SAWEET!!!!! Damn, theres that stupid front bumper again. Hope its an accessory. To me it doesn't look that aggressive at all. I want to know what dumbass at GM thought that bumper is better than the pre-pro bumper!!! Sorry, getting a bit frusturated.

If this is the final version, then I'd have to say "Not too bad, GM" - they could've deviated from the concept a lot more than this. What is a slightly raised roofline, larger mirrors, different gas cap location and a lightly remolded front fascia when everything else is SOO like the concept? Especially in silver to compare.

And ihc95 is right - you can see that it's the vert's front fascia on the coupe with the small indentions at the sides and jutted out air dam. Doesn't look to shabby from this angle to me although yeah, the original bumper was better. I'll live with this change, though.

If this is the SS it's not showing any difference than all the other cars we
have seen!! The top dog should be more powerful looking (Bigger tires,stripes
ect!!!) That's telling me that the SS will be the lower model than the Z/28
and that sucks!! Well I guess as long as we get 500+ horse I won't complain (too much) Anyone else feeling the same??!!

I saw those last night - that car looks good! These are some nice pictures for sure.

I've never been a fan of the gold bowties, mine will be gone shortly after delivery just like all of my pickups

The GM chiclet is a lil weird to me, but if the worst thing I notice is reverse lights and chiclets then thats a damn good thing...good job GM

I kinda like the bow tie front and back....the badging for the SS is not to flashy which is great...However, noooooottttt a huge fan of the reverse lights, then again I dont really have a better idea of where to place them. I notice the XM ant. is also not painted with the body color, I hope this is because it is pre-pro, I know there was some gripe about this issue on other vehicles, not to mention I am a sirius man and I need a damn merger.....all in all its has come along nicely.

Nice spoiler too. I hope the aftermarket makes an even taller, more pronounced lip like that as a throwback to the 69's.

HEY!!! I'M the dumbass at GM that thought the SS bumper is better than the base bumper!!! (Well me and all the people that actually make the decisions.) It's practically the same except it's got a nice airdam instead of an overbite and the grill and lower lights are set wider creating the side bulges.

Now, this just begs the question... Where would be the best place to paint CAMARO across the back in big, gloss black, block letters. I already know where the racing stripes will go - right where they were on bumblebee in the first movie.

this is the final version guys.... it cant possibly be a whole lot different from these pictures were seeing. Overall I would say a decent job on part of GM on this car in terms of outside looks. The interior remains yet to be seen as im sure the undre the hood this thing is gunna be packin some good stuff.

I'm in love. Plain in simple.

Ok. I feel stupid asking this....but where is this GM badge that you all keep talking about? I've looked (and drooled) at this picture over and over and I'm not seeing anything on the front fender.

My only complaint with the new bumber is that the photos of the converible seems to show the grille is protruding out from the opening like it's stuck on the outside of the car, while the preproduction versions have always had the grille on the bottom inset like on the concept.

I can't tell because the frille is in a shadow on this picture, so I can't say if thie silver one is good or bad.

It is confirmed as SS. I'm wondering if the taillights have the same afterburner effect that the concept has. The little GM "mark of excellence" badge, refered to as "the chicklet" on here is just behind the front tire on the fender.
