I'm with you. To me, the current one is a bloated oddly proportioned barge which somehow performs. We rented one for a vacation. My wife hated it so much I had to do all the driving, errands. GM got this one spot right on at the gate but lost sight of what it should be lately.

Imagine a Camero which looks like a '68 but performs like an '18.

Wait for the 7 th gen to be restyled.

Technically it's amazing yet many find the conservative restyle over the fifth gen a little disappointing.

You can't blame GM after the rousing success in sales of the fifth gen for GM to play it safe in keeping the styling evolutionary...

I admire the 6 th gen although I still have a preference to corvette two seat sports cars with targa roofs.

That ZL1 is an amazing performance machine.

Like what the car does just cant get over its size..and proportions.
I understand.....My father had a '67 Camaro, I took my drivers test in the car. I think it was about 28-2900 pounds. 10 years later, I had a '77 Trans Am. It was 3650 pounds, and I thought it was a tad "porky". What are the new Camaros, 37-3800 pounds......with a completely aluminum engine?

1968 came once and the the 1968 Camaro, not camero looked great for 1960s
If you want a 1968 Camaro look alike, you can always buy a 1968 Camaro

Agree with all suggestions. Back in 2013 I was in the market for a new car, I looked at the Challenger, Mustang, and Camaro. Both the Camaro and the Challenger looked too slab sided and lacked proportion, especially the Camaro. I Bought the Mustang.
