Chevrolet's muscular showcar does the family proud

As an automotive stylist, designing a Chevrolet Camaro, even a concept Camaro, defines your career. You will either be hailed as the genius who advanced the legend, or blamed as the idiot who screwed up an icon. There's no middle ground.

"I was kind of glad I didn't know how strong of an icon the Camaro was when I was first working on the project," admits Camaro concept chief designer Sangyup Lee. He then scowls at the thought of choking under the pressure of Camaro crazies criticizing his work. MORE

I was just about to post that. What a great article! I love how it ends. . . "Some marketing people asked for more rear legroom and a larger trunk, and we said 'No.'"

I never noticed this before



It has a gas-cap design just like the 68-70 Dodge Charger, very cool touch.

And interesting that this car's chief designer was a Korean, who would've thought?

I never made it to the driver's side of the car at NAIAS...there were too many people swarming...so yeah, I never noticed the cap either but I like it.

Feds require a certain type of gas cap nowadays.
The location may make production, but I think we'll see a standard fuel door (locking rather than manual I hope) and gas cap.

Then again... I suppose there's a way to incorporate that design into the fuel door... hmm...

If that gas cap design makes it into production, they'll at least have to design it so it doesn't become a water trap. That was one of the biggest problems with the old Mopar design - looked ultra cool but when the car got wet, water would always collect around that area - not a good thing.
