I just want a steering wheel that looks like that (guess it'll be a bit fatter because of airbag), those two big round dials in front of the driver and that lovely shifter. Other then that I'm pretty open for change.

Watch it become a retro pack of some sort or be included in a package deal

Well I own a 1970 Cutlass with the exact same style GM seatbelts (I even own a belt for my pants that looks like that too) and I personally haven't had much of a problem with them in the heat. I think if they did go with seatbelt buckles that looked like the concept they could possibly do it with a finish that trapped and radiated less heat. I like the style, but having hot metal in the car is a bit of a problem.

im not really a huge fan of the 2 large gauges, im not too fond of the "cone" shape they have, i would prefer standard flat ones

^Each one to his own. Actually remembered one thing I really want them to keep more then anything. The fact that the panels sorta folds in and does not connecto to the floor via a middle console a la say the Malibu. I have that middle console on my Saab and I hate it. At least it's decently smooth, unlike say the horridness that is Ford Focus.

I'd like to keep the ambient lighting. While showcar exteriors can be brought out close in production the interiors almost never do. Sad really.

the original silver coupe does not have an interior e-brake and hood release... there are alot of things that will not be included in the production car, but they look really cool in the concepts.

Wow. The gap is completely invisible when the door is closed. That's what I call precision.

Thats because there is no gap because there is no glass.

If there is no glass in back does that mean that the rear window rolls down?

That back seat is going to suck. Passengers will have to remove their legs to get back there.

The center mirror will get changed.

Cup holders are an easy fix. They'll just put a couple holes in the center console.

The radio and AC controls will change, even though I like them as they are.

The screen in the dash that is color-matched with the hugger orange will likely change. I hope it's color-matched with the outside of the car, but it might not look anything like it looks now anyway. I wonder what that screen does. Is it a diagnostic computer like in the dash of the Cobalt?

The seatbelt button will probably stick up more. I hope they keep the GM buckles.

The outside mirrors have already shown changes in the prototype spy photos, so I'm expecting to see the spy shot mirrors.

Lastly, the windows will have glass and a B-pillar.

That's all I noticed.

I don't like the way the center console goes all the way to the back seats, I don't believe that it will stay that way.

Not Necessarily. Those who've been in the concept say it's surprisingly roomy. As much as a coupe can be, I suppose. The front seat mounts are on the side of the center console, and the 'side' of the car; this opens up lots of room on te floor for people's feet. And these are folks who come from all different eras of Camaro - and they all say the same thing, the back seat isn't exactly the place you'd like to be planted for 8 hours - but it's comfortable none the less.

I haven't seen much mention of it in this thread, but I'm not at all a fan of the gauges in the center console forward of the shifter. They have a novel look, but it's highly impractical while driving to look down into the floor of the car to see how hot your car is running, and they take up room that could be better spent on storage or cupholders. I love the main gauges for the tach and speedo, and I hope that the basic style of them is maintained, but the ancillary gauges need to incorporated into them or around them somehow.

I love the seatbelt buckles...they give me fond memories of the "Mark of Excellence" seatbelts in GMs I grew up in. But maybe they could use some plastic trim to hold onto to keep you from burning your hands on them on hot summer days.

Check out the Chevy Nation site:
In regards to the Interior in an interview with Micah Jones:

Quote:
How much do you think the production car will vary from the initial designs?

Very Little.

I bet that feels good.

Yeah, it does. Definitely.
Everything about this car needs to be 'different'. Including the interior - this isn't just a single car's ressurection, folks. This is a piece of GM's turnaround as a whole. And especially being a high profile car that it is, It must make a statement, it must be radical. It must be Camaro.

I'm not discounting all of the "this has to go" or "this has to change" in this thread - but would a cool car look like it's entire interior was spawned from a parts bin?

So don't look for too many changes in the interior. Instead look forward to seeing that interior with minor 'fixes' in your production model car .

Agreed!! Sure there are some minor little tweaks that I'd like to see, but overall I'm very satisfied with what we've seen so far and what we think the final product will look like.

Funny story...

My dad just got his c6 Vette, it has the push button start, well, my brother and the dealer took it to get gas. One little problem, they didn't have the key, they got to the gas station just fine, but when they closed the doors, they were locked out. They had to call and have someone bring the key. So sadly, you can take it and get your self locked out of your car.
