It looks like there some changes in store for the Chevrolet Camaro – the only thing is that we just don't know what Chevy has up its sleeve. Looking at these spy shots, we'd initially be inclined to think that there is just a minor facelift or a new special edition, but upon closer inspection, there are a few oddities about this car that definitely have us intrigued.

The most obvious difference on this prototype is the slightly restyled front fascia with a smaller lower air inlet and the two-bar grille. Then we get to some of the car's mysterious details. For starters, this fascia has the SS vent above the grille, but it looks to be blocked off. Granted this could just be a one-off piece used for testing. What really piqued our interest was at the rear of the car where it has quad exhaust outlets that are used on the ZL1. Could this be the LS7-powered Camaro that we reported on back in December?

At this point, your guess is as good as ours as to what we're looking at here, so let us know in the comments what you think this could be.

      Why don't they update the tail lights with the LED set in Europe?

        Because then the back would be ugly too. Those euro tailamps (which I helped develop) looks like, light up sunglasses you'd get from a carnival.

      The front grill redo looks a little more aero and smoother than the previous look. Nice.

      This car is nothing but a still used old drivetrain tester from pre-09. The front grill in this one was on all the camo'ed mule cars, remember.... the ones with the make-shift headlights. It indicates really nothing. It could be a LS7, LT1 or any other modification to the current drivetrains that need emissions or durability testing. The Camaro V6 bumper with the SS mail slot was prototyped at one point early on, on the mule cars.

        .....to add, GM regularly recycles the mule cars. Most of the ZL1 test cars, including the car on the stage in Chicago where it debuted were OLD test mules that you saw a million pics of in camo from from 07-09.

      AngeloD , right, cause what we really need is more regulations and restrictions. -_-

        There\'s a reason that the Gov. steps in to situations like this: the automakers never ending quest to top each other in terms of putting styling way ahead of safety. Sorry, I am not a big government person at all, but if Toyota insists on producing a vehicle as hazardous to other drivers as the FJ Crusier, and GM insists on gun port sightlines on the camaro, then they need to be regulated. They obviously don\'t have the common sense or maturity or sense of responsibility to show any restraint in this area absent government regulations.

      Wheel wells are rounded too...like the '67 & '68. Most recent (other than this) were more like the '69-a little squared off.

      Camaro is becoming very stale, very fast. I don't see this design evolving well over the next several years, unlike what Ford has been doing with the Mustang. Corvette designers need to give a serious look at Camaro.. because the car can be much better.

        As a two time Camaro, and one time Trans Am owner, I can't say the Camaro is beautiful. I can't even say it's "OK", but I can say it's horrible. Awful. Fugly. Ford seems to be trying to ugly the Mustang up, it looked great 5 years or so ago, and the next generation will be awful, if the previews are any indication. I really hope Chrysler doesn't screw up the Challenger. So far, looks wise, it's the clear winner..

      Spy has a good eye. Looks no different to me, especially in the dime-a-dozen bumble bee trailer park option pkg.
