I feel the opposite. I don't like just about everything on the 14' and it makes my car looks tons better.

Not a good design

Not feeling the front fascia or rear tail lamps at all. WHY change the best car Chevy has put out in decades this DRASTICALLY to something that doesn't advance to looks of the current model?? I'm keeping my 2012 and shooting for the 2013 ZL1 as my next model Camaro.

Yeah, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Hasn't the Camaro been one of the highest selling vehicles amongst its peers for the past couple of years? Why change that?

It reminds me of when the NBA decided to change the basketball that one season for like half of the year, for no reason at all. Every star complained relentlessly and it was eventually switched back. There was just no reason to change something that was already perfect.

My God this redesign is horrendous. They killed the look of this car. What a shame... the Z28 could have been incredible, but not with the redesigned front and rear.

Wasn't that reported in the thread from the NY auto show? From some of the guys on site. That's what I'm remembering and was surprised that these mufflers weren't painted. Maybe just the SS?

Liked the squished front end on the SS and Z/28 mock ups.
but the rear on all of them are terrible.

What they should have done is gone full LED tails like the Technostalgics instead. that would get far more looks than those.

those are garbage..

another WTF is why is the RS V6 getting the V8 NPP exhaust?..

Will be interested in seeing the first 3-6 month sale figures - the chart will tell us what people think of the redesign.

Yes, that will be the telling tale. If the sales figures improve, it will mean they have tapped into a different market IMO.

Sorry...the new design is not growing on me at all. I still think the tail lights are completely hideous and the front is a step backward as well. Seems like GM went backward just like they did back in '74. The '70-'73 was a great design '74-'77 was horrible, '78-'81 mehh in between but still not that great.

I just have a feeling the sales numbers are going to be down some once the '14 comes out. Lets hope they get it right with the 6th Gen.

Good news.....I think the resale value on my '10 is going to continue to stay about where it's at.
