Don't mind the front end interior looks the same and the well the back end looks like it came off the last gen prelude. Did honda have some tail lights for sale cheap? The jag looks like a cross between a GTR and a Miata. I will keep my 2012 SS.

If it does turn out to be the euro version after all then that is some very clever marketing strategy going on indeed.

I've seen similar tactics used before, especially in this day and age of social media.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if that's what is going on here...after all, look at the buzz it's created for tomorrow...

I would also refer everybody to a post made by a person that appears to be 'in the know' that said 'be open to different lights for different models'...

I don't know why everybody is getting bend out of shape.
The Camaro is still a very beautiful car and no matter what, some people will like the 2014 better than the 2010.
I am not a big fan of the iPhone5 but love the 4S and hated the iPhone 4
I still buy Apple products and think people who love GM still will buy the Camaro!!!!!

WTF is that? Who is on GM's style team... ?? I'm sorry but with the changes they made I feel like they didn't even consider what most camaro owners want! The thin that seperates the American muscle cars from the rest of the world is that they look down right tough and mean... These new changes make it look sissified!! Might as well start rounding all the edges and come out with a new muscle Prius or something!

I don't see this as being a marketing ploy. Why would they show a car they didn't think would be well received on national television. The hundreds of Michael and Kelly fans that aren't Camaro enthusiasts would just write off the Camaro and never give it a second thought. Don't have a clue why they released it this way and I hope they at least recognize what happened today as a mistake.

I can't say I hate it, but I'm definitely not feeling it. I definitely prefer the more aggressive look of the current models. Glad I've got one!

GM killed off the Camaro in 2002. They just killed it off again IMO. So much for "legends never die"

They know their target market, and they know that their target market isn't going to be watching that show.

They also know somebody however will get hold of it, post it on the Internet and then it will blow up - creating a huge buzz in time for the actual reveal.

Similar to viral marketing - get everybody talking about it...
