Found these over at Z28.com from our friend Brangeta. Apparently, he found them posted by a guy over on Flicker....a photo hosting site.

Ya'll enjoy!!!

Oh, and it looks like Shunt's still in the trunk.

Even in beat-up, v6 pre-po form the camaro looks soooooo much better than the challenger. the angle where the reat-most pillar meets the roofline and the length of the trunk... well i guess the rear portion in whole of the challenger just looks, wrong. i do like the front end though; it has a classy "i'm a having mid-life crisis" look to it, but it's very passive-aggressive... doesn't look like it's ready for a fight like the f-body is. I can't wait to see the maro w/ full badging; it's going to be spectacular!!! The f-bod is signifgantly shorter too... the challenger looks like a sedan dodge decided to turn into a coupe... oh yea, that's what it is. I hate to sound so harsh in regards to our mopar counter-part but wow, seeing them side-byside confirms we've got if nothing else the better looking car!

I have to say I like the way both of these cars look. The Camaro concept that I saw near the Challenger in person looked better...sleaker.. and had more class.. However that concept was featured in a major motion picture which made it look amazing.. Overall, what I don't like about the pre-pro camaro are the side-mirrors.. Even if they were impractical, I would still prefer sleaker looking mirrors in the camaro. The B-pillar looks fine and I'm already used to seeing it even though it is different than the concept.. The camaro looks nice and I know the final product will look even better once the pre-pro headlights are replaced and we see the Chevy badge on the grill...Speaking of grills, I do hope I can order the Bumblebee/Concept grill the day I pre-order the car along with replacement side mirrors... Please make it possible GM. Thanks...

Lower stance, about 5 inches lower and about 80% as wide. I'm liking it.

Although I haven't driven the new Challenger, I bet the interior is a sea of plastic like other Mopars of late. I do believe that Mopar was closer on design when it comes to the muscle car era, but I'm way too much of a Camaro fanatic to give the car justice. As long as we can blow them away on the street, I'll be able to sleep soundly. If not, I won't stop modding until I can take out any and all muscle retro's.

I'm not sure whether that makes the Camaro look big... or the Challenger, small...

I was about to say the same thing. Looks like the Camaro is wider than the Challenger

Wish there was a shot where I could see the length comparison, but just can't tell from these.

Shunt was getting a little more aggressive in the trunk so they had to upgrade the rope

The Challenger looks huge with the Viper on one side and the Camaro on the other. I think the Challenger is a sharp car but when parked next to the Camaro it is game over, Bowtie 1 Mopar 0.... that is even though this is a V6 Camaro with half the trim missing. Can't wait for the final version...

nice. The Camaro is alot shorter than the challenger - length wise. Only a little shorter in height. On top of that, the Challenger looks really bulky next to the Camaro. And yeah, it looks like a giant next to that Viper.
