nice find 454lsxss. I hadn't seen that one yet.

As for dragon quoting killer. I think I might get SHORUKN for my license plate.

Wow looks very nice! But there's still one thing I would change. At first the rearlights, double red from the concept looked quiet better than this. And I miss the spoiler!
But all in all the Camaro was and is a beauty and a proof of the american arts of design!

I’m just not digging that front fascia.

Yea right, well when I hear it from GMs mouth directly..then and only then will I believe it. Z28 IS camaro...if they dont have it...oh well, but I certainly wont take the word from any website or magazine.

This car...in the words of Dave Chapelle is "THE MOST BALLER S--- EVER!!!"

What's wrong with the rest of the mods?..minus the spoiler, I think it looks very awesome.
I can't wait to see the official RS trim.

And I didn't pick up on how we know this is really an "SS"..can anyone inform me plz?
I was too perturbed by "octane_n_veins" posts, to want to keep going back a page. (sorry, just being honest)

too bad you can't weave it into the bottom grille a certain way. (metal wiring, on the left or right side). that's gonna leave a weird mark on the front bumper to have a License plate indentation.

Damn, here in Poland we can get up to 5-letter word on plate.

HADKN maybe? HADOU?

Because SHRKN doesn't deliver.

I think the front end looks great. Not excited about the plate bracket. Hopefully it will only have the knock outs so it looks smooth for no front plate states. The brakes are Brembos (this may have been pointed out already) on the front. Anybody have thoughts on Brembos definitely coming on the SS? It looks like they will. Very Cool.

I was hoping for projectors for the headlights, but at least they look good. I think I will be looking to upgrade the lights if they don't offer HIDs. Overall, I am happy with it.

Those of you who say you don't like the upper grille,between the headlights, or that it looks cheap, do you not realize that this is the same style grille from the concept?

i still don't think i like the lowergrille the upper grille is perfectly fine i just want it in silver like the concept with the gold bowtie and the halo's and i think i'd prefer the lower grille more like the concept...but again as long as i can just switch the grille on my own i'll be happy

This Camaro looks great. Can you even begin to imagine what the top level Camaro is going to look like? Freakin' sweet! Oh, I'm glad Chevy did it right with the fog light, unlike Ford on their Mustangs. Come on, fog lights are not supposed to be at the same level as the original head lights.

But now we get close to the unveiling and we see changes that are cosmetic and completely arbitrary looking and I can tell that I'm not the only one here who feels a bit cheated. Maybe too many people tried too hard to sell us the concept and how much this would be like that?

I'm not real happy about the way it's coming along. I don't know if the disciples were shown some of these changes and had no opinions. I'm hoping these leaks are them "testing the water" to see reaction. If so then I suggest people who have been fawning over this take off your "camaro" colored glasses and look at it objectively. If this were the new Mustang would you be so in LOVE with that lower fascia? I hope not. It looks so 80's car to me. That thing really detracts from the entire car.

It's like someone having a brand new car and someone bashes the door in and never gets it fixed sort of pitiful looking.

Maybe someone less bitter can explain this better than me.
your last 3 posts before this have been entirely on point...it does feel like many on this site are drinking the kool-aid and don't want to criticize it...criticizing is good...it helps the final product become a better product...your not the only one who feels like this....

and the majority of people who will buy a camaro will not be camaro enthusiasts....many of them too will feel like its not quite like the concept and say what happened to bumblebee...

but at the same time there is some changes we can do in the aftermarket to make it look more like the concept like a new rear bumper to get rid of that bump...i know the halo's will be an option and the lower front fascia will probably be interchangeable....all is not lost and a few minor tweaks will have it looking concept like...

afterburners....oh a man can dream right???

Blacked out bow-tie...?

Not that I wouldn't love a blacked out bow-tie but I don't think it's blacked out in this pic. Instead, I think it's covered with electrical tape, or, some other black tape.

Just zoom in on the pic.

Don't get me wrong, I think this car is bad a$$!
