My 2 cents as an insider - I would guess it has a very good chance of looking a lot like it does in concept. I say this because: (and definately not because I actually know..)
> It's been through the studios- (although I don't know much about the styling status - I'm an engine guy these days - but have worked with the studios before).
> Bringing back the Camaro is not something GM just dreamed up a few weeks before its unveiling !!
> It appears that a lot of work was put in up front as evidenced by the appearance deemed by many as "production like" - not wild and crazy like the majority of concepts.
> Lots of styling sketches
> Beautifully rendered virtual photos - which means it exists entirely in math data - a time consuming and much needed item to go to production.
> If the rumors regarding an '09 intro are true - there's NO WAY they're gonna make it if they have to restyle the thing first.
This concept car certainly does not have the signature of a skunkswork type of project !!
The engineers will likely tear the interior to shreds because nothing
ever packages straight out of the studio (radios, ductwork, airbags, etc) - so don't fall in love with the interior - not yet anyways.
As an engine guy I have heard - um - rumors - regarding plans for powertrains. All I can really say is that they want to keep the performance heritage alive !!! Does everyone realize that GM has in production today (ie: Z06 Corvette) a motor that would make a meaningful ZL-1 (V8, aluminum, 427 cu-in) return possible ? Would that be awesome or what ? (oh damn - I just soiled my pants - again
Finally - I must echo (and confirm) the company headline: This car is still stuck in the planning stages and production approval is not gauranteed !! (so I can only share my observations based on public info...)
