Not being bias, but I dig ours better.

Front end doesn't click with the styling.

Hood looks like a JC whitney creation.

Just can't do the tails.

Southern Comfort 04-30-2013 09:38 PM

I just hope it's like me - better looking in person...

Cleancoupe 04-30-2013 10:21 PM

Looks better than the SS for sure. I think the wheels & the black hood make it look better.

TripleB 04-30-2013 10:21 PM

Man, I hated the tail lights when the refresh was revealed...seeing them on the ZL1 there, they look worse. They're just so plain. The Camaro lost its distinctive styling on the rear end with this refresh. It just doesn't flow well with the rest of the car.

Brian 1LE SS 04-30-2013 11:11 PM

No splitter for the 1le? I wonder if the old rear can be swapped for the new one?

HighMtnSS 04-30-2013 11:23 PM

I'm not diggin' the refreshed looks at all...

That rear end looks hideous... :barf: The tail lights don't match the style and are too plain. The license plate recessed area looks like a big box shaped dent. The rear diffuser goes way too high on the rear.

I don't know what they were thinking...:facepalm: Some people will like it. Some won't. I'm just glad I got a 2013. The rear end looks so much better IMO...

Same here, really glad I got a '13.

Cooley 05-01-2013 08:36 AM

The trunk spoiler looks hideous. Makes the whole spoiler look out of place. The rear still looks butt ugly.

I like the exhauster with the vinyl hood. But the car looks watered down now.

I and G.M. are happy I won't be shopping for a car this year.

And ours just got a little more rare...

Gotta love that our 2013s just got a little more rare with the 2014s coming out looking like that and no I'm not a fan of the changes, but I am very happy I got mine.:nod:

mcsoul 05-01-2013 08:56 AM

I can't say I like the rear diffuser much on the 2014 nor the tail lights.

However, the way my psychology works; if the 2014 turns out to be faster,
it will start looking better and better. That may not happen though. I'll
always regret that I could not buy a 2013 1LE new, and I'll probably pic up
a used one in the next 2 years.

When they decided they were going to change the front and rear ends they really had no choice but to go away from the quad tail lights. Circles have been done, C5-C6 Corvette. The oblong trapezoid looking shape has been done, C7 Vette. I guess they could have slapped four triangles back there but whatever they do the complaints are going to start rolling in. I love the 2013 1LE as much as anybody but I am really excited about getting a 2014 1LE. I cringed in horror as much as anybody when the 2014 was revealed on that cheesy talk show but it grew on me in 2 days and now to the point where I will have no regrets. The complaints about the C7's rear have slowed to a crawl and it's only a matter of time before people start coming around with this new design. It is possible to like both styles, at least from my side of the fence.

I'd still be excited to get a '14 too. Sure I like exterior styling of the '13 better but those Recaro seats would have been nice. Like most things, there are trade offs. '13 or '14, either way, both will be fun as hell to drive!

That pic is a good angle. I like the front and the heat extractor on the 1LE. Ditch the chrome strip. The back is another story; I think a dark color is necessary to hide the diffuser design. I think the tail lights can be fixed pretty easily with some tinted or nicely designed aftermarket replacements. Much like the current tails, which I think are not good looking in stock form, a small change like blacking out the surrounds makes a night and day difference.

I think the colors that make the 13 pop, the colors with big contrast, will have the opposite effect on the 14. I think on the 14, the more you can blend the better. Dark color and tail light change and I think you have a winner.

I think a lot of you guys might like the non-RS better. It has no chrome lip and has the same brake lights as the Z/28. That is what I plan on ordering, a non-RS 1LE in white.

I think this about summarizes it for me as well.....off to shop a 2013 1LE.

Blah!! :barf:

Evidently these test drives take a pit stop at the Beer Cave... :nod:

For the record, this thread was just an FYI link to check out the latest pics - not to stir controversy over the changes.

It settles a couple rumors:

1) 1LE 14 gets a black hood like the 13
2) rear spoiler is definitely different. Just watch your fingers when closing...
3) got a look at the new ZL1s - changes are not as dramatic

Did anyone foresee the 1LE chin spoiler was going away?

cbass 05-01-2013 02:04 PM

Makes a 2013 1LE very rare. The 1LE was produced in the 2010-2013 body style for only one year and to top it off it was a late introduction in the model year.

Mojave 05-01-2013 05:11 PM

2014s will be fairly rare as well given that the C6 is right around the corner

Not really. I was worried when I saw RLHMarines' thread but was hoping it would still make an appearance. They probably omitted it cause it didn't fit with the new "performance enhanced" body changes. I think the price of the 1LE package should drop without the splitter. GM thought a lot of that splitter. Look how much they charged for the Dusk edition and the Hot Wheels edition.

You could also have it painted body color. I think that would offset the imbalance some....It would be an improvement. :)

Casperadub70 05-01-2013 05:44 PM

Do you think they will come out with another stock body kit? If so might just add that.
