I believe the change that should be done is to make the line pattern match. it just doesn't match eachother.

this thing still looks like an iver and we really haven't seen a completely done ss...that front bumper makes the ss look incomplete...i can gaurantee reviewers will question why they changed the front bumper and that its less attractive

Is it possible that there is a Base V6 front fascia, an RS fascia, a Base SS fascia, and an RS/SS fascia?

Maybe this is just the Base SS fascia and the RS/SS hasn't been seen yet.

Well, GM hasn't started building the cars yet and there is still time for them to use the V6 bumper on all the models and ditch the SS bumper, or at least give people the option to choose or pre-order one bumper or the other for the V8/SS/RS model.. During extreme closeups it looks alright, but the fact that we are here trying to convince ourselves that it looks good is to me not a good sign. The problem we all face is that the V6 bumper looks so very close to the concept and all those pictures taken at the reveals look great.So it is very hard to accept these changes as looking equal or better for many of us. I do wish GM would come out with more pictures of the SS bumper all cleaned up and in SS/RS form in all different angles but they haven't yet. This makes me think they are still contemplating whether or not to use it at all.. There is still enough time to clean the slate and switch the bumper all around to the concepts closest lookalike which is the V6 bumper or like I said earlier, to allow for people to order whichever they wanted during pre-order for the V8 models.. I love looking at pictures of the concept all thru production so here are some good ones. To me the only differences I wish the V8 had, was simply adding the slot on the hood and use the V6 bumper in the pics below. That would make it look almost exactly like the concept and still differentiate the V8 model with the V6..

I will not buy one...forget it. Those huge LEFT HAND DRIVE stickers ruin the entire car for me! Guess I need to head over to the Ford Store and get a Mustang. How could they do that to what was a beautiful design?

What are you talking about?? The left and right lane turn signals?? To me those are perfect and you want people to know when you are turning left and right.. The V6.RS package and all the professional pictures taken of the car look great. I am very happy to see them and I know GM did an excellent job keeping as true to the concept as possible. All of the changes had to be made because of Government regulations. The car is much safer now than it ever could be keeping it a clone of the concept.. be glad there are some changes...I'm getting a V8 regardless of the bumper unless after I see both in person I end up staring at the V6 a whole lot more...However I really want 422HP or more at my command with monster torque and better handling.. I really want to like the SS bumper as much as the V6, but most of the time when I see a picture of it, I simply don't.. However some closeups of it make it look good, others don't in comparison.. I'll just have to wait and see it in person before making a final decision.. But don't knock off the car simply because of one thing toesuf94.. and you described the camaro in 1 word in the thread below as mesmerizing....

i can't wait to see a complete one we haven't seen a production ss yet...

i wouldn't mind seeing the vert with the top down as well

and even though a lot of us may prefer the v6 bumper from the pics we saw

the ss bumper will probably exist as half the board likes that one as well...just make it easily interchangeable if you don't like it when you see it in person or make it an option ( i don't know if that would be complicated for them)

In the end its way better than the mustang no matter what front fascia it has...

Would it be possible to take the Sat antenna and put it in the little spoiler on the trunk? I'm just wondering.

P.S. - The more I think about it, the more I think that they cant possibly put the third brake light there. I think there are laws preventing them from putting anything in front of it (like the onstar fin) and I can't see them moving the fin anywhere else. I expect they just haven't gotten a spoiler made yet with the light in it.

Ok I'll answer my own question now that I've thought about it for a bit. I guess putting it in that spoiler would be a bad idea specially if you get rearended. Ok how bout the rearview mirror I'm sure that antenna could make it through glass.

maybe it's the color or the angle of the pics but I am not that crazy about the way the cabriolet looks maybe because it's the SS model? If so then i would go with RS Cabriolet

Looks good, but I hate that the AM/FM antenna is visible. I think it detracts from the looks IMO. If they hide the antenna it would be perfect.
