This Could Be the Most Realistic 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Render Yet

Over the past few months we have looked at quite a few renderings of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro with some being outlandish and some being just plain gross, but the artwork we are featuring today of the 6th generation Camaro could prove to be very realistic based on what we have seen and heard over the past year or so – with a look that is an evolution of current models.

General Motors has done a masterful job of keeping the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro away from the prying eyes of the automotive paparazzi shy of a handful of spy shots showing a very well camouflaged test car. There have been plenty of rumors of what the 6th generation Camaro would look like and many of them suggested that the 2016 would draw its inspiration from the 1970 Camaro, but off-the-cuff comments by GM brass and inside information has suggested that the 2016 Camaro would be more evolutionary than revolutionary.

Based on that, uber talented automotive artist Theophilus Chin put together a 2016 Camaro rendering that I think just might be the most realistic thus far.

Theophilus Chin’s 2016 Camaro
Upon first glance at the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro shown here, you might pass it over as nothing more than pictures of the current 5th gen Camaro. From front to back, this 2016 Camaro looks a great deal like a slightly evolved 2015 Camaro with the biggest changes coming in the dimensions of the car. The artist has lengthened the wheelbase and shortened the overall length of the Camaro, giving it a longer looking front end – similar to that seen on the 1970 Camaro.

The front end has been tweaked and the back end has some new taillights, but the basic appearance is very similar to the 2015 models – maybe too much like the current Camaro. However, the altered wheelbase and length gives this 2016 Camaro a longer portion in front of the windshield and a cabin design that looks set back a bit; while the back end remains relatively unchanged with the exception of the new taillights.

Remember, the rumors indicate that the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will have some 1970 inspiration while GM officials have stated unofficially that the 2016 Camaro will be more of an evolution of the current models. This rendering combines some inspiration of the 1970 Camaro with what is unquestionably an evolution of the current Camaro exterior design. Also, if we were to cover this car with automotive camouflage, it would look a great deal like the Camaro test cars caught in spy footage.

Why Change What Works?
Some Camaro fans are surprised to hear that the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro wont be a vast departure from the design of the current models, but when you consider the fact that the current model has been the bestselling sports car in America for 4 straight years (while also leading the sales race this year), it isn’t hard to see why GM wouldn’t want to make any big changes. The current look of the Camaro is obviously resonating well with buyers so why make a massive change when a slight refresh will take already strong sales numbers and boost them a bit?

Nice guess but I don't think it'll look like this. It's nothing but a smaller, meeker looking 5th gen. My guess is the latest Transformer Bumblebee is one telling from the current trend in car design and the upcoming model of its arch enemy Mustang. Thin glaring headlights with a huge grill in between.
At least I won't need to trade my 2011.
