss is sticking around for a while. I was not a fan of the C7 until I saw one running around Kentucky and Detroit and now I love the styling although the corvetteforum does not. seems like tail light dislike runs in both camaro5 and corvetteforum for the new gen and refresh.

Overall i like it because of the potential in the design and I can see where it could be used to make a bad ass 6th gen. It is weird how high off the ground that thing is. The rims have to be at least 22's or 24's. I think that is the major thing that makes it look bad. There is no gap in the fender well but its like a foot off the ground with ground effects.

All in all ITS A MOVIE CAR!!!!!!! Did yall see that ZLv6 (v6 ZL1 clone) in last stand? That was a mega fail. This is least partially is own car and gives us a different perspective on designs. But no matter how much we like or dislike it, a production camaro will not look like this. Not because of the comments here or elsewhere on the interwebs but because there is nothing on this car as far as key features that would be street legal or production feasible for a camaro.

Maybe someone should photoshop the 2014 Camaro tail lights on a C7 and post it on their forum and say, " Count your blessings, you could have ended up with this", I bet that would shut them up!

No because then they would bitch about them not being round enough instead of having camaro tail lights

I agree, wonder if they can be bought that way with the lettering or they just used tire paint for the letters ?

I forget which member won CamaroFest at Phoenix, but he painted his letters white and gave a really cool look to his ride

I did that back in 1971, it looked good for about a week, then the color changed and it started flaking off.
