New spy photos have surfaced showing a group of sixth-generation Camaro prototypes undergoing pre-production testing in Michigan, not far from General Motors’ Milford Proving Ground. The new Camaro was spied for the first time last month and ever since, the rumor mill has been in overdrive in regards to the car’s powertrain, styling and chassis.
From the last photo set of the car and a rumor we heard in March, we were able to deduct that the sixth-generation Camaro’s styling won’t stray too far from that of the current model. These new spy shots pretty much cement that rumor in as fact, as the greenhouse of the prototypes looks very similar to that of the fifth-generation car. From what we can tell, the front end also appears to slightly resemble the current car, while the back is too covered up in camo to make any assumptions.
The poster who put the photos up on Camaro 6 says almost every one of the Camaros spied testing was some sort of performance variant. Every car let out an unmistakable V8 rumble as they drove by and no V6s were heard. Chevrolet has obviously remained tight lipped as to what will power the new Camaro, but just like the current car, a V8 and V6 seem like the most likely options. Camaro chief engineer Al Oppenhesier was quoted in saying the car won’t receive a four-cylinder engine option, but we’re taking that information with a grain of salt. If sales of the four-cylinder 2015 Ford Mustang are strong, we could see Chevrolet changing its mind on the matter.
