Wow - I certainly didn't expect to see this so early-on. I'm quite amazed how close that is to the concept - I just wish we had some super-clean-high-res pics (that's just greedy isn't it?!).

Anyway, I cannot WAIT to see the first promotional shots of this car. Love it. Really. I do!

I think the car looks great and I wouldn't change a thing on it. Now seeing it with the spolier and trim and all cleaned up it looks wide and mean like the concept. I think it looks 1000 times better with out the mohawk, I'm definitely getting a sunroof. The pre-pro cars looked almost too tall and narrow but now the production car still has the wide sinister look to it. I can't wait to see the color sheet and see the production car in black. I wonder what size the rear tires are on this car. I would hope 275 but they look a little slimmer.

The silver car is about perfect for me. I like the front bumper a lot..Definitely tougher. The white car looked a little anemic. The new bumblebee bumper looks pretty tough..I'd like it for a Supercharged z28 (or my supercharged 1LE/B4C thankyouverymuch). There were a couple shots of the front intakes and I was thinking to myself....what a great place for intercoolers or brake ducts! The reverse lights are a bit odd. I would prefer them on either side of the rear plate. I also think the rear bumper of the concept looks a little bit better without the line that is right above the rear diffuser tray/muffler cover. The rounded look of the concept gave it a nicer butt. The foglights are a bit big...but I'm gonna need 'em. Please have your accessory designers make some snap in black screens or plastic plexi covers for them as our OHIO roads will break the lenses in a hurry.

As for the convertible: The thing that some car makers get right and most get wrong is filling out the wheel well. Saturn Aura, Cadillac CTS-V, Acura TL, BMW, and the latest malibu do a great job of making it look like the tire *barely* fits in the wheelwell. It gives the car the appearance of being lowered. The black convertible sits a little high and the wheels/tires don't fill it out. I'm all for creating a difference in the look between the v6 and the v8 (s')...but the wheel offset needs to be correct..even on the base car.

Another thing about the convertible...I don't see any way of fixing it, but the wider opening for the covertible top narrows the deck surfaces at the sides...kinda looses it's hips. Reminds me a bit of a picnic basket..or the pt cruiser convertible...Doesn't matter...I'm going hard top. I will say this, it looks great with the top up....something not easy to do.

I can say this:

The V6 will look somewhat different from the V8 -- the problem is that you aren't really sure what you've seen at this point in time..........

But let me ask you this: Are you happy with the Silver coupe or the black convertible? What do you like? What don't you like? (that's a rhetorical question....)

We talked with the "12 disciples of which there are 15" at length about the car -- and they felt that it was important to keep the V6 and V8 appearances apart.........and I think you'll find that this is the case once you see the model lineup.

If you have not yet signed up on www.chevrolet.com/camaro -- may I suggest you do so -- as we'll send you an email when we put the info. out there....

You can anticipate getting a lot of info the last few days of July ..... (engines- -- packages -- options - colors -- )

Again -- THANK YOU for the kind words about the silver car -- we're just as 'geeked' as you are........
imo the silver coupe and the vert look like they are the same. the problem I have with the pics of the silver car is that the angle the pics were taken from makes the car look flat/rectangular it has no ass/hips. i was expecting it to be a little wider in the back and the lighting in the silver pic also make the lip on the bumper look bigger than it is because the lip looks fine on the vert.. higher res pics before I make a final verdict.

i too wished the rear looked more concept like...the width is smaller and taillights are smaller...lost a bit of its coke bottle shape...i don't know if they can do anything about it now but it would be cool

I actually got used to seeing it without a spoiler, so seeing it with the spoiler is waht threw me at first. It looks a little less mean from the back with it, but I still love it.

It's 4:15 AM. I am a fan. My devotion is unwaivering.

By the way, it was hard finding an SS logo when I'm wolding my eye lids open with scotch tape.

I digress. I don't think it's that bad. Now I see the Light....if this is what we can expect, Look damn good.


Fandango...
The new version you produced looks great. Great Job slaving till 4:15am on it...the results are well worth it.

fbodfather...thanks for the link - I signed up. I'm also going to Indy in Sept..can't wait.

As far as the two versions...both look great. Everyone working on this has done a fantastic job keeping true to the concept...and for that matter making the concept in the first place.

And, I'm already on the list to buy one when they first come out.

Some things I'll be looking for are:
1. Halo headlights on my 2010 SS or Z28 (if they would turn in the direction the car is turning...that would be awesome. (I would like to scratch my head and polish these as well)
2. Larger spoiler on the rear similar to the First Gen Camaro's (Dragoneye also did a rendering showing one earlier in this forum)
3. If the fins in front of the rear tire are clearly defined (the guy who took the pic of the latest coupe at the Christian Slater filming said that they were not well defined).
4. I'm anxiously awaiting pics of the interior

Good point. Ratchet needs a raise. That would be a 5% increase in energon cubes.....I know, that was lame. What can I say, I was a little kid in the 80's.

Does anyone else find themselves just starting at the countdown clock and mentally trying to make it go faster? That's a normal thing to do right????

i hope the grill stays the same size as the concept. i think it looks much nicer the smaller the lower grill is.
