In the latest peek-a-boo of the redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Camaro Monday, GM showed portions of the sports car’s profile and nose. The next Camaro maintains the current car’s pillbox grille and cab-rearward layout, but the roofline stays upright until it’s well over the rear fender; then it slips, fastback-style, into a short trunk lid. The flatter roofline and thinner C-pillars could signal a bigger backseat and better visibility than the current Camaro, which suffers in both regards.
GM cites improved aerodynamics, with elements like an underbody plate that stretches from the front bumper to the center of the vehicle, to reduce overall lift by 30 percent. The automaker says the new Camaro spent 350 hours in wind-tunnel testing, with hundreds of millimeter-sized changes throughout.
