Default OK, so I did modify one image from Christmas Eve...

I obviously 'modified' one of the images from the Christmas Eve release to show how one the KeeksCAD images matched this new image.

I realize that there are those who may have wanted a better look at the shifter **** that I covered up so here it is. Unmodified.

Unmodded...I can't really tell much more from this image as far as the shifter ****. Certainly, most would say it is a 7 speed but I can't really tell from this pic. But you can see just behind the shifter the bank of indicator lamps a little better than before.

Just playing it in GT5 based on the gear ratios it has to be a 7 speed, even though it only let's you go up to 6.

Can we just get the whole owner's manual released?
It'd give me something to do while waiting this last week before the reveal.

Then we can get all of those "RTFOM" responses out of the way early.

I adjusted the brightness, contrast, and blew it up a little. You can see it's a 7 speed. R is down to the right.

Some of you guys have nothing better to do than complain about non sense such as the AC Knobs. Where do you guys come up with that stuff?? Here is the 2012 Camaro dash.

The only thing that I see in any of the new C7 interior images that comes even close to the Camaro would be the steering wheel. I'd bet that will be the next thing you guys complain about! The A/C ***** in the new Vette drawings look NOTHING like those in the Camaro! Get over it already or move on to the Nissan forum!

I was getting ready to say the same thing. They are far worse than the Camaro tail lights. I think that is the most hideous aspect of the Camaro ( the entire interior is actually).

Well, at least two of us looked at the "pictures" at the top of this thread and immediately saw the similarity. I'm very sorry if we have "nothing better to do" than see what we see. And the pictures you posted simply reinforced my opinion.

You can't make any interior judgments on a flat textured CAD render, it is pointless and insane to do so, for all you know those ***** could be carbon fiber.

Fair enough. I just dont see it. The ***** in the Camaro look different to my eyes and serve completely different functions from what I can tell. The Camaro ***** seem to be multifunction and also in the Camaro, there does not appear to be any A/C control interface short of those *****.

In the C7, it would appear that there is a complete A/C control panel located between those ***** and the ***** will likely be used to control seperate driver and passenger temps. In my opion, short of perhaps the size of the *****, I would say the bare a closer resemblence to that of the C6 than the Camaro.

For what its worth, my comment was directed at a couple folks here who do nothing but start new threads or post in various threads day in and day about their distain for the new C7 and it's resemblence to the Camaro. Their constant rant has gotten very old already.

That looks like a Volvo on steroids. Sell it to girls from Berkeley with hairy legs.
