Re: 2009 Chevy Camaro concept

looks like GM made R&T take it down. It was still working when I posted it on Team Chevelle. As of right now there was still a picture of it in a thread in Team Chevelle's Bench Racing section.

Thumbs down Re: 2009 Chevy Camaro concept

In my opinion i don't care for the looks of that concept Camaro..at least on the stangs, they have the old style 64 1/2-and on look, but these new Camaros dont even come close to the first Gens...not even a little bit...just my .02.. .

Re: 2009 Chevy Camaro concept

In my opinion, I think it looks much better than the clay model. I am reasonably happy with the lines.

I do think that the grille is weak. Particularly (and I know I'll get heat for this) next to that grille on the new Challenger.

I think it is a good attempt at a new Camaro with retro traces, but clearly not what I would call a retro car. I know GM does not wish to put all of the car's eggs in the retro basket, and I can respect that. But the grille just does not do it for me. I need a little more first gen there.

Just one Camaro lover's opinion. If you showed me that car and said it was an unnamed concept, I would say I liked it. I am just not sure about it as the Camaro. It's kind of like when a band you really like gets back together and makes a song. Oftentimes, it is pretty dang good with respect to 90% of songs out there, but NOT as good compared only to the bands old songs.

Re: 2009 Chevy Camaro concept

Where's the I hope so option? So I didn't vote. Overall I like the new Camaro. There's definitely some things I would like to see changed, but I still hope the bring the Camaro back.

Thumbs down Re: 2009 Chevy Camaro concept

No I don't think they'll make this car, but because of the crisis that GM is in right now, not because of the design.

As far as the design goes, if I want ugly I'll buy an Aztek. GM has got to break away from the Aztek influence on most of their vehicles before I'd buy another one. Nothing wrong with a new body style, but if they are trying to capture the excitement of the first gen body style then they've failed again. This car does not resemble or capture the feel of a first gen car. They'll have to be free to start from scratch. Apparently GM stylists aren't free to express themselves, instead it appears they have one hand held to the current styling fire.

Ford got it right, Chrylser got it right with their concept of the Challenger RT, why can't Chevrolet?

Re: 2009 Chevy Camaro concept

I like it. I do agree the grill could be changed a little more to reflect a 1st gen better if that's the route they were trying to go (which I think is obvious). I think if they increased the grill size vertically it would look a little better.

2009 is a LONG ways away. By then Mustangs and Challengers will be selling like hotcakes.

Re: 2009 Chevy Camaro concept

make then ose a little less pointy, and the rear half less boxy- and it might be kind of cool.
the roof line seems a bit on the low side compared to the other lines of the car, as well. and the wheels are painfully generic.
all in all, not too bad- better than the clay model pics, to be sure.
make the base engine the I6 out of the trailblazer, with the LS2 as a option- and the LS7 as the ultimate option- but keep the price point nice and low- and just watch them FLY out of the showroom.

now, where's Infamous? I'm sure he has something to say about it...

Re: 2009 Chevy Camaro concept

Here is a video of it that still works as of 8:30 EST.

I still like it. Grill is a little pointy and rough, but this is the CONCEPT! GM will refine it more for production.

Re: 2009 Chevy Camaro concept

Thats what I'm talkin about! Awesome. Like the fact that you lost the ram air duct at the front. Much cleaner look. Gotta love Hugger Orange! Use some retro style Z emblems on the front fender to set things off. Nice work!

Re: 2009 Chevy Camaro concept

Thanks, Bob

I can't take the credit,though. I found it on another Camaro board, but really like the styling.

Cheers,
Mike

Re: 2009 Chevy Camaro concept

Iíll agree that this RS version is much more palatable, but something in the body line on the fenders still looks too blocky for me. The fender design needs to be a little more retro for my taste, and maybe reduce the relief between the nose and the grille at the corners...
