Camaros (Trans Ams & Firebirds) used to be unique. You looked at the car and there was no doubt...That's a Camaro.

People will look at this new Camaro and say "Is that a Mustang?, Is that a Charger?, What is that?.....Oh, it's the new Camaro."

I love Camaros but my 1st impression of this new concept is...LAME!


Psssst your mullet is showing ;-D


Thanks for letting me know. I'll pull my hat down. ;-7

Every single car made today that has been made for more than ten years is a new car with an old name slapped on it. I can't stand making cars that look nothing like the one it is named after, and trying to tell us that it's just the next generation. GTO, Mustang, Camaro, Corvette...they're all the same. Just a new car with a classic name attached to attract buyers.

Do they have zero clue what ideas the other manufacturers are working on while designing their own car? They can't have blindly made this design and have it be so close to the Mustang. They must have copied it somewhat - it's too close to be a coincidence especially considering that the original cars were so distinctively separate.

Too bad, really.


Pretty much every since the 90's thats the way auto manufacturing has been. Hardly any vechicles (Hummer excluded) are unique anymore. The 60s and 70s are when cars had the most style. I agree with flotsamnjetsam. One used to be able to tell one car apart from another with ease. I didnt have a mullet but definetely liked the old style of jackin up the rear of a Camaro, Monte Carlo, or TA with the fat tires. Much bolder and tougher looking than lowering a car's frame to the ground.

That's true, but my point is that every 'new' style was exactly that...something new and unique. When Camaro changed styles in the mid 70's there wasn't a car out there that looked like it at the time. Same thing in the 80's.

This car doesn't look unique. It looks like a mustang/charger hybrid with a Camaro emblem on it. That's lame. Camaro is such a popular name for a car and I wish they would have blow us all away with something new.

It looks like the new Mustang and Charger had sex and this was the result.
