Update: Photos of the 1:3 scale model of the Camaro design study will be removed for the time being. So for now, here’s the Transformers 4 Bumblebee Camaro.
The sixth-generation Camaro isn’t do out until 2015 or so, but a recent photo gallery found online could be hinting at what the 2016 Camaro will look like. Specifically, this small-scale model shown above.
Immediately, we see some design cues in the front clip that could be traced back to the 2014 Chevrolet Impala, and that doesn’t appear to be a bad thing in the least. Meanwhile, the rear fascia takes the four tail lights, and shapes them into a more radical look. The huge air dams on the sides are also a nice touch.
Considering the nature of the model — being that it’s small, has exaggerated features, and no mirrors — it could be nothing more than a sixth-generation Camaro design study. But perhaps a very, very close design study, as the URL to the original source of the photos on Behance.net no longer exists. We’re sure that the 1:3 model has evolved into a more polished look, and could very well be GM design chief Ed Welburn’s “current favorite” design that he hinted to us back in Los Angeles last month.
The 6th Gen Camaro will utilize GM’s favorable Alpha RWD platform, and will be built in Lansing, Michigan alongside the Cadillac ATS and CTS.
