click above to view the new Camaro spy-shot in high-res

General Motors has released another shot of the production Camaro making the rounds on its test track and this time we get a nice view of the front three-quarters. According to the FastLane Blog, the Camaro "is quickly evolving into final form," however, things like the headlight design will likely change before all is said and done. The itty-bitty pic doesn't divulge much, but it does prove that GM is sticking as close to the concept as possible. And just to let you know, we're already looking for a larger version of the pic.

UPDATE:
High-res version of the pic added.
UPDATE 2: You knew they were coming. CamaroZ28.com forum member Rampant has provided us with images of the new Camaro shot in a rainbow of colors.

      i tell you it is impossible to please some people

      this is just ridiculous, the production version is shaping up to be remarkably close to the concept car. ever occur to you guys that they production version might have to be a little taller and that maybe the unflattering lighting and color of this development mule have something to do with which you prefer more?

      it looks fantastic and is almost sure to be the best vehicle of its kind ever made. look out m3.

      im not even going to get into how stupid it is for someone to comment about how they boring or unnecessary they think a post is.

        disliking the car is one thing but i will never understand the logic that has people complain about "ruining the surprise" of a new model when they frequent an automotive news site

      Am I the only one who isn't particularly fond of these last two Camaro pics? I LOVED the concept, but to me this pre-production version just isn't the same. I can't put my finger on why, but to me, this pre-production version seems very toned-down. Heck, maybe it's just the white color...I dunno

        I really couldn't agree more. Somehow this car has that 80s GM vibe - sort of generic and on the lower half of the quality scale. Maybe it will drive well. I can't put my finger on it either but it just seems...bleh.

        No, you're not alone. There's something about it that looks, uhm, wrong... :(


        It's like it's fat or something. It's a Chevy Mustang. :(

      That looks beautiful. Just stunning.

      Let's see: white paint (which makes any car look bloated), blacked out grille, dark wheels, shot on an embankment.

      Of course it's not going to look perfect, you dolts! Now STFU already!

      It looks virtually the same as the concept which is exceptional. I'll pass on the new Challenger for the new Camaro. If the Ute really doesn't make it Stateside this is going to be my next ride. In blue with black stripes.

      Strange design.

      Sexy curves, but simply fat and plasticy. In concept the front and rear aren't bad but in execution; very "plasticy American fleet car" - front and rear looks like what they are; single pieces of large plastic slapped on ends of car, no cool little touches to make it interesting, chrome or black bits - especially the tail-lights and the strange headlights.

      And its simply too dang big. Give me a 3/4 model with a V6 and I'm down. Especially if it was a Pontiac Firebird!

      But it isn't exactly ugly. Love the interior.

      Everything forward of the doors looks like fibergalss pieces ordered from the back pages of Car Craft.

      I'm not a huge fan of the concept--I like some of the things it does, but think it's overall awkward in proportions. This mule, however, looks bang-on. White's not my choice color, but the proportions and the faithfulness to the things that make the concept good are very pleasing.

      So we know it looks good, it will have a great engine, and with IRS will probably drive pretty well. Here's hoping the interior doesn't totally blow it.

      The Camaro panels look too thick or heavy (Grand AM cladding) like they are made of plastic. That might make sense for a test mule. If the production car has the same look it won't appeal to lots of pony car fans.
