We’ve already seen a handful of renderings of General Motors’ upcoming Alpha-based Mustang fighter, the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro. So far, unofficial concept drawings have shown a recognizable front fascia and body shape, but with modern contemporary design cues and sleek, sharp lines. This latest rendering cooked up by CarScoops is no exception, and is also one of the best new Camaro designs we’ve seen to date.
The artist’s inspiration for the design was taken from the razor sharp styling of the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The front end follows Chevy’s current design language, wearing a two-tier grille with a larger lower section. Slim headlights are flanked by sculpted “C7-like” front fenders, complimented by a sharply styled, dynamic hood. Looking at the side reveals long swooping body lines, “pinched” rear haunches and the Camaro’s signature side vents. The rear of the car is not shown, but the designer says “the taillights sit flush under the crisp-edged shoulder-line, while also forming the top-edge of the shapely trunk lid.”
We could easily see the 2016 Camaro employing the futuristic, sharp design language depicted in this rendering. It is a good step forward from the current design, but remains instantly recognizable as a Camaro. The next-generation of Chevy’s pony car should arrive in time for the 2016 model year, meaning a debut at next year’s North American International Auto Show is in the realm of possibility. Until that time comes, bring on the renderings.
