    It looks just like the 2015 Camaro except it doesn't.

    Thanks for posting this jzchev. Its always fascinating to see how much work goes into the creation of an automobile and how much of a coordinated effort it really takes!

    I wish GM would do an open house or public tours of the plant... I missed out the last time they did them for a day due to a scheduling conflict.

    Pretty awesome, I really like to see how things are made. And these are just assembly jobs. Imagine all the jobs that go into the design, manufacture, and maintenance of all the robots that are being used. That's the really cool stuff.

    you could easily produce 10 hours of video to show everything involved in designing a car from start to finish, considering the developing a new car (from chassis to powertrain) takes 8-10 years. How its made does have literature and video on making engines and there are videos and literature from other sources showing how engines are made. Typical process for producing cast aluminum engine for mass production involves making sand molds and pouring into it molten aluminum before finishing the block. I saw a video of taking a block of aluminum and CNC it into an engine (not the best process for mass producing them).

    Actually, I'm kind of amazed that something so complex can be so inexpensive.

    This is possible thanks to the efforts of many talented engineers.

    Incidentally, National Engineers Week (DiscoverE) is coming up in a couple weeks!
    My modes of transportation: CityBus Greater Lafayette, rental cars (usually GM), bicycling, and walking.

    Interesting that they photograph the engine assembly steps.
