Looking at the Camaro concept, I love the styling.
But I started thinking ... why did the 4th gen F-bods fail? People throw out a lot of reasons (no marketing, etc. etc.) but the one that comes up most is the fact that they basically turned the car into a 2+2 Corvette. At first, you say "What is wrong with that?". Nothing if you are a 100% performance junkie. Unfortunately, by making the car this way (difficult ingress/egress, difficult to see out, low seat/ride hight, small backseat and trunk) they limited the market considerably. Mustang's continued to sell because ladies could get in/out more easily, and in general the car was easier to live with on a day to day basis.
(Please don't shoot me for making these comments. I have a 4th gen and I love it, but I understand why it wasn't an overall success with a larger portion of the general public.)
So now I'm looking at the Camaro concept, and I'm wondering ... did they fix these problems? It's hard to see from the photos, but I'm not so sure they did. (It's looking like they made another 2+2 Corvette that looks like a '69 Camaro.)
What do you think?
