My biggest issues:

1. Does not follow the concept body shape (proportions are all different) :upset:
2. Can't stand the SS bumper
3. Not happy that the tail lights do not have the afterburner look
4. Don't understand why it will take 12 months to integrate the HUD into the car?

Nevertheless I still like the car.

Going with:

Must buy a package to get a single option
And potientally, Radio.

The first because it's one of those things I dislike with car companies in general.
The second is potentially since the radio is integrated and there seems to be no way to get aftermarket. Now I love the look of it, but one day that's going to break and you just know that it's gonna be tricky to get it out and replaced.

My votes, in order of severity:

Weight: nearly 4000 lbs for the V8 is simply too much. That's putting it on a diet? How does a small-midsize coupe weigh just about as much as the G8, a full-size family sedan?

Trunk Space: I wasn't expecting much from the trunk space. I understand it is a sporty coupe and actually the trunk space itself looks pretty darn good considering. What does bother me is the same thing that bothers me on my Cobalt coupe: The darn opening is so itty bitty and high up that it makes it nearly impossible to get any large objects in that would otherwise fit.

Fuel economy of the V8: This doesn't mean much to me personally as my commuting habits make MPG all but irrelevant, but I still think they could do better. Again, I think the G8 might even do better, and it is a full-size sedan. Yes it makes less power, but that connection isn't always solid.

Must buy a package: Of course I understand why GM does this (it really is much more profitable) and I know just about everyone else does it to a much greater extent. However, Ford is the major exception and I think that does give the Mustang an advantage. True some options prevent the selection of others, but the ability to mix-and-match options on the Mustang is unparalleled. Now we don't know for sure what will be offered only as part of a package yet, but it sounds like it won't quite match the Mustang. Too bad.

thats would be sick or your driving by and it jumps out in front of you (like in Transformers when Optimus jumps out in front of the S7 guys) and tells you to get out of the car and then it transforms and says get in

If you compare all the body panels between the concept and the (pre-)production cars, almost everything is different.

Contrary to what others said I do not think that it is only the back end and the roof height that are different.

E.g. if you look at the car from the front, the production car's front end looks significantly more narrow and tall while the concept is wide and low.

Another example: The distance from the door to the front wheel arch looks much shorter on the production cars (it may not be shorter in absolute terms but it seems to be compared to other dimensions).

All this together somehow for me makes the difference between a design that immediately fascinates when you see it (concept) and a much more regular, common looking car. Just to avoid any misunderstanding, I still like the production shape but it's just missing that little extra 'something.
