With a profile that harkens back to the 1967 original, the all-new sixth-generation Camaro looks pleasingly familiar, marking a subtle styling evolution over the previous model. But don't let that fool you. The new Camaro is a delight to drive, with dynamic prowess that can give even snooty European sportsters a run for their money. But as a daily driver, you might want to think twice because outward visibility is atrocious.
