It's the portly appearance. Compared to traditional sports cars, the Camaro looks overweight - like a fat girl in a prom dress. The Camaro really has to be lowered to look good - stock height makes it look like a sporty sedan.

The main problem is that the sidewalls are just too thick, and the ass looks huge. The slit windows adds to this fatty look. I think part of the reason why the ZL1 looks better is because the black rear diffusers and rocker panels makes it look slimmer and therefore sportier. Ever seen a fat swimmer/runner? Slim looks fast.
