GM Design Team Releases Light And Athletic Sports Car Sketch16
GM is making the transition to all-electric vehicles, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a place for lightweight, athletic sports cars in the GM lineup. Now, we’re taking a closer look at this interesting Chevy sports car rendering.
Recently hitting the web via the official GM Design Instagram feed (@generalmotorsdesign), this rendering was created by GM Creative Designer Casey Swanseger. While it’s not totally clear when the rendering was created or for what purpose, it’s still certainly quite a striking thing to look at.
Looking a bit closer at the details, there are a few hints as to what this thing is supposed to be. For starters, we see a few Chevy Bow Tie badges located on the wheel center caps and on the trunk, indicating that this is some sort of Chevrolet sports car, possibly a future Chevy Camaro design, or maybe a future Chevy Corvette. Camaro, however, seems to be the more likely candidate of the two, given the long hoodline and proportions, both of which suggest that this is some sort of front-engine vehicle, rather than a mid-engine platform.
There’s also a set of what appear be exhaust outlets in the rear fascia, with a large, triangular shape and silver outline. Other notable features are the ultra-thing, Camaro-esque taillights, as well as the massive five spoke, two-tone wheels that full the wheel wells.
The roofline is very low on this rendering as well, enhancing the concept’s sporty attitude with thin windows and a downsized greenhouse. The panels in the profile are sleek and smooth, with two large creases (one high and one low) visually enhancing the car’s lean and low aesthetic. The fenders are also very flared, swallowing up the mammoth running gear with ease.
It’s a good look, and while something exactly like this would never actually make it to production, something similar to this might. We’d certainly love to see it happen.

Looks ok. Needs a V8. And it needs more seating room than the 5th and 6th gen Camaros. My head touched the ceiling on my old 5th gen, biggest reason I sold it.
A modern take on 1970s & 80s Camaro/Firebird. Evident with the C Pillar and, albeit elongated, window shapes.
Spark EV should have been marketed as an RS. Fiero EV can come back as a Chevy. Light and athletic doesn’t need a big battery in a $20k car. People who buy these want cheap, fast, fun cars. Not gas guzzling dinosaurs and expensive long range batteries.
Needs bigger wheels and a smaller greenhouse.
This has 2nd gen Camaro all over it.
Generic, any Designer do, there is no strong language to say this or that
That is hot as HELL!!!!
Expressive as hell, without being overwrought. Beautiful proportions!!
It’s CLEARLY a Camaro.
WAYYYY better than the 6th gen Camaro., which is so watered down it isn’t even funny.
WAYYYY better than the 8th gen Corvette.
GM needs to build that car!!!
“M”, you are dead on. That is a Camaro that crush Mustang/Challenger sales – of equipped correctly. GM – keep the Camaro and build this version. It evokes memories of the Buick Avista we were teased with several years back.
Looks like the mazda vision concept
Now make it a 4 door with the Caddy CT5 TTV6 and better visibility…then I’ll be interested.
Look at the reverse slant B pillar. That’s a Corvette roof. Might have been done in the early stages of C7 design. It’s definitely not a Camaro. No room for a rear seat.
Look at a 75-81 Camaro B pillar and rear window and get back to me…..
This is an advanced sketch, its supposed to set the theme, its not supposed to be a real car, there aren’t any mirrors or door handles on it either on it…oh no!!!
The fact that it has exhaust tips makes me happy……could there possibly be a gas engined 7th gen in the works?
If GM can spend money on pie in the sky cars like the Celestiq, why not spend some money on a Camaro….
That has the proportions of a pinewood derby car
Camaro Concept sketch more than likely due to the long hood, the Next Gen. Corvette is not due until 2029 and the Mid-Engine design for that car is more than likely going to be around for the C9 as well.
Perhaps GM hasn’t gotten the buzz that the current Camaro is a little, well, claustrophobic. Does that play a part in dismal sales? Maybe. In any event, if this shows the possiblity of a new generation for the Camaro, that’s definitely a good thing.
