2015 Chevy Camaro Rendered… Again29
Now before you pick up your pitchforks and throw them at the author in the comments section, please allow me the opportunity to explain that this is just a rendering: one person’s guess (speculation, opinion, or prediction) of how the next-generation Chevy Camaro might look. It’s not an official release from GM or Chevy, it’s not a concept or a design study, and the only reason we’re publishing it here is to inspire discussion, and to start a conversation about what is most definitely a hotly-anticipated vehicle. To clarify, the discussion we’re looking to spur is constructive and informative (not aggressive and combative). Now that that’s out of the way, let’s move on to this here rendering of the 2015 Camaro.
The design appears to be more compact and progressive than the current fifth-gen, while keeping lines and other styling cues that are distinctly Camaro. The maw is aggressive and screams Chevrolet, the hood has a power dome-like bulge, the wheel arches are decidedly flared, and the side styling is expressive, to say the least. We could, however, do without the retro headlight covers, or the Mustang Laguna Seca-like wheel design.
So, what do you think about this here rendering? Is it along the lines of what you’d like to see for the sixth-generation 2015 (or 2016) Camaro, or not at all?

If you could make headlamps like that for real, that would be cool. I do like it
LED lights can make those head lamps possible very easily.
ya I seem to like it too
Yes, I like it! 🙂
Its a good looking car, but its too similar to the current car to be considered for the Next Generation.
Personally, I love how the car looks now, and I wish I could pick up the ZL1 right now, but being 21 and in school, that’s not happening.
I just hope they don’t ruin the car with whatever design they pick for the next gen.
About as close of a guess as many Motor Tend and Car and Driver new Corvette guesses over the years.
People doing guesses need to think a little more global. I would recommend that they look to the Corvette for inspiration. Like the C6 did. Might even look to the Impala too and it more sculpted body.
The new car will have as much of a wow factor as the new C7 has had. It will look like a Camaro but not as retro as the last.
I mostly like it-I love my ZL! but this is more slippery. With more HP, I would buy it.
Love the headlights! They make the front end look both cool and dressed up. Not sure about the side, not bad. Of course, the biggest factor for the real car will be taking as much weight out as possible.
I prefer the halo lights on the current camaro. And the wheels seem to be from the C7 corvette
I just think it looks to much like the current model, but it does look nice. I like the gen-5 model no doubt, but I like to see something different especially on the new alpha based platform. I do think it can draw some inspiration from Corvette, but from an Impala is a little too much its not going to be a chevy cruse but its going to be a pony car what use to be pony car. I remember reading an article about them making the new Camaro and how it was going to kind of difficult (paraphrasing) just in decision of going retro (1st or 2nd gen) or something more modern since it was a successful car. Since weight was the only necessarily downgrade about this Camaro, I think they have a good chance of repeating the success.. Look at the 1LE, ZL1, and the Z/28.
I love the current generation camaro but i do agree it needs to be more different. GM design is on a roll right now so you can be assured its gonna look fantastic whenever it does come out. Obviously the switch to the lighter alpha platform is gonna be the biggest thing cause its gonna shed. 3 to 4 hundred pounds and yield tremendous performance gains. Alpha is arguably the best rear wheel drive platform in the world right now especially considering price and scalability. My next gm car will def be alpha based!
Looks great, those head lights are a perfect RS treatment, to go along with the halo design for other models! Just get the weight down please.
I like it. Another Hot Wheels car becomes a reality kind of look. And it also has more side window glass area too.
I’ve seen it already but I still love it. It was a rendering done in the July 2012 issue of Camaro Performers magazine. The artist who rendered it was Ben Hermance.
The article shows alot more the car, including what the rear would look like and gives a little on the thought process of the artist.
I expect the next model to use a smaller set of wheels. GM has been going to a smaller wheel to save weight and un-sprung weight for handling.
We have seen the weight savings already in the Alpha and the CTS. Also the Camaro people went to a smaller but wider tire combo in the Z/28 for better handling.
The styling will reflect a better fit for the smaller diameter wheels. The present car with the thick side almost needs the larger wheels to make it look like the wheels are the proper size but with handling and weight bigger is still not better.
I would hate to see the weight of the 21″ Hot Wheels rims let alone with the tire on them.
Beautiful. Absolutely great. I’d love to see a little more 130R to help make it looks a little smaller… but just a little tiny bit. This on a nice alpha chassis, and sold as a midsize pony car. I’d put money done for this beauty. Also, headlights are a little 50/50 for me.
I like this Camaro rendering. Yes, no hidden lights would be better! How about making this (smaller?) 2 door a TRUE hardtop??
No B-pillar. Heck, Mercedes can build one, why not Chevy, for Pete’s sake?! Too expensive to meet rollover standards? Oh please!
What are the power plants going to be?
Probably an Obama 4 cylinder. CAFE standards will kill all V8s and most V6s shortly.
Oh be quiet with that politically driven “the sky is falling” crap. Manufacturers often revert to smaller engines as a stop-gap measure until technology catches up to make V8s and V6s more economical. This happened in the 1970s but was soon addressed. Speaking authoritatively without facts or purpose does not make you sound intelligent. It makes you sound like Cliff The Mail Man from Cheers. Demanding better fuel economy helps all of us in the long run.
It’s different than the disasters caused in the 70s (Hmm, Jimmy Carter was president). Obama/his Democrat buddies set CAFE way to high for no reason other than to appease the Eco-freaks. You are basically saying politics don’t matter- you are quite wrong. Sure, high CAFE standards are great for YOU, IF YOU WANT A PRIUS. I’d prefer the government not dictate what I want to drive. But, there are more of you than me. Obama’s CAFE will kill the Pony cars and cars like 300/Charger-that’s reality. I guess you are thrilled.
Not Only that, it will kill SUV’s and trucks as a whole and it makes me sick.
fuck the two headed one party system for real.
I like the front end the cabin and roof line seam out of proportion and the rear i really cant tell, but it is not a bad looking car just not sweet.
not bad for a refresh.
It looks the size of a 2001 Celica. If they are going to make it into a Camaro II, like the Mustang II they should just stop with this generation as the last real Camaro. Will it have a 4 cylinder? Get real. Look, the reality is Obama will make pony cars extinct with the CAFE standards kicking in around 2015. I think it’s something stupid like 50 MPG. All cars we know today with V8s & V6s will die. Thank the idiots that voted for Obama. Let the Camaro die with dignity.
Glad I Didn’t vote for either political party last year, they both make me sick.
Would that be the same as throwing your vote away? Nobody else was really in the game. But this isn’t a political site anyway, even though some of us like to take things that direction once and a while.
A very nice rendering, but it looks to similar to the current car. almost like a mid cycle refresh of what could of been..
