pink, you might be. I order I love the car and I understand all the safety regs, legal regs, and cost considerations, that led to the changes. But the Concept was amazing!!!!

To be honest, I think the side view is the production camaro's worse view point (and it still looks good). Still very happy with the car but the concept was sick!

I think GM should be congratulated for coming out with a production car that is so close to it's original concept. If you watch the NBC special "Saving GM" you will see some of the reasons why the production version could not have the same roof line as the concept.

I spew more tough love on GM then anyone else and I can tell you that I am incredibly impressed how they were able to stay true to the original concept. If only they had dumped that mail slot.......

IMO, althought the concept was nice, we were fortunate to have the soon-to-be production model as close as it is. I have not done a lot of research on this, but I can think of quite a few concept cars, where the production model looked absolutely nothing like the concept.

That being said... think of the concept as "permission to let the designers do whatever they want".

First thing I noticed is the doors. I'm glad they shortened them. Otherwise we would have another version of the --mid to late 70's Camaro & Firebird-- 150 lb. sagging doors.

Second... talk about blind spots. Not to mention, I'm 6'4", doesnt look like I could even sit in the concept.

And last but not least... the production model just looks "less fragile" then the concept.

Nope. Especially in the side view. As someone else said, the concept's front is entirely too long and thin when they're put side my side like that.

I haven't seen the production intent version in person yet, but since seeing photos of it the concept looks far too exagerated to me. GM did a good job maintaining its spirit while massaging it to real world proportions. I do wish the roof were an inch or so shorter but what can ya do?

Nope, I would take the production car over the Concept in a second (if I had the choice). The prodution car just looks meaner, I dont know why though, it just does.

Nope I down right hated the concept version so much. I looked forward to them bringing the Camaro back for so long but when I seen the concept version I had decided not to buy it because I hated the look and dimensions. The production version is 1,000% better imo.

Wow! (this isn't meant negatively at all). That's the first time I've ever heard that!




The concept kinda looks stretched out of proportion in the OP's post....fwiw, here's one of my own:


So...which one's which?

I agree with eltati...the concept was much better than final product. Typical crap automakers have been doing for years....put out a gorgeous concept to get people's interest then cut costs and design for the masses.

So you wouldn't mind paying $50,000(wishful) - 2,000,000 (not kidding) dollars for a concept replica that doesn't meet any saftey/etc standards?


EDIT: don't take that offensively...I'm only joking around.
