The new Camaro is likely to be based on the long wheelbase Alpha platform.

The larger distance between the rear quarter window and the fender crease and a more tapered roofline suggest that this is not a die for casting the current generation Camaro’s panel.

Likely to be based on the long wheelbase Alpha platform (which also forms the basis of the Cadillac CTS), the new Camaro is expected to weigh lesser than the outgoing model, though there are no concrete reports which put a definitive number on this weight loss. The American media predict that, thanks to its lighter weight, entry-level variants of the new Camaro could receive a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, rivaling the new Mustang EcoBoost.
