Chevy 100: Sneak Peek at the Next Impala?

Velocity HD (formerly Discovery HD Theater) has been airing a special celebrating 100 years of Chevrolet called Chevy 100. I DVR'd it and had a chance to watch it tonight. Very well produced and I highly recommend it to everyone here. Our very own F-Bodfather was featured in it.

Towards the end Ed Welburn gives us a sneak peek of a upcoming Chevy for around 2014/2015. He doesn't say what it is but I was thinking Impala, but I just noticed that this car looks to be a hatchback, so I don't know. I know this is just a mock up, but I am not impressed with the Volvoish rear..............thoughts?

These pics. didn't turn out very good since they are screenshots from my HDTV taken with my phone.

The rear.....


Part of the hood.....


There is lots of behind the scenes looks in this show, lots of shots inside the design studios. I saw a lot of interesting looking artwork and designs in the background.

I really really want to see the rest of that car. The back looks great.

It looks small and the hood scoop points to performance. Maybe this is why there's no Cruze SS. We might get a completely new hatch. Something like Hyundai did with the Veloster.

It doesn't look that small to me. I really like the fastback look and the rear quarter windows suggests Impala to me.

Re: Chevy 100: Sneak Peek at the Next Impala?

I like what I see, but for some reason that looks more like a concept car than a production car to me.

Re: Chevy 100: Sneak Peek at the Next Impala?

Definitely a concept and nowhere near being ready. The materials don't look right. It looks like a design exercise.

Re: Chevy 100: Sneak Peek at the Next Impala?

Looks too narrow to be an Impala. also, size wise it looks small for a Zeta based car but has the proportions of a RWD so what would the chassis be? Alpha? Just thinking outloud here.

edit: Isn't Alpha supposed to underpin the next Camaro and a Chevy Sedan? 2014/15 timeframe sounds right for the Chevy Alpha Sedan.

Re: Chevy 100: Sneak Peek at the Next Impala?

In the rear it looks very Audi A7'ish. It would be kinda cool to see the Impala end up with a non-traditional sedan silouette like that. Not too sure what else it could be other than the Impala. It doesnt look like a small car to me, although the greenhouse looks a little narrow.

Re: Chevy 100: Sneak Peek at the Next Impala?

If they are showing this "unveiling" during a discovery documentary, it will probably be at the auto show in Detroit, on Jan, at the same time as the Dodge Dart unveiling. It does look like a concept, but also looks not too far off from being production ready. Kind of like the camaro keeping fairly true to the concept.

I hope so. GM needs a "Charger".

Re: Chevy 100: Sneak Peek at the Next Impala?

GM is supposed to debut the production ATS, a production Buick baby SUV built on the Gamma platform, and 2 Chevy concept cars in Detroit. Maybe this car will be one of those.
