Concept vs Production

In the past GM was criticized for creating great looking concept interiors and very disappointing production versions..

But we all heard GM VP of design, Ed Welburn say that he believes that the new Camaro's Production interior is even better than the Concept.

So now that we have gotten to know both - and many of us have sat in the production interior.. which is better?

Concept

Production

I personally think the Production interior is very sharp looking, even better than Concept.

Although I'm not yet completely sold on the interior, it certainly is better than the concept.

I thought it couldn't get any better than the Concept's. Then I saw the production Version and almost smacked myself for underestimating the camaro. The production version looks amazing, though there are a few things I wished they kept: The fully white Interior with Orange Stitching and that Awesome Shifter. Other than that, it couldn't have been much better. Except if a bag of money was sitting in the seat.

Not because I ordered it, but honestly I do like the prod over the concept. Amazing that they could actually get it to look better and probably more comfortable and (I HATE the expression) "user friendly", but it just seems...better.

the concept was just a little over the top (as a lot of concepts are)...the production is a little more down-to-earth.

The concept was also un-doable from a cost and engineering perspective as well. This is usually the case with concept cars.
