New Camaro Tail Lights and Side View Mirrors Revealed! (possibly export model)
16 Attachment(s)
Featured on HOMEPAGE.

Seen here are the first significant cosmetic revisions to the 5th gen Camaro since its debut last year - featuring new Camaro tail lights, rear bumper reflectors, and side view mirror designs. As previously spotted on Camaro convertible prototypes at Oshawa, the new tailight design takes on a new shape resembling sunglasses. The lights are now powered by LED bulbs. The rear bumper reflectors have also been revised and have been moved into a more attractive location at the top of the rear diffuser.

The side view mirrors grow in size and lose some sleekness (possibly to comply with new more stringent pedestrian safety standards). Turn signals have also now been integrated into the side view mirrors to enhance safety.

If these are in fact production intent facelift changes, we're not sure exactly when these new lights will begin appearing on Camaros, but the 2012 model year switchover may be a good bet, which doesn't occur until middle of 2011.

NOTE: the location of this sighting (in Germany) indicates that some or all of these changes may be intended for export only. Time will soon tell.

I hope those tail lights are unfinished prototypes or something.

What's hanging between the mufflers, maybe off the diff??

Side mirrors and tail lights are horrid. They look to please a European crowd or something.

:word: yucky

i like the side mirrors have turn signals but they are HUGE, no good, and the l.e.d. lights are nasty, they need another cover over them and they might look fine.

Rshep 10-06-2010 11:00 AM

I hope that is some kind of twisted joke cause the mirrors and tail lights look like sh!t!!!!

ZED SLED 10-06-2010 11:01 AM

OMG! Are you sure that wasn't modded for Elton John?:barf:

Boy am I glad I bought a 2011, and did not wait. That is absolutely horrible GM. Way to kill a good thing.

MARTIN 10-06-2010 11:01 AM

Those mirrors are gigantic....a parts bin item? Maybe a Tahoe? LOL

Pro Street 10-06-2010 11:01 AM

I do not like the taillights or the truck looking mirror!

Jenifers bee 10-06-2010 11:01 AM

:yikes: Not digging the stubby mirrors either.

crussell83 10-06-2010 11:02 AM

Synergy_9 10-06-2010 11:02 AM

Leolee 10-06-2010 11:03 AM

actually those side mirrors look like the ones that were for the japanese camaros

RoyalKev 10-06-2010 11:03 AM

Ugh looks like crap, notice the tow hook spots on the front and rear bumper, those are new also.

Merc 10-06-2010 11:03 AM

cab2g 10-06-2010 11:05 AM

I figure I can grow to like the taillights, but those mirrors??? Please tell me those are just prototypes! WOW, those look like girly SUV mirrors, why make them square shaped??????

MARTIN 10-06-2010 11:05 AM

Could be an export version.....

RichieRich 10-06-2010 11:05 AM

Don't ask me why, but this reminds me of the metal bolt that's sticking out of Frankenstein's neck!

Dino 10-06-2010 11:05 AM

That is in Germany near the Nurburgring... I am not convinced these are changes as much as customizations for the European crowd... What's your source on these being actually released in the US (not to be a dick, btw, just wondering)?

Also, notice the lack of an "SS" emblem? A normal thing to see in Germany on their cars is the removal of badging and model numbers on the vehicle body...

newagemuscle 10-06-2010 11:05 AM

Those mirrors are a joke ... right? That looks terrible if those go production. As for the rear, that is obviously unfinished, but I still like the current design better. Whats with the cage under the car between the exhaust?

Silver Ice 10-06-2010 11:06 AM

Yuck, I wanted my mirror smaller than what I have now
