But GM would never do this, or would it?
An artist shared his digital rendering of a mid-engine Chevrolet Camaro on Instagram and it’s definitely thought-provoking. We drag the waters of social media for interesting car renderings all the time, bringing you the ones we find just so incredibly cool and sometimes the horrendously awful. But sometimes we run across something like this which makes us sit back and really think for a moment.
Check out renderings of what the next-generation Camaro might look like here.
Not everyone is a fan of the Camaro’s current design. Sure, some people dig it and that’s great, but the lackluster sales seem to indicate a lot of people just aren’t that into it. And while it might seem like a wild idea, because it is, perhaps GM should consider changing the Camaro up by putting the engine behind the driver and passenger.
We know GM won’t actually do this because it would be an affront to the Corvette. That would be like Porsche making the Cayman legitimately quicker than the 911 – that’s sacred ground upon which you don’t tread no matter what.
Obviously, this rendering borrows heavily from the C8 Corvette, especially with the side intakes. While we’d want to see some changes if such a thing were made reality (and it won’t be, trust us) this looks good enough to convince us a mid-engine Camaro is a great idea (which GM will never use).
Ever since the debut of the C8 Corvette, artists have been going wild with renderings of other American icons as mid-engine models. That shows just how impactful the big switch for the ‘Vette has been and likely will continue to be. But we’re wondering what everyone else undoubtedly is thinking: will another mid-engine American car debut sometime in the next few years? We’ll have to wait and see.
In the meantime, we have renderings like this one to enjoy. Let us know what you think of this mid-engine Chevy Camaro.
