Production Camaro *Update-2*

Recommended Posts

Posted Image

Just for refernce: Orginal that every one's seen like 10,000 times

Changes:

-Realistic headlights & fog lights

-Relocated turning signals a bit (solstice/sky style side signals & inner grille lights)

-removed intake

-toned down wheel archs and what ever that egde near the c pillar

-smaller wheels (I hope it's not the ones I used and something unique)

-Larger side mirror

-Realisticly sized side mirror

-mesh lower grill simular to what the impala has

-embelms

-Door handle

The door might need some tweeking too, but I was trying to keep most of it's edge.

Sorry dude but you tonned it down way too much.

The headlights were realistic on the concept, and I'm not a fan of the relocated turn signal. The rear quarter is very bland and generic without the trademark kickup over the rear fender.

Still looks great and will probably be accurate. Might want to make the kickup a little more pronounced, though...

Upsize the mirrors a little bit more, use wheels with trimmer spokes, and maybe use a less coarse grille insert.

That looks bubbly and I won't put money down if it looks like this.

Take notes, GM.

If I'm not mistaken, the concept had LED headlights, but I do think Projector HIDs as Toni pointed out might be possible, I'm just looking for a good source pic.

Well here's an update taking in everyone's suggestions.

-Larger mirror

-Round Headlights

-Differnt wheels (Colorado SS concept)

-Brought back the rear quarter "hump" or whatever it's called & orginal lower grill

I would say that's realistic, except I think the production version will be narrower. The concept was wider than most SUVs.

If I'm correct the production version(if produced) won't be changed except for door handles and maybe different mirrors/wheels.

Glad you put those solstice/sky turn signals in...it might prove to be fruitful in about a year...

If it's an SS, bigger wheels please.

Those wheels looks like at most an optioned out base.

For the headlights, have you tried the Vectra? That's where I got it for my Calibra.

The fender openings should be retained. The tires look too puffy for such big wheels. Other than that, it looks good and probably close to what we can expect.

Cool... looks better but I'm still not liking the rims. Sorry. I'm very picky I guess. :wink:

The SS will have significantly larger rims than that. (I'm thinking most likely 18/19, but maybe 19/20)

I like the mirrors a lot more though. However, if the headlights are like that (which, unfortunately, they probably will be) I'll be the first to be looking for after market ones..

Yes, indeed it is.. If they make it more narrow, it'll look too tall.

Just noticed this: the foglamps are incorrectly mounted? The passenger's side is recessed and the driver's almost flush?

So it IS a pre-production build :P

I read that the Camaro wasnt designed to be retro but to just pick up styling ques from a 69 Camaro............but would'nt that be the same thing? :huh:
