C5 rear end revisited...with pics!

So I'm on duty all day on Easter Sunday and decided to try and figure out why I have this crazy disgust for the 14 rear end. Here's what I came up with...
(Please pardon my very limited ps skills)

WHAT EVERYONE THOUGHT IT WOULD LOOK LIKE:


WHAT WE ACTUALLY GOT:


SO...I WONDERED IF IT WAS THE NEW DIFFUSER THROWING MY EYES OFF...

THEN I WONDERED WHAT OTHER IDEAS WOULD LOOK LIKE...

HMMM, NOW DROP THE DIFFUSER...

WELL, THAT LOOKS ALMOST IDENTICAL TO CURRENT C5, HOW BOUT STINGRAY TAILS?...

HMMMMMM....HOW BOUT A HYBRID REAR?...

YUP, I KINDA LIKE THE HYBRID IDEA, BUT IT'S 2AM AND I'M BARELY FUNCTIONING MENTALLY...LOL
WHATCHA THINK? Aftermarket ideas maybe?

I was thinking the same thing, hahha!
I would get this car, and slap a new front facia on it when some aftermarket options become available.

Imo you don't want a total clone of the new vette style or it looks goofy. You want to get ride of the end black corner part like this.

When I opened this thread, I thought it was going to be about putting a C5 Vette pumpkin, drive shaft, and axles on a Camaro.

This must be one of those trick questions...lol. You'd basically have a 10-13 Camaro with stingray tails.

The new tail lights with the old back end look good. The new vette back end looks hideous on the camaro and the new vette.

Yep, the orange rendering looks pretty good (assuming it wouldn't have the diffuser go way up the back). Basically a 2010-2013 w/ 2014 Tail Lights. I like that and would consider it a slight improvement over the 2010 - 2013 car, but the Corvette guys would go ballistic if that had been done.

The Corvette rear on the other hand is absolutely horrendous. Taillights are fine. The rest of the rear is horrid.

OMG...what you say in the first post is what everyone thought the redesign would look like is the worst thing I've ever seen! I haven't seen such a HUGE, angular, hideous rear end on an automobile since the Aztec was introduced...but maybe GM can produce that one with a pop-out tent and call it a Camparo...lol. You can't take a car that's basic design is based on curves and slap an angular rear end on it and call it done...it just doesn't work.
