    Is it just me or does this look kinda Ford - Shelbyish???

    And +1 for the keeping the t/a with sexy flowing curves...if they go boxy retro I think it would just keep our cars more valuable cause they actualy look GOOD! IMO ALL the concepts look like PISS

    The fron end is too boxy. I like the big rear, maybe a little more curvy but the front needs work.

    I have a hard time believing that the soon to be Camaro will sell as well as the Mustang GT 500... A Camaro that isn't producing equal or greater horsepower is going to be a sinking ship. Might as well go buy an old 3 Gen and a crate motor...

    I mean I think GM could build a competative car and keep it under $40 Grand. The problem is they don't think or even try. They want to add too much unnecessary accessories that are useless in a Muscle car. Who needs an Onstar when you want to hear the rumbling of the exhaust?

    As for a Firebird version coming back on the scene? Maybe, but I find it highly unlikely at the momment. Pontiac has much invested in the continuation of the GTO... But GM did renew it's licsence on the name "Firebird" but that doesn't say much because they also renewed the name "Fiero" and who really believes the "Fiero" is coming back?

    ok bud, listen Mustang GT500 does 12.7 at 1/4, the Vette with the same power does 11.6 at track. so.. I with a few bolts on '99 TA can pull 12.7 @ track.. A camaro will come out and do better than GT500 for sure... not the same power but Camaro will have 400-450 at crank and whoop GT500. that is a very good incentive to buy Camaro..

    The new firebird spin-off looks okay...it kinda resembles the new dodge challenger. That car looks bad to the bone. They kept a lot of original body lines, and hopefully if and when they produce it, the car will still look as good. Its the first concept car I have seen that I dont want them to change anything about.

    I like this one a lot it moves forward but still keeps some of the strong styling cues that made the last year the best.
    I agree, Pontiac has always thought ahead, not back, thats what made the Firebird desirable. I think so at least.

    id love for a new T/a to come out but it WONT happen GM said so. They are bringing back the camaro and ive heard the gt will be back but if they bring back the gto and the camaro and the T/a gm wouldnt make as much money because they would have to produce less of each car and drive the price up IMO. one of the three would have week sales and would get dropped.

    Yeah, ive noticed a trend in vehicles thats making me sick. Fast cars that look like a rolling brick. Miniature buses if you will. Thats NOT a sportscar, thats a boat with a really expensize price tag and wheels. How about something sexy and edgy like this

    I like this one the best myself.

    If they make them boxy then the cars will not be as quick as the 4th gen thanks to their wonderful sexy aerodynamic body
