Official GM preproduction photo (4th gen)...

...of the 4th gen! As you can see, there are minor but noticable differences between this rendering and the final product, particularly in the front end (smaller parking lights, hood meets front facia much lower than on production model, flat hood...) This should clear up the fact that there is always time for last minute changes and we shouldn't pass judgement on the 5th gen till we see the final product (I love it no matter what it ends up looking like). Came across it and just thought I'd share...

Assuming that the picture is real...

That's a little harsh...and how do you figure it's the gayest picture you've ever seen?? I'd say it's relevant. He was just trying to point out that things can change from pre-pro to production. We can also take comfort in the fact that the 4th Gen was very similar to that pre-pro version of the 4th Gen. THAT picture signifies the beginning of what YOUR '02 SS became...so again, how do you figure that that picture is the gayest you've ever seen??

That is, indeed, a real picture -- taken on the 'patio' at the GM Design Dome. (much history on that patio!)

Yes -- there are changes up to when we go into regular production.....as we are constantly refining........

Good post, it shows how much things can change no matter how close you are to the FINAL PRODUCT...Do not just base the camaro on only what you have seen so far. subtle changes here or there can always happen. keep the faith

Very good point. It is so easy to think so many things are finalized when they are not.

Well, if the car looks 95% like the Bumblebee Camaro in the Transformers movie.. (larger mirrors and taller roof are the 5%) Especially the colors, then we are in for one hell of a car...

That is pretty sweet looking for a pre-pro, just like the new pre-pro. Going by that pic, it makes me look forward to Indy more and more!!!

And SSNightmare, that was really uncalled for dude, and mega-uncool!

Woah! You got me there!

This is a great post in how it shows last minute changes are easily made....just like Scott and a couple others said.

Now, I wonder if they'll do anything about the lines on the rear of the vehicle on the bumper....kinda between the brake lights where the rear deck lid closes to the top part of the bumper. Need to see an updated pic, but it gave me the impression that gap was a wee bit too large.

I always thought that the 94-97 models looked like cats (and I don't mean house cats... more like Jaguars or Panthers). The 98-02 models looked more like sharks because of the headlights and the change in the grille. I can't wait to get home and be there for the official launch. Thanks so much for the pics and the discourse. It's part of what keeps me sane over here in the big sandbox.

I hope they can make it appear less FAT and more slim and muscular like the '69.

+1

I always liked the look of the slim waste of that car. It would remind me of the 'Vette of that similar generation. I definately like the way GM has trimmed the over hangs on the front and rear ends. My friggin' '02 is as long as my '93 4Runner for cryin' out loud.

I think the production front bumper definately looked better than the proto' though.
