The sixth-generation Chevy Camaro is no more, with the final example built late last year. Although GM has confirmed that a next-generation model is indeed in the works, it’s unlikely that it will cradle an internal-combustion engine like the six generations that came before it. Nevertheless, enthusiasts will no doubt always think of the Chevy Camaro as the Bow Tie brand’s answer to the Ford Mustang, and now, we’re checking out two renderings that dramatize this relationship in eye-popping fashion.
Recently hitting our inboxes, these renderings portray the Chevy Camaro as an enormous beast that literally eats Ford Mustangs. The renderings, likely created by AI, show two generations of the Bow Tie brand sports car, including a fifth-generation model and an early sixth-generation model.
The fifth-gen rendering shows the familiar flat fascia and rectangular grille transformed into what appears to be some kind of pavement-surfing shark beast, which is busy gulping down a Ford Mustang in a single toothy bite. The fascia of the Mustang is seen just poking out from the sharp teeth of the beast, obviously helpless in the jaws of the monster Chevy.
The sixth-gen rendering shows a muscular, cat-like beast in pursuit of a Ford Mustang as the two race down a drag strip. The Chevy beast is striped in yellow and black, while the Mustang spins its rear tires in an attempt to get away. By the look of it, that striped Chevy beast is moments away from grabbing its prey.
As the legend goes, the Chevy Camaro name was originally revealed to the press by Chevy manager Pete Estes back in ‘60s during a multi-way phone call to press pools from 14 cities. During the call, Estes said, “The Panther is dead, long live the Camaro,” referencing the Panther code name used internally at GM during development. Estes later explained that the name was representative of a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs. While these renderings certainly don’t show the sports car as a “small” animal, we think the “vicious” part is captured quite well. Ditto the eating Mustangs part.
