Kris Horton, working with Joel Rosen and Larry Jaworske, penned the prototype Baldwin-Motion SuperCoupe design, and he’s been feverishly working on concepts for a limited-production Phase IV version of the next generation Camaro. Fresh from winning GM's Best Design Award at SEMA for the SuperCoupe, Horton is one of the hottest young automotive designers around.

"When Chevrolet builds the next generation Camaro, Baldwin-Motion will be ready with a Phase IV version available from select Chevrolet dealers. In the tradition of the original Baldwin-Motion Camaros, the Phase IV Camaro will be quicker, faster and turn more heads than any new musclecar from Motown. Like the SuperCoupe, I'll sign each one," said Joel 'Mr. Motion' Rosen.

Notice the use of the word WHEN not IF.

Great MT cover..I haven't seen that yet.

I just hope GM follows through and sweats the details and builds something that will be a bonafide HIT!!!

I noticed this on their site:

GM's Director Of Design, Tom Peters, who owns a 1969 Camaro powered by a ZL-1 engine, truly defined what a modern day production musclecar should look and run like. The fully functioning Camaro concept, built on an 112-inch wheelbase GTO platform, is powered by a 400-hp LS2 6.0 small-block hooked up to a six-speed transmission. Like the Baldwin-Motion 540 Camaro SuperCoupe, it has 14-inch disc brakes all around.

Does that mean the concept is on the current GTO platform, or are they assuming the next-gen GTO will be on the same platform?

My dad works at the Wilmington plant where the solstice and sky are being produced and a few weeks ago Bob Lutz visited the plant. Evidently he told some people that the camaro is coming to production but GM is not sure what plant yet. Only time will tell. Sooner rather than later! :P:lol:

The concept is not on the GTO platform, it is a one-off made from several existing platforms.

If he was at Wilmington talking about the Camaro coming, there should be absolutely no doubt in your dads mind that the Camaro is going to be produced at that plant.

Well that wasn't his purpose for being there. He was there to talk about the solstice and Sky and I guess that came up in conversation. Lets put it this way, the rumor of the Camaro coming to Wilmington has been swirling around awhile , at least that has been the rumor among the employees.

I hope it is Wilmington... that's close enough for me to go watch my future Camaro being built. :wub:

You'd think so... since that's where my baby will be made sometime this year (SKY) you'd think I could take the short hour or so drive down there and see the plant in operation. But NO... they aren't allowing tours at this time and don't see it in the forseeable future :angry:

Is Wilmington flexible enough to build FWD and RWD at the same time. I think they will dedicate one plant solely for production of the their upcoming RWD cars that will share a platform with the Camaro. My guess is Spring Hill since the Ion will die next year and they will have plenty of time to retool it for RWD.
