CHEVROLET CAMARO-BASED ‘CIVIC SS’ IS THE GM-HONDA PARTNERSHIP GONE WILD

This Rendering Is A Different Kind Of USDM Special

Chevrolet Camaro Honda Civic SS

Earlier this week General Motors and Honda Motor Company announced a sweeping partnership that involves everything from technology and battery licensing, to platform and engine sharing. And it didn’t take long for somebody to go wild with their imagination. Take a look at what Brazilain artist Kleber Silva has just created a rendering that may make Chevrolet Camaro fans cringe: a hypothetical Civic SS.

The Civic SS is a rather self explanatory vehicle. The rendering starts with a Chevrolet Camaro SS as the base, before Silva carefully crafted some major styling elements from the Honda Civic onto the V8-powered bruiser. The entire front fascia from the economy runabout has been translated to the Camaro, as have the rear tail light treatments and wheels. The render may feature a few misplaced panel gaps, but the proportions are there to get the design across. The resulting sports car rendering is actually pretty handsome, somewhat resembling the Genesis Coupe from a few years back. Honda hasn’t made a sports car with a front-rear layout since the beloved S2000 left production, making the Civic SS feel alarmingly right.

Perhaps the uncertain future of the Chevy Camaro is another factor towards our acceptance of the Civic SS. MC&T were the first to report that the seventh-generation program originally in the works went stillborn, marking the second time the muscle car is expected to go on hiatus. We may find ourselves more attracted to these types of renderings once the Chevy Camaro is a fixture of the past. Should Honda ever decide to bring us their own “Civic SS” via a proper S2000 successor, there is about a snowball’s chance in hell that it’d feature a glorious 6.2L V8 engine. At least the S650 Mustang will be around for the better part of a decade, not that Camaro fans want to hear any part of that.

  1. A Honda badge on my beloved Chevrolet Camaro… That’s so wrong on so many levels.
    Old man Honda would just build HIS own sports coupe instead, and that’s what Honda IS missing !

    BOWTIE POWER !!!

  2. Why would you make a Civic look so ugly? Seriously this is hot garbage written all over it, you have taken an elegant car like the Civic and gave it GMs HIDEOUS Hypemaro design..WTF is wrong with you? I guess it was this guys first day using Paintshop? Just look at how BMW, Toyota did with the Turdrpa and you will see this will NEVER happend, Civic doesn’t need the Hypemaro bringing it down!!

    • Its not the first time moron. GM has used Hondas engine in the VUE for years. People try to act like they know about cars.. Go knit or something.

      • The only reason I bought a GM car (2005 Saturn VUE), because it had Honda’s engine and transmission. 15 years of problem-free driving.

  3. ☺Greetings everyone!
    I would definitely will purchase one!
    I hope Honda will fabricate something like this!
    Honda is more than capable to make a vehicle that can stand, if not surpass the performance of any muscle car represented in the market today!
    Just imagine:
    – A Honda Civic SS or any model from Honda or Acura with an “F1 engine”.
    Blessings to everyone and have a wonderful day!

    • Honda already did surpass gm when it made the 1.6l engine. I take pride in making a gm car look bad when I beat it off the line with my 91 civic.

  4. Honda is for females only! If you drive a honda and you’re a man, you’re probably from san Francisco. Keep that not straight stuff on the honda side and keep American cars American!

    • What are you? 8 years old? That’s not even a personal attack towards you. It’s alarming that an adult still thinks like that lol. What else do you crutch your personality on? You’re not a man. You’re a lil boy looking for lil boy-friends to circle jerk with.

  5. If I wanted to buy a god dam Honda I would have..some of these car manufacturers need to get some new designers….maybe I should have gone with dodge….let’s take a dodge designer an see what they can do for Chevy…

    • You people crack me up.
      Just because of a single idea, your willing to shut down everything with these cars.
      If people like em, cool
      If you don’t like it raiding on your parade… Don’t buy one.
      Look at Pontiac for example. They made Trans Am. But they also made the Aztec. I don’t ever see people hating on Pontiac for a bad design.
      And it’s an example.
      Please don’t come at this saying that in, well if you notice Pontiac is out of business.
      If ya like it, cool
      If you don’t, enjoy your Chevy or Honda as it is.

      • It blows my mind how butthurt people get over a damn drawing by a man in Brazil! This isn’t from anyone at GM or Honda, just a dude messing around on his computer, and next thing you know people’s feelings get hurt because they see a Honda badge on a Camaro, or a Chevy badge on a Honda that looks like a Camaro!

  6. The civic front end looks terrible since 2003.. I am ok for Chevy to help Honda with modern engine but Honda designers has got to go.

  7. You guys cant really be serious with some of your comments. Car makers have been sharing ideas, designs, and platforms for years. This wouldn’t be GM’s and Honda’s first collaboration. The Ridgeline was a GM and Honda collaboration. Dodge how you think dodge get so popular there collaboration with Mercedes. Look at the new GM trucks. Spin off of the old front end of F-150 and the front end of the 2018 lincoln mark lt redesign. Ford and Lincoln expedition and navigator share body lines with the Tahoe and yukon. Ford has a 10 speed transmission they put in the F-150 they collaborated with GM. All these car companies are sharing. Before its over with they are goingbto be madevin the same building

  8. I recently bought a Honda Civic Sport Touring and I thought that it was a little more sportier than it is. I kinda like the way this one looks. Something about this mix seems so wrong but looks so nice. Honda needs to step it up a bit for themselves.

  9. Are you stupid?!? This is an American icon, I’d rather see you discontinue the Camaro than pull a stunt like this. Also, this is not about being anti other vehicle manufactures, Camaro, Corvette, Chevy trucks and yes Cadillac too, don’t mess around like that!!!

  10. Honda Civic SS just seems so wrong. BUT, I can see aftermarket companies dealing with the Honda emblem and putting a Chevy emblem on instead

  11. So wrong. Its a disgrace to the icon that is Camaro. You should be ashamed and banned from the car world. I am a die hard chevy lover and now you have disgusted me.

  12. Lol how old are you guys considering your all men…sound like idiots and yall definitely did not read it lmao this was an artist’s interpretation…men act more like women than woman do pathetic

  13. I don’t care what anybody thinks that’s just wrong as far as I’m concerned what a way to ruin a beautiful car it’s all I’ve ever drove my entire life with GM cars I’m sorry I don’t care Hannah name tags have no business on any GM gar let alone the Camaro

  14. Honda should stay honda I’m pissed that that Chev made a 4 cylinder Camaro but this cross breeding is an abomination . I like amarican cars because I find them easer to work with now your going to pollute the idea of the Camaro and put all that gobly gook in it

  15. every Honda in the world is slow asf and im not exaggerating. they are great cars and last a long time but they are strictly for females and families. American muscle all day baby

  16. Looks great love my older camaros should build something like a 69 Camaro body on it but newer technology engine and tranny and suspension
