You might wonder how many times we are going to report on the same photograph. We first showed you the unwrapped Camaro after Lutz commanded it to go without camouflage, but the photo was no more than a thumbnail. We next brought you a slightly larger version along with photoshopped versions showing what the Camaro would look like in a variety of colors. Now in our (hopefully) final post on the photo, we bring you a high resolution version practically straight out of the camera. You can now inspect all of the pre-production details without squinting at your screen and speculate to your heart's desire.

      I have seen the 09 Camaro at a few car shows and can't wait to get my hands on one. I will be getting a gray one ASAP. The lines are awesome and the inside is very clean and futuristic. How can any Camaro lover not love it!!!

      With the huge C-pillar and tiny windows, that thing will have absolutely horrendous visibility.
        • 7 Years Ago
        I don't think I'd sacrifice visibility for style considering style doesn't matter when your car's been crushed by the 18-wheeler you couldn't see.
        • 7 Years Ago
        i'd gladly sacrifice some visibility for style.

        that said.. i don't think visibility will be bad at all.. it's not a well known fact.. but you dont even have to look over your shoulder to see your supposed "blind spot".. the door mirrors will do just fine. Most people have them pointed in too far and have much of their own car visible.. you should not be able to see the side or rear of the car at all in your side mirrors.

        on my car.. i have them set that way.. if a car is passing me.. i can still see the rear of the car in the mirror by the time the front of the car comes into my field of vision

        I don't know about you, but I need to have some of my car in my side mirror. It adds a bit of perspective to what is seen in the mirror.

        Unless someone has a neck injury, I can't think of a legitimate reason to NOT look out'n'back. It takes, what, like half a second?

      wow, the comment system blows goats...my second comment appeared but not the first. oh well, anyway, i said i liked it.

      cool...it has a sunroof! I think that would be a first for a 'maro if I'm not mistaken. Usually converts and t-tops were the drill. Good move General.

      Is it just me or am I bugged when car manufacturers can't paint match the color of the nav/sat antenna to the color of the car? Makes the car look cheap.

        agreed on the antenna.. but considering this is a test car.. we dont know if that's part of the test equipment or if it'll be on the final car.. we also don't know if it will be painted on the final car or not .. since this car is so clearly unfinished

        @Farris.. there is a very good reason to not look back over your shoulder.. you should not take your eyes off the road ahead of you any longer than possible.. and turning your head as opposed to clancing in your mirror is very dangerous

        I was in the same camp as you.. and was ignorant on this issue until an actual police officer told me that it's actually better and safer to have yoru mirrors turned farther out to cover that area..

        I dont understand what you are talking about "perspective".. i've never had a problem with "perspective" since i changed my mirrors to this new method
        • 7 Years Ago
        You aren't supposed to paint the nav antenna, it plays havoc on the signals.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Geeze, a lot of you are very good at finding something to complain about.

      Almost every blog post here has a handful of whiny posts. If you can't handle something as minor as a couple of blind spots with a vehicle, it is pointless to announce your frustrations to the rest of us. Because most of us here could care less what some of you have to complain about.
      • 7 Years Ago
      If you just use your mirror you will only see what is directly in the path of the mirror. Don't kid yourself that its better not to look around. Your eyes have better range than a six inch mirror.

      If you can't take your eyes off the road for a second or two to look around then maybe you shouldn't be driving.

      Do people realize a vehicle can be right next to you, behind your peripheral and ahead of the mirrors range? That's a blindspot. Its why truckers have a whole team of mirrors. They use them to cover the places they can't see by turning and looking. They don't drive by mirror.

      Mirrors are for seeing what's behind you not beside you. And anyone operating their mirros in such a way as to remove the important fixed object from the view you are doing it very very wrong. I don't care if the chief of police said it was OK. Its wrong. You need a fixed object in your field of view to provide perspective.

        my jaw is on the floor

        i had no idea that so many people think that the blind spot is an urban legend

        seriously folks, if you are not consistently checking your blind spot by looking over your shoulders it is just a matter of time until you are the cause of an accident. every single day, i do it every time and i constantly see a car next to me that i could not see in the mirror. it happens every day.

        if you dont believe me, there is a simple experiment that will prove you've just been lucky so far. sit in the seat and have someone stand about 5 feet away from your rear wheel, you know, about where a car or motorcycle would be in the next lane. you will not be able to see them.

        absolutely terrifying

        "Do people realize a vehicle can be right next to you, behind your peripheral and ahead of the mirrors range? "

        Spoken like someone who's got his mirrors aimed at his own car instead of the world outside. If you've got your car's three mirrors aligned properly, there is no such thing as "behind your peripheral and ahead of the mirrors[sic] range."

      +1 on the mirror comment. no one listens to me about this.
      • 7 Years Ago
      make that the first mirror comment. you don't have to have a part of your car in the mirror. and why turn if you don't have to? it's safer to keep your head forward and just glance at your mirror.
